New Santa Barbara Body Wrap Treatment

We are updating our Santa Barbara Day Spa menu and this month we are highlighting our newest body wrap treatment, which is an amazing experience!

The Sundãri™ Nourishing Wrap

This treatment begins in our Vichy shower room with a full body exfoliation to remove all signs of dry, flaky skin.

You then transfer to a massage hut and your choice of Ayurvedic Sundãri™ oils will be warmed and poured over your body before you are cocooned in a thermal blanket. As you enjoy the warm comfort of the wrap, a relaxing head, neck, and foot massage is given. Once your wrap is removed, a rich, healing Sundãri™ body lotion is gently massaged into your skin.

After your treatment, we invite you to enjoy a hot cup of tea in our Tea Lounge and complete your treatment in the dry sauna.

The amazing and nourishing Sundãri™ body products combined with the skilled massage therapist’s hands truly makes this the Ultimate Spa Experience!

Book your Sundãri™ body wrap treatment today by calling Evolutions Medical & Day Spa in Santa Barbara at (805) 695-2189.

Santa Barbara Body Scrub Treatment

Our Santa Barbara Body Scrub treatment for the summer season is the Rose Dream. Your treatment will start with a luxurious rose-scented body scrub to exfoliate away dead skin cells. Rose Hip and Palmarosa help to balance the skin while bringing the skin to a normal and healthy-looking state. Rose Hip oil is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids making it a superb natural moisturizer and hydrator. Palmarosa is known to be stimulating for both the body and mind. It also supports healthy skin.

After the relaxing scrub, you are rinsed under the Vichy shower (pictured at right) – a “rainbar” over the treatment table that adds another level of bliss.

Your treatment finishes with Rose Hip and Palmarosa Balancing Moisturizer for soft, supple skin.

Purchase the body lotion on the way out so you can keep your skin hydrated and rosy all summer long.

Santa Barbara Sauna Has Healthy Benefits

Evolutions Dry Eucalyptus Sauna in Santa Barbara

At Evolutions Day Spa in Santa Barbara, our locker rooms feature dry eucalyptus saunas for our guests to unwind prior to a treatment or to continue in their state of bliss after.

You may be surprised to hear that several recently published studies have shown that dry saunas have health benefits that go far beyond relaxation.

Here are the findings:

  • “The more often the men went to the sauna, and the longer they stayed, the lower their risk for sudden cardiac death, fatal coronary heart disease and fatal cardiovascular disease over those 20 years.” – A Finnish study that looked at dry sauna bathing and middle-aged men over a 20 year period.
  • “Regular sauna bathing is a simple, self-directed treatment that is effective for reducing headache pain intensity in chronic tension-type headaches (CTTH).” – Study by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
  • Sauna-induced sweating detoxifies the body and raises the heart rate (like exercise, but in a more passive way). A study of 19 and 20 year olds who used saunas saw their body mass index (BMI) drop, with the overweight and obese participants losing the most. – Study published in Scientific World Journal.

Reap the benefits of a dry sauna in Santa Barbara at Evolutions. Use of the shower and sauna facilities is complementary with any 60 minute (or longer) day spa treatment.

Book a Santa Barbara massage, facial, or body treatment, by contacting us at (805) 695-2189.

Get a Santa Barbara Massage for a Mental Health Boost

santa barbara massage evolutions

Feeling tired or feeling blue? We invite you to come in to Evolutions and have a massage in Santa Barbara for a mental health boost. While it is well known that massage can help many physical ailments (such as reducing pain and stiffness, relaxing muscles, and relieving headaches), it is less widely reported about how massage can benefit a person’s mental health.

The American Massage Therapy Association has published studies about the benefits of using massage to treat mental health problems in different situations. Here are the findings:

  • The use of back massage while receiving chemotherapy was shown to significantly reduce anxiety and acute fatigue.
  • An 8-week study of HIV patients who were mentally stable but diagnosed with major depressive disorder showed that the severity of depression was significantly reduced at week 4 and continued to be less at weeks 6 and 8.
  • Military veterans returning from Afghanistan or Iraq who incorporated massage therapy as part of their reintegration found that worry, anxiety, and depression (along with physical pain) was significantly reduced.
  • Nurses who received massage during work hours immediately felt relief from stress, headaches, insomnia, and other pain.

Why is massage so beneficial for a mental health boost? It is known that Swedish massage causes the body to release oxytocin. This hormone plays a role in many positive emotional aspects such as maternal instincts, love and bonding, friendship development, reduction of anxiety, and more. The mood-elevating serotonin is also released during massage.

Many consider massage a “luxury” treatment but research is revealing that it is a valuable tool for healing both the body and mind. If you’re looking to boost your mental state, boost your wellness, boost you health, and feel good – book a massage in Santa Barbara today. Contact Evolutions Medical & Day Spa at 805-695-2189 to make an appointment.

Santa Barbara Facial Testimonial

santa barbara facial evolutionsAt Evolutions Medical & Day Spa in Santa Barbara, we offer a wide variety of facials that are customizable because we don’t believe that our facial treatments should be “one-size-fits-most”. Skin condition and issues can vary greatly, so we trust the expertise of our aestheticians to modify a facial to best fit the needs of the client and their skin. With this approach, our clients usually leave with glowing skin and often do not experience any discomfort afterwards such as blotchiness, excessive peeling, or inflammation.

Facials are one of our most popular day spa treatments and we are always ready to listen to any feedback. While many clients will verbally tell us their thoughts on their facial experience, we were really pleased to find this wonderful write up on a style and fashion blog by a woman named Sophia who had been to Evolutions for our Age-Defying Oxygen Facial in December. Read her Santa Barbara facial testimonial here.

If you want to share your own testimonial on Evolutions and your treatment(s), we’re all ears! Share your review on Yelp or Google+.

Santa Barbara Massage Story

Darla Bea Smith, a marketing pro by day and DJ by night, came into our Santa Barbara Day Spa for a massage. She gave us a great review online.  In addition to the review, the story she shared with our front desk was something so many of us could relate to, so we wanted to tell more of her Santa Barbara Massage experience.

Evolutions Tea Lounge Invites You to Relax Before or After Your Day Spa Appointment
Evolutions Tea Lounge

“My company gave me an Evolutions Day Spa gift certificate…and I sat on it…for months. Last month, I was feeling pretty run down from working a lot of DJ events on the weekends and keeping up with the demands of my Monday-Friday marketing job and it was becoming obvious to my coworkers. My boss asked if I had booked my massage yet and I said no…I was saving it (for what, I don’t know!). I told her I didn’t know how I’d make time and she told me I HAD to make time – I was burning the candle at both ends.  She said start small – just call and make my appointment. It sounds so simple but putting myself first is not something that is easy for me. I needed the nudge. I called and made the appointment and I loved how they sent me a text confirmation reminder (on the day of the appointment). I went and had nothing but a wonderful experience. Everything at the spa was great – from the front desk associate and the massage therapist to the relaxing amenities offered such as a luxurious robe and a relaxing lounge to sip tea before my appointment. After my massage, I couldn’t believe how great I felt – relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated.

I realized that so many of us treat massage as something for a special occasion only. I don’t know what I was waiting for. If we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we be our best to others?  I’m going to make it a priority to get more massages. We are so fortunate to live in Santa Barbara, we need to enjoy great destinations like Evolutions and the incredible massage therapists they have working at the spa!”
