Meeting Your Kneads means meeting clients on their front doorsteps. The mobile massage service—helmed by a certified massage therapist—brings Swedish, hot-stone, prenatal, chair, and deep-tissue massage directly to homes. The business also has a home base from which it slings a slew of other services.
Aesthetics by Connie is helmed by a licensed clinical aesthetician with a background in biochemistry. For more than 13 years, Connie has treated clients with facial treatments, peels, and microdermabrasion. In her services—which also include oxygen infusions and eyelash extensions—she uses pharmaceutical-grade products from brands such as Dermalogica.
From hair design to nailcare, the staff at Amazing Grace Beauty Salon elevate all expressions of beauty. Take, for instance, the anti-aging facial: skincare specialists lather each complexion with cleansers in order to draw out a youthful glow and minimize wrinkles. In the lively salon area, hairstylists cut and shape hair, and nail technicians give hands and feet their undivided attention as they clean, groom, and polish nails. Meanwhile, massage therapists apply Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to loosen muscles and relieve stress.
A team of trained technicians, master aestheticians, and massage therapists pampers and beautifies bodies in a bright, contemporary salon and tranquil treatment rooms awash in soothing earth tones. Staff guide guests through the spa to allay fine lines and age spots in facials with Guinot Paris and nutrient-rich Dermalogica products, oust stress with relaxing massages, detoxify skin with thermal mud wraps, and pamper nails with a list of nail services. Three levels of hairstylists transform manes with professional products from Moroccanoil, Wella, and Bumble and bumble, crafting looks as sculpted as the bar soap in Michelangelo's shower. The generous crew has also raised money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure by styling clients with pink hair extensions.
Maryam Rahimi's passion for nature—and more specifically, plants—shines through in her skincare treatments, which often incorporate vegan extracts and botanicals. The medical aesthetician and president of Lily Dermal Care uses these natural ingredients to great effect, clearing away acne, hyperpigmentation, and dried-out warpaint during facials and peels. Of course, it helps that she can draw on 15 years of experience in the beauty industry to craft her healthy, holistic remedies.
During her 29-year tenure, Dr. Sadhna N. Singh has refined her skills as an obstetrician and gynecologist. She recently began performing cosmetic procedures, and her service list has expanded to include laser hair removal using a Lumenis LightSheer Duet, a large-spot-sized laser assisted by a vacuum that minimizes pain and eliminates the need for anethesia. Laser Institute at Fairfax is a sister organization of Parma Spa in Tysons.
