After receiving a disappointing massage at our resort, we rode our bikes into town and followed Trip Advisors recommendation for The Secret Garden Spa. We were NOT disappointed! Lee has over 20 years experience and it showed. Her niece worked with her and she was just as good! My wife and I are "Massage People" and this was probably the... More

I have had several deep tissue massages but this was by far one of the best I've ever had. Lee is so pleasant and very good with her techniques. She finds the knots and works them out without pain. I have had many deep tissue massages all over the world and Lee is amazing. If you have the time, this... More

No surprise that Lee has been doing this for 20 years. My massage was excellent and she put in extra work on my problem areas. I will definitely visit her again on future trips to Placencia.

I went to Lee to treat myself to a morning Swedish massage and was not prepared for how amazing of a massage I got. Even with my budget, the splurge was worth every penny. Lee's hands are magical and she doesn't leave one part of the body untouched (appropriate areas, of course). I left her studio so relaxed and at... More

If you let it, Placencia will chill you out. But if you want to insure you get there quickly, let Lee help. She provides a strong, blissful massage that left me relaxed and happy in the treehouse of the Secret Garden. Most Caribbean/Central American massage practitioners do not have Lee's professional talent for deep and soothing work. We would highly... More

I happened to see the sign in front of the Secret Garden, walked a short path to a little gazebo where Lee has a sign up board for massage. The hour I spent under Lee's strong, talented hands was a highlight of my vacation. She has a gift.

"Hands down" one of the best massage experiences I have had in Placencia. A beautiful setting in the tree canopy, gentle breezes, curtains fluttering like butterfly wings, early morning background sounds of a village coming to life. All of the wonderful ambiance aside, Lee is a talented massage therapist, who knows her business. The pain and stiffness in my neck... More
