THE COSTA RICA SCHOOL OF MASSAGE

The Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy is the Premier Study Abroad program in

 

the World for Massage Therapy Certification. Committed to excellence,

 

and maintaining the tradition of massage as an art form; the education at CRSMT

 

balances the sciences of the human body, the artistic techniques of massage and

 

bodywork, modern business strategies, and holistic lifestyle principles. An underlying

 

acknowledgment and celebration of the human spirit creates personal and spiritual

 

depth to the program.

 

CRSMT also recognizes and respects the ancient history and essential artistic element

 

of massage therapy and keeps it firmly categorized as a “healing art”.  They create a

 

strong and deep foundation by teaching many and varied techniques while

 

developing and honing critical thinking skills. 

 

CRSMT promotes the Costa Rican “Pura Vida” philosophy and include holistic

 

lifestyle principles in our curriculum. Students learn a balanced and healthy approach

 

to lifestyle and self-care practices through the study of a holistic wellness model that

 

includes nutrition, movement therapies, and fitness. Students are encouraged and

 

given tools to develop and implement their own self-care regimens with the goal of

 

career fulfillment and longevity.

 

"Paired with McKenzie's masterful technique,

her calming energy allows an excellent space for full body and mind rejuvenation.

 

Whether I am looking for relief from everyday stress

or need some more aggressive bodywork done (I highly recommend the Thai :D)

she is attentive to the details my body needs.

 

Her flexible schedule and ability to work around my hectic life

means I can keep up with myself!"

 

- Merritt R.

hands-on skills learned the history of these modalities are

 

presented, along with traditional Chinese medicine, including Qi,

 

Yin Yang theory, Five Element theory, channels (meridians), tsubo, as

 

well as principles of traditional Thai medicine.

 

Students learn the benefits, indications, contraindications, and

 

assessments for shiatsu and Thai massage. They also learn proper

 

application of palming, finger and thumbing techniques, elbow and

 

forearm techniques, stretching, joint mobilization, and foot

 

techniques with the use of effective and efficient body mechanics.
