Natural Graces Health Therapies
& Day Spa Opens in Oceanside
By Gloria Clarke, R.N. Esth., CEO



My goal is helping individuals to help themselves with informed lifestyle choices promoting optimal health. I feel a gentle approach to health in general is most effective and well received by people who have an assortment of beliefs and practices.

Aromatherapy oils have been used for over 10,000 years by everyday people. With the advent of modern “Western” medicine, plant medicine has fallen out of mainstream use, relegated to native groups with strong historical practices that don’t have access to modern medicine.

As a nurse, I wanted nothing more than to heal others and that became the emphasis of my work. I realized, through observation and many years of holistic studies, that the skin will reveal the health and balance of internal organs, energy and blood. As the largest organ of the body it can be evaluated for diagnosis, and the effects of other internal processes as well as treatments.

Our treatments provide an energetic baseline change which can be summoned to enhance the relaxation response by inhaling the appropriate aromatherapy blend. Enhanced by Therapeutic Touch, acupressure and massage, aromatherapy provides a valuable tool for transformation.

Health therapies available at Natural Graces Day Spa include Acutron Therapy, a non-needle, electro-acupuncture system, wide-y used for treatment of acute and chronic pain. Patients have experienced improved cellular metabolism, stress reduction, collagen and elastin production and a youthful radiant appearance. Therapies also include Aromatherapy, Face, Body, Hand & Foot therapies, non-invasive medical treatments such as Micro Peel and Non-Surgical Face-Lift.

All therapies are performed by a registered nurse/licensed medical esthetician, and a registered manicurist/pedicurist, bringing a dimension of clinical expertise and healthcare focus to our holistic services.

Spa Manager, Tami Reeves, D.A., Esth., makes available the fun and informative Astro Spa, a Planetary Tour Guide that will enhance your spa experience with a specialized Astrological chart and reading. There are birthday, partner and rebirth charts available.
