Vichy Shower & Infrared Sauna

At Elle Aesthetic Arts & Plastic Surgery, we are focused on providing patients from Ashburn, Loudoun County, and throughout Northern Virginia (NOVA) with a range of treatments and services to improve their health. We offer a variety of hydrotherapy treatments including vichy shower and infrared sauna that are designed to relieve stress, relax muscle tension, boost the immune system, stimulate cellular repair and promote a sense of wellbeing.

Vichy Shower

A Vichy shower is a type of hydrotherapy that involves being sprayed with warm water while lying on a table. The shower is typically provided by a system of shower heads that are mounted on the ceiling above the massage table, and the water is typically heated to a warm temperature of around 35 to 40 °C (95 to 104°F). The water is pressure-regulated and falls in a gentle, rain-like manner from the shower heads.

The Vichy shower is typically used in conjunction with other spa treatments, such as massage or body wraps. It can also be used for its therapeutic benefits as it can help to:

  • Improve circulation
  • Aid in muscle relaxation
  • Improve the skin’s texture and appearance
  • Relieve stress
  • Stimulate the lymphatic system
  • Promote a sense of overall well-being.

Infrared Sauna

Relax and warm up in our state-of-the-art heat generated sauna that encourages detoxifying perspiration, relief from aches and pains, and deep relaxation.

An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to release radiant heat, rather than heating the air like a traditional sauna. The heat energy warms the body directly, raising the core temperature and causing a gentle, deep sweat. The temperatures in infrared saunas are generally lower than traditional saunas, typically around 120-140°F (48-60°C), and can be tolerated for longer periods of time.

Infrared saunas are increasingly seen as a holistic health treatment, with a wide range of potential benefits such as:

  • Detoxifying the body
  • Improving cardiovascular health
  • Decreasing muscle and joint pain
  • Improving skin tone
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Improving weight loss
