David McVeigh grew up in Ireland where he competed in road races and worked as a sports therapist. While he enjoyed his work, David felt limited in his abilities to rehabilitate his athletes. He?d learned firsthand the positive effects of massage therapy at his job and decided to make the switch, enrolling in a two-year course to learn the ins and outs of massage and bodywork.
Today, the owner of McVeigh Massage and his team in their quaint two-room studio, offer Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and prenatal massages using heated pads and less-oily massage creams. Inside their serene and posh location, the team treats a variety of clients suffering from various body injuries such as chronic lower-back strain resulting from computer engineer work or inflamed muscles springing from strenuous exercises.

The dental team at Santa Barbara Dental Spa understands the anxiety that often accommodates visits to the dentist. That’s why they’ve designed their dental office for relaxation. Here, the ambient sounds of the dental office, such as the whir of the drill and the loud clicks of “Chewing for Beginners” classes, give way to soothing sounds of a waterfall. Meanwhile, scented treatment rooms court nostrils with aromatherapy. At the technological end, digital x-rays guard patients against the doses of radiation emitted by traditional x-rays, and water laser tools virtually eliminates the grinding, heat, and skull-vibration of standard metal drills.
