My name is Patty Smythe and when I am not living the Pura Vida life in Playa Samara, Costa Rica, I live in the woods of Western Massachusetts in the Pioneer Valley. I began my career in massage in 1997 attending the East/West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon where I received my initial 550 hours.
I chose the perfect career for myself because I love learning and the field of massage therapy is almost as infinite as the human mind. Over the past 19 years of my practice, I have continually attended different workshops to broaden and expand my understanding of effective bodywork.
