Pura Vida Wellness Resort at Costa Rica Sims

As the Costa Rica Sims Estate Blogger I get to do a lot of fun things, events and fashion shows to name a few  but recently I did something I had never done in Second Life and I will admit it was one of the most pleasurable things I have ever done in SL! I spent an evening at a spa! Not just any spa but a well thought out, extremely enjoyable spa opened by Costa Rica Sims resident Tosha Bergan. I had a wonderful chat with her and I am going to let her tell you about this amazing place.

What is the name of your spa and is there a reason you chose that name?

Pura Vida Wellness Resort is the name of the spa. Pura Vida (POO-rah VEE-dah), used by Costa Ricans since 1956, literally translated means “Pure Life.” Contextually, it means “Full of Life” “Purified life”, “This is living!”, “Going great!” It is used as a greeting, a farewell, and to express satisfaction. The phrase has become widely known in the USA and Europe. Some foreigners view the phrase as an expression of a leisurely lifestyle, of disregard for time and wanton friendliness. However, Costa Ricans use the phrase to express a philosophy of strong community, perseverance, good spirits, enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune, whether small or large.

What made you choose Costa Rica Sims as the place to open your spa?

I really don’t have an answer for that But I have been a resident of CRS for more than year. I do love the feel of having a large community who are supportive and always dedicated to watch a fellow resident succeed. However, I realize a whole year of being a resident that I always caught up with parties and fashion. That I forgot the main reason i join SL is to explore the other possibilities like education and using RL concepts that i can apply here in CRS. I want the residents to have other options for relaxation and learning new things. It is hard to be in a business which is not fashion based, however being in an estate that can provide the basic of support is always a positive thing. well could say CR is a place of tranquility and old world charm that heightens the inner tranquility within

What type of environment are you trying to create in the spa?

We aim to provide a relaxing and immersive environment where you can allow your mind and body to drift into a more relaxed state, aiding your body’s natural recovery process.

What are your goals for the spa and your clients?

The Pura Vida believes in therapies designed to cultivate health and well being from within, to heal and relax the mind, body and soul. The purest and time-tested techniques are used to provide a pleasurable and truly therapeutic experience.

In what ways can Second Life be therapeutic for people in RL?

I love this question… SL was invented for people who couldn’t go out whether illness or sickness, ‘they created another life if they had chance. I think sl not only adds to the social connection, but it allows people to live a life they couldn’t in rl, and gives them hopes on dreams that they would not be able to fulfill for whatever reason  and that relieves stress and gives them some sort of enjoyment and peace with themselves. Some people have a hard time accepting who they really are until they play this so call game. Surprisingly, self esteem and confidence can be improved during their course on sl.

What services do you offer through the spa?

We have a variety of services at the wellness resort more than you can imagine. We offer the following amenities: 1) voice and text massages, 2) manicures and pedicures, 3) meditation and reiki classes, 4) image consultation that is offered by the former Miss CRS 2010 Nisa Constantine and also by former Fashion Institute Instructor Camille Bellecoeur, Sparty! (a combination of spa services and theme party), glamour shots for individuals and couples, 4) Wellness Lectures Monthly on different topics, 5) Wellness Library with RL resources, 6) RL/SL counseling services and life coaching, 7) A gift shop with makeup make Avion Cosemtics, nails by Purple Moon, Chop Zuey Vendor, GIft Baskets, sunglasses, and 8) soon will have facials services.

What would you consider the spa’s “signature” service?

One of the main signatures of the spa is the Bio-Acoustic Massage Therapy and it will allow you to relax and pamper your mind.

You should do yourself a favor and pay a visit to the Spa yourself and if you are still unsure I am going to share with you some of Pura Vida’s recent customer reviews before I tell you about my own experience at this amazing place:

“I surprised my Valentine with a treat of a couples massage at Pura Vida and it was a wonderful experience. The shop accommodated us on our time preference, which was much appreciated. Our Spa attendant met us with her warm and soothing voice… By the end of our massage we were ready to fall asleep.. It was so relaxing. I highly recommend this for anyone who needs to unwind and relax. It is a worthwhile experience. “

Customer:” you did a wonderful job with the spa, everything is so realistic”

Customer: “wish I could jump through the screen for real lol”

Customer: “it show a lot of attention to detail and was carefully thought out, it’s amazing.”

Customer:  “yes the place is beautiful and the services are great.”

Customer: “very classy and elegant”

Customer: “… I really like the spa and it did relax me, so I definitely will make time for that : )”

As for my own experience, I will tell you it was a real treat. I was given a lovely soft and fluffy robe to wear and keep and looked about the gift shop as I waited briefly to be taken up to the spa area, after a relaxing soak and shower I was escorted for my massage. During a private voice call, where I did not need to talk, as my job was to completely relax, I was given an auditory massage through guided imagery that had me relaxing from head to toe. I admit I nearly fell asleep it was so soothing.  If you have never treated yourself to something as wonderful as this, you must go see Tosha and her wonderful staff. It is most definitely worth your time!
