The practitioners at Razan Women's Center for Natural Healing strive to heal women's minds, bodies, and souls with a variety of holistic therapies. They apply fragrant herbs in fertility treatments and foot reflexology sessions, or brew them into pots of piping-hot tea. They also unlock tension and boost circulation with soothing massages or cupping therapy, which also uses suction to encourage lymph flow. The Center also offers a cleansing program for those looking to eat healthier for the long-term, and a holistic life-coaching program that helps clients take charge of all aspects of their lives.
Dedicated to destroying stress, Massage Bodyworks & Parties offers a range of muscle-kneading services for tense clients, including standard and hot-stone massages. Prenatal massages ease pregnancy-related pains, and tandem sessions let couples bond and frenemies ensure their companion isn't more relaxed than they are.
ASPA2U's therapists seek to instill relaxation by performing bodywork in the most comforting place of all—your own home. Licensed and certified staff members travel with supplies in tow to perform soothing Swedish massages on clients' backs or work deep knots. The team also administers beautifying body treatments including detoxifying wraps and body polish sessions.
Amber light glows against the earth-toned walls of Tea Spa Wellness Center's waiting area, a tranquil cove that foreshadows the pampering services patrons are about to enjoy. Inside private treatment rooms, the spa's licensed massage therapists use essential oils, hot towels, and long, warming strokes during the spa's signature massage, or employ smooth heated rocks to unblock energy pathways and boost circulation during hot-stone massages. Tea Spa also provides a reprieve from the harshly lit outside world with custom facials that use Guinot skin-care products to deep-cleanse and tone skin or fade away signs of aging. Meanwhile, an infrared sauna helps clients sweat out toxins. All these amenities add up to Tea Spa being voted to the Washingtonian magazine's list of "Great Day Spas 2013".
The makeup artists at the organic beauty boutique apply 100% nontoxic beauty products, and during the half-hour makeup application, only the likes of RMS Beauty, Julie Hewett, Vapour, and other natural brands will grace your face. The Still Point's trained appliers will work with you to create a customized look for any special event or reality-show audition. Opt for a dramatic dusting of color to the cheeks to appear appropriately rosy, or request expertly lined eyes to enhance a striking facial feature, your earlobes. The application also includes detailed instructions on how to replicate the look in front of a mirror at home or in an amusement park.
It’s easier to connect The Spa Room’s seeming hodgepodge of treatments if you look at owner Mary Szegda. Her background and training includes a master of arts degree in applied psychology, a certification for infant massage instructorship, a massage-therapy license, and training in the Feldenkrais method—a therapy designed to pinpoint and correct habits that can cause shoulder pain and muscle tension.
Together, Mary and her skilled staff, administer Swedish and prenatal massage, aromatherapy treatments, craniosacral therapy, and spa services such as a hand treatment that combines pomegranate cream and paraffin. The staff holds four advanced degrees among themselves, and several of them have experience teaching at the university level. Most of them have served as lead or assistant teachers at local massage schools. In addition, The Spa Room offers a variety of classes and workshops including massage education, infant-massage instruction, and restorative yoga.
