Karen is magical...that's really all you need to know....she's going to be your person. I still get teary eyed talking about how amazing my experience was with her. I found her through a search online for "healers in Costa Rica" while I was mid-vacation and longing for some healing. I recently lost 2 very significant people from my life and... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in Monteverde for a week and when we asked our host about possible massage venues, she recommended Karen at Revive Healing. Karen was amazing! We each had 90-minute massages and they were definitely one of the hi-lights of our trip to Monteverde. Her space was great, the location was awesome and she had fingers... More

Karen's massage space is a feast for the eyes and her massage is a feast for the body. The massage table sits in the middle of a most peaceful space, with walls painted in shades of sky blue and a strand of white lights adorning one wall. I gladly made myself comfortable on the pre-heated table and settled in for... More

I originally came to Monteverde in September 2016 to do a Reiki level 1 and 2 course with Karen. I felt incredibly nurtured, guided and supported by Karen that I chose to stay on and do the Reiki level 3 course also. Monteverde is a magical setting and was for me the ideal place to do the Reiki level 1,... More

My partner and I both enjoyed incredible one hour massages from Karen. She has exceptional knowledge of the body and uses beautiful natural essential oils that are divine. We were both feeling a little run down from travelling and now feeling revived and completely relaxed. Thank you Karen!

I emailed Karen only days before coming to Monteverde asking her for a personal retreat. Although she was really busy, she answered straight away and tried to fit me in and help me the best she could. She gave me the warmest welcome and some great massages and advice. I felt much better afterwards. I would recommend her to anyone!

I knew I wanted a massage with Karen as soon as I heard a Monteverde community member raving about her. I made a point of introducing myself right away and was in to see Karen later that week. Karen synthesizes her extensive knowledge of the body, with her deep knowing of its needs and wisdom. I was immediately invited to... More
