Stepping into Hideaway Massage is like stepping into a seaside resort at dusk. Candlelight flickers against framed prints of starfish, seahorses, and nautical maps hung on blue and sand-colored walls while tinkling chandeliers hang above heated massage tables. Inside a private single suite, a fireplace crackles, its light casting a warm glow and keeping stressed-out Santas from stopping by uninvited. Within this relaxation haven, seven nationally certified massage therapists drape their clients with sheets as they unfurl more than 10 varieties of massage, employing everything from Swedish strokes to hot stones. Aromatherapy oils may fill the senses and heated towels may help ease clients' transition into a calm state of bliss, but either way, as their muscles unknot they can stay hydrated with complimentary spring water. Therapists also apply many of the same treatments to pairs during couples massages and soothe skin and muscles with add-ons such as seaweed body wraps, foot scrubs, and head massages.
Seasoned vascular surgeons Dr. Garth Rosenberg and Dr. Paul McNeill lead a knowledgeable staff in de-cluttering capillary-laced calves with contemporary sclerotherapy treatments at Capitol Vein and Laser Center. Experts destroy spider veins' superficial matrices of red, blue, and purple across legs by injecting slender microneedles under the skin to rapidly dispense a potent medication. The minimally painful sessions last 10–30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and length of time needed for legs to achieve closure with their departing blemishes. Patients require zero downtime after the treatment and can promptly ditch the earplugs they used to keep legs' choruses of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” from keeping them up at night. In out-of-office hours, Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. McNeill indulge an altruistic streak with a community scholarship fund and overseas pro bono medical care.

Though it happened under unfortunate circumstances, Dr. Tara Urschel discovered chiropractic care at a very young age. At 12, Tara sought treatment due to injuries she received as a competitive figure skater. As she rebounded, Tara realized the benefits of chiropractic, and later, after teaching international athletes under the supervision of Olympic medalist Sergei Chetverukhin, she decided she wanted to help others achieve wellness in the same way. While training at New York Chiropractic College, she met her husband, Dr. Michael Urschel. Together, at Ashburn Medical Spa & Wellness Center, they help clients achieve optimal health through chiropractic care, neurological consultations, herbal medicine, and nutrition counseling.
Though crystal chandeliers, spiraling granite countertops, and glass waterfalls lend Four Seasons Salon & Spa an elegant air, its true indulgences are reserved for its pampered clientele. Licensed staffers administer a potpourri of services ranging from artificial nail enhancements to manicures and pedicures with hot stone massages. They also offer relaxing rubs in the form of deep tissue, Swedish, and lava stone, a relaxing alternative to leaning against an active volcano.
Over in the salon, stylists tint brows, enrich eyelashes with extensions, and rejuvenate dos with perms or thermal straightening. Along with restyling hair, staffers can remove unwanted portions of it with waxing services and laser removal procedures. In addition to everyday pampering, Four Seasons' staff devises extra soothing and beautifying treatments for special occasions such as proms, weddings, and anniversaries.
