Unique spec in time

I am changed and immensely grateful for the experience I've had at CRSMT. I was looking for a holistic healthcare career change as well as wanting to dive into traveling, and when I came across this school, I knew it was right. CRSMT has been a commitment, a challenge, and it has reminded me to surrender. I feel ready and confident to jump into this field of massage and see where it takes me. My class became my family (I didn't want to go back home) and the experience as a whole reminded me that I never have to be stuck in a grind or be stagnant, but that I can always choose my adventures and live a life I am proud of. I was also reminded how much I love the ocean and how powerful it is to be immersed into nature.

After graduating from CRSMT in June of 2021, I passed the MBLEx and applied for my massage therapy license in the state of Texas. I set up interviews with four different massage therapy clinics in the area, and was immediately extended an offer to work at all four locations following the interviews! CRSMT provided me with an excellent foundation of skills in which to build upon, and I am thankful for the confidence and options this education has given me. I am excited to go forward in this career and forever thankful for my experience at CRSMT.

Intense and Impactful

The education at CRSMT was incredibly challenging for me and also confidence building. I'm leaving with the knowledge that I have what I need to start a successful massage career.

CRSMT was such a unique massage school experience. How many people get to say that studied in Costa Rica? It was challenging, fast paced, and full of excitement. The teachers are amazing and bring the curriculum to life. The location is vibrant and rich with culture. Overall, the experience was mentally, emotionally, and physically intense. I have grown so much personally and professionally and can say that I feel very confident in my future as a massage therapist.

Empowering, transformative & irreplaceable experience

Having the opportunity to understand myself and all the pieces that make me a whole, have been irreplaceable. Getting to live with people that inspire me every day, create intelligent vibrations, yet still have all the energy in the world to be themselves and care about me, and have the best time no matter the circumstances. This includes the students, teachers and staff! You WILL gain a family here. When you understand that the people who have chosen to come here are on a similar journey to yours, the light that shines from each person and is shared throughout the entire campus is immaculate.

The amount of instruction and practice time is a lot, but there was no better way to immerse in massage therapy, self-growth, and in a way that always encouraged self-care. You get to experience what it means to embrace every challenge, to be patient, be gentle with yourself, to be uncomfortable, and do it every single day. You CAN overcome challenges and adversity and at CRMST, you will see that you don’t have to learn the hard way. At times it can be exhausting, but the reward is empowering. The lifestyle you create here only reveals your strengths and molds you into exactly the person you would want to become. I fell in love with living by the ocean, and feeling the Earth rotate while watching the night sky. Life here is simple, but there is so much to reap.

Going forward now, I cannot wait to follow this career and use all the knowledge I have now because it is MORE than enough to succeed. The information I have absorbed and experiences I have undergone here are exquisite. Yes, being a good massage therapist is knowing your anatomy and how to touch, which we were taught, but what makes a REALLY great therapist and friend, is every other intangible quality you learn from being here at CRSMT. In the words of Jan, “learning massage is just a byproduct of going to school at CRSMT.” There is so much passion for this industry that you will find here. I know now exactly what it feels like to be completely confident: in myself, my touch, my skills and in this family.

This has been a one-of-a-kind experience. There were times I thought my brain would literally explode in protest of the sheer amount of information I was shoving into it--but it was so worth it. Most of the curriculum is physiology and mechanics focused, while the intuitive and energy-based classes (which sparked so much awe and joy in this field for me) are at the end of the program. My connection to others, and to the natural beauty around me, grew so much during my time at CRSMT.

Go for it!

If you're looking for a great quality massage course with a very supportive staff, stop looking as you have found it here at CRSMT.
I have been so amazed at the high quality of teaching staff and the interest of all staff in supporting my success. It's been an unbelievable wonderful journey that stretched me and grew me. Love the school and the friendships that developed.

A True Blessing

Although massage therapy was not something I had considered for very long, being here at CRSMT has shown me a new profound love for body work. I was looking to attend school back in the states to start my education but being someone who loves to travel the world, I knew this school would become my new home. The course is vigorous and can challenge you, but if you are someone who strives to succeed and work hard, this is the massage school to change your life for the better. When we first arrived, we were all warned this place would change our lives in atleast one way. I can whole heartedly say CRSMT has changed and impacted my life in numerous ways be it the: teachers, student community, or Costa Rica its self and so much more. If youre looking for change and to truly find yourself, push yourself into adventure to study massage therapy here in the most beautiful place to do so!

Just Do It

If you’re willing to put in the work, don’t let any obstacle stop you from coming! The challenge and price pale in comparison to the worth of finishing the program.

Several times over, my grandfather shared that "it is the things you don't do in life that you will most regret. I'm so thankful to him for lighting my torch with encouraging words to live my best life, put one foot in front of the other, and just go! Not your regular mundane massage education program here. The CRSMT program is purposely set up for students to succeed with their incredible instructors (Jan, Kate, Julie, Cordelia, Vickie, Brant, Shari, Bev, all the TAs and anyone else I didn't name), outstanding office staff (Bill, TESS, Margaret), and grounds team. I encourage each person who reads this to JUST DO IT. Go the distance and you will be happy you did. Disclaimer: The curriculum is not a walk in the rainforest. Read, study, massage, pause... and then read, study, and massage some more. But don't worry...The ocean's sounding roar in the background will bless you. Namaste.
