For six years, Body Bliss's therapists traveled around Maryland, Virginia, and the District, bringing relaxation to its clients as a mobile massage-therapy company. Now with a permanent location, the massage center quells tension with the gliding strokes of Swedish massage and firmer deep-tissue modalities to treat the specific needs of athletes or statues that can't move until their museum closes. Nationally certified massage therapist Reginald A. Taylor guides the team of experienced massage therapists, who tailor treatments to root out the sources of each client's pain.
Althea Medspa is named for the althea flower, or hibiscus, which is well known for its beauty and healing properties. Inside cozy, private rooms, Althea's team upholds the transformative spirit of this flower when boosting clients’ beauty with professional laser services, cosmetic injections, and infrared therapy. A professional designer was hired to outfit Althea Medspa with a tranquil atmosphere, harnessing the calming practices of feng shui and a fountain to soothe visitors and vacationing flying fish.
New Life Wellness Center approaches overall health from many different avenues. The center's specialists help the body rid itself of toxins and function more efficiently with treatments such as colon hydrotherapy, a cleansing method with roots in ancient Egypt and Greece. Japanese reiki, a hands-on healing technique, and Aqua Chi footbaths, a more technologically rooted treatment, focus more on stimulating energy in the body. Meanwhile, chiropractic services and massages focus on the nuts, bolts, and elaborate pulley systems of the human body.
The trained staff at The Skinny Spa helps people lose weight through a combination of advanced technology, tried and tested know-how. By pairing detox sessions with balanced nutrition recommendations, they aim to melt away pounds while simultaneously improving cardiovascular health. The infrared saunas and body wraps used in their treatments don't simply get sweat glands pumping; their soothing heat is known to ease aches, arthritis, or sore muscles caused by long hours at the office and stress.
A trip to Hot Yoga Spa Nutrition & Wellness Center may not be the equivalent of a Hawaiian vacation,
but it's not so far off either. Patrons who close their eyes might imagine themselves in a tropical environment as they sweat their way through hot yoga, hot barre, hot Pilates, Zumba, and other fitness classes held in two heated studios. Or, as they relax in a far-infrared sauna that raises body temperatures to flush out toxins. But the wellness center has more in common with an island retreat than just heat and roaming ukelele players?it aims to be a place where customers can come to totally unwind and refresh both body and mind. To that end, it also welcomes clients to relax at an organic tea and oxygen bar, or head to the attached spa to enjoy a full slate of beauty and wellness services.
