Mother's Day Gift Card Special

Mother’s Day Gift Cards

With Mother’s Day approaching, please take advantage of our Mother’s Day Special…for every $100 spent on a gift card, you will receive an additional $50. Once we are open, everyone is going to need a massage!!

If you’d like your gift card in this special bag and tissue paper, then please call Kitty directly at (805) 748-9912.  She will be at The Spa a little more often to prepare The Spa for reopening when we get the okay.  But please call her first.


To our wonderful members and guests,

I want to assure our guests and Members that The Spa Central Coast takes the health and safety of both you and our employees very seriously, and so I’m writing to you to share some of our current standard health and safety practices at The Spa, as well share some new protocols we’ll be implementing due to COVID-19 that will assist us in getting back to work and helping increase your immunity through massage and other health treatments.

As you all know, the COVID-19 virus has surrounded us with growing public health risks, and we have carefully adjusted and increased our already stringent protocols and are closely monitoring the situation with the County’s assistance.  In the past, as well as currently, The Spa Central Coast has always followed, and is committed to, California State Board sanitation protocols for disinfecting and disease prevention.  With guidance from local officials and Center for Disease Controls, we have intensified our efforts around the best practices for virus prevention.  It starts with each and every one of us taking responsibility to care for ourselves and staying home when we are not feeling well.

Here’s what we’re doing to assure this:


Staff’s temperatures will be taken upon arrival at The Spa’s front door before they are allowed to enter the building to start their shift. Their temperatures will be taken via a No Contact IR Digital Forehead Thermometer, and their temperatures will be documented.  If any employee has an elevated temperature of more than 99.9 degrees, cough or any signs of illness, that employee will be sent home for the 14 day incubation period.  We will also be taking clients’ temperatures via a No Contact IR Digital Forehead Thermometer at the front door before they are able to enter The Spa and clients will be verbally screened for any illnesses and asked if they have taken a shower in the last 12 hours.  Any client with an elevated temperature of more than 99.9 or any sign of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment and a service charge will be due.  Any client without a temperature or signs of illness will be able to come in for their appointment.  Clients will immediately remove their shoes and put on Spa sandals and will be asked to wash their hands and wipe down their cell phones with rubbing alcohol.  However, we will be asking clients not to use their cell phones in The Spa.  Our in-take forms have been adjusted, and even returning guests such as members, will be required now to answer questions each month in case there are any changes in a client’s health.


Our treatment rooms, supplies used, equipment and instruments have always been disinfected/sterilized between clients. We will continue to follow that protocol from the California State Board. We will now clean each treatment room floors after each appointment. We have always disinfected shared surfaces throughout The Spa such as doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, light switches and counter tops through out the day and will continue to do so.  This has always been a normal procedure you may not have known about.

While you are in your foot soak, we will now spray clients’ hands with an essential oil that has healing benefits and kills germs and bacteria without any harmful effects, and clients’s hands will be wrapped in a warm towel while they’re in their foot soak.  Our staff will continue to sanitize their hands just before and after each service with each client.  For the time being, masks and gloves will be worn during the services upon a client’s request.  We also have several air filters in The Spa to help keep the air clean.

Our appointments will be spaced so that no more than 7 people can be in the reception area and meditation room at one time, most likely it will be less.  We look forward to helping you get back in your committed self-care and wellness routines and will look forward to seeing you soon at The Spa Central Coast.

Much love,

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,

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:

  • One-hour private sessions for $70/session
  • Attend my class this month on “Self Love & Forgiveness” on Tuesday, May 21st for $45
  • 10-pack of 1/2 hour sessions of private guided meditation for $150
  • Four 90 minute sessions of Prime Time Health (nutrition class) for $265 (based on Dr Williams Sears scientifically proven plan)

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.
