Established to address the disparity in access to high-quality medical and spa services in rural areas, Safahla brings luxury and medical expertise to Corning, NY. This endeavor fills a crucial gap, making self-care accessible and emphasizing the importance of well-being, regardless of location. Safahla’s approach goes beyond conventional medical spas by catering to the specific needs and challenges of the rural clientele, resonating deeply with the community it serves.

Since its inception, Safahla has engaged with the community in meaningful ways.

Media features in local outlets like The Leader and WENY have highlighted Dr. Vassell’s advocacy for wellness and the importance of practices such as using sunscreen.

One of the defining features of Safahla is its “Luxe for Less” promotions, which prioritize special packages and offers to make services more accessible.

At the core of Safahla’s services is a commitment to integrative and lifestyle medicine, forming the foundation for optimal wellness.

Safahla Medical’s registered dietitian nutritionist creates customized plans focusing on whole, anti-inflammatory foods to promote long-term health, while various massage techniques help manage pain, improve mobility, and reduce stress. Workshops and educational resources empower men and women to understand their bodies and make informed health choices.
