A newly discovered massage therapist in town, Chantale Boisvert, is offering discounted specials for massages. Hailing from Quebec, Canada, Chantale speaks English, Spanish and French, and has been a practicing masseuse for eight years, specializing in Eastern, Swedish, shiatsu and Californian massage, lymphatic drainage, Reiki (master level for 12 years) and reflexology.

If you are interested in checking out Chantale’s techniques, contact her at 2654-4154 or chanbo@live.ca. She has her own table, oils, bedding and music to accompany her treatments.

The nonprofit CEPIA has been working toward rebuilding the nutrition center in Cartagena that burned down some time ago. They are looking for a lawyer to write an escritura (deed) as well as an architect or engineer to help with the structural plans and design for the new building. They are also in need of concrete blocks and a roof. For information, contact Sandrine Tcherniack, CEPIA director, at 2653-8533 or 8881-2134, or go to www.cepiacostarica.org.
