Between the pandemic, the election, homeschooling, and the holidays, most of us are in anxiety overload and need some relief. To that end, Fairfax County has many amazing day spas, each of which provides an utterly unique experience for soothing your soul. And let’s face it, you’ve earned it.

Better yet, consider adding a touch of “normalcy” to a loved one’s life with a gift certificate they can use for a special occasion or when they feel comfortable going. After all, challenging times call for a little pampering just to stay grounded. The spas below will transport you there.
