At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
Amidst the stark white and black décor of On Hair Salon, thoughtful stylists listen closely to their clients’ hairstyle ideas before they ever lift a pair of scissors. The team then tailors each cut, color, or style to fit the individual’s face and bone structure, sculpting each hairdo into a work of art. They can tame wild strands with Japanese straightening treatments and Brazilian blowouts, and add a pop of color with highlights. Rounding out the salon’s menu of services, Thai massages soothe tense muscles, while eyebrow tattooing redraws eyebrows lost by standing next to a sneezing dragon.
The team at Washington Bodywork Studio tackles pain with a twofold approach. The studio specializes in both chiropractic care and massage therapy, which staff use to design treatment regimens that address misaligned spines and muscular discomfort. Here, massage strokes are customized to suit the specific needs of each client: deep tissue techniques help root out lingering muscle pain, reflexology tends to trigger points not readily accessible to kneading hands, and chair massage helps ease the soreness experienced by those who are frequently sat upon.
During the traditional Thai yoga-bodywork massage, the signature offering at Malee Thai Massage & Bodywork, therapists incorporate guided stretches with focused pressure on energy meridians to loosen muscles and decompress joints. Some of the spa's treatments also incorporate hot stones and other Western methods, and customers can enjoy the warm herbal footbath that starts off every session. Inside, a space awash in warm colors and textiles woven with gleaming thread help make each visit as relaxing as napping on the marshmallow shelf in the supermarket.
Venus & Mars Spa serves as a retreat from stress, with a wide-ranging menu of beauty and wellness treatments to help its clients feel and look beautiful. Licensed stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists her perform everything from sun-kissed highlights and facials to foot detox treatments, body wraps, and full-body waxing services. The Manzilian wax, for example, removes unwanted hair from the nether regions and from a pet Manzilia. Of the massages you can choose, there's the muscle-melting deep-tissue massage as well as a therapeutic version for mothers-to-be.
