I did the juicing retreat in Jan 2015 and it was awesome. Would do again, definitely. Joanne and Kevin are the sweetest couple ever. All the side activities that came with the cleansing were great: massage, energy healing, acupuncture. I walked out of there a different guy!!

If you have the opportunity to rent a house near Santa Teresa in Costa Rica, give yourself a gift and have Joanne from The Healing Cuisine prepare your meals. Her raw food is delicious, organic and filling. We would all live so much better if we ate like this all the time. Her cooking classes are also wonderful and inspiring.

Recently I participated in a juice cleanse provided by The Healing Cuisine. The juice was fresh and delicious. Everything was provided and the instructions were both written and communicated in person so it was easy to follow. Additionally I found that the timing was appropriate for each drink as they all had a purpose and kept your system running well.... More

I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with Kevin and Joanne and doing their 5 day juice cleanse. Before going into the cleanse I was feeling pretty good and wasn't sure what I would get out of it, having done several different cleanses in the past and also being someone who eats mostly vegan diet with a lot...

This was a great experience from start to finish, my girlfriend and I felt very welcome from the minute we stepped through the door of Joanne's spacious cooking centre. We learnt so much in such a short space of time, and the food just kept on coming. We both left feeling really inspired and well on our way to a... More

This was such a fantastic and spiritual experience.. between staying at a fabulous estate in Santa Teresa and having Joanne as our guide.. I was not prepared for how I would feel. Each day brought tasty juices and raw foods, all of which were explained in depth by Joanne on how they benefit the body. Eating healthy is one thing,... More

The Healing cuisine is definitely THE most delicious and clean food I tried so far! My friend and I did the 2 day raw food and 3 day juice cleanse. Everything got adapted to our food intolerances and taste. Joanne is literally a food fairy, always smiling and comforting through out the cleanse. Really a once in a lifetime experience..... More

We come to stay for a week in Santa Theresa each year. For the past two years we have had Joanna prepare our dinner for us the first evening of our stay. I can say without reservation that her food is amazing! Everything is fresh, organic, delicious and appealing to the eye. The fish with pumpkin seed pesto was the... More
