There are few things in life that melt stress away like a visit to a good spa.
In Costa Rica, the possibilities of getting a good massage or body treatment are as wide ranging as the techniques and products used in Costa Rica.

• Let your therapist know about any physical ailments you have in order to treat the area specifically or not touch the area, if it’s something chronic: If you use the hot springs, do so in 10-minute intervals. Keep hydrated. If you have high blood pressure, let the spa personnel know. It’s better to receive treatments on an empty stomach so digestive activity doesn’t distract from your relaxation, especially if you’ll receive treatments to the pelvis and stomach
