Blissful Bargain

Bliss, the trendsetting New York spa, has opened in Washington, and prime-time appointments seem harder to score than an invite to a White House dinner. The posh relaxation lounge and the brownie platter are nice, but luxe treatments are the draw. This month, mention The Washingtonian when booking to receive a free hot-cream manicure ($25 value) with a Blissage 75, the spa’s signature 75-minute massage ($150).

Bliss, W Hotel, 515 15th St., NW; 877-862-5477.

Peaceful Pampering

Enjoy guilt-free pampering—with organic products—at Dupont Circle’s new Peace and Ginger salon. New customers who mention the magazine when booking (or who type the word “Washingtonian” in the special-requests section if booking online) get 25 percent off a one-hour Swedish, deep-tissue, myofascial, pain-therapy, or integrative massage (each normally $100). Both new and returning clients can get 20 percent off a warm-ginger-oil massage ($150 for one hour, $190 for 90 minutes) or any other 90-minute massage (normally $140) all month long.

Peace and Ginger, 1608 20th St., NW, Third Floor (inside District Wellness Group); 202-986-3180.

Fountains of Youth

Fountains is a longtime favorite spa in Old Town. In September, mention The Washingtonian when booking to receive 20 percent off any single service or off a massage-facial combo Monday through Friday. This promotion excludes waxing.

Fountains Day Spa, 422 S. Washington St., Alexandria; 703-549-1990.

Get in Sync

Synergy Day Spa is a small gem in DC’s Adams Morgan. Mention The Washingtonian at booking to get a free eyebrow shaping ($25 value) with a 75-minute BioElements facial ($115) or 20 percent off a 90-minute massage (normally $150) all month long.

Synergy Day Spa, 1806 Vernon St., NW, Suite C; 202-667-1855.

It’s D’Lovely

Shape up your brows at D’Brows, a DC salon that does waxing, skin care, and more. This month, mention The Washingtonian to receive a free brow wax ($28 value) or 20 percent off all services when you spend more than $65 on any treatments.

D’Brows, 1203 U St., NW, Lower Level; 202-232-7677.

Finding Your Qi

This month, book a Parisian facial ($95 for 50 minutes, $140 for 80 minutes) or Thai massage ($95 for one hour, $180 for two hours) at Georgetown’s Qi Spa and get 20 percent off when mentioning the magazine; couples massages ($200 to $300) are 15 percent off. If you’d like 15-to-20-percent discounts all year long, consider a Qi Spa VIP membership ($199); mention The Washingtonian to get it at half off.
