Blueberry Gardens' seasoned instructors cultivate whole-body health with a schedule of multi-level classes inspired by ParaYoga, Anusara, and body-balance methods. A composite of breath and movement, ParaYoga challenges students to prod the body's upper limits of flexibility and strength through vigorous postures such as downward dog, dolphin plank, and recumbent Andrew Carnegie. Fueled by an uplifting philosophy, Anusara yoga encourages students to honor their differences, limitations, and talents, and body-balance yoga integrates the body and mind through asanas inspired by Protean animorphs. Each 90-minute class includes mats and props and, if missed, can be substituted in any of the other summer sessions.

After earning the 2008 S. Roger Horchow Jefferson Award for public service, Edward Jagen opened Michaela's Grotto to provide holistic interventions that help visitors take responsibility for their health and emotional well-being. Jagen's resume reads like the definition of "Renaissance man": holder of a PhD in theology, a master magician, and a former Major Crimes Special Investigator for the Washington D.C. Police. While combating organized crime against mailboxes on the force, Jagen honed his abilities to read people, a skill he combines with a mode of communication called neuro-linguistic reasoning to help his patients recognize patterns in their thoughts and actions. The center is co-owned by massage therapist and medical intuitive Sophia West, who prefers to work in conjunction with her clients' physicians to pick up where Western medicine has proved ineffective. A nutritionist and a hypnotherapist round out the staff and reinforce the center's emphasis on the interconnectedness of mental and physical health.

The heart of the center is an outdoor labyrinth built to channel a positive energy through passageways that burst forth with flowering plants and choruses of Muppets in the summer. Meditation gardens stretch out beyond the labyrinth in a loose network of tranquil pools, sunlit walks, and a gazebo overlooking the center's medieval-castle-style architecture. Inside, a 375-foot sweat lodge and a warm mineral pool soothe visitors with heat, and a shop filled with aromatherapy products and crystals enables them to take home healing tokens of their journey.

At Jamachi Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa, a diverse team of practitioners helps beautify clients from head to toenail. At the helm is plastic surgeon Dr. Emeka Onyewu, who has performed thousands of procedures—with a specialty in breast surgeries and liposuction—earning him a level of expertise that's been shared on news programs such as NBC 4. He's joined by Dr. Adaku Onukogu, a board-certified internist who administers flu shots and assists patients with managing their weight, overall health, and well-being. 

Nail technicians, massage therapists, and aestheticians head up Jamachi's spa services, which are performed at mani-pedi stations or in treatment rooms. Aesthetician Trina McIntosh draws upon postgraduate training at the International Dermal Institute when revivifying faces with custom blends of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. April Parnell softens hands and feet with such specialty ingredients as champagne, olive oil, and happy unicorn tears during mani-pedis, and massage therapists Nmaku Onyewu and Joel Price lure stress out of bodies with customized techniques.

Maisie Dunbar feels that she was born to be an artist, though the human body is her canvas and her palette is made up not of paint, but of makeup and quality skincare products. Within her artist's studio, Maisie Dunbar Spa Lounge, she and her staff take a holistic, nurturing approach to everything they do—whether they are smoothing rough skin, massaging stressed muscles, or coating nails in OPI polish. Maisie’s dedication to the beauty industry has earned her numerous celebrity clients over the years as well as appearances at the Grammys and features in O, The Oprah Magazine and the Washington Post, according to the Silver Spring Patch.

Although Maisie’s toolbox contains trusted, high-end products from Essie and Moroccanoil, her continuing search for quality led her one step further than most spa owners to create her own makeup line—BluffaJo Cosmetics. These oil-free, mineral-based products allow skin to breathe normally while still managing to protect it from airborne pollutants and abrasive AM radio waves.

The infrared saunas at Silver Spring Hair Scalp & Wellness Clinic harness naturally occurring far-infrared radiant heat to help clients shed excess water weight and detoxify their bodies in 20-minute sauna sessions. During each session, gentle warmth raises clients' core body temperatures to encourage a healthy sweat, helping rid the body of environmental toxins, heavy metals, and lost sea monkeys. The heat boosts the circulatory and lymphatic systems and accelerates the body's metabolism, which can dissolve fat cells and flush them away to create trimmer profiles. Muscle tension from overexertion, minor injury, or arthritis can melt away during restful sauna sessions as oxygen and blood flow increase in afflicted areas. After a series of treatments, clients can feel slimmer, enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing, and boil water with a simple smoldering touch.

Super Spa's amiable nail pros refine phalanges with long-lasting gel manicures and relaxing pedicures. During the one-hour appointment, staff members shape nails and cuticles before fortifying finger fronts with the Axxium gel system by OPI, which lasts chip-free for up to 14 days and then soaks off in minutes. Digits can gleam with vivid blues and deep magentas or attract flower bushes by dressing in rosy hues. Feet get in on the pampering during a soothing pedicure that exfoliates and softens skin before technicians daub nail beds with a coat of shiny polish, adding a splash of color to open-toed heels or plastic-wrap socks.
