The certified therapists at Heart and Hand Therapeutic Massage understand that some bodies respond to certain treatments better than others. Keeping this in mind, they offer everything from gentle Swedish techniques to firm deep-tissue strokes. They even have a specialty raindrop therapy designed to align the electrical fields of the nervous system by dripping essential oils across the spine. Heart and Hand’s services, however, extend far beyond the spine. Life coach Lori McGhee offers emotional support, career guidance, and tips on how to improve your health by sleeping better.

For more than 15 years, Mary Seyedan has helped residents of Manassas and Fairfax County look and feel beautiful. Inside her salon and day spa, stylists lighten long locks, adding shape and dimensional color with help from products by Wella and Alterna. Stressed scalps can find relief with a soothing massage or relax as deep conditioners melt into parched tresses to leave them healthy and soft, and 100% human hair extensions by Great Lengths are also available for guests looking to emulate their favorite celebrity or pose as Captain Caveman. Beyond hair, the day spa also caters to nails and curates clearer complexions with facials and body treatments that incorporate exfoliating scrubs, firming fruits, or softening paraffin wax.
To step into SunBright Tanning Salon is to be splashed with brightness, from the lime-green walls and neon-orange couch in the lounge to the blue glow of the horizontal and standup Pacifica and Saturn beds. The other gleam emanates from clients who have already used the salon's services, which include a Mystic Tan automated system that coats skin with a DHA-based solution. This solution not only bronzes bodies for up to seven days but also hydrates the skin, just as pulling the fire alarm hydrates a science fair.

Across more than 100 locations, Hollywood Tans’ seasoned technicians turn pallid complexions bronze with their selection of UV tanning beds and spray tan booths. No appointment is necessary thanks to their vertical tanning booths, which toast epidermises in less time and with less UVB rays than traditional lay-down beds. The low- to mid-pressure booths have a maximum tanning time of 10 minutes, or one really drawn-out, operatic version of Happy Birthday. For a UV-free tan, automated Mystic spray tanning booths tint facades in shades ranging from glow to dark.
