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:
BEFORE ENTERING THE SPA
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, EQUIPMENT & INSTRUMENTS
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.

It’s the Month of Mom!
Kitty 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.
Kitty learned from her mom how to work hard and to have fun. My mom taught me how to laugh at myself and how to stay healthy. The influence of our moms no doubt helped Kitty to become a business owner and inspired me to ultimately dive into my 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 during your facials together in our lovely room for two 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 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.Click Here to purchase the 60 min Love You, Mom! Facial Click Here to purchase the 30 min Love You, Mom!

Kitty (Owner) & Ali (The Spa Director and Master Certified Health Coach)
Our classes on Health and Wellness Topics are beginning this month. Please join me (Ali– Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach) for our one hour class “What Is Stressing Me Out & How Do I Fix It?” on Thursday, May 24 at 6:00pm or on Tuesday, May 29 at 6:00pm at The Spa’s Meditation Room. Do you know why you are stressed? Sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t know what is exactly causing the general sense of stress we feel. Regardless of what camp you’re in, this class will benefit you. You’ll learn about how to figure out what you’re body is telling you, practical ways to deal with stress, how to eat during stressful times, and how to get some sleep when you’re mind is wired but your body is tired. Healthy snacks will be provided. There are only 6 spots available per class so book early! Each class is only $45.Click Here to Book for May 24th Class Click Here to Book for May 29th Class
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.
Thank you for your support regarding encouraging local and state leaders to modify the CAMTC Certification. The City of Paso Robles heard us! At their City Council meeting on May 2, they did the first reading of a new amendment that will be more fair to legitimate spa businesses and legitimate massage therapists. Paso Robles’s City Council voted unanimously in favor of the amendment to the City’s massage therapy ordinance. A big thanks to the City Manager, Tom Frutchey, and Commander Ty Lewis for taking the lead on this and working so closely with us. And a big shout out to City Council for supporting it.
New Hours (just a gentle reminder)
As you know…we are making health and wellness a larger part of The Spa Central Coast, and part of being healthy is getting rest and relaxation. Starting March 2018, we will be closing on Sundays (except for parties of 4 or more and holidays) in order to give our team a day of rest and time to spend with their families. Thank you for your continued loyalty. We hope that you will support us on this new path and book your appointments Monday-Saturday from 9:00am-6:00pm.
