AAAH, SPAS - Fountains Day Spa

At Fountains Day Spa in Alexandria, instead of lathering up and wiping down your entire face, the Mini Facial (25 minutes $57.00) zeroes in on a problem area specified by you, such as puffy eyes or a pimply forehead.

Fountains Day Spa- This homey spa offers treatment both New Age and tradition. Although the snug surroundings ( there’s no dressing room or relaxation room) didn’t quite feel like an escape, a wonderful 50-minute massage with warmed stalks of bamboo ($120) was deeply relaxing and therapeutic

Great Day Spas 2013: Our 12 Favorite Massages


Fountains Day Spa - 422 S. Washington St., Alexandria; 703-549-1990.
With its cheery flower beds and sunshine-yellow exterior, this quaint Old Town spot feels more like a friend's house than a day spa. And although we sometimes felt squeezed—the snug reception area was so crowded we had to fill out our forms standing up—it all melted away once we'd met Tiffany Davidson, our bubbly massage therapist. Fountains offers both New Age treatments such as Reiki and aromatherapy and more traditional facials and body treatments. We went for something in the middle, a wonderful 50-minute massage using warmed rods of bamboo ($120), which we found more relaxing and therapeutic than any hot-stone massage we've had. One caveat: We were jolted back to reality when our service was over—there's no relaxation area (or even dressing room), so once we were handed a plastic cup of plain water, the only place to go was to the reception desk to pay the bill. Of note: Fountains offers lots of monthly specials—check fountainsdayspa.com or sign up for its e-newsletter to receive them.

This Old Town spa, in a lemon yellow row house, has a cozy atmosphere you can’t help but love. Comfy chairs in the waiting area are a nice spot to sip tea in ceramic mugs with saucers or cucumber infused water while waiting for a treatment.
We recommend the facials – especially those done by owner Suzanne Olsen.

They say lightning never strikes twice – but we’d like to avoid it the first time around. We confessed as much to Hall when she handed us a metal “grounder” and prepared to run electric currents over our face.
She assured us that the mild galvanic charges would simply lift impurities without causing blotches.
We still flinched (from fear, not pain), but besides a metallic taste in our mouth, the only noticeable side effect was silky skin.
The real shocker? No postfacial breakouts. Hydradermie Facial, $95.

Sumptuous Day Spas for Ma

Northern Virginia Living May 2008

Fountains Day Spa
Set in a centuries-old Alexandria townhouse in the historic Old Town area, Fountains (422 S. Washington St., Alexandria; 703-549-1990; www.fountainsdayspa.net) lives up to its promise of a cheery atmosphere and a friendly staff.
Decorated in citrus tones, the spa (no salon services like haircuts or manicures here) is haven of relaxation. Owner Suzanne Olsen (trained in London and Paris) does her absolute utmost to make sure her clients are happy with their therapists as well as their treatments.
The only stressor here? Selection of service. Choose from four types of facials ($90 each) ranging from the Hydradermie (infuses skin with nourishment, hydration and anti-aging ingredients) the Beaute Neuve skin peel to toning treatment Liftosome to the relaxing Aromatic, which features a uniquely customized blend of essential oils.
Those especially craving spiritual and sensory spa healing will go for the Harmony package, which may include any of the following: energy work, reflexology, reiki, or intuitive bodywork. Therapists effectively customize each individual massage to meet the specific needs of each individual client (50 minutes, $105).
Fans of more traditional techniques, however, can also indulge in Swedish ($85) or deep-tissue ($95) services or a combination of the two approaches on troubled areas (a mean ticket tag of only $90).
Best bets when booking for Mom? Check the website frequently. Fountains offers a sign up for daily specials email and posts seasonal discounts ( a nearly $300 savings on a 12-massage package, for example), plus a 10 percent-off coupon for first-timers

2008 More Spas We Love

Washingtonian February 2008

Holistic Haven

Fountains Day Spa The Fountains Day Spa is an intimate, homey retreat for those who don’t mind a dose of holistic advice with their facial; owner Suzanne Olsen might urge a client to switch from antiperspirant to aluminum-free deodorant or “read” a client’s personality through her feet. (Our reviewer was told that her big toe showed she used her brain, though a troubling curve hinted that she was “overbearing.”) Still, clients are well cared for, and our reviewer’s facial was good.

Fountains Day Spa
This old town spa is easy to miss if you are not looking - and their high profile clientele prefers it that way. Owner, Suzanne Olsen keeps the faces of area celebrities camera-ready and advises on everything from nutrition to relaxation techniques. The Guinot Hydradermie facials are often combined with reflexology for what amounts to a full body intervention. Loyal customers bring their teens for skin care education and treatment. Boys have been known to sneak in the back door for their facials. They know Suzanne won't exfoliate and tell.
