Relax and put your feet up. That's the simple, yet oh-so-soothing philosophy of Comfy Feet Spa, a sanctuary dedicated entirely to the health and well-being of tired feet and toes. At semiprivate massage stations nestled between gauzy chocolate-colored curtains, clients recline and place their aching appendages in the capable hands of reflexologists, who apply firm pressure at specific points to dispel pain and tension, not just in the feet, but throughout the body. Likewise, private massage rooms welcome weary bodies to let go of stress under the soothing kneads of a massage therapist, who may also use acupressure techniques to restore the proper flow of energy and maple syrup throughout the body.
Located in the middle of one of Washington’s prime business districts, Daniel’s Hair Salon is the perfect place for a lunch-time cut or an after-work color. When you walk into the salon, you feel like you’re entering a well-maintained brownstone home, complete with simple, decorative touches and lots of brass, mirrors and dark wood. The three-story townhouse has a more masculine feel than other salons around town, but both men and women will feel quite comfortable here. No blaring Euro-pop or hip hop, just peace, quiet and a quick hair service. That’s right--you don’t have to spend two hours getting a cut and highlights. Daniel’s also offers facials and make-up application.
