Owner - Maggie Seever Pollock
Maggie is the NEW OWNER of spa manzanita and member of our peaceful coastal community.
As I transition into my new role there is much to be grateful for, to learn, to explore and to cherish.
A series of “magic moments” led me to the Oregon coast, on a quest to nourish my soul and find joy in connection and community. I know so many others feel the same about this special place. My intention is that all who step through our door feel welcome when they walk in and serenity in body and spirit when they leave.
Below are words that spoke to me as I chose Manzanita for my next chapter.
I want to age like sea glass.
Smoothed by tides,
but not broken.
I want my hard edges to soften.
I want to ride the waves
and go with the flow.
I want to catch a wave
and let it carry me
to where I belong.
I want to be picked up
and held gently
by those who delight
in my well earned patina and
appreciate the changes I went
through to achieve that beauty.
I want to enjoy the journey
and always remember that if
you give the ocean something
breakable it will turn it into
I want to age like sea glass.

Barbara Rubin - Licensed Massage Therapist #5690
I bring a wealth of experience and a natural affinity for the art of massage and bodywork. My knowledge basis of Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Release, Acupressure, deep tissue massage and more informs the fluid, integrated style I have developed.

Sam Michael - Reiki Master/ Teacher

Exhale while counting to 4 seconds, hold that for 4 seconds, inhale fully to 4 seconds, hold that for 4 seconds, do this a few times with your eyes gently closed. Notice that your shoulders are dropped, your jaw isn’t clenched, and things feel better, even just in this moment.
I have been caring for others all of my life, and have been blessed, and empowered to use my gifts to encourage others on their journey, this journey that is our life. It isn’t often that we carve out the time to relax, to breathe, to sit and find ourselves again. You do know what you want, to breathe easier for a moment. To step back to gain some clarity. You have used all of your spoons for the foreseeable future, and you need an intuitively guided self-reboot. This is what I GET to do, and share with You! Reach out today so we can get you closer to YOU, YOU that wins, loves yourself, and thrives.. on the daily!
When I am not sharing these gifts with beautiful humans, I may be found at the beach…recharging, meditating, creating amazing aromatherapy things, or (safely) traveling with my Partner to the awe-inspiring treasures of our mother earth.

From Our Clients
From the moment you walk through the door, you know this place is special with its calming and peaceful vibe. Maggie, the owner, was fabulous. We were three friends on a girl’s trip and this was one of our favorite experiences. Each of us thought our massage was exactly what we needed and asked for. I can’t recommend this spa highly enough. Just go—you deserve it and you won’t regret it.
