I took a Reiki workshop with Karen a couple weeks ago and it was an amazing experience. At first I was a bit skeptical about it, but then as she taught us, with data, and hands on experience I started opening up. As I have been practicing on myself and others I have learnt to really appreciate Reike, life and... More

Karen is professional, reliable and goes out of her way to get to know her clients so that she can best serve their needs. My boyfriend and I joined Karen for a half day private retreat which included a Reiki Level 1 certification for each of us, bodywork/massage, guided meditation and ample time for discussion/questions. She even prepared traditional Costa... More

I went into this day-long retreat a little hesitant about what it would be (although still excited), and it was so much more than what I could have hoped for. Karen did an excellent job of devoting her time to teaching our small group of 11 people about what healing is and how we can thoughtfully improve our own lives... More

Karen combines her training and education to foster health in others through her yoga classes, her massages, and her Reiki instruction and application. She also has a wicked sense of humor. I know because I've experienced all with her. She has chosen Monteverde for her home, however Karen could practice her gifts of healing anywhere in the world and be... More

I had a Mountain Massage with Karen during my stay at the Hidden Canopy in Monteverde. It was one of the best massages I've ever had, and I have nothing but great things to say about Karen. She is very knowledgable, and really helped me work out the knots in some problem spots. I highly recommend scheduling with her during... More

Dear Charlotte E, The Mountain Massage is always custom-created for a client's needs, and I'm glad we were able to work out some knots in some of your problem spots. Indeed, receiving a bodywork session is a wonderful way to spend part of an afternoon, after enjoying many of Monteverde's outdoor and adventure activities. Thank you for your kind review! More

I recently had the pleasure of enjoying an amazing massage from Karen. Her simplistic and comfy studio space is the perfect getaway in the heart of Monteverde. Karen's techniques and suggestions were fantastic. She is very knowledgeable with human anatomy and worked on a shoulder problem I had, while also explaining her personal concerns. I walked away in bliss and... More

Dear Mari Z, Thank you for your visit to Revive Healing Arts!

Karen's massage studio, tucked away in Monteverde, is a beautiful, intentional space for relaxation and healing. She is a talented massage therapist, and I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

Dear chelc737, I am glad to know that your experience at Revive felt whole, calming, and rejuvenating. I do believe when we can come closer to understanding the root of our painful physical symptoms - whether through injury, chronic use patterns, stress, etc., we are better able to work with and release them. I appreciate your recommendation! More

I often think back to my two amazing massages with Karen in Monteverde. I have to say she is one of the top two intuitive massage therapists I have ever known! If you are tired from your travels you should book a treatment before you arrive at the cloud forest. In fact, book two sessions because you will want to... More
