Body + soul: massage therapy in Puerto Escondido, Mexico
People often ask if I worry about getting sick in Mexico. The truth is I come to Mexico to get healthy. With lots of fresh fruit and sunshine, long walks on the beach, yoga and massage, Puerto Escondido is a do-it-yourself wellness retreat at a fraction of what it would cost in Toronto. This past winter, I had a good fortune of meeting Beata Jesionowski, a massage therapist from Poland (via British Columbia Canada) who now calls Puerto Escondido home. Those-in-the-know swear by her healing (and some say magical) hands. Now, massage therapy is part of my get-healthy plan.
With 30 years of experience and a natural intuitive touch, she offers holistic massage therapy in your home or at her studio in the heart of Puerto Escondido. Even the products she slathers on is organic (avocado, coconut and grape seed massage oil infused with natural lavender essence). The coconut oil comes from Oaxaca and the lavender oil is supplied by SAJE Natural Wellness based in Canada.
Their 100% pure ingredients are environmentally friendly and support the body’s natural breathing, living and healing functions. They are free of parabens, SLS, SLES, PEGS, glycols, petrochemicals, synthetic colours and synthetic fragrances. Can’t go wrong with that.
Massage therapy has been proven to offer a vast array of benefits from alleviating low-back pain, enhancing immunity, strengthening muscles, improving the condition of the skin, boosting circulation and lessening depression and anxiety. So, if you’re coming to the coast of Oaxaca and want to kick-start a wellness vacation, give Beata a call to get set up for your massage in Puerto Escondido.
