Best Spa in DC!

In a rather wonderful turn of events, Freed Bodyworks got a nod from DCist as one of the best spas in DC!¬†Check it out– we’re one of seven listed:

FREED BODYWORKS:¬†This Southeast spot is not a spa. But we’ll include it on this list because they offer, hands down, the best massages in D.C. The staff is not only great at what they do, they listen and care about the person on the table. If you’re looking for a healing massage but don’t require a fluffy robe or champagne, this is the spot for you.

 

Freed Bodyworks is located at 1426 Pennsylvania Avenue SE.

I feel so fancy. Also, “hands down”? Well played, DCist.

Success Dance!
