For $39, today's side deal gets you your choice of three one-hour massages at Lion and Dragon Yoga (a $90 value), located in Alexandria. Lion and Dragon, a holistic practice run by husband-and-wife team Roy and Brenda Johnson, focuses on individualized treatments aimed at bettering the bodies, minds, and souls of clients.
Choose one of three massage styles: Swedish, Thai yoga, or reflexology. With the Swedish massage, the massage therapist will use long, fluid strokes to scootch away stress and tension. If you choose Thai, you'll remain fully clothed while the therapist assists your body through various yoga stretches, with a dose of strength-restoring and openness-bestowing acupressure thrown in. Clients with antsy feet can opt for a reflexology treatment and let the therapist press and rub specific nerve junctions on the feet and legs, dissipating the angst trapped within their mortal frame.
New clients only. An appointment is required; call 24 hours in advance.
Lion and Dragon Yoga Bodyworks
Roy Johnson was working on his yoga certification when he discovered Thai massage—sometimes called "lazy man's yoga" for the way practitioners stretch and manipulate their clients' limbs. Intrigued, he sought out classes in the style, then went to Thailand to meet other practitioners. Today, Thai massage is just one modality he employs at Lion and Dragon Yoga Bodyworks, which he and his wife, Brenda, strive to make a one-stop shop for bodywork services. In a tranquil, unrushed atmosphere, the pair targets tension through mindful massages, employing various tools such as Hot Stone, Essential Oils and Heated Thai Herbal Bundles. Reflexology treatments target pressure points on the feet to benefit the whole body.
