Ali’s Health Corner: Topics that affect our Health & Wellness
When so many stressful things are going on around us, it’s easy to lose hope, to wonder how things will improve, and to find peace. But there is a way. It’s called going within. Too often we look for the answers to what plagues us outside of ourselves when the answer is to get grounded within. It is only then that we can tap into that silent, serene space that is within us all to find the clarity we need. Sometimes that’s hard to do on your own, though, if you don’t know how to do it.
Consider coming to The Spa this month to attend our “Soul Thirst: Mindful/Meditation Class” on Tuesday, November 20th and we’ll teach you how to meditate and find that silent, inner space. Or you may want to come to The Spa to enjoy some relaxation with your friends and family by enjoying one of our many treatments or take advantage of our November specials like our “Intention Facials or Intention Massages for individuals or couples” (see specials below). After all, the holidays should be a time of joy, a time to spend with friends and with family in relaxation rather than stressing out by buying another gift that our loved ones don’t really need.
For a holiday gift this year, consider giving someone the gift of relaxation or health coaching to get them healthier by purchasing a gift card. There are 3 ways you can purchase one: online through our website, call us at (805) 591-7157, or come on in to The Spa. We’re open Mon-Sat 9am-6pm.
Whatever you choose to do, may you have joy, peace, and love.

Kitty’s Corner: Blissful Seaweed Bath
One of my favorite things to do is to take a relaxing bath. I can’t live without our bath spa product called “Blissful Seaweed Bath” and a few drops of our “I Am Stress Free” oil. This is why I decided to make “Blissful Seaweed Bath” our membership product special of the month. Everyone deserves to try this at least once in their lives. There’s a really good reason why Kings and Queens soaked in bathtubs—to de-stress and to pamper themselves. After you try it with our products, my bet is that you will wonder why you have not made this a part of your own ritual earlier.
“Blissful Seaweed Bath” is loaded with magnesium and calcium and other essential minerals that we are often lacking. With this magnesium and calcium, you actually absorb it better than if you were to ingest it. It crosses the skin and blood barriers. You’ll feel grounded and relaxed like you’re in a beautiful meditation.
Here’s my process for this “spoil myself” ritual: turn off the lights, light a few candles, 2 scoops of “Blissful Seaweed Bath”, 5 drops of “I Am Stress Free” oil, breathe in and let go. It’s time to surrender! Your muscles will thank you and so will anyone around you because you will feel more balanced after this ritual. Enjoy! This is one of my absolute favorites.
November 2018 Special
Intention Massage (for singles or couples)
One of the definitions of intention is “a thing intended; an aim or plan. But another definition is “the healing process of a wound.” Sometimes we need to take time to focus on an intention because we are in need of healing whether it’s our body, our mind, or our soul. If you need some healing, try our Intention Massage. We’ll show you how to select an intention card that your soul needs. The message will be woven by our massage therapists through your massage experience. You then will take the card home with you to further ponder why you selected that card. It’s a great way to bring more awareness to yourself about something you need while settling into the gentle and skilled hands of our massage therapists. Your body will receive the loving care it needs this holiday, as will your soul. This massage is for men and women. This massage is 60 minutes for only $100 (for single person); $235 total (for couples).
