The School that Teaches More than Massage

CRSMT is far above other schools in the area of professionalism and expertise. Their program not only equips you but grows your confidence to be the best practitioner you can be. I highly enjoyed my time spent in Costa Rica and am so happy I chose to study abroad for my massage certification. It was really beneficial to get away and focus solely on my studies there. And with the intensive nature of the program, you can be done sooner and ready to start a new career in no time. And the town of Samara is darling. It has a laid-back friendly culture and I felt very safe. This school is a GREAT option when considering where to study!

The Best Decision I Have Made

CRSMT was one of the most amazing, life changing experiences I have had. I was taught by incredible and experienced instructors form around the US, in one of the most beautiful places imaginable. The wonderful education I received at CRSMT prepared me to begin practicing massage right away. One year after I began school at CRSMT I was able to open my own private practice and begin a teaching assistant position for the Sports Massage class at the local massage school. I would recommend CRSMT for anyone who is looking to change their life by becoming a massage therapist, and is looking for a bit of an adventure along the way!

Inspiring and lasting experience

I'm eternally grateful for my massage education in the jungle. I've made life long friends, have built up a business for myself as an independent contractor massage therapist in the states, and absolutely love my career. I attended CRSMT in 2011 and couldn't recommend it more. This is certainly one of those once in a life time experiences you have to make the leap for.

Worth Every Penny

The CRSMT is an amazing program! Not only do you learn how to be an experienced and skilled massage therapist, you also learn to be a happier, healthier you. It is also a 12 month program accelerated down into 4, so you get through your education in 1/3 the time. You also get to learn in an outdoor classroom! No florescent lights, not to mention the birds, squirrels, and monkeys in view during classes. It was one of the best choices I have ever made. It is worth every penny. I have been home from CRSMT for under 5 months and have established a great clientele which praises my "Unique technique."

Academics:
Amazing instructors from around the United States, a curriculum that is well rounded and balanced. Not only do you learn to be an experienced and skilled massage therapist, you learn to be a healthier and happier human being.

Living Situation:
It is definitely not like living in the US. I am not a picky person so it wasn't too bad. My only real complaint was the beds and bedding. They were not very comfortable and it was very hard to get used to.

Cultural Immersion:
The school itself does not make an effort to immerse you in the local culture, but you have plenty of time to make it happen on your own. You are right in the middle of a town and there is always something to do. You can immerse yourself as much or as little as you want.
