Energy Touch: Custom Tailored Body Therapy

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.

I have found when situations present themselves as this, discovering the most incredible beach in the country and then the icing on the cake... finding Amanda to make your day one of the most memorable of your trip- Don't pass it up!!
Everything about the massage was perfect. The warm morning fresh air on the pacific coast, the waves just yards away, the massage table at the sands edge and Amanda with healing, invigorating, energizing hands to help you melt into a sort of dreamland.
Many thanks Amanda, i will return and tell friends to pass your way.

How do you not love a massage on a beautiful, tranquil beach? It's difficult. But here is what makes this totally worth it (also captured well by previous reviewers): 1. Atmosphere and the natural soundtrack of crashing waves footsteps away. I recommend getting a massage in the morning for the cooler morning breeze. 2. Amanda's holistic approach to wellness. The massage itself was great and Amanda took the time to make sure she was aware of any areas of concerns you had. My legs were especially sore from hiking Volcan Concepcion the previous day and Amanda brought out a soothing oil that she had concocted herself. After the massage was over, she provided feedback on what she picked up on during the massage. Great person, beautiful setting, relaxing massage. Cost is ~40 usd/hr, which is a good value given her experience. Similar massage in the states could be double that.

I thoroughly enjoyed my massage with Amanda at Energy Touch. Her spot was located right next to the guesthouse where we were staying and it would be difficult to imagine a more beautiful, peaceful spot to get a massage. The outdoor setting, the lovely music, the sound of the waves, and the smell of the coconut oil combined with Amanda's competent hands made for an incredible experience. Highly recommended. Thanks Amanda!

I fully enjoyed the massage offered by Amanda! It was really relaxing and the setting is beautiful and adds to the relaxing experience! I liked that it wasn't just a physical massage but included a feedback with a more holistic approach. I will definitely repeat this experience!

This was my very first massage. It was an incredible experience. Amanda was very sensitive and the massage she provided was excellent. I don't relax very well and she was able to get my body to relax during the massage. I wish that I was staying longer so that I could have another massage from her. The added experience of the ocean, listening to the waves during the massage was amazing. The atmosphere was to die for. Amanda is an incredible woman and masseuse. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a special experience and massage.
