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.

Evolutions Medical & Day Spa offers a Santa Barbara Massage Duet (Couples) Room

Massage has many benefits for the body and mind. A massage can alleviate pain, enhance the immune system, lessen anxiety and depression, promote circulation to vital organs including the skin, relieve migraine pain, relax sore or tight muscles, and help a person manage stress (and this is only the tip of the iceberg, there are many more benefits). The aftereffects of a massage are just as beneficial and include enhanced sleep quality, greater concentration and energy, clarity, and reduced fatigue. Many health experts are recommending massage on a regular basis as part of a person’s well-being routine. At Evolutions Medical & Day Spa, we fully support this idea and we have a way to make it easy for you to have a monthly massage in Santa Barbara!

Our VIP Membership program is designed to give you access to monthly massages. We offer two membership levels – Gold and Silver. Our Gold membership is for those who are interested in our Medical and Day Spa services. Our Silver membership is for those who are interested in Day Spa services.

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!”

Massage Benefits For Your Body and Mind

Offering massage in Santa Barbara is one of the day spa services that we are most excited about. We love to see clients coming out of their treatment in a blissful daze! Massage has the ability to induce relaxation by soothing away sore muscles and easing tension that can be held in many different areas of the body. In addition to immediately feeling better, massage can also have long lasting benefits such as boosting the immune system or enabling a deeper sleep.

Here are other body and mind benefits that massage can have:

  • An increase in blood flow encourages lymph drainage (pushing toxins out of cells) which can plump up skin and add vitality to a dull complexion.
  • Regular massages can help curb migraines or at least lessen the severity of them.
  • A massage as short as 15 minutes can give your brain a boost. A study showed that those who received a 15 minute massage completed a series of math questions more accurately and quickly than those that did not.
  • A massage can help PMS symptoms like bloating and mood swings.
  • Joint flexibility and range of motion is improved, which often leads to better posture.
  • A massage is always beneficial after an injury or for post-operative rehabilitation.

Benefits of a Monthly Facial in Santa Barbara at Evolutions

Evolutions Day Spa FacialsMany of our clients at Evolutions Medical & Day Spa are interested in keeping their skin healthy-looking and glowing. When asked how to do this, we normally recommend getting on an effective at-home skin care regimen (read Dr. Perkins’ home care regimen recommendations) and having a regularly scheduled facial. Peppered in here and there may be chemical peels or laser treatments, but the combination of physician-grade skin care products and monthly facials usually works well for most clients.

We came across an article that explains why monthly facials are important for maintaining your skin’s health and what a good esthetician can tell you about your skin.  We couldn’t have said it any better, so we are sharing the article with you (click here to read it).

Now that you are motivated to get on a facial “routine”, we’ve got the most affordable way for you to do so! By joining Evolutions’ VIP Membership program, you will earn points every month to be used for a facial (or a Santa Barbara massage or other spa services). Additional benefits include discounts on products and services, demo and training opportunities at a greatly reduced rate, and members-only events and raffles.

Let us help you put your best face forward! Contact Evolutions at 805-695-2189 to book a facial or learn more about our VIP Membership program.
