Maryland China Co. has a long tradition of ordering fine china pieces from around the world: over a century long, in fact. Today, the staff maintains the shop's reputation by carefully vetting every item in the 1,250-piece collection, which comes from eight countries and four planets. Quality is paramount, so the shop demotes items to the seconds room for minute imperfections, such as slight color variation. A single piece of hand-painted china, such as a cup and saucer decorated with intricate loops and whorls, can take hours to complete. Full tea sets, then, celebrate the careful craftsmanship and leisurely traditions of the Old World.

Despite the large selection of hand-painted wares, undecorated white china and porcelain vases, pots, cups, and bowls dominate the shelves. Sometimes designed with ornate details, such as scalloped edges or antique-style handles, the items are otherwise blank slates for artists. Customers can purchase a small paint set with their china to transform it into a modern work of art with colorful chevrons or 2011 1040 forms.

Many spas claim to focus on total-body wellness, but few go so far as to build their own full-size fitness studio. Few can argue, then, when Spa Seven touts its approach as one that caters to “skin, body, and mind”—not when the spa backs up these words with a comprehensive menu of skin and beauty services and group and private fitness classes held in an expansive, well-equipped studio.

A simple philosophy guides Spa Seven’s multifaceted approach to wellness: no two bodies are the same. The spa’s staff—a highly qualified mélange of aestheticians, massage therapists, and fitness trainers—takes these words to heart when devising custom treatments and routines. Each of the spa’s five facial peels caters to a specific skin type, and a variety of massage techniques work to relieve stress from waiting for hours in traffic or hurling stalled station wagons out of one’s path.

Similarly, the fitness studio’s group classes help guests achieve mind-body symmetry in the way that feels most right for them. On one hand, P90X boot camps sculpt muscles with a program of intense weight-training and nutritional advice; on the other, yoga classes relax the senses with energy-balancing poses and contemplative games of Twister.

Celebrities vouch for the efficacy of Wraptured's unconventional beauty treatments, particularly its flagship service—slenderizing body wraps, provided by Victoria Morton's Suddenly Slender Body Wrap System. On television programs including Ellen and The Tyra Banks Show, hosts have praised the wraps for facilitating weight loss and smoothing out dimples in thighs.

Additional high-tech skincare treatments help the spa abate the aging process. Endermologie and Lift M6 treatments both simulate massage to boost circulation and tighten skin, whereas face taping visibly improves fine lines by smoothing skin with strategically placed pieces of surgical tape.
