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.
An oasis is a retreat from the everyday, a safe haven from stress and negativity. The therapists at Enomis Oasis Spa strive to cultivate a similarly serene environment and invite their clients to enjoy pampering treatments in a state of complete relaxation. Detoxification services, such as colonics, ionic footbaths, and steam baths, work to deport impurities from this republic of respite, whereas acupuncture, reiki, and reflexology help keep energy levels balanced.
Located inside the Center for the Healing Arts, Eco-Massage by Fanny strives to heal clients while supporting a healthy environment. To that effect, the studio's owner, holistic massage therapist Fanny Mandelberger, can augment her repertoire of massage kneads with eco-conscience, therapeutic-grade linaments and oils. Bodywork techniques such as integrative reflexology, Ayurvedic aromatherapy, mindful meditation, and breath work complement the massages.
Aza Wellness is home to experienced and licensed massage therapist and holistic health practitioner Razan Gregory, a graduate of the Baltimore School of Massage. In a cozy environment, clients receive a one-hour signature massage ($65) that combines calming Swedish-massage techniques, a muscle-untensing deep-tissue massage, stretching for increased range of motion, and rocking movements gentle enough to balance bodies. Afterward, patients can relax with a 25-minute anti-aging facial massage ($50), which exfoliates before massaging the facial/neck/décolleté zones, cleansing with a honey mask, hydrating, and applying an essential-oil-drenched hot towel. The treatment turns an adult face into that of a baby adult or just a baby.
When Dr. Caryl Mussenden was six years old, she knew she wanted to become a doctor. After studying at Howard University's College of Medicine and holding residency at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, she realized this dream. Beginning as a board-certified OB/GYN, Dr. Mussenden taught young women the basics of self care, eventually transitioning into opening her own gynecological and med spa practice, Your Body by Design & Medi-Spa.
In 2006, Dr. Mussenden created the Medi Spa division to welcome clients looking for spa services and laser work. And today, along with her dedicated staff, Mussenden helps men and women achieve their aesthetic aspirations through customized dermal filler injections, chemical peels, laser hair removal, body wraps, and Jade therapy.
