“best massage ever, only 20 soles!”

Nueva Vida Cusco Massages
Ranked #12 of 33 Spas & Wellness in Cusco
Attraction details
Reviewed August 5, 2012

My friend and I stumbled upon Nueva Vida Massages while browsing Tripadvisor, and decided to go try it out after returning from the 5 day Salkantay trek with non functional leg muscles. Having had cheap massages in various countries before, I went in with the expectation that while the massage would be relaxing, it wouldn't be amazing either. I was wrong. This massage was the BEST freaking massage I've ever gotten in my life.

Nueva Vida is located on the 2nd floor of a little courtyard. There are girls sitting at the entrance advertising "Lady massage massage!" like all the other massage girls in Cusco do. Do not ignore them. They are the Nueva Vida ladies. The massage room itself is very simple, 8 massage beds separated by curtains, definitely not 5 star spa status. They kept the lighting dim and played some chanting music to create an ambient setting. For only TWENTY SOLES/hr, I am not complaining. According to the massage lady, the massage is a combination of hot stones, Swedish, deep tissue, Incan, basically just a jumble of every massage type out there. The girl who massaged me was SUPER good and super thorough. She actually applied force when massaging my muscles instead of just lightly running her hands over like some other masseuses do. The girl massaged my scalp, shoulders, back, arms, legs, and feet, and even went over the 1 hr limit by a little.

TL;DR: This was the best massage of my life. I wish I discovered Nueva Vida earlier on during my stay in Cusco. I would've gotten a massage every day.

Fantastic hot stone inca massage for just 25 soles. Something to sooth those post Inca Trail legs.
Cusco seems to offer two ends of the scale when it comes to massages. Beautiful spa massages at a price or offers of massages while you walk around the main square but you're never sure what they could mean.
I did some research, found this place (with a website) and opted for them. Sure you can probably have a more salubrious room but for this money, you wont do better. Technically very good and the hot stones were great! Enjoy.

Massages in Cusco turned to a very confortable experience, 1 hour and a half give us the relax we needed...especially if you come back from a tour.
Miss Matilde was very kindful and professional,
Her place is very quiet, very near from the main square, on the second floor.
It´s the best massage i´ve can ever experienced.
Highly recommended if you take a tour in Cusco, Peru.
