Baring Your Best Self with Surf City’s Newest Wellness Spa
There is much to be said for feeling divine. The informal definition there of course is lovely, exquisite, excellent, delightful.
I made the mistake of Googling “self-care” a couple weeks ago, after a particularly long week at work, and went down a decidedly un-divine rabbit hole of wellness treatments, essential oils, skin care, massage techniques, fitness tips, beauty regimens, and more. By the end, it was nine pm and I was more stressed out from the search than I’d been from my schedule.
As I was relaying the story to a friend the next day, I learned of Surf City’s newest wellness spa - Bare Bunny Aesthetics. Orange County is filled with busy working professionals and parents on the go - a concept with which Owner Rebecca “Becca” Pate is completely familiar. As an entrepreneurial mom of four boys, she understands firsthand the important of self-care and taking care of your overall health. While the OC is undoubtedly filled with medspas, estheticians, wellness centers and spas servicing aesthetics, there are precious few that view your body as an integrated long-term solution. That’s the mission of Bare Bunny Aesthetics at its newest spa in downtown Huntington Beach.
Becca and her team of professionals’ primary goal is to “take a look at your entire lifestyle, diet and skincare routine and create a custom plan to obtain maximum results.” Offering both Endermologie and EmSculpt (more on that in a minute), skin treatments and hydrafacials, wraps, hair scans and advanced, state-of-the-art med spa treatments (performed by Donna Richardson, M.D. and her experienced medical staff), Becca wants more women to make their body their priority.
Not a short-term goal either, the team at Bare Bunny is dedicated to long-term health, beauty, and happiness. Studies have shown that our intentional energies directed toward positive outcomes increases happiness, which in turn, can extend our life span. So starting from the first layer and working our way in makes sense to me. If all you’re looking for is a little glow now and then, a HydraFacial might be the thing for you. Proven to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, attack congested and enlarged pores, redness, irritation, and even skin texture, it will get you on your feet ready for another week.
The idea of putting my fresh face forward got me thinking about the areas of my body that have been stubborn for years. Delighting in her appearance and more importantly, the difference in how she feels, client Lauryn C. shares her personal Bare Bunny experience saying “I made my ten sessions a priority and everything followed suit. Everyone noticed the difference and I felt like I was a better wife, mother and woman for it. Making the time and putting myself first didn’t just help my exterior, but really allowed me to take inventory inside and out. I wish I had started sooner.”
“Lauryn was referred to us by a long-term client,”says Becca. “Like most mothers, she prioritized taking care of everyone, putting herself last. She felt stuck and in a rut. You can immediately tell she’s feeling and looking like she’s on top of her game. We love when we get mothers feeling good and looking even better.”
Shooting for the same look as you’d get after exercising for six months (or six years), Emsculpt is obviously not intended on taking the place of a healthy diet or exercise regimen, but its existence is certainly a marker on the new yardstick measuring results. And it’s technology is making quite the splash. No downtime, no pain. Non-invasive. Using high intensity electromagnetic energy to stimulate the body’s musculature, you’ll walk away with the results of having done 20,000 sit-ups, without the pain, frustration or recovery.
Fat cells still sticking around? Endermologie stimulates them through beta receptors to trigger their release. Smoothing the appearance of cellulite and increasing fluid storage keeps your skin looking young, and vibrant. Aesthetics are great, but even more importantly, Endermologie offers a host of health benefits, including increased circulation, lymphatic draining, pain management and inflammation reduction. More energy, a healthier appearance, less fat: all reasons to live a well rounded lifestyle. Even more reason to invest in the Internet’s favorite phrase on Google. Caring for my body will make it easier to care for my work, my family. And the idea of that feels divine, indeed.
