I have a number of life-long back issues and it was only here after a hip replacement and back surgery in the US that I become completely mobile again. I visit regularly to keep myself mobile and never do I have to think about my insurance company cutting me off. Thank you Micky, Brenda, Angelica, Lillian, Marisol ....

I received three massages from Healing Hands over the course of a 3 week stay, from 3 different masseuses, and all 3 were fantastic! I recommended Healing Hands to several other people during my stay. 2 of them did not take my advice and went somewhere else closer to the center of Antigua...long story short, they regretted not listening to...

The massage was OK, just beware that they charge 8% if you use your credit card, but this is not stated in the website or brochure. I didn't feel a lot of enthusiasm from my masseuse, Lillian. She started late, but ended on time... I don't understand why this spa is so highly rated.

Hi there, Thanks for sharing your experience and sorry you felt duped by the convenience charge on the credit card. You must have missed the large sign near the entrance and the other by the counter where you paid to make our customers aware of the charge. Credit card companies kill small businesses in Guatemala with astronomical fees. It's common... More

I went to Healings Hand for a therapeutic massage because I was having trouble with my sciatica in one of my legs and various lower back problems. I asked the massage therapist to concentrate on those areas. I was so impressed by her techniques and how much time and energy she spent on those particular areas. Yet she still massaged... More

I was visiting my daughter in Gualemala and was having extreme pain in my neck and upper back. I did some web search and came upon Healing Hands site. I called and made the appointment on the evening of our arrival in Antiqua! Wonderful experience, the very best massage I have ever received and the price was more than reasonable.... More

I will be back as often as I'm in town. Mariosol (sorry if I misspelled that!) is a fabulous therapist. Appointments were easy to make. Pricing is exceptional. The facility was nice. By the end of our time in Antigua the whole family was going. My only complaint is that the location can be a little loud as many of... More

I decided last minute to book a massage on a Sunday when the spa is generally closed. I emailed and received a response very quickly and was able to get a massage that day. All the staff were extremely friendly and the massage was exactly what I needed after two overnight buses and hiking. I had Angelica, and would recommend... More

My husband and I visited Healing Hands this week while in Antigua and just had a really wonderful experience. We received the Romantic Interlude package (90 minute massages + pedicures) + manicure add-on for me...and wish we had booked additional treatments upon leaving, but time our limited time in town didn't permit. The massages were relaxing, with great pressure and... More

I have had two massages here and both were excellent. The young lady is named Marisol and she has been there a long while. I had a wonderful massage and felt the effects for weeks after. I can't wait to return to Antigua and planning a visit to Healing Hands while I am there is a must. Thank you Marisol!!

I have chronic back pain that I manage okay but after slipping on some steps in the first day in Guatemala, the pain was managing me. I emailed Healing Hands, got a quick response and the schedule I needed (in the evening since I was in Guatemala City all day). I had a deep muscle massage and it was the... More
