Ayurvedic Therapists at Sama Ayurveda perform traditional Indian Ayurvedic treatments to help heal bodies and balance their energy. Warm oil massages unwind muscles, and fragrant flower foot soaks steep feet in detoxifying essential oils. Beyond relaxation services, staff members offer Ayurvedic lifestyle consultations to cover everything from weight loss to stress management. The spa is infused with aromatic botanicals to promote healing and tranquility as soon as customers step inside, and outside they can stroll in the lush courtyard, relax on benches, and pet the flowers.
Spa C?a's Alicia Cuppari has been a massage therapist and aesthetician for 10 years, so she knows a thing or two about relaxation and health. Over the past decade, she's honed her waxing and brow-tinting skills, and she's studied massage closely to specialize in three massage modalities. Alicia has also perfected her talent for performing facials, and she's discerning when it comes to the products she uses. When caring for a client's complexion, Alicia eschews chemical-laden serums for a line of plant-based, cruelty-free beautifiers free of additives.
On her website, Jennifer Weston is described as a “renaissance woman of beauty”—and for good reason: her Rolodex of talents includes cosmetology, massage therapy, makeup applications, and waxing. She’s spent the past two decades perfecting these skills, eventually ending up at her current venture, Brows to Brazilian Waxing, Make Up, and Skin Care Salon.
The Brazilian in the salon’s name denotes one of Jennifer’s specialties, in which she eradicates all hair from bikini areas in less than 10 minutes. She also embraces oft-ignored demographics by practicing her speed-waxing techniques on males and moms-to-be. But waxing isn’t all she does here. Jennifer turns her focus to the skin during custom chemical peels and facials that draw on ingredients such as honey paraffin and seaweed. This natural approach also colors her body treatments, which range from aromatherapy sea-salt scrubs, which slough off dead cells, to herbal detox body wraps.

Sprinting seemingly endlessly on a treadmill, daydreaming while pedaling a stationary bicycle, or using the same weight machines continually are activities that frequently plague most exercisers. None of these dull scenarios exist at CrossFit Santa Barbara, a fitness program that harnesses a different workout each day to blast participants with strength training and conditioning. Here, participants rotate through circuits, moving objects such as tires or small buildings before lifting weights and executing gymnastics movements, all of which result in increased endurance, agility, and strength.
