Amber light glows against the earth-toned walls of Tea Spa Wellness Center's waiting area, a tranquil cove that foreshadows the pampering services patrons are about to enjoy. Inside private treatment rooms, the spa's licensed massage therapists use essential oils, hot towels, and long, warming strokes during the spa's signature massage, or employ smooth heated rocks to unblock energy pathways and boost circulation during hot-stone massages. Tea Spa also provides a reprieve from the harshly lit outside world with custom facials that use Guinot skin-care products to deep-cleanse and tone skin or fade away signs of aging. Meanwhile, an infrared sauna helps clients sweat out toxins. All these amenities add up to Tea Spa being voted to the Washingtonian magazine's list of "Great Day Spas 2013".

Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with gym workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts lathered in a fresh coat of peanut butter every morning. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.

Before opening Bird of Paradise Spa, Maggie Ulloa worked at some of DC's most illustrious spas. Using that experience, she created a space as calming as it is luxurious. At Bird of Paradise, skilled aestheticians smooth skin with full-body waxing or restore healthy glows with a wide range of specialized facials. The spa's massage therapists can then eliminate stress through such body-healing modalities as hot-stone, Swedish, and deep-tissue treatments.

Lavender Retreat Wellness Club takes the word "retreat" seriously. The spa itself is a pleasant spot to retreat to, decorated with lacy curtains, cool green walls, and fresh flowers. However, the team also organizes relaxing retreats for their clients?in the literal, board-a-plane sense of the word?in peaceful, beachy locales. The club will go to unconventional lengths to give clients a break from their everyday stresses, though it stops short of entering every overworked client in the witness protection program. Most of the time, however, the staff gives clients a break the way most spas do?with a variety of relaxing treatments. The massage therapists work in Western modalities, such as Swedish and deep-tissue, as well as Eastern ones, including cupping and acupressure. The acupuncturists, meanwhile, facilitate energy balance within the body with hairlike needles. A team of aestheticians also tends skin with facials infused with vitamin C and pure oxygen.
