We had two 'therapeutic' massages at Balance. My boyfriend with Amos who runs the place and me with his mother. I think this was the best massage I ever had! She had a great way of getting into problem muscles and some chiropractic moves really helped me feel more free and spacious in my spine. My boyfriend also really felt... More

Please do yourself a present and get a massage there! He is best massage therapist I had in over 10 years. I have reflexology massage and Chinese cupping. Feels like brand new body today.

Three couples went into Balance and all six of us had a great massage. The Chinese cupping treatment as part of the massage was good, but it would be strange for first timers. They did some very nice deep massage work and then Amos gave some good stretches after the massage. Nice hours from mid afternoon until the evening after... More

Dr. Amos is uniquely qualified in chiropracty, Chinese medicine and therapeutic massage and he has great natural ability. It was worth the trip to Nicaragua to have this hour long massage.

I have some inflamation in my shoulder and went to this place to see if they could help me. When I met Amos, I immediately liked him. Everything he lacks in speaking English he makes up with a wonderful energy and friendly smile. He has treated me tree times already and I feel much better. Amos has done 6 years... More

I went in with a teenager and a migraine. My Spanish is atrocious but as soon as I got the message across I was in excellent hands. They kept my daughter busy with a facial while I got a therapeutic massage with cupping. They were kind and professional and extremely talented. The price was reasonable and while the spa is...

Balance Spa is simply the best spot I have come across for highly experienced massage therapy work, not only in Granada, but in just about every place I've visited or called home. Amos is extremely knowledgeable and I was very impressed from the moment I stepped into the spa. Before starting he first asked me questions about my experience with... More

Amos really takes his job seriously as this might have been one of the best massages I've had. Being an athlete he targeted all the right spots, not to mention for $35 and 90minutes you'll receive a deep tissue/fusion massage,cupping, and acupuncture.

Amos gave me an excellent fusion massage that combined full body massage with cupping, a little chiropractic shoulder cracking and reflexology. my feet really needed the reflexology after all the tourist walking. I thought he really had "the touch" and it was a lovely decorated, relaxing setting. The restaurant below is also good - had potstickers and chicken caesar salad,... More

Had a wonderful massage/treatment here! Due to old injuries, I've had plenty of treatments in my life (with massage therapists and body work healers from all sorts of backgrounds) and can honestly say Amos has a genuine healing touch; he's clearly trained in a variety of techniques & combined them to suit my needs - the session included deep tissue...
