Happy Valentine's Day from The Spa Central Coast!

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

Happy Valentine’s Day – No Prescription Required!

So as soon as we put out a newsletter saying we need a prescription to book a massage then something changes and now we don’t. It’s just sort of what’s expected right?

What a year!! So we have learned even more that we can deal with change and I think we have also learned even more how important it is to have self care, touch, time to ourselves, balance.

We are now open for facials — some of you haven’t had one for a year! It’s time to make your appointment! We are operating the same…safely. We do ask that if you have been around anyone who isn’t feeling well you postpone your appointment but if you are healthy then we need to get your skin back in shape.

This month our special is microdermabrasion and it’s 20% off! Our medical grade machines have the diamond tip wands. The diamonds exfoliate dead skin cells which are vacuumed at the same time. This procedure is by far one one of my favorites and you will see immediate results in the skin. After a year of no facials it’s the one I recommend for men, women and teenagers alike!

February is by far one of my favorite months as we get to celebrate love by taking the time to spend it with someone special. If you are single and learning that we need to really care for ourselves so that we can properly give to another, then this is a month to give yourself more self love too.

So, for couples we have our Couples Massage. Please note, we will not be open on Sunday the 14th so appointments do need to be scheduled early! Buying a gift card and making a special date night is always a thoughtful gift. To make it easy for you just click this link to purchase your gift card for that someone special.

We have been busy and have added some new products to our line… Our signature oil is always a favorite so we have added it to our Hand Sanitizer. This hand sanitizer has aloe, seaweed, arnica, vitamin E, basil, melissa, lavender, grapefruit and our Hydrating Body Lotion which also has vitamins A and D!

Blessings,
Kitty

Use All The Broccoli Stir Fry

February Recipe of the Month

Use All The Broccoli Stir Fry

Every week I’ve been posting a ‘foodie’ post on my social media channels. Here’s a great recipe “Use All The Broccoli Stir Fry.” This recipe pairs well with salmon.

Pro Tip: Double the glaze and use it on the salmon as well as the broccoli!

Serves 4 (approximately 2c of stir fry per person).

  • 2.5 lbs large broccoli heads with stems at least 1” thick (4-5 heads)
  • 1 Medium red onion
  • ½ cup water, divided
  • 2 Tbsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
  • 2 Tbsp reduced sodium tamari
  • 1 Tbsp chile-garlic sauce
  • 4 tsp toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 2 tsp  Arrowroot (was cornstarch)
  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil, divided
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 small red chiles, sliced (seeded if desired)
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbsp chopped roasted unsalted peanuts

Remove florets from broccoli stems.  Cut the florets into 1 inch pieces and set aside.  Trim the stem ends.  Using a vegetable spiralizer with the thin noodle blade, spiralize as much of each stem as possible.  Chop any remaining stem into ½ inch pieces.   Switch to the thick noodle blade and spiralize the onion.

Whisk ¼ cup water, rice wine (or sherry), tamari, chilli garlic sauce, 2 tsp sesame oil, arrowroot and brown sugar in a small bowl.  Set by the stove.

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large flat bottom carbon steel wok over medium high heat.  Add the broccoli noodles, stem pieces and onion;  cook, stirring until tender, about 5 minutes.  Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and toss with the remaining 2 tsp sesame oil and salt.

Add the remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil, chilies and ginger to the pan.  Cook, stirring constantly, for 15 seconds.  Add the reserved florets and cook, stirring, until starting to brown, about 1 minute.  Add the remaining 1/4 cup water, cover and cook until the florets are tender, about 3 minutes more.  Uncover and add the reserved sauce.   Cook, stirring, until the sauce is thick, about 1 minute.

Arrange the noodle mixture on a platter with the florets on top.  Serve sprinkled with peanuts.

A New Meaning for Masks

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

A New Meaning for Masks

Regardless of what face mask you use, it is not healthy for the skin to be covered for prolonged periods of time. The skin suffers from rashes, irritations, ingrown hairs, chapping and breakouts. We have seen photos of nurses and doctors on the front line of the pandemic with irritation, hives and even bruises on their skin from masks.

What’s the biggest issue? By keeping your face covered, it creates a hot and humid environment; your breathing creates a lot of trapped moisture. This leads to build up of sweat and sebum on the skin and trapped impurities on the facial mask. This can leave you with inflammation, rashes, and breakouts. I have personally had to treat my skin differently– even at my age of 57—during this Pandemic because of the masks.  Maybe I should say I’m 56?  I think we all should subtract a year from our age since this year really shouldn’t count for any of us. 56 it is!

Below I have made a recommendation for your skin if you are experiencing issues.

Blessings,
Kitty (Owner)

Newsletter Update

New Steps for Our Booking Process

 The holiday season is among us, and while we could all use some holiday cheer, we must remain vigilant and cautious with the effects of Covid-19 still prominent in our daily lives. With that being said, we have updated our intake form and have changed some protocols in the spa.

We will no longer be giving foot soaks before treatments. While they are an amazing way to get our clients grounded and ready for treatments, we feel that as long as SLO county remains in the purple tier we should not offer them. We have also added new questions to our intake form.

To best protect your health and the health of others, all clients must fill out this form before each massage and bodywork session. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call (805) 591-7157. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to seeing you!

Dr. Mikulics’ Corner

Looking forward to our open house and individual demo treatments of TempSure Envi – the latest in Laser RF for the treatment to correct sagging skin, cellulite, wrinkles and enhance elasticity. I love being able to offer effective non-invasive solutions for health and skin care that are safe and don’t require down time! Please see the Spa website for more details on our event.

What is TempSure Envi?
TempSure Envi is a new radiofrequency treatment that minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, tightens skin* and improves the appearance of cellulite.

  • Safe for all skin types and levels of sun exposure
  • No surgery, no needles, no downtime

The Problem
As we age, our bodies can’t generate collagen as fast as it is depleted causing our skin to lose laxity and firmness. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form leaving you with smile lines, crow’s feet and other bothersome creases.

Paso Robles TempSure Envi Spa Treatments
Beautiful Skin. Beautifully Simple.
The Solution
Finally there’s a solution that works! TempSure Envi minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, tightens skin* and improves the appearance of cellulite. It’s safe for all skin types so it fits into any beauty maintenance routine, any time of year!

December
During this season of joy and comfort foods let’s not forget our microbiomes and the benefits it can have on our skin! When it comes to overall skin health, probiotics (topical and oral) are your secret weapon!

PROBIOTICS

  • Combat the negative effects of harmful bacteria
  • Support barrier function (think leaky gut – but on your skin)
  • Support the regulation of your immune system and reduce inflammation
  • Help keep your gut brain skin axis in balance

I love to integrate the use of probiotics along with Botox treatments to achieve beautiful results in your skin. Radiance from the inside out is a great look for the Holidays!

Health, Happiness and Many Blessings,
Stefanie Mikulics, MD

Neck and Shoulder Pain

Roughly 18-26 percent of adults suffer from neck and shoulder pain. Stress is one of the biggest key factors in the cause of a tight neck and shoulder muscle, as well as posture and sleep. Taking time before your day starts, maybe first thing in the morning, to stretch and end with a simple meditation. Allow yourself to take a minute in the day to stop and take a few deep breaths, getting oxygen in to the blood. Stretching and massage will also give relief to tight muscles. The services we provide here at The Spa Central Coast can help you with finding that relief. Our therapists are trained to provide the best therapy possible to help our clients.
Recommended treatments for this type of muscle pain would be:

  • Deep Tissue Massage: this massage gives the deepest body work, allowing for the muscles to be worked and stretched.
  • Back Refresher: this treatment uses our anti inflammation gel coupled with our deep heat oil and the use of hot towels to help relieve inflammation and soothe those tightened neck and shoulder muscles.
  • Anti Stress Massage: this massage is exactly what it says, anti stress. We use an essential oil blend to help calm the mind and soothe the body, relieving some of that tension and stress we tend to carry daily.

Here are a couple of stretches to do in the morning or on a break at work.

Neck Release:

  1. Square the shoulders.
  2. Lower the chin to the chest. You should feel the stretch through the neck and down the spine.
  3. Hold this position for 1 minute.
  4. Gently tilt your head to the left to stretch your right shoulder.
  5. Hold for 1 minute.
  6. Repeat on the opposite side.
  7. Do this to each side 3-5 times.

Across the Chest Stretch:

  1. Bring your right arm across your chest.
  2. Place it in the crease of your left elbow or use your left hand to support your arm.
  3. Hold this position for 1 minute.
  4. Repeat on the opposite side.
  5. Do this stretch 3-5 times.

Product Recommendations

These products offered by the Spa may offer you relief from back and shoulder pain.
