ABOUT THE LIVING LIFE IN COSTA RICA BLOG

I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
VOLUNTEER TO HELP:
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

RUTH LOPEZ
(2-288-4658-Appointment-Spanish  •  8-857-4656-English  •  MyNaturalSecret@gmail.com )

I've only heard REALLY POSITIVE things about Ruth and that she spends one-on-one time with you and utilizes other techniques like color therapy.  A Holistic approach / healing treatment that includes acupuncture.  Sessions last about 1 hour. When calling for an appointment with her assistant - make SURE it is WITH Ruth and not an other practitioner!!!

INVESTMENT IN YOUR BODY: 38,000/session.
(make sure to tell Ruth [my old neighbor] Vicki with the blog Connected you!!)

She also has brought an AMAZING product from Ecuador - ME SECRETO NATURAL!!
It's a natural product to regulate the digestive system and helps to eliminate fats through the urine and stools and lowers cholesterol (hence results in weight loss for many).  Legally registered natural medicinal product with the Ministerio de Salud in Costa Rica.



WHERE TO FIND:  Bio Salud and Farma Natura (the macrobiotic at WalMart [except Heredia])

Hi! I have a question for you, I hope you are able to answer it. I lived in Costa Rica for 4 years, but moved to Houston, Texas to pursue a career in acupuncture. I still have 3 more years until I will be able to take the board exams and get licensed and everything, but I would love to move back to Costa Rica to start a practice…
I see that you are not originally from Costa Rica, but you practice acupuncture there. Could you tell me a little bit about the process for foreigners to practice? Any tips or advice would be helpful! I know I still have a long way to go, but I would like to plan in advance as much as possible.
Thank you so much!
