The Village of Arroyo Grande shines with bakeries, boutiques, bistros, and historic sites — a place that’s as relaxed as it is friendly. The strong culture of wellness and rejuvenation in Arroyo Grande may have something to do with that. Here, you’ll find plenty of stimulating and engaging activities, from walking the historic Swinging Bridge to listening to the player piano and throwing peanut shells on the floor at the Klondike Cafe. For a break from all the excitement, Arroyo Grande also offers bodywork like massage and aromatherapy. Licensed aestheticians perform facials, microdermabrasions, peels and more. Craniosacral therapy tackles deep-seated tension and injuries, and massage therapists soothe tired muscles in a multitude of modalities. These include Swedish and Thai massage, hot stone therapy, acupressure, trigger point therapy and lymphatic drainage. Book an appointment to conclude a day of shopping and dining with a restful, revitalizing massage, facial, or other spa treatment.
Discover Relaxation in Arroyo Grande
Ritual Skin & Body Care
This spa is tucked away into a quiet corner of the Arroyo Grande Village, beneath a canopy of trees. This is a locals’ haven, where folks come to shed their worries and take good care of themselves. Owned by Linda Ruberto, Ritual Skin & Body Care features craniosacral therapy. This style of bodywork focuses on the central nervous system more than the body’s musculature, relieving pain and tension, and promoting immunity. (In fact, many devoted craniosacral clients believe that the therapy increases the body’s natural ability to heal itself.) Craniosacral therapy is part of most treatments at Ritual Skin & Body Care, including all massage, including prenatal massage. While all massage treatments can include a 20-minute mini-facial, all facials can add on a craniosacral massage. Look for a variety of facial treatments, from 60 minutes for maintenance facials to 90 minutes for total bliss. Ritual Skin & Body Care also offers brow, Brazilian, and full-leg waxing. Make it a ritual, and let the relaxation begin.

Located in the Village of Arroyo Grande, Angels MedSpa began in Los Angeles when owner Elise Layzell R.N. brought “the war against wrinkles” to a large celebrity clientele. Today, Angels MedSpa operates in both locations, offering a menu of skin rejuvenation techniques and treatments. Angels MedSpa specializes in providing FDA-approved injectables, including Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Silk, Radiesse, Latisse, Dysport and Botox. Other treatments include keratin lash lifts, peels, facials, fibroblast skin-tightening and microdermabrasion. The spa also offers microneedling, a style of treatment that forms tiny pinpricks across the face to induce the production of collagen. The process can improve skin tone, decreasing acne, large pores, scars, stretch marks, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. Red light therapy can boost healing and collagen production in the skin, while blue light therapy fights acne by reducing facial bacteria. Hand treatments, foot treatments and even a specialty organic juice elixir can augment the MedSpa experience
