9 DC Salon and Spa Specials for Mother’s Day 2015

Did someone say "Swedish massage?"

Mom spoils you all year, and for one day in May, it’s your time to return the favor. Here are nine salons and spas that have got your back—or hers, covered with massage oil–to ensure she has a relaxing, pampered Mother’s Day (which is this Sunday, May 10, kids). Go for a single service, or buy her a whole Mother’s Day special spa package—either way, even just an hour to relax on her own will be appreciated.

Aura Spa

The four area Aura Spas, located at Vida Fitness gyms around town, are offering up a discount on their facial and massage package. Give mom the best of both worlds with a 30 minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage and a 30 minute nourishing facial for $120.

Blo Blow Dry Bar

Blowouts are on Blo this Mother’s Day. Schedule mom an appointment at Blo’s Dupont salon on Sunday, May 10, and she’ll receive a free blowout and glass of champaign. Call 202-293-2256 to make a reservation.

Hela Spa

Mom can get the royal treatment this May with a three-service package at Hela Spa. The package includes an aromatherapy cleansing facial, a 50-minute hot stone massage, and an eye contour treatment for $220.
