The Benefits of a Thanksgiving Massage at Qui Si Bella
Some of the services available at Santa Barbara’s most comprehensive day spa include manicures and pedicures, holistic treatments, massages, wraps, anti-aging facials, body detox programs, alternative medicine and hair loss treatment. The one thing that interests most of our clients, though, is massage therapy. Here are just a few of the many benefits of a relaxing massage:
- Swedish Massage: The Mayo Clinic states that this is a gentle form of massage which uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
- Improved Circulation: Massage therapy involves pressure which stimulates the movement of blood through your body, and ultimately improves body functions.
- Hot Stone Massage: In this type of treatment, WebMD reveals that the therapist places warmed stones on certain areas of the body, similar to what an acupuncture specialist does with acupressure points. The stones may be used as massage tools or be temporarily left in place. Used along with other massage techniques, hot stones can be quite soothing and relaxing as they function to transmit heat deep into the body.
- Posture Relief: More people have jobs that involve long periods of sitting without stretching. This puts strain on the shoulders, back and upper leg areas. Massage can alleviate the tension and pressure resulting from these periods of inactivity, and relieve any associated pain.
- Aids in Healing: People who have experienced some form of injury due to sports, an auto accident, surgery, or over-exertion often finding healing relief in the art of massage. It helps to stimulate the rebuilding of muscle strength and improves range of motion.
- Reflexology: WebMD states that reflexology uses hand, thumb, and finger techniques to stimulate certain areas of the hands and feet which are believed to correspond to different parts of the body, in order to promote health and well-being.
The Mayo Clinic notes that additional research is ongoing to confirm whether massage may also be helpful for anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, stress-induced insomnia, and temporomandibular joint pain.

Q: What is an Ayurvedic Massage?
A: This is literally a “Science of Life” massage which uses Ayurvedic herbs and oils designed to help balance the mind, body and spirit.
Q: Can you explain Shirodhara as it relates to the Ayurvedic Ritual:
A: In this experience an Ayurvedic expert directs a steady stream of warm oil onto the forehead to stimulate the pituitary gland or “third eye.” This will rest and calm the mind, stimulate the third eye and crown chakras, awaken intuition and inner wisdom, help mental focus, and relieve stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia through natural serotonin, dopamine and melatonin production.
Q: What is the Indian Ayurvedic Scalp Massage?
A: This holistic treatment uses acupressure massage to relieve aches, pains, and tension in your neck, back, and shoulders which stimulates the flow of blood, lymphs, and oxygen in your upper body, thereby clearing your sinuses and relieving stress. It also has benefits for reliving tension headaches and eye strain.
Q: Do you offer a couples’ massage?
A: We do! Our soothing couples massage is a great way to spend some quality time together before the holiday season rush begins.
