Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

February 17, 2011

Michael Arnold, the five-element acupuncturist at Holis Wellness in Manuel Antonio, has to return to England. He will be greatly missed by those of us who were able to experience his incredible healing powers. Michael is trying to get a replacement to come to the spa; we will keep you posted if he is able to. Despite his departure, many great things are going on at Holis. The spa is now offering a Friendship Package for yoga and Pilates classes: With the purchase of a 12-class card, you get a free class for a friend; a 20-class card gets you two free classes for a friend. For more information, call 2777-7093 or visit www.spaholis.com.
