For those that had the day off yesterday – hope it was a good one!
I loved seeing everyone’s tributes, well wishes, and positive thoughts about those who have served our country, past and present. Tommy and I honored, celebrated and reflected on these men and women’s accomplishments (including Tommy’s own service for several years) in our personal, special ways.
Two other things I also got a (rare) chance to do was get a much needed facial and get my first official pre-natal massage. 🙂
I was in great need of a facial. I have always had trouble with pimples and blackheads, but I noticed I broke out a lot when I first got pregnant and was eager to remedy some of this damage. I have tried several different places in D.C. – and Chesapeake Beach – to get a facial over the years, but I have not found a place or a facial specialist that matches Celadon Spa in downtown D.C. If/when you go here for a facial ask for Amanda. She is FANTASTIC. So attentive, so thorough, and just so good at her craft. I have also gotten a few massages here and they have never disappointed.
However instead of staying at Celadon for my massage, I scooted over to Georgetown to trusty M3 Massage. I have been going here for about 8 years and have gone to the same massage therapist ever since, Patricia. I love her. She really listens to her clients and does a good job kneading out the kinks and tight muscles. While Patricia was not available yesterday, I got a very good prenatal massage from Tanya. I liked the massage. Of course it was a little different than a normal massage (most of the massage time is spent on your left side and then your right side. You only lay on your back for 5 minutes or so and definitely no time on your stomach). Disclaimer: while M3 is very clean and professional it is a no frills place in the sense that it is very simple establishment – no steam room, etc.
I highly recommend going to these two places for facials and massages. 🙂
Hope everyone has a great night!
