Blue Spirit lives within a zone of longevity

The Spa and Longevity Center at Blue Spirit offers our guests the opportunity to learn and experience the multi-faceted aspects of self-care that encourage a long, healthy and vibrant life. We welcome you to experience a new way of life in the Costa Rica Blue Zone.

Blue Zone is a concept used to identify a geographic area of the world where more people live to be centenarians (past 100 years) than elsewhere. One of the world’s longevity hotspots is the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica – where Blue Spirit is located. Scientists and demographers have classified these longevity hotspots as having common healthy traits and life practices that result in higher-than-normal longevity.

An area of longevity in the Americas

In 2005 Costa Rican demographer Dr. Luis Rosero-Bixby revealed that Costa Ricans who survive to the age of 60 “have the longest life expectancy of anyone in the world”. National Geographic funded an expedition, which confirmed Rosero-Bixby’s findings and discovered further that in the specific region of Nicoya, in the northwestern part of Costa Rica, residents were longer-lived even than other Costa Ricans, making it the zone of longevity in the Americas. Blue Spirit’s founder, Stephan Rechtschaffen MD, is teaching seminars on longevity and envisioning Blue Spirit to become in the next years one of the foremost places to learn more about longevity practices and to receive health treatments to to promote your longevity and wellbeing.
