The Washingtonian’s daily news-feed alerted me that it is Spa Week around the country. Translation: Spas in a lot of places are offering $50 treatments. I got on it and just booked myself a Stress Melter Ritual (it involves a body wrap, exfoliation and a massage) at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa in Chevy Chase. For $50 we all deserve it, even in a recession. Go and book now, stimulate the spa industry!
