Vickie Torrey, MBA, MHA, LMBT is a licensed massage and bodywork therapist with almost 30 years experience in therapeutic massage and over 26 years experience as a Counselor/Certified Social Worker.

Journey back to yourself, in a five-day Oncology Massage and Caregivers’ Retreat, that’s waiting for you here, in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica. As a bodyworker, you can enhance your skills and expand your knowledge in how and when to compassionately touch persons experiencing cancer and other life-altering health conditions. As a family caregiver you will learn simple integrative touch therapies that you can use with confidence and ease for your loved ones and yourself.

We know and honor that both bodyworkers and family caregivers provide ongoing care to others. This adventure retreat allows you to celebrate who you are; with grounding exercises, rejuvenating self-care tips, transformative quests into the core of your soul, quiet moments of deep solitude, as well as thrilling Costa Rican escapades into the beauty of this tropical wonderland.

Highlights
Be good to yourself. For five days, enchant yourself with the beauty of Playa Samara of the Nicoya peninsula.
In our open air classroom, listen to the sounds of monkeys in the mango trees as you learn cancer pathology, current research and how to unravel and find peace with the emotions of providing care.
Melt into the soothing, soul-enriching power of light compassionate touch as you experience integrative touch therapies through partner exchange.
Feel the joy of the healing power of Color Therapy. Sink your feet into the sand and learn grounding exercises to the rhythm of the Pacific Ocean.
Free yourself of old stories that no longer serve you while experiencing quiet, serene moments during your Walking Meditations on one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica.
Uplift the community as a volunteer by offering Oncology Massage to cancer patients from Samara, Nicoya or others.
