Bringing Acupuncture to Sayulita


In 2006, Michael Abramson, owner of Sayulita Acupuncture and Massage, stumbled across Sayulita. In the area for a wedding, he had heard that Sayulita was known for its surfing, and made the hour drive from Puerto Vallarta to check it out. Not only did he find waves, he also discovered that the town was home to several different types of healing modalities. “There was yoga, massage, and rolfing, and I thought, ‘Where is the local acupuncturist?’ There was none, and all of a sudden, the ultimate dream became an inspiring vision for me,” Michael confided.

Working Out with Sweat Play Live

There’s something to be said about a good workout. I’ve always loved a workout that gets my heart pumping, my body sweating, and leaves no doubt that I’ve pushed myself.

What Do You Do to
Relax in Sayulita?

Play legos.
Sean Joyce

Hop in my friend's car (usually with the dogs) and visit a quiet isolated nearby beach. The walk through the jungle is always impressive, no matter which beach has been decided. If it's a full day, a book and picnic are always in order. Not only do I love it, but the dogs do too.
Raul Gonzalez

Surf and drink some beers.
