Dianna Rudolph, owner of D?tente Spa Services, is trained in the art of skin and body rejuvenation. As a certified massage therapist, she soothes soft tissue with therapeutic kneading and just the right amount of pressure. Also a licensed aesthetician and nail tech, she clears pores during facials, and pampers natural nails with mani-pedis that include sugar scrubs and massages.
The nail artisans at Southern Style Salon treat fingers and toes to a mani-pedi that both relaxes and beautifies. During the one-hour treatment, caretakers soak and soften all 20 nails and cuticles before trimming and tidying them. As they buff away calluses from soles, nail nurses massage thumbs left tense from hitchhiking to the Arctic Circle and ankles sore from playing footsie with a peg-legged pirate. A fresh coat of lacquer colors nails with a new shade, signifying the arrival of fall or the election of a new county controller.
At Metamorphosis Nails & Spa, nail techs employ a line of organic and vegan products to make digits dazzling. In addition to standard and signature mani-pedis, staff members affix long-lasting gel polish onto nails or apply artfully designed acrylics. Aestheticians pamper the rest of the body with mud wraps, detox wraps, and sugar scrubs that help clients camouflage themselves atop wedding cakes. Guests can also opt for hair removal by wax or laser or choose spa packages that include mani-pedis, foot massages, and glasses of champagne.
Like a cottage out of a fairy tale, A Petite Retreat is framed by lush greenery and cobblestone pathways. Thankfully, there are no wolves in disguise roaming the halls of this charming spa?only the faint aroma of lavender and a friendly staff that will lead you to a private treatment room.
That?s not to say an experience at A Petite Retreat is anything less than enchanting. The spa?s two licensed massage therapists come equipped with organic healing ointments and warm heating pads that prepare muscles for custom Swedish and deep-tissue massages. The duo?s facials brighten complexions with vitamin-C and grape-vine extracts, and their body scrubs soften skin with an aquatic blend of mud and sea salt as they croon relaxing whale songs.

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.
At Petite Retreat, seasoned stylists hone hair into chic shape. Under track lighting, Petite Retreat's floors tick with the snip of scissors as stylists chisel the stagnant ?dos of men, women, and children into finished masterpieces.
