At Herbal Infusion, Marilyn Hockaday-Bey champions simple, holistic solutions for personal care. True to its name, the health center offers an extensive line of herbal supplements to aid in everything from digestion to flagging energy from continually trying to spell “supplement.” But it’s also a spa-like retreat, working to heal bodies and minds with rejuvenating services. Marilyn aims to evict toxins from clients’ bodies through colon-hydrotherapy sessions, ionic footbaths, and Egyptian body wraps fortified with natural ingredients. Massage therapists soothe stressed muscles with Swedish, hot stone, or pre-natal sessions, while reiki specialists manipulate energies to promote wellness.
With five indoor tennis courts, a group exercise studio, and a fully equipped training room, Mount Vernon Athletic Club has kept hearts racing and muscles burning for 40 years. The tennis program aims to improve the skills of players of all ages by hosting clinics and seminars on correct stroke form and how to grow your own tennis-ball garden.
Personal trainers inhabit the training studio, creating regimens customized to their clients' physical prowess, while Fitness On Demand offers a library of group fitness classes. Rounding out the club's services, the wellness spa keeps clients looking their best with skincare and tanning services. Free childcare services allow parents to take advantage of the gamut of offerings.
At New Ageless Massage, licensed therapists blend ancient Eastern techniques with flowing Swedish bodywork to improve mobility and quiet squeaky human hinges. Clients can retreat into cozy private rooms for Thai bodywork, hot-stone massages, or the firm pressure of deep-tissue techniques. Infant, toddler, and teen massages are also available to relieve the aches and pains of growing up or constantly fighting for the right to party.
Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That’s why 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 and Audrina Mei, the center's holistic estheticians, blend 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. They read 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 and Audrina also help clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.
At Glynn Jones Salon, experienced aestheticians and stylists bolster an array of salon, spa, and tanning services with high-quality products from brands such as Joico, Bumble and bumble, and OPI. Junior, senior, and master stylists crop coiffures and smooth tresses with the sleekening ministrations of GKhair treatments, and nail technicians treat hands and feet to mani-pedis. A series of private treatment rooms branch off from the salon, shrouding clients in privacy as they enjoy organic, green facials or waxing services, which enlist the powers of paraffin wax to remove extraneous hair and firmly lodged bellybutton lint.
From prestigious locales such as the University Club to the tranquil environs of MassageWorks DC, LLC, licensed massage therapist Robert Hawkins has relieved stress and injuries with Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages. He also uses special techniques to treat jaw pain and headaches, and he performs lypossage treatments so that clients can reshape their figures without undergoing invasive surgeries or using baggage claims as treadmills.
