Don't be surprised if you suddenly feel more relaxed upon entering Ocean Day Spa. The full-service spa's interior was inspired by the Zen tenet of simplicity, and bamboo plants next to comfy chairs help set the tone. There's also something you won't see: gemstones were placed inside the spa's walls as it was being built to create balance, peace, and harmony within.
The serene setting is the perfect place to get a signature spa treatment such as a warm bamboo massage, which uses heated bamboo rods and lemongrass essential oil to relax muscles and eliminate aches. When it comes to skincare, a pumpkin facial peel polishes skin with fruit enzymes and ingredients that help reduce sun damage. These complex treatments are administered by the spa's talented staff.

The laid-back, fun-loving mentality of SoCal surf culture pervades Spa Samudra & Hair Lounge. Kids and pets walk freely throughout the premises as shoppers peruse the organic skincare line, made from wholesome, all-natural ingredients. Spa Samudra, however, seamlessly balances this surfer charm with the staples of a traditional day spa. Its organic skincare products, for example, are used in classic facials, which include steam cleans, exfoliation, and optional extractions. The aesthetic team also brightens faces with peels and soothes feet with detox footbaths. In addition, the 11 hairstylists at the up-and-coming hair salon pamper strands with an array of haircuts, color, and smoothing Brazilian Blowouts.
Polished Images, which is both a relaxing day spa and a full-service hair and nail salon, transforms clients with the help of various Pureology hair products, hard wax, and hawaiian kukui-nut massage oil. Amid the spa's muted lighting, earth-toned walls, and floral accents, licensed aestheticians beautify skin with facials, waxing, and custom airbrush tanning. Next door at the bright salon, hairstylists stand diligently over heads, snipping and arranging coifs into everyday styles or elaborate updos for special occasions and trips to the mailbox.
The certified massage therapists at Healing Touch Reflexology draw from Eastern and Western modalities to ease muscle tension and detoxify bodies. To target specific concerns, therapists tailor treatments by consulting with clients before each massage. Reflexology, their signature service, stimulates energy meridians on the feet to mimic acupuncture's healing effect on organ function, preventing the liver from accidentally producing saltwater taffy. Massages take place in candlelit treatment rooms that soothe with water fountains, soft music, and aromatherapy.
For Carlsbad Holistic Therapies owner Marion Mahoney, healing happens from the inside out. Her experience runs the gamut from yoga therapy to nutritional wellness, a well-rounded background that is the foundation for the treatments and informative sessions she offers at this holistic-minded spa.
Many of the massage treatments blend natural oils and aromatherapy with bodywork and reflexology that targets specific areas associated with chronic physical discomfort. Nutritional counseling teaches clients the physical benefits of eating whole foods and taking vitamin supplements, and a biomeridian assessment and energy balancing helps pinpoint imbalances associated with organ function or food sensitivities.
