Spa Mantra “I didn’t open this place four years ago to become a millionaire,” says Bella Maiya Day Spa owner Kiara Picucci. “I wanted to provide excellent services without breaking anyone’s bank account.”
Aura Bella Maiya feels friendly and inviting, perhaps because it’s in a charming house. Located on the edge of Briarcliff Manor village, the bi-level space is dedicated to different treatment rooms and sitting areas.
Tech Check Dermaplaning, microneedling to stimulate collagen production, LED light therapy to fight acne, advanced chemical peels — Bella Maiya has it all. “Our aestheticians continue with their training,” says Picucci, “which enables us to keep up with the industry.” The spa even invites in local plastic surgeon Christian Guzman every few months for an evening of Botox and fillers, she adds.
About Face Anti-aging is taken seriously here, with an emphasis on plumping up the skin with nutrients and massaging the face, to release any tension and fatigue that might be contributing to an older-looking appearance, Picucci explains.
The Rub “Everyone loves a massage,” says Picucci of her spa’s most popular treatments. Choices include the Bella Massage, a 60-minute Swedish rubdown, and the 30-minute Massage-on-the-Go, to quickly loosen up nagging tension centers, such as the neck, back, and shoulders.
Specials Menu Bella Maiya is spa-party central — options for girls include the Bella Princess, the Teen Queen, and Diva Glam packages, each including age-appropriate treatments, balloons, samples, and (for the younger girls) a craft project.
