Look like something the cat dragged in? Here’s how to revive in no time.
Get a Tingle
Jill Bucy Skincare (600 Queen Anne Avenue North; 206-283-9295) is the only place in Washington — and one of just a handful in the U.S. — where you can experience Biologique Recherche’s Remodeling Facial. After toning the face with serums and cleansers, the aesthetician applies two sponges. A midfrequency current gives you a lift that’s immediate but noninvasive.
Come clean at a place that doesn’t judge: Georgetown’s Helle Spa (5701c Airport Way South; 206-767-0803). The Your Body Is a Temple detox treatment is a lymphatic dry brush, custom sea salt scrub, bentonite clay wrap, and an aromatic oils finish — to a punk rock serenade.
Exercise Your Demons
A blend of yoga, martial arts, and dance, Dina Innominato’s Nia classes at Dance Underground (340 15th Avenue East) fill up as quickly as you can slip off your shoes. Get in touch with your limbs and find inner grace moving to the beat of your own drum.
Or get a-paddling at Cheka-Looka Surf Shop (3507 Evanston Avenue North; 206-726-7878). Rent a board and paddle to work your core, legs, and arms in the deep blue.
Find Your Fix
You can mix a mean martini, but what about its kindly counterpart, the herbal remedy? Dandelion Botanical Company (5424 Ballard Avenue Northwest, suite 103; 206-545-8892) has Chinese and ayurvedic herbs, cooking spices, teas, and essential oils to put you on the mend. Not sure what’s in order? Ask the endlessly knowledgeable staff or take one of the courses.
Don’t you feel better already?
