In May there is so much to be thankful for:  #1 our Moms!!

Maybe you’re a mom to a few or to many people, or maybe you’re a mom to some fur babies. Either way, you are the nurturing soul that this Universe gave us to teach us love. Being loved unconditionally and loving unconditionally… these are always the real love that many of us experienced by our moms or those who we adopted as moms.

So for this, we want to celebrate all you MOMS!

Blessings,

Kitty

Pride Month - Couples Massage Special

Couples Massage Special – Pride Month

May is also Pride Month.  We celebrate diversity and loving one another regardless of gender or sexual orientation.  So for the month of May, we’re offering a special on our Couples massage.  This soothing experience begins in our meditation room where the two of you will soak your feet in a beautiful, copper bowl and enjoy your choice of beverage.  A couple’s relationship card will be drawn for you to take home with you and you will pick an oil to set the intention of your massage together while you enjoy your foot soak.  Your massage therapists will then take you out of your foot soak and lead you to one of our loving Couple’s room where you   will be massaged by your respective therapist leaving you feeling more connected to one another. If you’d like to bring friends with you, you can book them for a couple’s massage if you’d like, as we now have 2 couples rooms available.

What’s New at the Spa?

Cryo Facial and Cryo Slimming/Toning

I have been researching for years now and finally found what I have been looking for to step up our facials in order to leave you looking even younger with tighter skin, greater reduction of pore size and increased improvement of skin tone. If you haven’t heard the big news, we have the amazing Cryo Facial and Cryo Slimming/Toning available.

The Cryo Facial is a natural alternative to toxic injections and surgery because it helps to eliminate fine lines and fat around the neck, just like the toxic options do, but without the toxins! It’s perfect for reducing signs of aging ~ a natural facelift! See our menu for more information.  We believe you’ll find this is a facial you don’t want to go without!

Check Out Our New Packages

I recently went away to recharge myself, and when I visited a top-notch spa in Tahoe, it was amazing but it didn’t offer anything to come back each day and really get a reset.  I thought, we need to show how this is done!  So I’ve created a new package to be tailor-made for those that live in town or for those visiting and staying at one of our lovely hotels or AirBNBs . I have included some activities and other local energy workers to round out this package in order to help you feel your best and go back home completely recharged, while you’ll also learn a new pattern of self care that you can implement at home. It’s called the 4-Day Reset Package.

Each day, you will pampered and set up with great food choices and other amazing experiences once you leave The Spa.  This package is not just for one person, so if you’d like to bring one friend or more, we can accommodate.  Call (805) 591-7157 to book this reservation.

Spa Packages

Extended Hours on Tuesdays for Spa Members

One last thing to mention is during the Summer months, we ask our members to do their best to book during the week rather than on Saturdays. We appreciate your help as we are closed on Sundays so that we can give our employees a rest, and we are trying to accommodate our out-of-town guests on Saturdays.

To help our members during the week bookings, we are now offering services on Tuesdays until 8pm to accommodate members that work during the week and find it hard to get in otherwise.

We are now able to provide you with outdoor massages at one of our favorite wineries:  Rava Wines.    The winery is beautiful with a calm and relaxing ambiance.  You can also taste after your massage,  but please schedule a tasting in advance as tastings are by appointment only.

Call us now at 805-591-7157 to schedule your massage and if you want to do a tasting after your massage, give Rava Wines a call to schedule 805-238-7282

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

Have you noticed love and romance seem to be in the air? 

Could it be because Valentine’s Day is in the middle of February thus it is meant to celebrate the entire month of February as the month of LOVE?

What’s even better is that not only is February the month of LOVE but this February is also a Leap Year. This means we get one extra day for LOVE this month!

We all know love can be a complicated subject so we thought this might be the perfect time to learn a little bit more about this thing called love.

Did you know that the ancient Greeks used eight words to define the different states of love:

1) Storge:  Natural affection

2) Philia: Friendship

3) Eros: Sexual and erotic

4) Agape: Unconditional divine love

5) Lutus:  Flirting

6) Pragma: Committed married love

7) Philautia:  Self love

8) Mania: Obsessive love

The ancient Greeks were pretty smart to recognize all the different ways we love.  But even then, they realized that Self-love was crucial.  The name they gave it was Philautia.  Without Self love, we really can’t express the other types of love naturally.  The bottom line is to love ourselves in a healthy way is healing for us.  It makes our life easier to handle. It allows us to love others also in a more healthy way.

So in this month of love, let each of us ask ourselves “How much do we really love our self?”

Be honest.  How much harder are you on yourself than others?  Do you always take care of everyone else first, and if there is any energy left you come last?  If you don’t do everything in that order do you then feel guilty? Do you find yourself angry or out of sorts for no reason?  Or what about shame?  Is that shame just hiding inside, you don’t know why you feel shame but you just do if you look in the corners of your mind?

Research proves that over time loving and forgiving yourself improves everything in your life. Getting rid of those FALSE beliefs helps to eventually heal you.  How do you do it?  It takes work, it takes time, and sometimes it isn’t easy.

In my research for this I came across a woman named Polly Noble.  She was diagnosed with cancer two times before she was 28 years old.  She survived her cancer and went on to share some of her lessons on life. You can look her up on the Internet and see what she believes helped her in that journey.  Briefly, she said she must be in the moment and give herself ‘space’.  She also suggested that each of us make our own well being a priority.  Sounds like philautia to me!

She recommended giving yourself gifts that you may have given to someone else.  She called it a ‘Duvet’ day.  For example, book a full day at the Spa.  Or a facial…or a massage where it is quiet and you don’t have to think or talk or act. Be good to You.  You are worth every penny.  Every moment.  Just because it is February, the love month, try it.  You may want to do that on a regular basis!

Much love,
Kitty (Owner)

What’s New Now Offering:

Shamanic Energy Clearing and Soul Retrievals

For a limited time, Shamanic Practitioner Denise Braun will be supporting clients in shamanic energy clearing and soul retrievals. These practices are in alignment with the Q’ero lineage of Shaman (the Peruvian Inca Shaman). Denise’s rites of shamanic healing have been initiated through this lineage to support the energy healing of her clients. If you have struggled with illness, fatigue, depression, anxiety or toxicity, consider a shamanic clearing session to regenerate and open blocked chakras. If you have struggled with your life’s purpose, or lack ambition or motivation, or have struggled in your relationships, a soul retrieval session will help to restore your lost soul and revitalize your energy.

Both sessions require anywhere from 1-2 hours, so flexibility in your schedule is crucial. Every energy clearing and soul retrieval session is unique. Please note: this medicine is powerful. When booking these sessions, please be sure to read through the preparation expectations (available as a handout at the Spa Central Coast). The effects of this energy work lasts far beyond your initial session. You can anticipate ‘light bulb’ moments, some changes in your emotional state, and a need for more sleep post-shamanic session.

Shamanic Energy Clearing: $375/session

Shamanic Soul Retrieval: $450/session

Unsure which session to book? Speak with Kitty at the Spa CC to be sure.

Tarot Readings

For a limited time, Denise Braun (Author, Intuitive, and Shamanic Practitioner) will be offering Tarot readings at the Spa CC. Are you looking for guidance with a big life change? Relationship advice? Are you blocked, stuck or uninspired? Tarot is a tool of divination that has been practiced since the 15th century. Denise uses intuition and energy to read your cards and support you with expert guidance, and has been reading Tarot for over 25 years.

Half Hour Tarot: $165

Full Hour Tarot: $275

Body Mechanics Tip of the Month: Why am I sore after a massage?

This is a common question I can guarantee every therapist has heard before! Well, I’m here to explain a few things and provide some very important tips on how to minimize soreness.

Massage is a powerful tool to our everyday life; besides making us feel great, it is a stress reducer, a preventative for injury and sickness and it has the power to increase our strength and productivity.  I could go on all day about the endless benefits of receiving regular bodywork!

In a sense, receiving a massage can almost feel like you have had a great workout – endorphins, blood flow, a clearer mind, and great sleep are just a few of the post massage/workout benefits!

But chances are there will be times when you wake up the next morning feeling sore (this is normal!).

So what is a good way to minimize that soreness?

Glad you asked!

1. Maintenance! Get on a regular schedule for your bodywork. Stay ahead of the game!

One thing you have probably heard me say is, “the pain comes last.” Don’t wait for the pain to find you, because 9 times out of 10, the problem was there far before the pain kicked in so make the commitment to preventative sessions.

The more commitment you put into keeping your muscles smooth and “knot free” the less achy and sore you will be post massage.

2. Hydration! Be purposeful with your hydration pre and post bodywork. The average body requires half of your body weight in ounces of H2O daily. So use that as a guide when gauging how much H2O you should drink.

3. Another great tool in addition to massage and optimum wellness is adding on a far infrared session prior to your massage session. Benefits include:

  • Elimination of heavy metals – far infrared sauna penetrates the body on a cellular level to eliminate heavy metals, toxins, and lactic acid
  • Preparation of your muscle and tissue for a deeper level massage
  • Promotion of muscle recovery.

Post massage recommendations:

An Epson salt soak is always a wonderful idea (preferably pharmaceutical grade)

Magnesium has a powerful effect on the body so utilize those benefits.

DO NOT complete a heavy workout post massage!  Allow your body to rebalance naturally using the tools and tips provided.

Here are a few recommended post massage success products we have right here at The Spa Central Coast.

1. Poseidon muscle rub (Arnica based anti-inflammatory)

2. CBD topical rub

3. “I am soothed of aches and pains” essential oil can be added into your bath or applied directly

4. White egret pharmaceutical grade Epson salt and magnesium oil (Lavender or Eucalyptus)

Feel free to ask your therapist for recommendations and also check with the front desk if you need more info on any of these products!

In good health,

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.

Namaste,

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.

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.

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

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,

  • Our NEW HOURS for 2019 are Monday-Thursday 10:00am-6:00pm and Friday-Saturday 9:00am-6:00pm. We are not going to open on the last Sunday of each month any longer due to a lack of people taking advantage of it.
  • All of our therapists are now employees! We’re hoping to further grow The Spa. Although gratuities are not expected, they are certainly appreciated by our staff.

Guided Meditation in our Meditation Room

Every Thursday from 9:00am-9:45am

Guided Meditation:  This is led by Carmen Rose, who is certified in meditation and in yoga.  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 from 9:00am-9:45am every Thursday.  It’s free for members.  $5 for those who took Carmen’s 4-week January course and $8 for everyone else.  Hit the button below to sign up.
