Mayo Clinic adds services at Healthy Living Program

Donald Hensrud

Mayo Clinic plans to open a spa and weight-loss program at its downtown Rochester Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center.

"We are excited about taking wellness to the next level," Dr. Donald Hensrud, medical director of the Healthy Weight and Rejuvenate at Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program , said in a statement from the clinic. The program is scheduled to open this fall.

"Our expanded services embrace the idea of involving the entire body and mind. No matter your age or health needs, if you're looking to better manage stress, lose weight, get active or eat and cook healthfully, our program offers a diverse selection of wellness options for anyone seeking whole-body wellness,"

The healthy-weight program will include two-day, on-site sessions with weight-management and behavior-change experts, including guidance on patients' self-developed personal goals.

"Everyone has different obstacles to weight management, and we encourage guests to design their own individualized weight-loss program to address these obstacles," Hensrud said.


Mayo also plans a spa called "Rejuvenate" that will expand on its offerings of massage, acupuncture, meditation training and skin care. It will be located within Mayo's already-existing Healthy Living Program.

"We have created a true lifestyle-changing program that blends together evidence-based health and spa therapies to support people's wellness journeys," medical director Dr. Brent Bauer said in the Mayo statement. "Rejuvenate emphasizes the way that traditional spa services can enhance a person's overall well-being through the renewal of mind, body and spirit."

Mayo's announcement says Rejuvenate plans to offer "an array of massages, skin care (facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, injectables) and nail health such as manicures and pedicures." Mayo will not include gels or artificial nails.
