It can be difficult to get everyone to the salon for a girls' day. That's why Essentials Soul-on LLC brings the salon day to you. Its Soul'on on Wheels truck is a traveling party venue. The exterior may look like an RV, but the interior evokes a beauty parlor with its salon chairs, mirrors, and soft pinks and purples. Plan a party in the traveling salon, and you can get most of the same hair and nail services available at the brick-and-mortar site, including mani-pedis, lash extensions, and sew-in weaves.
Pomegranate, green tea, and white grape; cocoa butter and avocado oil; coconut oil and mango. These may sound like ingredients for a sweet perfume, but they're also the components of refreshing massages at natUreal Spa. The healing effects of the natural ingredients prove as potent as their aroma. Though body wraps rely upon decidedly less aromatic ingredients—namely, mud—they also help soothe and heal the body, as do calming pedicures and facials.
At Capital Health Chiropractic in Suitland—along with the Capital Health and Wellness Center location in McLean—Dr. Rehman Mirza and his team combine chiropractic and wellness expertise to wipe out pain naturally, without the use of drugs or surgery. Through chiropractic care, nutritional counseling, and even physiotherapy, they treat a vast spectrum of conditions ranging from neck pain and migraines to restless sleep and carpal tunnel.
Heels and toes deliver soothing pressure during the East Asian ashiatsu deep-tissue massages at Balanced Body Massage Group. Supported by overhead bars and assisted by the heavy hands of gravity, therapists glide their firm soles slowly over tense backs. A fusion of Swedish and compression techniques helps pump fresh blood throughout the body, iron out knots, and send stress to military reform schools. Oil infuses the uppermost layers of skin with rich moisture, and trigger-point therapy routs chronic pain from hideouts in the soft tissue. Refreshed limbs leave the table feeling as long and loose as the Man with No Name's poncho.

Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That’s why acupuncturist Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco, the center's holistic esthetician, blends years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. She reads each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy also helps clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.
Those interested in acupuncture may enlist in Kirsten Jacob, a trained herbalist who received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Han University of Traditional Medicine in Tucson, Az. In addition to specializing in facial-rejuvenation acupuncture treatments, she also possess a background in pediatric respiratory therapy as well as general family treatment. Her specialities include pediatric and family acupuncture, behavioral/learning issues, and stress reduction and internal medicine. Kirsten incorporates classical Chinese botanical therapy into her work, which includes tui na–or Chinese medical/therapeutic massage–cupping, and moxa. When she is not helping her clients attain inner peace through eastern healing techniques, she tends to her kids while indulging in reading, writing, and traveling.
