Since graduating summa cum laude from the University of Palermo School of Medicine in 1981, Dr. Lucia McNabb has gone on to study many aspects of obstetrics and gynecology. She completed ob-gyn residencies in both Italy and America before eventually becoming a clinical instructor at Vanderbilt University. She later focused on becoming part of a private gynecology practice, where she developed an interest in cosmetic surgery. Dr. McNabb went on to complete a fellowship in cosmeto-gynecology and now performs everything from vaginal rejuvenation to labiaplasty at Sorgente Center for Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery. Surgical techniques are not her only specialty, though. She also performs med spa treatments such as Botox, Pellev?, Dysport, Juvederm, and laser skin tightening.
On a quiet, brick-lined street on Capitol Hill, the main relaxation room at Creative Hands Massage is calm and quiet, as nimble fingers harmonize physical and emotional wellness within private chambers. Massage therapist Ailie Ham oversees skin and holistic wellness therapies, which begin with cups of hot tea to awaken the senses and give droopy pinkie fingers a lift. Aestheticians reach for the spa's signature skin tonics, and bodywork practitioners work in tandem with aromatic organic oils, warm and cool stones, or acupuncture needles to release tension and restore balance. Two blocks east in Union Station, emissaries of relaxation deliver pay-by-the-minute chair massages to prevent the stream of commuters and visitors from winding into a Gordian knot.

Like the staff-designed folk art and jewelry displayed in its boutique, the spa services at Studio 137 Salon are informed by a unique artistic vision. During each beauty treatment, staffers channel their aesthetic savvy through each client's personal style to craft an image that befits its wearer. Hairstylists' sensibilities overflow into everything from simple haircuts to full cut, style, color, and retexturizing overhauls. Aestheticians brush away blemishes and skin imperfections with the help of pharmaceutical-grade Pharmagel products, and mani-pedis complete head-to-toe beauty transformations with OPI polish. In addition, full-body massages soothe sore muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques that untie knots quicker than shouting "Fire!" during a game of Twister.
