Nestled inside Dolce Salon, licensed massage therapists Kaye Palomarez and Jesse Ramos enact a range of soothing services. Eschewing every child?s dream of becoming the first astronaut to play in the major leagues, Kaye instead focused her energies on massage therapy at an early age, devoting time to mastering various massage modalities such as Swedish, polarity, and reflexology. Kaye and Jesse?s dexterous digits also specialize in aromatherapy and shiatsu acupoints, services that can be combined to create custom massage experiences and party packages for special events such as bridal showers, bachelor parties, prison breaks, and vacations. Additionally, Kaye works to assuage more than just muscular tension by involving herself with community-oriented philanthropic organizations such as Empty Bowls and the Katherine Harvey Foundation.
Before unwinding with a massage, visitors to Santa Barbara Wine Spa have an important decision to make: red, white, or sparkling? Relaxing with a glass of wine is hardly uncommon, but at this aptly named oasis, local wine, local products, and expert pampering techniques swirl into decadent spa packages. Massages and calming hot-stone-throwing contests incorporate body butters by Santa Barbara's own Grapeseed Company, along with aromatherapy mists. Pair this with a choice of Santa Barbara wine, and all of your stressful thoughts will be banished away.
Technicians, artists, and aestheticians at Cloud 9 Treatments lavish individual attention on everyone they beautify. They use special airbrushes to gild skin with custom spray tans. They apply facial treatments to restore hydration and brightness while banishing acne and dead skin, and waxing technicians leave bodies smooth. The staff can also lengthen locks with all natural human-hair extensions.
Aesthetician Susie Roman has been a local force in beauty for more than 30 years, providing Ventura County and Bakersfield with licensed health and beauty services including facials, waxes, massages, and mani-pedis. Roman’s comfortable spa and tanning salon specializes in skin-friendly packages, each accompanied by deep exfoliation and a steam treatment. After clients have been moisturized, deblemished, and completely plucked of feathers, their treatments wrap up with a soothing neck and shoulder massage.
With more than 10 years of beauty-industry experience, massage therapist and aesthetician Christine Rasmussen knows aesthetic treatments inside and out. And at her beauty haven, Skin, she requires that her staff does, too. Together, the knowledgeable team of certified technicians creates a welcoming space where they personalize each skincare and body service. Aestheticians reach for skin-type specific Ayur-Medic and Dermalogica products to enhance the cleansing effects of facial or the exfoliating impact of a chemical peel or diamond microdermabrasion. This same attention to detail can be found during customized body treatments, which range from trigger-point therapy and lomilomi massages to a detoxifying body scrub made with sea salt or a sugar mixture infused with fruit, chocolate, and coffee ingredients.
Skin's dedicated team also provides mobile spa treatments and spa parties, both of which can be performed in the comfort of the client's home, office, or giant, walk-in makeup compact.
Simply put, Eric Charles has healing hands. These hands can perform a variety of massages that detoxify the body, prevent injury, and alleviate chronic discomfort.

He also performs sports massages that break up tension with Swedish-style strokes and strategically placed knuckleballs.
