Best 90 Minutes of Nirvana
Wat Signature Massage at Wat Massage
1804 Vernon St. NW, (202) 588-9393
The massage therapists at this converted Adams Morgan rowhouse approach their work like doctors: Their goal is to make you feel better, not sell you a pedicure and a facial. Using a combination of Swedish, deep tissue, and Thai techniques, they’ll unlock the muscles you strained by working out or just sitting at your desk for too long. Calming music that sounds more like a white noise machine than Yanni and a spray of lavender oil allow you to reach a state of complete bliss. When it (sadly) ends, you’re sent home with a prescription for further relaxation: herbal tea and hot showers. Now that you can reach it, pat yourself on the back for taking care of yourself.
