After a day of adventures in the rainforest, why not treat yourself to a rejuvenating massage? Joyce Martinez, our massage therapist, lives in Punta Gorda and regularly travels to Cotton Tree to offer massage services in your private cabana. She trained in reflexology and reiki with a physical therapist in Belize City and has been working as a masseuse and auxiliary nurse for the last 16 years. Joyce is also an avid gardener and studies aromatherapy. She makes her own massage oils with local ingredients like homemade coconut oil, ylang ylang oil, bird pepper, and herbs.
Joyce's positive attitude and warm personality are part of the experience.In her own words, "When I first put my hands on a body, the body tells me what it needs. I use many different techniques, depending on the situation. Each massage is different; as each body is differentI like to make people feel good. That is why I stick with massage. To me, that is the most fantastic thing about massage, watching a person move from where they are, up to a higher level. People should get a massage once a month. Including me!"
