Geomar Vera

Licensed Massage Therapist

MA 87662

Geomar Vera was born and raised in Puerto Rico. There he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Education for children in the year 2013. After years of effort and preparation, Geomar sadly began to suffer from severe panic attacks which took him to a very dark place of questioning many things in his life, including whether he was on the right path. Following this, Geomar took the time to self-heal and soon experienced an awakening of consciousness that led him to redefine his life and take actions that aligned with who he really wanted to be. Finally, at the beginning of 2016 he courageously moved to Tampa, Florida to later attend the therapeutic massage program at Cortiva Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida. Geomar found his life’s purpose in massage therapy and he aims to use massage to improve the wellbeing of others. He is certified and highly trained in neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release and Swedish massage. He has also been in the same way in: prenatal care, sports massage, muscle energy technique, hot stones, among others. He believes in the power of holistic health (body, soul and mind) and his caring personality, charisma and energy only elevate his skill set. Geomar is also convinced that we all need and we lack, to a certain extent, that therapeutic touch. “We need to be touched!”, he says. ”When we are touched with the right intention we are already healing.” Some of his future aspirations are: specialize and obtain certifications in reiki, balancing chakras, emotional release, and alternative touch.

Claudia Acosta

Licensed Massage Therapist

This love blossomed after having her children, especially her youngest who was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome as a boy of seven. As a baby the only way to calm him down was with the power of touch. Massaging his back and forearms would soothe him to sleep. Once her son graduated high school she decided to go back to school and finally make a lifetime dream come true. After several struggles, Claudia graduated from CORTIVA Massage Institute, of St. Petersburg, Florida and was able to begin her life’s work of healing others. She is certified and highly trained in neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, Swedish massage, prenatal care, sports massage, hot stones, trigger-point therapy, MET (Muscle Energy Techniques), and PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation). One of her dreams is be able to work with Autistic families and teach the parents the power of touch to help their children relax more. Since the healing touch has made a difference in her son’s life, she wants to pay it forward to her community by doing the same. Claudia hopes to continue her education with a concentration in Reflexology and Alternative Medicine.
