Lee now has an assistant and is offering massages for couple as well as four-hand massages for individuals. She has really brightened up the décor and it was, like a few years ago, a terrific massage.

Lee is fantastic, and knows what she's doing. Have had massages by many professional therapists, and my wife and I agree - Lee is one of the best. Her studio is set in a breezy, quiet, peaceful garden in the heart of Placencia. We'll keep going back!

I was expecting a great massage based on the reviews on TA. Maybe my expectations were high, but this was a very middle of the road massage at best. I have a tennis ball in my car that does just as well.

Today I had the great pleasure of relaxing with a wonderful massage from Lee. It was absolutely fantastic!! Setting is beautiful ~ you feel like you are in a tree house with the sounds of beautiful music and birds chirping. I carry my stress in my shoulders and Lee knew just how to work out the knots in my muscles.... More

I was fortunate to walk in off the street and get a 90-minute massage. Lee is magnificent--talented, strong and intuitive. She knows how to work out knots and provide an invigorating and relaxing massage. Her spa room, set above the Secret Garden restaurant, is like a tree house! So nice to have a breeze and birds as part of the... More

This is my first time to do Swedish massage. It turned out to be great. While doing massage, the music was played. You would feel like in a jungle with fresh air. Our muscle sourness due to canoeing was totally relived. Lee is truly an brilliant professional. Highly recommend!

While on my honeymoon in Placencia I got a 1 hour massage with Lee. It was incredible. I walked out of there feeling so great. I would definitely recommend seeing her if you are in town. I get a massage weekly back home and they do not compare. When I go back to Placencia I will be getting another massage.... More

The owner, LeeAnn, was professional and timely in greeting us for our couples massage. Only having a few massages previously, hers was better than others I've had in the past. I would definitely recommend The Secret Garden and will return on our next trip.

I went to Lee because my scoliosis left me unable to turn my head to the left without pinching my neck. Lee took care of it! I got the best massage I've ever had. After a deep massage and alignment therapy my pain was gone! Thank you Lee! I feel so much better and stronger and aligned inside and out.... More
