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.
Founded by owner Tina Hasche with her mother and two sisters, Skin Deep has been pampering the local community in its warmly lit San Roque Plaza location for more than 30 years. Inside this friendly neighborhood beauty sanctum, manicurist and aesthetician Caroline Barbee nourishes nails and corrals cuticles with 90 minutes of safe and soothing indulgence. Dapper digits find revivification during the Skin Deep manicure, which shapes nails and cuticles and massages muscles tired from playing finger cymbals or pounding floor-size keyboards. A spa pedicure returns put-upon leg landings to a sandal-ready state, beginning with an aromatic whirlpool footbath, followed by a sea-salt exfoliation with essential oils and a foot-and-leg massage. Calluses are filed, cuticles are curtailed, and polish is painted on with the same delicate techniques used by Picasso during his lacquer period.

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
We offer a select menu of treatments that have given us a reputation in Santa Barbara as the place to go for eyelash extensions, facial exercise lessons, and collagen induction therapy. Clients love our treatments because they are all-natural alternatives to facelifts, fillers, and Botox.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Beauty is on the inside and on the outside. We believe that our clients are beautiful on the inside already, and it is our job to let that beauty shine through to the outside in the most natural way possible.
Alki Art & Wellness Institute galvanizes overall well-being through holistic techniques designed to promote relaxation, weight loss, pain management, and lifestyle change. In this one-hour session, licensed acupuncturists Traver H. Boehm or Alexandra Carmel will first talk over patients’ needs and concerns to identify the potential sources of discomfort, anxiety, or chronic trapeze-artist inversion. Acupuncture stimulates the release of pain-reducing neurotransmitters and helps balance hormone levels. The ancient Chinese treatment’s fine needles, slipped into the skin near the surface, are nearly imperceptible, but will send a polite thank-you for the invitation to enter and improve the body’s flow of vital energy, or qi.
A Signature Spa provides a soothing boutique setting for pampering, beautification, and evading warrant-toting posses. Each Stress Melt Away package begins by treating pool propellers to a hot stone foot soak with eucalyptus while their owners knock back a complimentary beverage and light snack. Next, a potent combo of steam room and infrared sauna detoxes the body of such common poisons as poison, while a Swiss shower cleanses the corpus in a neutral, conflict-eluding locale. An application of cocoa-butter body moisturizer turns your dry skin's desert into a skin dessert, giving it the smoothness and sweet flavor of a relaxed, spreadable concoction that pairs well with toasted bread. A Signature Spa's technicians will then get the cranium tingling with the sweet smells of a peppermint scalp massage. The entire two-hour relaxathon wraps up with a 50-minute full-body massage that leaves you feeling as loose and limber as a spider monkey after yoga class.
