A Vital Touch

about us

Owner Eva Castro, opened A Vital Touch in 2002, with the intent of creating a beautiful place of relaxation and healing. You will feel as though you are on a tropical vacation. An environment of comfort and nurturing that will allow you to feel safe and cared for. We have 5 unique therapy rooms, Paradise, Vitality, Zen, Aloha and Mana, and a tranquil courtyard.

Your spa experience is very important to us. Our goal is to give each treatment with our caring touch, healing energy and to provide you with great customer service. We know the importance of relaxation, our beautiful rooms, peaceful music and attention to detail will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

A Vital Touch is located a few blocks away from the rocky cliffs and open ocean in beautiful Shell Beach, California. We encourage you to walk down the street after your treatment to look at the scenic beauty of the waves, seals, sea otters and pelicans. It is a great place to meditate, relax and feel the earth’s energy.


I became a massage therapist because I saw, firsthand the difference it makes in a person's quality of life. I wanted to help, learn, and become part of a healing journey for the community.  I trained in Kona, Hawaii and felt the healing energy of the island.  I wanted to carry that feeling with me in my work. I am also a licensed Esthetician and love making people look and feel fabulous. I feel so fortunate that I can go to work and be surrounded by the beauty and great energy of the spa and my staff. I have Scleroderma, a rare auto immune disease of the connective tissue. I want to help bring awareness and be a positive influence for those affected by it. I love hiking with friends, ocean sports and hanging out with my dog.
