This year, pencil in a little “me” time and treat yourself to some pre-holiday pampering at The Spa at MINT, a high end fitness center and spa, nestled in eclectic Adam’s Morgan.  This urban retreat, known for its quality services and zen-like atmosphere, features a variety of spa offerings to keep you looking and feeling your best amidst all the holiday rush.  MINT offers everything from acupuncture (for the brave!) to traditional bodywork, facials, and other aesthetic services – all under a calming pastel roof, situated just beyond bustling, iconic U Street.
