The tension tamers at Comfort and Joy Wellness, which has garnered positive press in Northern Virginia Magazine, pamper patrons with soothing strokes and all-natural and organic products. The 100% recycled Tidings of Joy gift bag blankets bodies in scents of the season, as citrus, cedarwood, and Santa’s sweet breath waft from a tin soy candle from Aromaland. A healing CD from Soundings of the Planet fills minds with blissful harmonies, and recipients reward tummies with milk-chocolate organic-and-vegan truffles. Suki’s 100% organic washcloth gilds wet skin in absorbent and plush textures, and the sensitive cleaning bars’ lemongrass, ginger root, and fair-trade shea butter rinse off remnants of the annual thumb war with the Christmas ham.
Massage therapists soothe patrons and tense limbs through 90-minute couples-massage lessons. Muscle menders imbue the basics of four massage styles for coaxing the neck, shoulders, low back, feet, and head to lie down and play dead. The cossetting primer deeply relaxes the body with soothing strokes that target tension, remove it, and repurpose it for sealing pickle jars. The green-leaning spa, touted as an EcoSpa on Discover Spas with Julie Register, supports fair-trade businesses and engages in earth-friendly activities such as recycling and composting sighs of contentment to fertilize zen gardens.

Moroccan salt-glow body scrubs burnish skin with Dead Sea minerals and tangerine essential oil for dewy complexions. Staff members also perform European-inspired services with Epicuren and suki skincare products, SpaRitual vegan nail lacquer, and natural hair-coloring lines.
