Kitty’s Corner

Today, I (Ali) was traveling down Creston Road and a beautiful sporty car came out of nowhere and sped in front of me as though tearing for the finish line in the Indy 500.  Seriously…it was going fast.  A lovely, small black bird with white wing tips tried to fly low across the road just as the car zoomed forward.  The small bird got sucked up in right tire and hood of the car and fell limp to the ground within seconds on left side of the vehicle.  The driver didn’t even notice the bird and kept going the same speed as before.  But my heart stopped and a sick feeling and sadness filled me as the bird lay lifeless on the pavement.  I felt helpless as there was nothing I could do.

As this bird lie motionless, it reminded me about how so much damage is caused by us and to each other.  Sometimes we move so mindlessly, so involved in our own thing that we bulldoze over others without even recognizing that we have hurt someone’s feelings or seriously wounded someone’s heart.  I’ve been guilty of this myself before.  Are you speeding through life?

Thanksgiving is almost upon us and Christmas is just around the corner.  Sometimes spending more time with family can ignite our own personal triggers, but this year, we hope you remember the bird and slow down; become more mindful.  Might there be a better way to resolve whatever challenging situation arises?  Whatever you do…don’t be a turkey.  Try gentleness this year—toward yourself and toward others.  See what a difference it can make.

If you’d like us to help you with that gentleness, come treat yourself or someone else to our pumpkin facial special or enjoy a sound therapy session special below.  We hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving!!

We wish you all the best and optimal health!

Much love,
Kitty (Owner) & Ali (Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach)

November Specials

Pumpkin Facial

Be gentle to your skin and step into our version of a pumpkin patch at The Spa Central Coast by trying out our pumpkin facial.  Our skilled estheticians will provide the TLC your skin needs this November through our pumpkin facial.  And it smells good, too—like you’ve jumped into Fall.  Pumpkin enzymes are great for removing dead skin and leaving a natural glow.  Your face will receive a dose of our Spa line products as well to remove environmental stress from your skin so you can look radiant without a costume this year.  This luscious treatment is 60 minutes for only $110.

Sound Tuning Special

Sound Therapy Tuning Special

Have you lost that gusto you used to have or just feel out of balance in your life?  Maybe you’re struggling to lose weight or maybe you’re tired of the same stuff dragging you down and you need help connecting.  Tuning is being used to treat ADHD, PTSD, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety and depression.  We’re a vibration and frequency, so it makes sense to treat the body and mind with sound therapy.  A tuning may just be what you need.  You’ll enjoy a 60-min session of frequency-specific tuning forks to find static in the electromagnetic energy that surrounds your body.  Tuning takes this stuck energy, reharmonizes it, and returns it back to the body in order to restore the body’s vitality.  It can help with depression, anxiety, physical pain, PTSD, stress, addiction recovery, grief, and more.  Normally $95 for this 60-min treatment, you’ll receive 10% off this month (so $85.50) for any client who has not tried it at The Spa Central Coast before.

What Sets Us Apart from Other Day Spas

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.

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

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.

Much Love,
Kitty (Owner)
