Are You Tired Of Chronic Pain?

Try the Koontzin Technique - Not Your Typical Massage

Koontzin Tamarindo Massage This approach is what Tamarindo Muscle Therapy is founded on. Only a handful of therapists in the world are trained and certified in the unique Koontzin Technique.

The Koontzin Technique includes very specific manipulation of your muscle fibers, involving a combination of pressure, movement, lengthening and manipulating your muscle fibers in a way that is in sync with your body's natural healing responses.

Proper application of the Koontzin Technique results in the aligning, on a microscopic level, of muscle fibers that have been blocking the muscle's natural ability to flex and stretch pain-free. At times a muscle can not even rest in a relaxed state, due to these fibers that have laid across the grain, (like a patch on clothing), restricting movement and pulling the muscle into a tight and stressed state.

We adjust for how and where the nerves interact with the muscles and your corresponding pain. We determine where you might be pulled out of balance and what the core reason for your pain or restriction of movement could be, and correct the cause with permanent results. You will feel it happening during and immediately after the session, and the results are even more noticeable as your body heals and adjusts over the following few days.

You determine just how deeply we can work, the deeper we work will correspond directly to the level of your positive results and alignment.

Come and experience what it's like to move without restriction and pain-free.

What Are Our Clients Saying?

  • "Raquel/Sheela is a very talented massage therapist. I have had neck problems since I was a teenager & she is able to give me relief from pain. My husband has knee problems and she is the first person that has been able to help him with pain & range of motion. Her therapy is at times painful but the benefits afterwards are outstanding. I would (& do) recommend her!"
    Courtney Schebler Tamarindo, Costa Rica
  • "I recently visited Sheela and she is amazing! I've struggled with a painful shoulder injury for years which has been limiting my ability to surf regularly. She warned me that her muscle therapy sessions wouldn't be relaxing but would be highly effective in reducing shoulder pain and increasing my range of motion. She was right! Thanks to her process of re-training problematic muscles with deep tissue massage and simultaneous stretching, I feel significantly better. I highly recommend Sheela for athletes that want to stay active."
    Clarence So California, USA
  • "Raquel is an EXCELLENT massage therapist! She really knows what she's doing. There are many people you can go to on the beach and pay $20 per hour - the beach massage is NOTHING compared to Raquel. My neck has been going out and giving me headaches- after her treatment- all better! Come and see Raquel, you will benefit greatly from the work she does. Don't go to the beach and get a touchy feely massage. She is interested in helping you 'get better' not just 'feel better'."
    Chris Spears Tamarindo, Costa Rica
  • "Raquel and her mother are amazing muscle therapists. I have had so many injuries they are uncountable. I am 73 years old and have had both work on me. I can spring back from a bad fall, old injuries, etc. Even at my age and keep on going. Thank both of you. You are amazing and worth much more than the cost."
    Sheila Hewitt Washington State, USA
  • "I have had massage treatments done to me in order to fix Carpal tunnel, hip problems, plantar fasciitis, severe neck pain, and of course back pain. When I say fix, that is exactly what I mean. I have had the treatment for carpal tunnel done to me in 2000 and it has not re-occurred. All of the problems that I have had treated have not come back. Of course, I have had other injuries that needed to be addressed but what has been corrected has stayed corrected."
    Patty Villasana Arizona, USA
  • "Sheela you are amazing!!! Thank you for all of your help!!! Well worth the trip to see you!!!"
