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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The massage therapists at Spa Therapeutic Massage treat the body as a whole, using holistic methods to promote healing and a positive sense of well being.

They also specialize in cupping therapy to helps promote circulation and relieve pain. Giving clients an extra bit of luxury during their sessions, all massages are performed using blends of organic oils and herbs to soothe skin and promote relaxation.
