Med Spa of Virginia mitigates bodily tension, rejuvenates skin surfaces, and reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles with a variety of spa services. Guests sip on complimentary organic tea or lemon spa water in the relaxation room before receiving their selected spa service or top-secret mission. Sprawl out in one of five private treatment rooms as a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage relieves stress, increases circulation, and alleviates general fatigue and sore spots.
As a master colorist certified in Wella and ammonia-free Inoa products, Christy, the owner of Christy's Serenity Salon and Spa, has a keen eye for color and style. She works hard to keep up with the latest trends in hair and insists that her stylists do, too. In fact, the only way stylists can advance at the salon—from artistic to senior to guru, each with its own price point—is through taking continuing-education classes or by whispering “guru” three times into a mirror. Each service at Christy’s Serenity Salon and Spa begins with a thorough consultation and ends with product and care recommendations to help clients style hair at home.
Ladyburg is the inspiration of owner, master aesthetician, and aesthetic instructor Crystal Wellman. Within the cozy day-spa atmosphere, the crew at Ladyburg targets unsightly hair, age-indicators, and blemishes with clinical, results-oriented treatments performed with Image Skincare products and Radiancy Light & Heat Energy (LHE) technology. They help clients determine the most effective products for their skin by pairing initial consultations with a skin analysis, a tool that is useful in formulating custom treatments, such as clinical-grade facials, IPL treatments, chemical peels, and 3-D face paintings.
Ladyburg takes pride in keeping their services up-to-date with the latest in skincare technologies by continuously attending advanced-education seminars throughout the country. DermaSound, the spa's signature treatment, exfoliates up to 50% of clients' dead skin while boosting collagen and elastin production with ultrasonic and microcurrent energy. During advanced laser hair-reduction sessions, intense pulses of light and heat gently wash over unwanted bristles, breaking down follicles and leaving skin smoother than a seal-crooning Barry White. Traditional spa treatments, including waxing and mineral-makeup application, also make the list.
There is a box at the door of Renewal Massage. Inside, the worries of previous guests wilt, discarded. Each was symbolically dropped in and left behind, an act that began many clients’ journeys toward relaxation and balance. Past the box, within Renewal Massage, licensed therapists facilitate this voyage. They employ more than 10 modalities and more than five decades of combined experience to combat stress, confident that massage treatments are not an indulgence but a remedial step toward total wellness. Thus, they strive to evict tension from both muscles and thoughts, pushing their patrons toward a holistic vision of health.
Every therapist on staff boasts his or her own specialties. Christie Jones, for example, has mastered the classic Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone kneading styles and Will Jett focuses on helping his clients understand the importance of regular massage. Often, a massage will address specific or chronic concerns; pregnancy massages aim to relieve weight-bearing pains, and migraine massages target the facial muscles and shrinking sweatbands that can cause headaches.
Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's nurses beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma lasers.
