Studies show that a high percentage of Americans consider themselves overweight, and an even higher percentage believe they are being chased by The Frankenstein. Alter self-perceptions with today's Groupon: for $85, you get one VelaShape cellulite treatment on one area of the body at White Tea Med Spa in Chelsea (a $295 value).

White Tea Med Spa bolsters bodies with a combination of cutting-edge med-spa treatments and the bygone graces of an English tea house. With the spa's VelaShape treatments, White Tea's skin sculptors chisel away sneaky cellulite from subsurface hiding places beneath stomachs, hips, and the stairs leading to inner thighs. During the session, which lasts around 30 minutes depending on the area of treatment, a skilled technician applies a concentrated stream of high-powered heat to the affected area, using a combination of infrared and radiofrequency energy to raise the temperature through multiple layers of skin, fat, and android plating. After rendering fat cells malleable with the wand's balmy blasts, the technician smoothes out subdermal dents and dings with a combination of vacuum pressure and rolling massage, leaving flesh free of ripples, divots, and strut-destroying potholes.

All of White Tea's rejuvenating treatments take place in the restive comforts of its tea-house-inspired Chelsea atelier. While waiting to reform wayward shapes and figures, parched patrons can sup on a sippable selection of teas, get Zen in the calm lounge, or settle forum disputes on which observational astronomist has the most swagger with White Tea's complimentary WiFi.

White Tea Med Spa

“My stomach actually grumbled several times during the treatment,” a Time Out New York reporter confessed after indulging in the “whirl of euphoric bliss” that is the Strawberry Sweet Cheeks facial. There’s little cause for embarrassment if guests’ stomachs interrupt—using ingredients including poppy seeds, mango, and lime (all blended by Éminence), the aestheticians at White Tea Med Spa are well aware of their appetite-inducing properties. Each treatment on the boutique spa's menu is designed to mimic the healing, relaxing effects of white tea without the time and expense of filling a bathtub with it, and after each treatment, guests are rewarded for their stomach’s patience with a cup of white tea itself served in an English-style tea house.

In addition to nine types of facials, the spa offers higher-tech treatments, such as VelaShape body-contouring procedures. Perched on the border between Chelsea and the West Village, White Tea has often found itself at the forefront of beauty trends—its new services have been tested and demonstrated in the pages of OK! Weekly and The Tyra Banks Show, among other outlets.

This was one of the best facials I have ever received. They are not kidding when they say how incredible the aromas from the tea treatments actually are. My experience with staff was warm and extremely welcoming I will absolutely be using their services again.
