According to Skin Inc. (July 2019), WELLNESS is the Number 0ne Buzz word in the entire Spa world. They contend that, historically, medical services within the spa industry has been associated with quick solutions rather than a lasting change. "In recent years, the mantra of wellness has become a key part of the industry. Today, it's not enough to simply look good, you must also be healthy, so a holistic approach to self-care has become a part of many esthetic regimens."
Spa 131 is in the process of re-branding to become known as 131 Wellness Spa. We have been providing wellness services since the beginning and now we need to differentiate ourselves from the pack. We have found that there are folks calling themselves a "spa" all over. It seems if a hair salon has an empty room, they bring in an Esthetician or Massage Therapist and suddenly they are a Salon & SPA. That is not us and has never been us. Spa 131 has always catered to the entire person -- mind, body and spirit. Our new name will tell a more complete story.
Skin Inc continues to say, "Wellness is a concept. Generally speaking, there is a bit of a stigma attached to the "quick fix" solutions for esthetic issues, so many practices have begun offering more natural, organic solutions and encourage more comprehensive views of patients' overall health. After all, no medical spa wants to be featured as part of an expose on botched esthetic procedures."
We can agree that a healthy body helps contribute to a complete healthy mind and overall outlook.
Alan Durken, M.D. is a plastic surgeon @ Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery and MedSpa. He says, "Wellness is now a core concept in modern living. Self-care is a needed component for becoming your best self, and non-invasive, but meaningful treatments for fundamental relaxation, detoxification and contemplation are needed."
In that effort, we have always offered an affordable monthly membership that can suit most everyones budget. For a low monthly fee of $69, Guest's can receive a stress reducing massage or relaxing, refreshing facial -- or many sign up for both services. Add ons are available and there is also a plan for monthly waxing and lash lifts.
I challenge you to come for one visit and see our commitment to you and your health.
