Spa treatments like chemical peels, body wraps, and massage have historically been perceived as luxuries; those little treats we give ourselves when we’ve burned the candle at both ends for too long. At Aria MediSpa in Sterling, VA, a “day at the spa” means much more than the immediate gratification of some TLC. Here, we discuss the various ways that spa treatments serve your well-being.
We have become so accustomed to the fast pace of modern life that few people realize just how much stress they are carrying on a day to day basis. When the effects of stress manifest, we may hide them from others and ourselves due to the perception of stress meaning we are weak. Did you know stress can be debilitating? The World Health Organization predicts that mental health conditions, including stress, will be a leading cause of disabilities by 2020 – that’s less than two years from now. Stress is prevalent among adults and children today and is a contributing factor to anxiety, lost work, and physical ailments.
Medical spas like Aria are in the business of helping people relax, if only for a few hours a week. Our wellness center offers multiple services that can relieve stress, from yoga (for children and adults) to float therapy to aromatherapy and more.
It’s no secret that we like to look good. When we look good, we feel good. We also propose that when we feel good, we feel great! Spa days that include beauty treatments, as well as stress-relieving therapies like massage or cryotherapy, rejuvenate the mind and body in ways that provide lasting wellness.
Our medical spa rounds out physical rejuvenation with body wraps and scrubs to invigorate the skin, facials to fight acne, laser treatments to reduce brown spots and signs of aging, injectables and more.
Adults of all ages express concern about stubborn fat. Weight loss is a goal that can be difficult to achieve on your own. Many people get so frustrated with their lack of results from diet and exercise that they either give up or turn to surgical procedures to shape their body. We take a different approach.
As a medical spa and wellness center, our team offers a multi-faceted approach to weight loss. For example, yoga provides an outlet for stress, which reduces fat-storing cortisol. Yoga is also quite the workout so tones the muscles all over the body. Our day-long and multiple-day wellness packages provide caring, personalized assistance with whole-body detoxification and weight loss.
