Attraction details
Owner description: As you lie on the table under crisp soft cotton sheets, the hushed sound of ocean waves and calming music draws you in. Slowly, you begin to relax. The faint smell of coconut oil helps center you, as the massage therapist gently warms the oil in her hands before beginning your massage. The tension and pains of your throbbing and overstressed muscles, together with the simple need for a healing touch cry out for therapeutic hands to start their work. As the massage session gets underway, the problems of your world are released, and you fade into 60 minutes of pure bliss–a wave of calm and relief brushes over you, allowing you to fall into a deep place of pure relaxation. You emerge from the session, peaceful, centered, and rejuvenated, ready to experience more of Nicaragua. Energy Touch was founded by Amanda VanderArk, who is a U.S. nationally certified massage therapist and body worker. Before relocating to Playa Coco Nicaragua in January 2012, Amanda offered professional therapeutic massage services for a chiropractic practice and spa in Michigan. Energy Touch creates custom tailored experience for the body and mind, using a range of therapeutic and all natural body treatments. The compassion at Energy Touch will assist in the relaxation of the body, rejuvenation of the mind, and in the renewal of the spirit.

“Relaxing massage - great addition to my beach getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We spent 5 days at Playa del Coco - a very relaxing getaway. Amanda came to the house where we stayed (Casa Mariposa) to give massages to two of the people in our group - they were very happy. I got to go to Amanda's beautiful cabana on the beach for my massage. It was a wonderful experience - the warm wind, the birds singing, the crashing of the waves all made it a great part of my stay and a total getaway from the stresses of everyday life.

“Nicaragua Dreamin'!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

The setting for my massage was like nothing I had ever experience. The sound of the waves, the light breeze of the coast and the well-guided massage of Amanda made this experience a delight to the senses. Within an hour I was transported from my hectic life back in the States... to one of Playa del Coco's best kept secrets!

“Beautiful spot, great massage.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I went for a weeks vacation, stayed on Playa del Coco. Amanda was great, available on very short notice. Her spot is beautiful, right on the ocean, very relaxing. I was in my first trimester. She did amazing relaxing job. Next time I visit I am absolutely going back for a massage. I would highly recommend the trip for a massage.

“Massage for the Mind Body and Soul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were visiting for a week in Playa del Coco from the States to get away for a week from the day to day stressors, and wanted to have an enjoyable full week getaway. Amanda was available to provide us with a much needed Energy Touch Massage - it was absolutely phenomenal.

The setting, the experience, the massage from Amanda and her expertise in Energy Touch Massage is highly recommend over any other massage therapists in the area. Amanda by far provides one of the best massages in the area, and the setting is gorgeous. The massage doesn’t take place in some stuffy closed in office or inside a home, but rather it is right on the ocean front in a private setting.

While Amanda is getting you prepared to receive your massage you can actually see the ocean. During your massage the breeze of the ocean wind comes across you to carry away your stressors as you are listening to calming music. You can hear the ocean waves to help quite your mind further during the massage.

Amanda provides a full body massage, and she will move you into calming your mind, body, and quiets your inner spirit. You will be in total relaxation and it will be priceless to your soul.

“Massage Treatment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Amanda is first class in her professionalism, focus, thoroughness and confidence. Her setting is relaxing and peaceful, as is her presence. The massage treatment itself was a complete, full body relaxation massage which is appropriate in this holiday setting. I would highly recommend her for this type of massage.
