For the past couple of months, you may have been hearing and reading about ways you could have been getting ready for the holidays. We are advised on all matters, from how to manage the stress of multiple family members in the same place at the same time to how to revive our appearance so we love the way we look in all those holiday photos. Maybe you didn’t act on any of the pre-holiday suggestions that were floating around the internet. It’s not too late, though, and you may be in need of some blissful spa services now more than ever. We’ve got you covered. Though Aria Med Spa in Sterling, VA has over 100 services to choose from, we’re going to highlight three here that can help you sail into the new year.
Our massage therapists perform a variety of services, from hot stone massage to reflexology. People often consider massage a pampering treatment that can soothe sore muscles and tension. The benefits go far beyond that. For example, studies have shown that regular massage therapy for those with Seasonal Affective Disorder can improve mood and reset circadian rhythms, leading to better sleep and more energy. Research also supports the theory that massage can relieve stress in people with chronic pain, psychiatric patients, children with ongoing illness, cancer patients, patients with generalized anxiety disorder, the elderly, and, truly, every living organism with a nervous system.
Up your sauna game by adding some aromatherapy into the mix! An example of our multisensory sauna experience is the addition of oak and birch branches, which release their powerful essential oils into the air. The health benefits of birch essential oil are expansive and stem from its properties as a stimulant, tonic, detoxifier, antidepressant, disinfectant, analgesic, antirheumatic, antiarthritic, and more. These benefits enhance those that are present in sauna use on its own. Time in a sauna is well spent, as it helps eliminate toxins from the body, relaxes tight and sore muscles, opens the airway to improve respiratory function, and can even aid in the fight against cellulite.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Sometimes, the busy holiday season can leave us looking and feeling depleted. Our skin rejuvenation treatments can be as simple as an enlivening facial or as high-tech as the latest laser peel or radiofrequency treatment. Clients who want the most profound tissue regeneration can combine two or more of our advanced skin rejuvenation treatments. One example is Morpheus8, a microneedling treatment that is powered by radiofrequency. In one session, the tiny needles on the automated applicator send controlled radiofrequency into the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates significant collagen remodeling to restore firmer, tighter, smoother skin naturally. Schedule your visit today! If you have questions about any of our services, feel free to contact us at 703-444-2800.
