 Day & Boutique Spas in Santa Barbara

  • Amara Spa by the Sea located in the beachy town of Summerland, Amara is a delightful day spa in a cute cottage-style house. I love the private patio available to clients as well as the French doors in the treatment room. The microcurrent facial can treat fine lines and bring vibrancy to the skin.

  • Avia Spa - Offering spa and salon services and located downtown. The spa menu offers Eastern and Western massage and facial treatments. I indulged in the hot stone & chocolate scrub massage washed away with a warm, rainwater, 7-head shower.

  • Float Spa

  • Le Reve  - If you love lavender as much as I do, you’ll want to visit Le Reve (The Dream) for an aromatherapy massage or body wrap. Conveniently located downtown, this spa only uses Jurlique products, which have plant-based and herbal ingredients such as lavender.

Medical Spas

Medical spas offer medical treatments such as Botox, Restylane, acupuncture, laser hair removal, chemical peels and other procedures that require a nurse and/or licensed acupuncturist and doctor on staff. While the treatments are relaxing for the most part, the goal of each treatment is more clinical addressing such concerns as sunspots, permanent hair removal, wrinkles and scars. Many medical spas offer a combination of the medical and relaxation treatments such as massage. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology clinics are also offering these types of treatments.

  • Try something new – instead of a massage, opt for a body wrap or something else you haven’t tried on the spa menu!
