At Jamachi Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa, a diverse team of practitioners helps beautify clients from head to toenail. At the helm is plastic surgeon Dr. Emeka Onyewu, who has performed thousands of procedures—with a specialty in breast surgeries and liposuction—earning him a level of expertise that's been shared on news programs such as NBC 4. He's joined by Dr. Adaku Onukogu, a board-certified internist who administers flu shots and assists patients with managing their weight, overall health, and well-being.
Nail technicians, massage therapists, and aestheticians head up Jamachi's spa services, which are performed at mani-pedi stations or in treatment rooms. Aesthetician Trina McIntosh draws upon postgraduate training at the International Dermal Institute when revivifying faces with custom blends of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. April Parnell softens hands and feet with such specialty ingredients as champagne, olive oil, and happy unicorn tears during mani-pedis, and massage therapists Nmaku Onyewu and Joel Price lure stress out of bodies with customized techniques.
Stylist Caroline Absalom brings more than a decade of hairstyling and weave-manipulating experience to her station at Tease Hair Salon. Her extensions add length and volume to short or thin tresses, opening up a world of glamorous 'dos and potentially record-setting beehives.
Dr. Dionne Crawford is on a mission. The long-time podiatrist and founder of Crawford Podiatry & Aesthetics wants her clients to enjoy healthy feet without sacrificing beauty, so she's created a practice that offers both medical laser treatments and foot spa services. Here, she helps clients tackle toenail fungus and unwanted hair as well as rewards hard-working feet with pedicures and the faces of hardworking feet with foot facials. She also offers specialty pedicures that tend to the specific needs of seniors and diabetic patients.
Maisie Dunbar feels that she was born to be an artist, though the human body is her canvas and her palette is made up not of paint, but of makeup and quality skincare products. Within her artist's studio, Maisie Dunbar Spa Lounge, she and her staff take a holistic, nurturing approach to everything they do—whether they are smoothing rough skin, massaging stressed muscles, or coating nails in OPI polish. Maisie’s dedication to the beauty industry has earned her numerous celebrity clients over the years as well as appearances at the Grammys and features in O, The Oprah Magazine and the Washington Post, according to the Silver Spring Patch.
Although Maisie’s toolbox contains trusted, high-end products from Essie and Moroccanoil, her continuing search for quality led her one step further than most spa owners to create her own makeup line—BluffaJo Cosmetics. These oil-free, mineral-based products allow skin to breathe normally while still managing to protect it from airborne pollutants and abrasive AM radio waves.

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.
