Need a break? Loudoun’s various day spas may be the answer

After a long and cold winter, and many days with kids home from school, a few hours at a day spa sounds like heaven on earth. Fortunately, there are several options in the area that can warm up your body and spirit and help rejuvenate you as we head into spring.

Inspired by some of the finest spas in the world, Salamander Resort and Spa in Middleburg opened in August 2013.

As the creation of Sheila Johnson, the 23,000-square-foot spa was at the center of her vision for building the 168-room resort. There are 14 deluxe treatment rooms, most rooms with a gas fireplace or an outdoor terrace.

“Salamander offers some unusual treatments that are popular with local residents,” said Matt Owen, corporate director of public relations for Salamander Resorts.
 In fact, many of the items on the treatment menu have the local community in mind. There is a “rider’s relief massage” for equestrians ($165 for 50 minutes) and a deep tissue “golfer’s massage” using golf balls to help align the body ($175 for 50 minutes).

“There are mud detox and mineralization treatments that you will not see anywhere else in the mid-Atlantic,” Owen said.

Another popular treatment is the “bamboo massage” ($165 for 50 minutes), where the therapist uses warm bamboo stalks to give a deep combination of heat and pressure to release toxins from the body caused by stress. 

There are a variety of facial skin treatments, including one called “the cure” ($175 for 60 minutes), which uses enzymatic heat to open the pores and botanical products to soothe, moisturize and revitalize the skin, creating a luminous appearance.

As a visitor to the spa, guests can sign up for a treatment, and stay for hours enjoying the whirlpool spa room, a eucalyptus-scented steam room or the ultra high-tech rain shower, with multiple settings. There are also radiant heat lounge chairs, a private couple’s room and terrace, a salon for hair, makeup and nails and a fitness center.

In warmer weather, guests can enjoy the outdoor infinity pool, whirlpool and private cabana area. 

Salamander offers special weekend events and promotions, including a “winter warming” treatment ($300), where guests receive a full body exfoliation, followed by a mud wrap and ending with a 50 minute well-being massage.

This article brought to you and paid for by the various Spa establiments in Loudoun County.

Stay tuned…Later today an article from Giant and Safeway about the upcoming “snow” storm.

People should see some of the profits of this huge corporations. The ones that are public. What sickens me is they pay the employees on the front line like $10 an hour and can get away with such low wages .

I highly recommend Hideaway Massage in Leesburg.  Alison Shorb runs an excellent spa & has wonderful staff.
