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.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamal Yousefi's attention to aesthetic detail telegraphs his belief that plastic surgery is an art. Dr. Yousefi and the staff of Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center flatten fine lines and wrinkles with precise injections of Botox. He also fashions slimmer silhouettes with traditional and laser liposuction, redesigns fa?ades with procedures such as face-lifts, eyelid surgery, and chin and cheek implants, and augments bodies with abdominoplasty, tummy tucks, and breast reductions. The doctor even enjoys using his free time to hone his artistic skills by drawing, sculpting with clay, and removing the appendices of statues.
A veritable oasis of holistic pampering and healing, Little Washington Wellness & Spa offers massages, skincare services, and nail treatments, in addition to outdoor programs and guided hikes. "I wanted to have a center of wellness that draws upon the positive energy from the mountains and from the people in this wonderful place that is Rappahannock County,? said owner Jackie Meuse in an interview in The Georgetowner. As for her own talents, Jackie specializes in Thai reflexology, a massage modality that balances energy levels throughout the body by stimulating specific points in the feet.
The team at Washington Bodywork Studio tackles pain with a twofold approach. The studio specializes in both chiropractic care and massage therapy, which staff use to design treatment regimens that address misaligned spines and muscular discomfort. Here, massage strokes are customized to suit the specific needs of each client: deep tissue techniques help root out lingering muscle pain, reflexology tends to trigger points not readily accessible to kneading hands, and chair massage helps ease the soreness experienced by those who are frequently sat upon.
With Love, Health, & Reflexology's therapists focus on one of the hardest working parts of the body: the feet. They dedicate at least half of any given appointment to massage tension out of tired feet. During the other half, they give a little attention to the rest of the body. They prefer to use the light, relaxing strokes of Swedish massage on legs, backs, necks, and arms to complement their focused kneading of feet.
The Sugaring House is staffed by a licensed aesthetician and technicians well versed in the art of sugar waxing. This hair-removal procedure favors Sugaring House's own sugar paste over wax, which is used to remove body hair while producing less irritation than other methods. The staff services both men and women with hair removal treatments for the full body; they also offer specialty shape-waxing for the bikini area, which yields designs such as landing strips, triangles, and custom lettering. The team also offers anti-aging and acne facials, and the space sets a relaxing tone for the experience with soft-lit private rooms adorned with flowers and plush treatments beds.
