Full body deep tissue massage – 90-minutes session

A deep tissue massage is a type of massage that aims to invigorate and heal a person’s muscles and connective tissue.

The main benefit of a deep tissue massage is that it can help relieve pain caused by stressed and strained muscles—the massage focus on targeting specific muscles and connective tissue.

Why should you opt for a supplementary medical plan in Ecuador?

Why should you opt for a supplementary medical plan in Ecuador? Benefits and options in Ecuador:

Both private and public health insurance in Ecuador can be easily combined with low-cost supplemental health plans which will cover specific needs such as outpatient medical care, emergency care, and coverage of medical tests. This type of basic coverage will be very useful if you have a health plan with IESS. IESS will provide you with medical assistance when you need it but you may experience long wait times when accessing your benefits, which is why we offer you the option of a supplementary plan.

Recommendation for Alex Flores, dog trainer, Club Canino Cuenca

We adopted a wonderful dog from a great local rescue group named FAAN. Brisa is loving and gentle and fit right in with our old, little dog. She had one problem…she was deathly afraid of going for a walk. My husband and I have rescued and loved many dogs over the years so we’ve had our share of behavioral issues but for some reason nothing that we’ve used before was working with Brisa. We wanted her to be just as happy out walking as she was within our home.
