Sandro’s passion for massage therapy stems from his desire to help others come to healing and rehabilitation. Sandro’s degrees come from the Lafayette School and the Atsukai School, both in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and he honed his Japanese and Chinese techniques in Rio de Janeiro.

In his 20 years of experience, Sandro has travelled extensively, working in many countries such as Brazil, Finland, Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Panama, and currently for Blue Osa in Costa Rica. Sandro fell in love with the Osa Peninsula and its people when on vacation several years ago. The main draws for him are the Costa Rican culture, the tropical climate, and the direct connection with nature that is part of everyday life here.

His favorite things to do when he isn’t busy guiding others to tranquility with his magical hands include exploring the jungle, surfing, playing music and running on the beach. When asked what Sandro has planned for the future, he responded, “In this moment, I love my life and the work I do. My plan is to stay put!” Now that’s Pura Vida!
