Kitty’s Corner

Halloween is coming quickly, and you may be thinking about the mounds of candy that go hand-in-hand with this holiday.  Perhaps you have a go-to treat that you enjoy.  We do!! It’s important to be aware, though, of the ingredients in the goodies you and/or your children may eat this holiday because those ingredients can affect your body and your skin.

One of the worst culprits is high fructose corn syrup and other artificial sweeteners and colorings (i.e., chemical additives).  According to Dr William Sears, these are neurotoxins.  When we age, the blood-brain barrier, which screens out neurotoxins that harm brain tissue, weakens and allows neurotoxins to leak through.*  What we eat has an effect on our skin, too, and can prematurely age it making it look dry and sallow.

We have facials and body wraps that can help with skin health.  The seaweed nourishes the skin and body with important minerals. Additionally, we have health coaching and specific health education components that can help you eat healthier and live longer.

This month you may want to take advantage of our Mummy Wrap (seaweed body wrap) to feed the skin on your entire body or our Ghoolishly Great Special that includes a skin enhancer for your face.

We wish you all the best and optimal health!

Much love,
Kitty (Owner) & Ali (Manager & Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach)

October Paso Robles Day Spa Body Wrap Special

Mummy Body Wrap Special

Are you ready for your skin to look better or are you fatigued or lack energy?  This is the treatment for you.  In this 60-minute special, your body will be painted by our talented staff with a mixture of potent cool, Halloween green ocean algae and many precious essential oils that work synergistically. You’ll then be gently wrapped in mylar like a beautiful mylar mummy to allow the ingredients to work their magic on your skin leaving it hydrated, purified, and soothed. Since our blood plasma is similar in composition to the ocean, algae doesn’t know the difference between you and the ocean so it crosses blood barriers to remineralize and rebalance the body. This treatment releases toxins that cause the skin to appear ripples or thick, such as upper arms, pouches on upper hips, and bloated or distended waists and stomachs.  Just $99 this month.

Kitty’s Corner

One way to be healthier is to receive healthy touch.  How often do you receive this?  Kathleen Keating, a blogger for Emotional Intelligence states that “we are suffering in our society from […] touch deprivation, skin hunger, and hug inhibition.”** Touch is critical for our physical, mental, and emotional health.  It releases oxytocin, a bonding hormone.  It activates the vagus nerve that’s connected from the brain to the gut, which, in part, helps control your immune system, and it helps to reduce depression.  It’s essential for our ability to not just survive, but to thrive.**

Whether you’re single and just not receiving enough healthy touch because you live alone or if you’re in a relationship where healthy touch isn’t as frequent as you wish or if you want, or need, a trained professional who is expert in the body’s anatomy to pinpoint and massage areas in your body that need worked out, we can help.

We also have memberships that allow Central Coast locals to receive a massage each month at a discounted rate or anyone can try out one of our Monthly Specials this month.  For September, you can choose either our Revitalize Me package or a Massage with Tuning, which is a sound therapy modality.  (See specials below).

I wish you all the best and optimal health!

Health & Wellness Classes

I keep being asked to teach a class specifically on losing weight because I hear from people that even though they are cutting back on the amount they eat, they still don’t lose weight.  There is a reason why!  Want to find out?  You might be surprised but the main problem may be one of your organs.  Can you guess which one?

You will learn how to lose weight and keep it off, as well as receive suggested meal protocols and why some food is better for you than other food when it comes to weight reduction. (These protocols are always important to review with your doctor in case you have any allergies).

The class will be two weeks long:  Tuesday, September 17 and Tuesday, September 24 from 6pm-8pm.  The cost is $250 per person.

Fun Fact

Did you know that cuddling helps couples stay together?  It’s true…bonding and attachment are created when you cuddle more and that attachment helps couples care about, or look out for, each other rather than hurt each other.  If your relationship needs some pepping up, try cuddling.**

Kitty’s Corner

Have you hit that dip in the summer where you might have indulged in too much fun food and drinks at the Mid-State Fair or at this summer‘s barbecues and you’re just not feeling your best?

About this time each year, clients begin to complain about digestive issues (e.g., heartburn, indigestion, & constipation), as well as bad skin health.  It’s likely due to everything that accompanies that fun in the sun—an overindulgence in hotdogs, hamburgers, desserts, alcohol, and chips.

Why does overindulgence create havoc?  Ample research* shows that 70% of our health is in our gut, which is an enormous endocrine organ.  It absorbs essential nutrients and makes a number of hormones.  Thus, when something is out of balance there, it affects much of our body and mind.  When things are working well, it can provide us with health, good immunity, and youthful looking skin.  Its rich supply of nerves has earned its name “gut brain,” and it’s also literally connected to the brain in our heads via the vagus nerve. It’s not surprising then that our brain is most affected by nutrition.  The healthier your gut is, the healthier your brain is and the happier you will be because 90% of serotonin (the “feel good” hormone) is made in the gut.*

Since we have trillions of strains of gut bacteria, however, you’re likely not going to be able to get all you need through food.  Since probiotics are affected by moisture, stomach acid and other factors, we’ve done a lot of research to select the specific one we carry at The Spa.  Always check with your doctor before going on any supplements, especially if you’re on any medication.

There are 8 particular probiotics that are especially powerful for your gut and skin.  We sell a high quality internal probiotic and also carry a specific skin product called LaFlore that specifically keeps the bacteria on your face balanced. If you want to heal your gut, reach out to Ali, our Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach to do a four-week health reset.

I wish you all the best and optimal health!

Much love,
Kitty (Owner) & Ali (Manager & Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach)

Fun Fact

Do you know that real, wholesome food help keep us healthy?  Bees pollenate many of these foods, and yet their colonies are being destroyed by mites.  If you know someone who keeps bees, encourage them to treat bees once a year with either organic mite treatment or specific essential oils to destroy the mites.  You can help, too, by planting more flowers, or flowering bushes, outside your home that aren’t sprayed with pesticides.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!
A BIG THANKS TO OUR VETERANS!

We have a chance every year during the 4th of July to think about our country, our families, our freedom, our communities.  We often spend the 4th celebrating with our immediate families, but it is also a time when we think about our larger family—the communities we’re part of and our entire American family as we contemplate our freedom and who are as a nation.

Ali’s Uncle Roy enlisted in the military during WWII but was rejected due to a hernia.  He earned enough money to pay for surgery, had the surgery, and re-enlisted.  At 19, he was accepted and ended up being part of the military crew that raised the “first” American flag in Iwo Jima—the one that was destroyed in battle.  Shortly after, he was assigned to another part of the island where he was killed with many of his comrades.  The flag wasn’t raised again until later– in that famous flag raising picture at Iwo Jima after we defeated Japan.  Unfortunately, Ali’s Uncle Roy never saw it raised again.

WWII represented a time when Americans came together with their Allies to defend freedom against dictators, the three Axis leaders: Hitler, Hirohito, and Mussolini.

May we all reflect on the times when we’ve come together as families—both our immediate one and our great American family, as communities, as a nation.  We can do so much more together than when we are divided.  And it’s in those moments of feeling connected and having common goals when we have the greatest successes and the greatest achievements in our country.  Credible studies show that we all need each other, and we need the diversity that exists whether it’s political, ethnic, cultural, religious, or sexual orientation. Difference makes us stronger not weaker. Getting along with others is also good for our health.  Discord isn’t.  It increases our blood pressure, cortisol levels, and heart rate.

Why not use July 4th to listen to each other, respect each other, agree to disagree where we can’t find true common ground, and begin to create our circles of inclusion around, and focus on, healthy ways of building together what is important to us all:  our freedom, the safety of our kids & family, and an opportunity to earn a decent living for our time and skills we offer.

We hope you come visit us soon At The Spa Central Coast where all are welcome.

Much love,
Kitty (Owner) & Ali (Manager & Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach)

Thank You Veterans

Thank you for all of your sacrifices, dear Veterans!  Please come enjoy any of our treatments and receive a 10% military discount.  Make sure you mention it to the front desk and show your military ID upon checkout after your treatment at The Spa.

Power Naps

Power Nap*

Feeling tired?  Approximately 75% of Americans have sleep disturbance at least one night during the week.  But naps can help resolve that issue.  Naps enhance the immune system according to a 2015 study by Nature Neuroscience.  There are no negative side effects to naps.  They are highly refreshing and don’t interfere with your night’s sleep.  The study completed revealed that subjects’ performance deteriorated after each of the four daily tests given, but participants who took a 30-minute nap between tests stopped the deterioration in performance.  Those who took a 60-minute nap even reversed it.

But who has the peace and quiet at home to nap?  We have the perfect solution…come enjoy a power nap in one of our 6 beautifully peaceful treatment rooms for only $35 for 30 minutes and $40 for 45 minutes.  If you come 15 minutes before your appointment, and if you desire it, you may sit in our soothing meditation room to enjoy a complimentary 15-minute foot soak in on of our pounded copper bowls with mixed polished shells before your nap.

*This will become a regular offering at The Spa after July.

Sabai Herbal Ball – only $25

  • The herbal ball includes Lemongrass, Tumeric, Prai, Kaffir Lime, Camphor, and Tamarind.  These have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that soothe, heal and draw out toxins.

Mineral Warm Mask – only $23

  • This mask softens fine lines and stimulates the skin’s natural processes of hydration and  vasodilation.

Sound Therapy – only $50 for 30 Min Treatment

  • Frequency-specific tuning forks find static in our electromagnetic biofield (usually created from emotional or physical trauma or sadness).  Tuning take this stuck energy, reharmonizes it, and returns it back to the body in order to restore the body’s vitality.  It may help with depression, anxiety, physical pain, PTSD, stress, addiction recovery, grief, and more.  We are vibration and frequency so it makes sense to heal the body through vibration and frequency.

Kitty’s Corner

A Big Thanks to Fathers!!

With Father’s Day coming up, Ali and I have been talking about how much pressure men must feel to be tough, to not show their feelings, or to present a masculine ideal.

Unfortunately, the way we socialize men with these societal beliefs actually prohibit healthy behaviors, as well as prohibit men from getting the care they need, according to several scientific studies and medical articles, which include Harvard Medical School’s “Masculinity and Men’s Health.”

As a result, men die younger. They have strokes and heart attacks in significant numbers almost 10 years earlier than women; and sadly, four times as many men than women commit suicide.*  And according to “research published by the American Psychological Association, these ‘masculine traits’ have been linked with mental health issues such as depression and substance abuse.” **

Both of us have seen a number of little boys be made to feel ashamed for crying or had their dreams crushed about what they wanted to be because it wasn’t what “men” do. If we love the men and male children, cousins, nephews, friends, and brothers, in our lives, why do we make them feel that they can’t be something other than masculine? Or why can’t being masculine include being creative, gentle, communicative, and kind?  Or better yet, why not allow everyone to be who they really are on the inside? It’s worth discussing if we want the males we love to live longer and if we want to see them happier.

Since we often see more women than men come to The Spa, we have to believe that men might consider going to a spa not masculine.  However, going to The Spa is about taking care of yourself regardless so that you live longer, healthier lives.  Being healthier allows one to feel more energetic, be happier and enjoy more productivity in life.

This month, we’re honoring fathers, and men in general, at The Spa.  If you’re stressed, we have several massage options that reduce stress.  If you’re feeling anxious or wanting to reach a goal but having difficulty, we have private guided visualization sessions to help. If you’d like to get healthier, we have health coaching and sound therapy sessions. Maybe you’d just like to get the hair taken off your back; our body buff is fantastic for that, and it’s pain free and our special this month.

Maybe you know a man who doesn’t want to admit he needs these things and you want to help him. Consider getting him a gift card at The Spa.  Whatever way he gets here, we’ll help him relax and heal.

Much love,

Kitty

Ali’s Health & Wellness

Do you want to feel more joy, or find yourself again, or get out of a rut?  Often times we want to go through a new door in our life, but our hands are full holding the bags of our past that include hurt, trauma, sadness, lack of forgiveness, self loathing, etc.   These bags we hold don’t allow us to grab the handle on the new door before us.

We have to be willing to drop the bags in order to free our hands.  It begins with a decision…a willingness to take a chance and see how to do things differently than we have in the past. If you’re ready to see what it feels like to let go of what no longer serves you then you may be interested in doing some health and wellness coaching with me.  Some of options are:

  • 60 minute private health coaching sessions – $70/session
  • 60 minute private Sound therapy session – $95/session
  • 5-pack of 1/2 hour sessions of private guided meditation for $75
  • Four weeks of 90-minute private sessions of Prime Time Health (nutrition class) for $265 (based on Dr Williams Sears scientifically proven plan)

Please call 805-591-7157 to schedule or send an email to alithespacc@gmail.com to set up an appointment.

June Specials

Father's Day Specials

Father’s Day Specials

How about getting rid of unwanted arm, back, or leg hair without the pain so that you can be ready to celebrate Father’s Day?  Try body buffing rather than waxing.  You’ve likely seen a car being buffed.  It’s a similar concept but on a smaller scale.  Our professional body buffing machine is hand held which allows our skilled staff to roll over areas of hair, gently buffing your hair away while exfoliating your skin and leaving it nice and smooth.    After buffing, we follow it up with a shea butter cream that is massaged into the treated areas.  You’ll never go back to the outdated waxing method after you experience body buffing.  Call today to book your treatment for $75. 

Add a gentleman’s facial for 10% off.  Regularly $118.

If you book online, we will apply your discount upon checkout at the spa.

Pride Month Specials

Gay Couple’s Special

June is Pride month and commemorates the Stonewall riots of 1969 where police raided Stonewall Inn, a bar that allowed gay individuals to patronize.  At the Spa Central Coast, we pride ourselves on being a place where all are welcome in the hopes that one day, we may all see each other as individuals who deserve kindness and respect, who look at our similarities rather than our differences.

We invite any gay couple to enjoy a relaxing 60-minute, 75- minute, or 90-minute couple’s massage in our beautiful couple’s room. You’ll enjoy a foot soak in our magical meditation room before your individual therapists lead you together into our couple’s treatment room where you will receive your soothing individual massages. ALL couples, straight or gay, will receive 20% off on any couple’s massage for the month of June in recognition of Pride Month.

If you book online, we will apply your discount upon checkout at the spa.

Did you know that insulin is the master hormone?  It’s like the conductor of an orchestra.  If it’s off..that is if you have high or low blood sugar levels throughout the day, it can interfere with the functioning of every other hormone in your body.

Kitty’s Corner

It’s the Month of Mom!!

Ali and I have been talking about our moms and laughing about the silly times with them and the most valuable lessons they’ve taught us.

I learned from my mom how to work hard and to have fun.  Ali’s mom taught her how to laugh at herself and how to stay healthy.  The influence of my mom no doubt helped me to become a business owner and Ali’s mom inspired her to ultimately dive into her passion of helping people become healthier.

What valuable lesson has your birth mom or someone you’ve adopted as “your mom” taught you?

Now it’s your turn to give back to her…teach her the valuable lesson of vital self care by taking time to relax while getting your facials at The Spa.  Choose from a 60-minute Love You, Mom! Facial together for only $250 for both of you or a 30-minute Love You, Mom! Facial for only $170 for both of you.  If you don’t wish to have a facial on the same day with your mom, pamper her with a Love You, Mom! Gift Card and let her choose what treatment she’d like for Mother’s Day.

Much love,
Kitty

Fun Fact

Did you know that overall healthy adults who received hugs were found less likely to come down with a common cold according to a study from Carnegie Mellon University?* Hugs also reduce depression, promote trust from the surge of oxytocin, lower stress, increase self-esteem, and smooth out a disagreement. Since hugging has measurable neurological-biological benefits and costs nothing, start doling out more hugs!** It’s beneficial to you and to the receiver. If you want to change the world, and most of all your own, it all starts with you.

Ali’s Health Corner:  topics that affect our health & wellness

I’m a big believer that it’s okay to age; we’re all going to do it!  So I’d encourage you to stop resisting and embrace this natural part of life.  I think the key to it is to not worry about aging but to be concerned instead about aging well.  It can be confusing, though, not knowing the best route to take.

Hopefully, I can help you take some guess work out of the equation by sharing that health is about balancing the body, the mind, and the spirit.  If you’re not eating real, healthy foods, your body will be out of balance.  If you don’t have a method that calms you, your mind will be out of balance.  If you don’t have a practice that uplifts your soul, your spirit will be out of balance. Imbalances are what stop us from aging well because they lead to diseases, illness, and sadness.  Imbalance doesn’t allow for flow or harmony in the body, mind or spirit, and when there’s not flow or harmony, blockage or disease is likely to occur.

At The Spa, we offer many services to help keep yourself in balance, and starting April 1, 2019, we’ll be offering annual memberships in meditation to help you balance your mind. You can select from unlimited group meditation where you can attend up to 9 times a week if you’d like or you can select a private, guided meditation membership and book your private session when it’s most convenient for you.

Many credible, medical studies show that meditation slows aging in the brain, but it wasn’t until studies from UCLA’s School of Medicine revealed in 2015 that “On average, the brains of long-term meditators were 7.5 years younger at age 50 than the brains of non-meditators…”**.  Therefore, meditation is a great way to age well.

Memberships are wonderful because they encourage us to do the activity.  Doing something alone is always harder to maintain than doing it in a group or booking an appointment with someone who will hold you accountable for showing up.

If you’re interested in a membership in meditation, please click the button below to show your interest. I’ll call you to answer any questions before you commit.

If you’re just not feeling like yourself right now and wish to focus specifically on your body, I’ll also be teaching another 4-week, 90-minute health class based on Dr William Sears’s scientifically proven plan for feeling young and living longer.  Dr Sears is a renown physician, nutrition expert, and author of 45 books.   You will receive 4 workbooks and the book Prime Time Health. The workbooks cover the following topics: How Your Body Makes Its Own Medicine, Why to Make Health Your Hobby, How to Move Waste from Your Waist, and How to Live Without Pain and Inflammation.  Only $265 for all four 90-minute classes. Price includes the materials.  Space is limited; so if you’re interested, please click below to reserve your spot. Classes are every Tuesday beginning April 23 until Tuesday, May 14 from 6:00pm-7:30pm.

If you own or manage a business, I can also conduct this class at your business location if you have employees who’d like to get healthier.

Namaste (which means the light in me honors the light in you),

Kitty’s Corner: Thoughts, Opinions, & Musings of Kitty’s

It’s Spring and Time to Exfoliate 

Something you can do externally to age well and have younger looking skin is to exfoliate weekly. Exfoliation removes skin cells that are dead or dulling.  As we age, our body’s rate of shedding dead and dulling skin cells slows down.  We can help it by using gentle exfoliators, like The Spa Central Coast “Mermaid Body Polish,” which uses organic seaweed (algae) and pumice to exfoliate the entire body.  For the face, I use our “I Am Beaming Pearl,” which is also organic seaweed with fine pumice, bamboo and micro particles of pearl to lighten and brighten the skin.  Both products smell amazing!

If you’d like to know what it feels like to have a full body exfoliation, you can book an appointment for a 75-minute salt exfoliation and massage with one of our skilled therapists.

With Love,
Kitty

News at The Spa

  • Geary Whiting, inductee in the Massage Hall of Fame (2005), will be our visiting specialty therapist for a few months this year.  He’s making a special visit to The Spa Central Coast on March 12, March 26, April 2, April 16, April 23, May 7, May 21, and May 28 to perform Shiatsu Massage.  For those of you not familiar with Shiatsu, it is a form of Japanese bodywork and based on the ideas of traditional Chinese Medicine.  Japanese Ministry of Health describes it as applying pressure to the body to correct internal malfunctions, promote and maintain health, and treat specific diseases.  The techniques used include stretching, holding, and most commonly, leading body weight into various points along key channels in the body.  If you’ve never had a Shiatsu massage by Geary, you’re in for a real treat.  He’s an expert!  Payments need to be made directly to Geary at the time of treatment.  Shiatsu massages are $155.

Ali’s Health Corner:  Topics that affect our Health & Wellness

It does seem like March has started with a Madness that has nothing to do with college basketball.  With so much happening in the world and with political tensions running high, the external irritation we feel can bleed into our own relationships if we let it.  Discord in our relationships can lead to all sorts of health issues such as high blood pressure, rapid heart rate, and stress.  When we’re most upset, we might only see or believe that the other person we’re upset with is at fault.  And we may just want to get our point across to that person or just want the other person to do what we say.  But this doesn’t develop or maintain harmonious relationships.

Active listening is one thing you can improve within yourself that will help to create peace in your life and relationships.  One of the things all of us crave is to be heard and understood.

How can you improve your listening skills to bring more harmony and health in your life?

A good beginning is to contemplate the difference between hearing someone and listening to someone.  One of our senses is hearing.  When sound reaches our ears, it sends signals that involve the processing of sound in the brain.  Hearing is passive.  You may hear a horn honk or a dog bark, and you really didn’t have to do much of anything to hear it if you were in the vicinity.

Listening, however, is an action we choose to take.  It goes beyond simply hearing words.  When we listen, we give our full attention to what is actually being said and the emotion behind it and we acknowledge those things.  Jiddu Krishnamurti has so beautifully described this:

“When you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively,
then you are listening not only to the words,
but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed,
to the whole of it, not part of it.”

To start your active listening journey…the next time someone is talking tell yourself, “I’m going to listen to understand them first rather than to be understood.”  The next step is to “reflect” back to the person what they say.  Before you give your opinion or interrupt them, try understanding them first by saying, “ I hear what you’re saying.  You think that…” and then restate what they’ve said in your own words.  You’ll be surprised at the difference it makes in your conversations when people see that you’ve heard them.  It increases appreciation and trust.  If you continue to practice this over time, you’ll be amazed how much your child, your spouse, your partner, or your friend will share with you that you never knew.

Kitty’s Corner: “Selecting Makeup Right for Your Skin”

Many foundations and concealers can be too drying or too oily.  I know….I’ve used many in my life.  That’s why I’m excited to offer my clients SkinCeuticals DermaBlend.  SkinCeuticals are experts at skin.  I’ve carried their line at The Spa for a long time, especially to tackle difficult dermal problems.  The makeup is my pick of the month because its application is ultra easy—done in less than one minute, and it blends beautifully into the skin without that oily look or drying sensation.  After I put on the concealer and foundation, I apply their Glow Creator to highlight my cheekbones.  I really am loving this product and think you will, too!!  Come try it!  It’s 25% off.

Much Love,

Ali’s Health Corner:  Topics that affect our Health & Wellness

I don’t know if your January was as weird and zany as mine was, but I’m glad it’s over and that we’re coming into the month of the heart and love—not because of the commercialization of Valentine’s Day (I don’t like that part) but because the opportunity February gives us, if we allow ourselves, to reflect where our heart is, what it’s feeling, and the role we let it play in our lives.

I’ve reflected on mine and decided to take our Meditation course last month that Carmen Rose taught because I’ve gotten away from taking time to meditate, and I miss the deep peace and joy it used to fill me with.  Part of Carmen’s class teaches us to be mindful by taking pauses in our day to observe and enjoy without judgment.  I took time to pause this week and just held Mango, our little Chihuahua, in my arms and mindfully looked at the hair growing on the sides of her nose, her little short eyelashes, her perfect tiny nostrils; I was distraction free, and suddenly in my mindfulness, I was filled with inexplicable joy.  I was surprised at the happiness I felt just holding her, looking at her without interruption, and observing without judgment.  I know it may sound funny, but all of the hard parts of my day faded, and I felt my heart literally soften.

It reminded me that it’s easy to get lost in the frenzy of life and forget to listen or delve into our hearts, to remember that our heart is where joy stems, the place where we are vulnerable, the place where we can be moved, the place where we tap into our souls.  But as a result of life’s frenetic pace, it’s easy to begin to feel less moved, more hardened and less in touch with our authentic selves.  However, it’s not healthy and closing off our hearts or being out of touch with our heart is evidently not how we’re wired either.

In 2014, HeartMath Institute did a credible study shown in a video called “Power of the Heart” where participants were connected with instruments measuring various biological functions to determine if the heart processed events accurately before the mind processed them.  They discovered that the heart knew the event seconds before the mind.  In fact, it even knew what the event was before their eyes saw it and the mind processed the image.  How can we use this fact about ourselves on a practical level?  We can try to be more open hearted.  We can delve more into our heart to find the answers for our individuals lives.  And we can trust what our heart tells us if we’re quiet and really listening.

If you want to open your heart more, you can try our regular guided meditation class starting Thursdays in our Meditation Room from 9:00am-9:45am beginning February 7.  Or you can try one of our facial or massage specials and add on our special guided heart meditation in the treatment room where our therapists will guide you through a meditation that is well known to open the heart, increase self-love, and love for others.  Whatever you decide, we send you love and health this month.

Kitty’s Corner: “Fear Is A Liar”

My January detox went well overall. I hope all of you who joined me enjoyed it or survived—at least. I realized this year it was easier than other years. I did the kidney and liver cleanse several times—which I loved. Got through an advantage anatomy class. And I’m super excited that February is here!

I changed my Facebook photo this month to “Fear Is A Liar.” How many times have we delayed things we want to do or stopped ourselves from reaching out to someone out of fear? We especially fear falling in love sometimes for fear we’ll be hurt. Valentine’s Day is coming up. Decide this month to overcome your fear. Decide to love more—which may mean making an effort to love yourself more. If you’re single, do something for yourself. We’ll pamper you at The Spa if you want to try our Single Women or Single Men’s Special. If you’re with someone, do something really special for each other like have a Couple’s Massage.

Much Love,

Ali’s Health Corner:  Topics that affect our Health & Wellness

Happy New Year!!

I hope that as you contemplate this new year you’ll think about how to live in the present more often. Living in the present encourages us to be aware, go deeper, and seek to know ourselves first rather than to judge others.  Why is this important?  Because it ultimately leads to inner peace.  Tama Kieves, one of my favorite authors, says that we are like the ocean.  On the surface, the ocean can be turbulent, but if we dive deep, that is where we find silence, peace, and everything looks more beautiful.

Focusing too frequently on the past and what you used to be or what you used to have may lead to feelings of depression, while focusing too much on the future and what you don’t yet have may create feelings of anxiety. If we learn to focus on the present and be grateful for where we are and what we have, it can lead to feelings of joy, peace, and a greater respect for others.

We’d like to help you focus more on “present living” this year. As part of the classes that will be taught at The Spa, we’re making a special concentration on meditation—which helps the brain focus on how to be present.

Many credible, medical studies show that meditation slows aging in the brain, but it wasn’t until studies from UCLA’s School of Medicine revealed in 2015 that “On average, the brains of long-term meditators were 7.5 years younger at age 50 than the brains of non-meditators, and an additional 1 month and 22 days younger for every year after 50.”

Do you want a younger brain and to dive deeper into your spirit? Come join us for our 4-week meditation course starting Monday nights beginning January 21st from 6:00pm-7:30pm. It’s only $130 for all four classes. Classes will be taught by Carmen Rose, who is certified in meditation and yoga. This series is especially good for those who want to learn how to meditate. You will learn different meditation styles, meditation myths, and the importance of formal and informal practice.

For those who are already experienced meditators or who just want to implement it more into their lives, we will also be offering a weekly Thursday morning meditation class starting February 7th from 9:00am-9:45am. If you sign up for the four-week Meditation course above, the February weekly meditation classes will only be $5.00 per class. (Please see our additional courses below.). There are only 8 spots available for these courses so please sign up quickly if you’d like to attend.

We hope you join us for both the four-week course and the weekly meditation!

Kitty’s Corner: Detox Challenge and Ritual

Join me for The Spa January Detox Challenge & Ritual!

January has always been my month to detox. It’s a perfect month to kick off the year by being as clean as you can. For me, that means cutting out all alcohol, refined sugar, and bread. This year, I will also be adding movement every day, too. My choice of movement will be yoga this year. I’ve been doing this detox ritual for four years now, and each year, it has helped me throughout the year to be more mindful of what I put in my body.

My ritual includes replacing my alcohol with fresh made juice, a warm evening tea, or flavored water with a lime or lemon. Now I will replace refined sugars with real fruits, like an apple, and replace bread with more salad or another healthy choice.

I also choose to do my workouts towards the evening, which for me takes away that temptation of pouring a glass of wine after work. Many of my friends join me in my January detox, which makes it easier, more fun, and holds me accountable.

I hope you’ll join me!  This year, I’m going to make some non-alcohol drinks that are refreshing and heathy rather than just do juicing for 30 days. Click here to see one I’m planning to do:

Celery Shrub Recipe (link will open in a new browser tab)

I have chosen the special this month to be the Far infared sauna treatment to help give us all a kick start in eliminating stored toxins including those nasty pesticides, and the seaweed body wraps for the same reason, but also seaweed feeds the body nutrients. (See specials below.). I would also encourage you to attend Ali’s (our Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach) Detox class on Tuesday, January 8 from 6:00pm-7:00pm for some additional jump starts in getting your body cleaned out and functioning at its best.

Cheers to a healthy new you, and I hope to see you at the Spa.

Far Red Infrared Special

Toxicity in your body can appear in different ways. Some include weight gain, poor skin tone, headaches/migraines, aching joints, sleep issues, low energy, brain fog, and digestive issues. If you think that your body may be in need of a detox, this is the perfect month to come try our Far Infrared Sauna. With this special, you’ll receive four, deliciously soothing ½ hr sessions for only $75 (regularly $35/session).

Seaweed Body Wrap Special

Algae, rich in minerals, is one of nature’s most potent nutrients in the world. In this 60-minuate special, your body will be painted by our talented staff with a mixture of potent ocean algae and many precious essential oils that work synergistically. You’ll then be gently wrapped in mylar like a beautiful cocoon to allow the ingredients to work their magic on your skin. Since our blood plasma is similar in composition to the ocean, algae doesn’t know the difference between you and the ocean so it crosses blood barriers to remineralize and rebalance the body. This treatment releases toxins that cause the skin to appear ripples or thick, such as upper arms, pouches on upper hips, and bloated or distended waists and stomachs. * This wonderfully, gentle detoxing and nutrient-rich treatment is only $89 this month.

*Please let us know if you are allergic to iodine or if you’re pregnant.
