After a few long days of hiking and traveling, my shoulders and knees were cramped and sore. When a friend suggested a massage from Karen, I jumped at the opportunity. Before the session, Karen checked in to find out what I needed and where I would benefit from the most attention. She was amazing - the session was incredibly soothing... More

When you treat yourself to a massage with Karen, you are in for a true pampering experience. I received my massage at C.P.I. Spanish institute in their spa room. The sound of falling water was relaxing. Karen begins & ends the session with the lovely sound of bells. She is very intuitive & applies plenty of pressure so the massage... More

Karen's healing energy draws me back again and again. Karen is in tune with what you need, listening carefully with more than her ears. Intuitively, she knows what you need better than you do.

Located at the original Monteverde Community, on the side of the famous Monteverde dirt road, her place is warm and cozy. Karen understanding of body mechanics is amazing, and she really makes magic during a one hour massage. Karen worked my neck and hips until I was ready to face the road again.

During my short stay in Monteverde, I had the chance to receive an hour massage from Karen at Revive Healing Arts. I came in with a stiff neck and shoulders from my occupation as a technician. Karen worked her magic for an hour, stretching and massaging, opening up my upper body. She also took the time to show me some... More

Revive is a lovely small hideaway in the Center of old Monteverde where healing and rejuvenation are daily experiences. One does not expect to find someone with Karen's expertise when traveling to remote places, but she is a true gift and highly trained.

I found Karen through tripadvisor and booked an appointment after reading all the positive reviews. Karen really does have magic hands and a gift! I had massages in many different countries while traveling and this was by far the best! I recommend to book this relaxing experience on your stop in Monteverde.
