The medical technicians at Eastern Virginia Medical Spa know that losing weight is tricky, and keeping it off is even trickier. That's why they base their medically certified weight loss programs and treatments around equal parts science and support. From low-calorie diets and weight-loss counseling to B12 injections and appetite suppressants, treatments helps clients change their lifestyles while simultaneously shedding inches. While weight loss programs take effect, spa technicians also assist with other aesthetic matters. Body wraps countour bodies with the help of infrared heat, and their Smart Lipo system harnesses the power of ultrasonic energy, which busts up the cellular fat stores without the need for invasive treatments. In addition to helping patients lose weight, they also maintain appearances with laser hair removal sessions and brighten smiles with teeth whitening treatments powered by UV light.

At Sassy Salon & Spa, the staff transforms exteriors with styling products from brands such as Moroccanoil, TIGI, and Redken—as well as OPI polishes and Mirabella makeup. Stylists snip and style strands into flattering formations, while massage therapists spirit clients back to a moss-toned, private room for Swedish, deep-tissue, or sports massages. Hanging drum lights spill a warm glow over the gleaming hardwood floor as guests admire their increasingly beautiful reflections in the full-length, ornately framed mirrors. In the lobby, a stylish black-and-white armless chair sits in contrast against exposed brick walls.

Soothing Hands Body Therapy owner Tara has studied both Eastern and Western theories of massage, so it's fair to say she understands bodywork's potential benefits—improved circulation, lower blood pressure, and decreased stress. Her massages also target the lymphatic system, which defends the body against illness the way the Great Barrier Reef defends Australia against a dolphin D-day. Tara's three massage types—Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue—take place in 60- and 90-minute increments.
National board-certified massage therapist Bess Wood is quick to stress that her treatments aren't what you'd typically find in a spa. The focus at Therapeutic Arts isn't solely on relaxation; it's also on finding medically inspired solutions for chronic and acute pain. To that end, Bess specializes in a therapeutic massage that combines deep-tissue, trigger-point, and neuromuscular techniques to heal all kinds of injuries and ailments. The profound sense of relaxation that comes with each treatment is just another perk.
