Having sore muscles, like signing a five-year lease or wearing lead socks, makes it difficult to move. Evict tensely wound tenants with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a signature reflexology treatment at Happy Feet Reflexology in Rockville (a $60 value).
Happy Feet Reflexology’s seasoned staff bolsters bodies from toes to lashes with holistic treatments that draw on traditional and modern techniques. The one-hour reflexology treatment utilizes ancient Chinese medical theory, and therapists apply pressure to nerve clusters in the hands and feet intended to stimulate internal organs and improve overall health. After forty minutes of pampering extremities, therapists dedicate 20 minutes to melting tension in a back, neck, and shoulder massage that smoothes knots accumulated in the body during last-minute audits of anvil collections. Inside Happy Feet's confines, a soothing soundtrack bears herbal scents across the space to improve relaxation, and gentle lighting and uncluttered modern design calm peepers without having to convince Waldo to don a new outfit.
Timothy’s Salon & Spa
One step into Timothy’s Salon & Spa (formerly Happy Feet), and it's immediately clear that it's a place of relaxation. Herbal fragrances fill the space and low lighting shades the minimalist decor. Soft music plays in a few different styles. It's an easy setting in which to feel relaxed and sets the stage for the reflexology treatments Timothy’s is known for.
But the massage practitioners here have talents that go well beyond toes and soles. Many of their services combine signature reflexology with other techniques, including shiatsu for the shoulders and neck. Or they can focus entirely on Swedish and deep-tissue massages or other custom kneads. Beyond providing that kind of internal bliss, aesthetics are a priority here as well, with stylists who add value to any spa day with haircuts.
