For six years, Body Bliss's therapists traveled around Maryland, Virginia, and the District, bringing relaxation to its clients as a mobile massage-therapy company. Now with a permanent location, the massage center quells tension with the gliding strokes of Swedish massage and firmer deep-tissue modalities to treat the specific needs of athletes or statues that can't move until their museum closes. Nationally certified massage therapist Reginald A. Taylor guides the team of experienced massage therapists, who tailor treatments to root out the sources of each client's pain.
Althea Medspa is named for the althea flower, or hibiscus, which is well known for its beauty and healing properties. Inside cozy, private rooms, Althea's team upholds the transformative spirit of this flower when boosting clients’ beauty with professional laser services, cosmetic injections, and infrared therapy. A professional designer was hired to outfit Althea Medspa with a tranquil atmosphere, harnessing the calming practices of feng shui and a fountain to soothe visitors and vacationing flying fish.
This bright and airy neighborhood salon offers a nice change of pace from some of the snootier salons located down Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. Guven Salon and Spa in Glover Park is filled with personable stylists who work on both men’s and women’s tresses from the comfort of one large, open room, while guests themselves relax in seriously stylish white salon chairs. Other services that go beyond the hair on your head include Keratin treatments, a skin care consultant and a waxing bed for old-school-style waxing; they’ll wax just about everything, from the eyebrows on down. For those who are daunted by the extent of waxing services, the salon does have eyebrow threading, so if you need to lose the hair up there, that’s another option.
The trained staff at The Skinny Spa helps people lose weight through a combination of advanced technology, tried and tested know-how. By pairing detox sessions with balanced nutrition recommendations, they aim to melt away pounds while simultaneously improving cardiovascular health. The infrared saunas and body wraps used in their treatments don't simply get sweat glands pumping; their soothing heat is known to ease aches, arthritis, or sore muscles caused by long hours at the office and stress.
Within its modern confines, Atlas Bodyworks helps contour bodies and reduce cellulite with the power of its specialty, far-infrared heat. During each 50-minute session, this specialized energy streams into the body from silicone treatment pads swaddled around the hips, stomach, and thighs in order to increase metabolism, burn calories, and melt appendixes made of chocolate.
The staff at Help For Health boosts clients' self confidence and natural beauty with a roster of detoxifying services that promote weight loss and well-being.

All treatments are natural and sustainable and come accompanied with a ton of information to keep clients in the know about the services and their own body's natural responses.
