Mommy-Chic Monday… Spa Time
Happy Spring Monday!!! Hope it was a beautiful weekend wherever you are! The weather was absolutely amazing here (D.C.) this weekend-truly refreshing! Which is a great segue into this post…Sometimes life calls for 3 R’s– relax, revive, rejuvenate; especially if you are a working, mom & wife, like myself. Thank goodness for spring breaks; they are so necessary! Fortunately, I work in the field of education and spring breaks are built into the school year, I don’t know what I would do without them! I think I would just have to implement my own personal spring break if I ever decided to leave the school system, but for now I look forward to this time of the year to give myself a little reboot and recharge my inner-battery! So, how did I spend my spring break? At the spa, of course!! Allow me to introduce you to The Still Point.
The Still Point is a full-service spa and wellness center with two locations in the DC Metro area. I have visited the Takoma Park location, which is a cute, artsy, family-friendly little area right outside of DC, and have never been disappointed. The Still Point offers various types of massages therapy, eco-friendly skin care ( I tried the waxing, best I’ve had in a long time), nutritional coaching, reiki, yoga, and even gardening coaching! My go to massage therapist is Brigitte Rawlings-she’s amazing with a capital “A”! I’ve been receiving A+ treatment from Ms. B for over 6 six years (if not longer, my memory is not what it used to be-hello 2 kids!). Brigitte is a staple at any of my sister’s wellness parties and she also was a guest star at my 2nd babyshower-Amaze-Bay! She gives good prenatal/postnatal massages (this place is a close 2nd for all my L.A. peeps, sorry I can’t recall the therapists name,blame it on the babies once again or maybe just age?)
The Still Point Takoma Park is located in a quaint, converted colonial home. It is a remarkable and inviting space. Very tranquil and zen. From the moment you enter through the front door, you are greeted by a warm individual and your senses are immediately delighted by the handmade Toma custom-made essential oils and products. The receptionist gets you signed in and prepared and your massage therapist escorts you away into another tranquil space with aptly themed rooms, mine just happened to be named after The Delano (which is another favorite spot). I had an hour long treatment, of which I didn’t want to end, but I had to keep on schedule for my next service with the lovely aesthetician, Angela (ask for her).
Another fantastic experience was had at The Still Point. I left feeling Relaxed, Revived, and Rejuvenated and Ready to face the week of work ahead! Sometimes you need a jump start and if you are in the DC area, let The Still Point take care of getting you back on track and tell them Toni sent ya!
Chat ya’ later!
