A Little Bit of History About Soft Shell... 

Soft Shell was created in 1996 as a small natural-bath and skin care shop that carried a variety of gifts such as incense, candles, creams, salts, soaps, and aromatherapy.

Soft Shell has steadily expanded over the years to become a local spa getaway.  

Located only a block from the Petaluma River and part of historic downtown, we are a favorite spot amongst locals and visitors alike. 

We are conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants, cafes, theatres, antique stores, and clothing boutiques. 

Soft Shell has a total of seven treatment rooms and a large retail space.

Friends and family come here together regularly to receive relaxation and healing services, as well as to browse through our displays of make-up, aromatherapy, essential oils, bath and body products, jewelry, fashion accessories, and other gift items.

We are an award-winning day spa, most recently Petaluma Magazine's People's Choice Award 2014.


Our friendly and professionally-trained staff consists of certified massage therapists and practitioners, licensed estheticians, and certified make-up artists. We pride ourselves in excellent customer service and are here to provide you with the most comfortable, warm, and welcoming environment possible.

Soft Shell is centered in downtown Petaluma located in the historic Lan-Mart building amongst other shops and restaurants

We have street parking available in the front of our location on Kentucky Street.

We are within walking distance from two parking structures:  Keller Street near Petaluma Market and the Theatre District, off of D Street.  

 Gift certificates can be purchased during store-hours for any occasion or over the phone via credit card, which is helpful to out-of-towners.
