VM Body and Health goes a step further than most massage centers: its staff offer eight massage classes dedicated to teaching the finer points of specific modalities. But clients can still receive their choice of 10 available styles from both the East and West, reflecting founder Juan Carlos Villanueva’s passion for traditional Chinese medicine. His interest has taken him throughout Asia to study the continent's indigenous bodywork concepts, resulting not only in Asian massage options at his center but also acupressure and reflexology classes that introduce students to the basics of performing each modality. In addition to massage, staff members host classes and lectures on various aspects of whole-body health, including yoga, nutrition, and the hokey pokey.
At City Massage & Bodywork, nationally certified massage therapists help clients unwind physically and mentally with massage techniques including soothing Swedish strokes, deep tissue?s targeted kneads, and the simmering stress relief of hot-stone therapy. Massage upgrades such as aromatherapy and sauna sessions extend relaxation to other senses and sensations. The spa takes care to only book a few clients for each therapist each day, ensuring they don?t deplete their own energy reserves or run out of nicknames for each person?s individual muscles.
Conveniently located in Tysons Corner Center Mall, Modern Nail Studio has everything the modern nail needs. Unlike old-fashioned nails, modern nails appreciate a classy atmosphere and mood lighting, details that Modern Nail Studio delivers. Clean lines and a neutral palette paint Modern Nail Studio into the 22nd century, and indulgent, oversized pedicure chairs with headrests give the owners of the modern nail a much needed break from their taxing days working as taxidermists of tax collectors. Translucent curtains fall gently from the ceiling, dispersing the pendant lighting throughout the cozy boutique.

When hands and feet are treated at Present Nail Spa, they aren?t just buffed and polished. They?re soaked in red wine or smothered in a watermelon, baobab, and banana mask as clients breathe in exotic or fruity scents. Of course staffers also shape and polish nails, but that's just the beginning. They also treat clients to pomegranate sea-salt scrubs to fight aging, milk and honey to soften and moisturize skin, and green- and white-tea masks to make a gingerbread man?s hands taste better. Other body parts grab the spotlight during the nail spa?s face- and body-waxing services and applications of eyelash extensions.
The staffers at Lotus Nails Spa take mani-pedis to the next level. Of course, they offer classic mani-pedis, but they get creative with variations including mango, chocolate, and tangerine versions. During 50-minute organic spa pedicures, for example, they lavish feet with essential oils and herbal extracts blended with Moroccan argan oil. And they can further up the pampering with nail designs, paraffin dips, and long-lasting gel polish, which remains chip-free for up to two weeks?the average time it takes to claw your way out of a jail cell. Beyond tending to nails, the staff also offers massages and waxing.
