As you lie on the table under crisp soft cotton sheets, the hushed sound of ocean waves and calming music draws you in. Slowly, you begin to relax. The faint smell of coconut oil helps center you, as the massage therapist gently warms the oil in her hands before beginning your massage. The tension and pains of your throbbing and overstressed muscles, together with the simple need for a healing touch cry out for therapeutic hands to start their work. As the massage session gets underway, the problems of your world are released, and you fade into 60 minutes of pure bliss–a wave of calm and relief brushes over you, allowing you to fall into a deep place of pure relaxation. You emerge from the session, peaceful, centered, and rejuvenated, ready to experience more of Nicaragua. Energy Touch was founded by Amanda VanderArk, who is a U.S. nationally certified massage therapist and body worker. Before relocating to Playa Coco Nicaragua in January 2012, Amanda offered professional therapeutic massage services for a chiropractic practice and spa in Michigan. Energy Touch creates custom tailored experience for the body and mind, using a range of therapeutic and all natural body treatments. The compassion at Energy Touch will assist in the relaxation of the body, rejuvenation of the mind, and in the renewal of the spirit.

I had not had a massage for a year and was really feeling tight in my shoulders, head and feet! I told Amanda to concentrate on those, which she did, but she also discovered a really painful spot on the left side of my back! She worked on that very thoughtfully with just the right pressure and it really made... More

Amanda listened to my requests and in worked them into a unique and very relaxing massage. She's very skilled and aware of tension sources that became very evident throughout the massage. Highly recommend experiencing a session first hand if you have the chance.

Amanda gave me a perfect masssage and was really taking care of my particular areas where my muscles were tight and sore. I also learned a lot about treating these areas to prevent them from injuries during sports. Thanks a lot for the perfect treatment and I am looking forward seeing your again.

Amanda is a super talented masseuse and she's got very strong positive energy. The massage was Swedish style, super deep, soothing music playing. Amanda had set up a massage table on the verandah overlooking beautiful hills and farmland. The scene was perfect for some much needed relaxation. I had been on a super intense journey and was struggling to relax,... More

I had an amazing massage with Amanda, practically right on the breathtakingly beautiful beach, but with enough privacy to completely relax and reach a blissfully meditative state. What could be better than a skilled massage in the warm afternoon sun to the rhythm of Pacific waves? I've had many massages, most in fancy spas, including paying quadruple (seriously!) at Mukul...

Amanda is a lovely lady and very skilled at massage. There are "massages" and then there are what Amanda does, which is beautiful and relaxing like a massage but with added benefits of healing and energy balancing. I slipped into a meditation I was that relaxed. And then afterwards the benefits of a peaceful mind and relaxed body lasted over... More

Amanda was very friendly and great atmosphere, well worth spending a bit more to have super high quality. She went above and beyond my expectations and helped me relax and enjoy hearing the waves while getting a massage. Amanda is very professional and did a great job.
