I have been visiting Santa Teresa, CR regularly for over 10 years and, when there, I never miss an opportunity to have a massage (or two!) with Julieta. I prefer super strong deep tissue massages and Julieta never disappoints. Her strength is astounding; even for the 2-hr massages I spoil myself with. She manages to zero in on all the... More

Julieta performed a "Cranio-Sacral-TherapyTreatment" that deliver nothing but a true Healing to my serious lower back issues. She is, not only, a fine-tuned professional but, most importantly, she brings to the session, knowledge, great compassion, and a warm aura that puts you at ease from the beginning. Top notch!

After a week of surf lessons and yoga, Julieta's hand were magical! She's a professional and while enjoyable to knows and focuses where your muscles need more attention! After our first massage with her, knew we needed to see her again before we left. For such a petite lady, she has amazing strength!

My husband, daughter and I had massages on the beach by three wonderful, professional and knowledgable massage therapists. I've had tons of massages in my day and these guys were awesome! Plus the smell of the sea and listening to the waves, OMG, it rocked!

I found Julieta through other Tripadvisor and I was so happy with her. First of all, the location is great, right on the beach in an outdoor setting but very comfortable as it's not on the sand but in an outdoor massage room with tiled floor. She's extremely talented, she worked on my back and my husband's and we were... More

Beautiful Location - very private and shaded hut right on the beach. The crashing ocean, breeze through the trees and birds chirping provide an amazing "sound track". Therapist was excellent, professional, would love to go back someday!

Maribel and Greg are very experienced and highly skilled therapists. Whether you are looking to undo some nots, fix an injury or simply bliss out and relax, they are definitely the right people to call. For a unique experience, I would recommend going to their location and get the treatment in their beautiful open Rancho facing the beach!
