Le Reve Needs Your Help

Le Reve Spa needs your help Santa Barbara!

Le Reve has been Nominated

Le Reve has been nominated for two categories, Best Day Spa and Best Place to get a Facial in Santa Barbara in the Independent Best of Reader’s Poll for 2017. Each year the Independent hosts a Reader’s Poll for the ‘Best Of’ Santa Barbara businesses. It is a wonderful way to praise those businesses who work to provide wonderful services and/or products to our community throughout the year. We are honored to be nominated.

Santa Barbara Business

     Anyone who lives in or has lived in Santa Barbara knows that we are blessed with many fabulous small businesses who make up this awesome city. This is one of the first things that I noticed when I moved to Santa Barbara in the 90’s. I remember being able to walk all of State Street in the downtown area and coming across a plethora of unique shops and restaurants. I remember being proud to recommend to visitors some of these establishments and felt fortunate to have access to these marvelous places unique only to Santa Barbara. Being able to participate in providing Santa Barbara the unique spa experience of our knowledgable and experienced staff along with our wonderful organic skin care is something that I feel blessed to do.

Le Reve is Honored

     Over time things evolve and change and Santa Barbara along with it’s State Street is no exception. While some of our wonderful unique places remain others have gone and each years we welcome more. It is because of this that we are so very proud to continue too be nominated for such recognition within our community. While Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique is honored to have been nominated again in this year’s Reader’s Poll for these two categories we still need your help to win!

Organic 30 SPF Sunblock Facestick

Organic 30 SPF Sunblock Facestick

Sea & Summit Facestick

SPF 30

Made from 6 Unrefined Raw Organic ingredients you can pronounce

Our Organic SPF 30 Sunblock Facestick by Sea and Summit was designed by a local lifeguard. He grew tired of the chemical sunscreens that were damaging to the environment and body. He created this facestick along with the help of experience chemists with ease of use and eco-friendly consciousness in mind. After a few years the Sea & Summit SPF 30 Facestick was born. This easy to use organic 30 SPF sunblock facestick is a great travel sunblock! The bamboo lid holds nicely in any travel bag and the easy to apply sun protection is gentle on skin making a fabulous choice for little ones.

Why doesn’t it say “waterproof” or an amount of minutes for water resistance?

Because it’s now illegal to label any sunscreen as “waterproof” and water resistance testing is not applicable to real world usage. Do you think sitting in a fresh water bath is the same as swimming in a pool or the ocean? We Lifeguards don’t either! So we decided our real world testing will develop a reputation on its’ own of being an awesome formula that’s super water resistant. So, Yes, it’s excellent for water sports!

Translucent Sun Protection
Shade #1

Translucent Sun Protection Santa Barbara - Le Reve Spa ONLY FOUR INGREDIENTS:  
Micronized Titanium Dioxide, a non-chemical sun protection
 
Bismuth Oxychloride, an anti-inflammatory
 
Zinc Oxide, an anti-inflammatory

Translucent Sun Protection - Shade 2 - Le Reve Spa
Shade #2
 

LBD Translucent Sun Protection is offered for both men and women.

This sun protection is all natural, pure translucent mineral formula.  

It lasts all day without re-application and provides complete protection from all UVA/UVB infrared rays. It does not contain any FD&C dyes, oils, fragrance, alcohol, parabens, cornstarch or other chemicals. Soothing and calming, LBD-Women can be used on rash-prone skin, eczema, allergy-prone skin (with a near-zero allergy rate) and sensitive skin. This mineral sun protection keeps the skin naturally cool (even when sitting in the sun) and reduces perspiration, doesn’t irritate like chemical sunscreens.

Shade #3
 

Micronized titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide are the key. These minerals are naturally occurring and do not clog pores or dry out the skin. It works quite remarkably. Basically, it allows light to pass through the visible ray region (light that is needed for healthy development of skin) while intercepting the ultraviolet rays.  Micronized titanium dioxide and Zinc Oxide guard against the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays, yet gives the skin a natural looking finish. Research shows micronized titanium dioxide and zinc oxide provide a natural barrier to UVA and UVB radiation without irritation, burning or stinging.

Deep Tissue Massage – Santa Barbara

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep-Tissue-le reve spa What you should know before booking a deep tissue massage

Deep Tissue Massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is also not uncommon for receivers of Deep Tissue Massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two.

deep tissue massage - le reve spaDeep tissue work varies greatly. What one calls deep tissue another will call light. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling. How does deep tissue massage work? When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesion to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. Will deep tissue massage hurt? At certain points during the massage, most people find there is usually some discomfort and pain. It is important to tell the massage therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range. There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. The massage therapist may recommend applying ice to the area after the massage.
 What conditions is deep tissue massage used for? Unlike classic massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as:
  • Chronic pain limited mobility
  • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
  • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Postural problems
  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle tension or spasm
According to the August 2005 issue of Consumer Reports magazine, 34,000 people ranked deep tissue massage more effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain than physical therapy, exercise, prescription medications, chiropractic, acupuncture, diet, glucosamine, and over-the-counter drugs. Deep tissue massage also received a top ranking for fibromyalgia pain. People often notice improved range of motion immediately after a deep tissue massage.
I feel so privileged to have such a caring and talented staff at Le Reve. Our Massage Therapist are absolutely exceptional. So whether you are needing a relaxing or a deeper more therapeutic type of massage Le Reve has you covered. Be sure to check out our tweets because every week I tweet a special Spa Offering and you could get a 1 1/2 hour massage for the price of a 1hour.
See you at the spa!
