During the traditional Thai yoga-bodywork massage, the signature offering at Malee Thai Massage and Body Work LLC, therapists incorporate guided stretches with focused pressure on energy meridians to loosen muscles and decompress joints. Some of the spa's treatments also incorporate hot stones and other Western methods, and customers can enjoy the warm herbal footbath that starts off every session. Inside, a space awash in warm colors and textiles woven with gleaming thread help make each visit as relaxing as napping on the marshmallow shelf in the supermarket.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and Botox and filler treatments.
Amidst the stark white and black décor of On Hair Salon, thoughtful stylists listen closely to their clients’ hairstyle ideas before they ever lift a pair of scissors. The team then tailors each cut, color, or style to fit the individual’s face and bone structure, sculpting each hairdo into a work of art. They can tame wild strands with Japanese straightening treatments and Brazilian blowouts, and add a pop of color with highlights. Rounding out the salon’s menu of services, Thai massages soothe tense muscles, while eyebrow tattooing redraws eyebrows lost by standing next to a sneezing dragon.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamal Yousefi's attention to aesthetic detail telegraphs his belief that plastic surgery is an art. Dr. Yousefi and the staff of Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center flatten fine lines and wrinkles with precise injections of Botox. He also fashions slimmer silhouettes with traditional and laser liposuction, redesigns fa?ades with procedures such as face-lifts, eyelid surgery, and chin and cheek implants, and augments bodies with abdominoplasty, tummy tucks, and breast reductions. The doctor even enjoys using his free time to hone his artistic skills by drawing, sculpting with clay, and removing the appendices of statues.
The team at Washington Bodywork Studio tackles pain with a twofold approach. The studio specializes in both chiropractic care and massage therapy, which staff use to design treatment regimens that address misaligned spines and muscular discomfort. Here, massage strokes are customized to suit the specific needs of each client: deep tissue techniques help root out lingering muscle pain, reflexology tends to trigger points not readily accessible to kneading hands, and chair massage helps ease the soreness experienced by those who are frequently sat upon.
