Spa Week in The Metro DC Area: EXTENDED!

Spa Week in The Metro DC Area: EXTENDED!

From Spa Week Media:

Kick your legs up and do the Spa Cha Cha… Spa Week’s not really over yet! Those $50 treatments are still kicking! It’s true. Every year, more than half of our spas decide that they are going to extend their Spa Week specials for another week, or even until the end of the month. Why? Many spas book up entirely for Spa Week itself, so they extend to accommodate all appointment calls.

Here’s the list of DMV spas that are still accepting appointments well into the month of October. Take advantage of the $50 sessions of healing, pampering, and relaxation while you still can!
