Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed away in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s deal: for $55, you get a one-hour massage and a 25-minute anti-aging massage facial (a $115 value) at Aza Wellness in Takoma Park. Aza is a women-only wellness center.
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.
At Aza Wellness, women enjoy the benefit of personalized attention from the same female therapist every time. Treatment times are unabbreviated—60 minutes of massage means 60 minutes, not 50 or 49.5 or 49.472, unlike at many salons and according to some clocks.
