Karen is tied for my best message ever, I would categorize myself as a committed message enthusiast, so I have a fairly large sample size!! Karen’s techniques are amazing, her energy is warm and healing, her message space is peaceful and the overall experience is A+++. Karen clearly has a very strong and in depth knowledge of the human body and it is evident in her work. If you are in the Monteverde area you MUST take 1 hour and treat yourself to one of the best messages you will ever receive!

Having Karen's magic touch has left me transformed in mind and body...not kidding! She knows what by body needs as an athlete and as and educator and she tailors her massage exactly to my needs. After having a massage from Karen, I feel like I can accomplish anything and the tension and stress of the week has disappeared. Thanks, Karen, for your healing and for your craft!

I have had a LOT of experience with different types of massage over the last 10 years, and Karen's healing and vibrant touch is definitely one of the best I've experienced. In addition to an amazing deep tissue massage, the energy flow and intention coming from Karen during the massage made it truly a holistic experience, and left me feeling relaxed and healed. Whether you are traveling through Monteverde, or living here, I cannot recommend strongly enough a stop into the lovely, relaxing space for some of the best massage work going!

My experience with Karen at Revive was absolutely wonderful. From the time I walked into her studio to when I left, I felt comfortable, welcomed, and completely pampered! Not many people have a talent like Karen. Whether for healing needs or just to treat yourself, Revive is the place to go.

I had 2 wonderful massages with Karen , the first one was nice, relaxing and soothing , the second one was a very profound and healing experience, not only I have a physical release of tension, I also let go lots of emotions and sadness.
She is so much more than a physical therapist, she is a Holistic one!
If you go to Monteverde ,she is a MUST to do!
