Hello, my name is Audrey Swanson and I am the owner of Zenspa. I began my career as an Esthetician in 1991. Skin care began as a hobby for me as a teenager, blending my own products and testing them out on friends and family. What started out as a hobby became my passion and my passion turned into a lifelong career.
Growing up in SB, I attended a local, highly recognized school of Esthetics, Lu Ross Academy. Immediately following my graduation and State Board exams, I decided to continue with post graduate education studying with some of the top educators in skin care and well being; The International Dermal Institute, Image SkinCare, Dr Murad, Diamond Way Ayurveda, Advanced Peel Courses, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Advanced Skin Care Techniques, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Restorative Yoga Teacher Training, etc… totaling over 2500 hours in additional training, setting me up to be one of the top estheticians in my field.

Several years later, I moved to Orange County to run the Esthetics Department of the largest spa in the area and in 2000 I moved to Corona, CA where I opened my first day spa under the name, ZenSpa, which I successfully ran for over seven years. In 2007, I made the decision to move back to Santa Barbara to embark once again on a new adventure, back home, where it all began……in Santa Barbara.
So I continue my passion, my dream, back home. A dream to create a Spa that is welcoming, a place of comfort, a place to exhale. ZenSpa is just that to me. An environment in which each person who comes in can be truly pampered inside and out. Skin care is my passion, nurturing is my gift. I hope you take the time to exhale and give back to yourself what you give to so many. Come in, I am here for you.
