We’re not your typical spa – in fact, we’ve hesitated in calling ourselves a spa at all.
The Still Point isn’t just a temporary feel-good pit stop for beauty and relaxation. We’re a place to pursue and maintain wellness of the mind, body and spirit.
It was inspired within our founder, Tori Paide, through many years of experiences and her deep love of people and the community. As she began an international career working to better lives for people around the world, Tori became keenly aware of different rituals for taking care of oneself and the benefits that therapeutic touch, acupuncture, spiritual healing and other similar work have on both individuals and communities. At the same time, she recognized a great need for this in her own city of Washington, D.C. As Tori left her career to pursue a degree in acupuncture, she realized that the wellness industry could provide much better support for its practitioners and offer a more holistic and natural approach to keeping people healthy.
Through a new partnership with Marla Peoples, a successful acupuncturist and entrepreneur, The Still Point now has two locations in Takoma Park and in Clarksville, Maryland. Marla began her career in Psychology and moved into the corporate world as an executive recruiter and corporate trainer. During this time, she was introduced to acupuncture as a complement to western medicine. The treatments had such a profound affect on her life that she knew she was meant to do this work. Marla is passionate about educating people on proactive wellness and healing.
The Still Point is a women-owned small business that serves the greater Washington, D.C. and Baltimore metro areas with a range of eco-friendly health, beauty and wellness services. Our expertly-trained practitioners offer services in a beautiful and inviting environment, and are pleased to also have the area’s only organic beauty boutique.
Both locations have ample parking and indoor and outdoor areas to enjoy. We seek to maintain an eco-friendly ethos in all aspects of the business, including being 100% wind-powered and offering organic facials, paraben-free massage cream and eco-makeup.
The Still Point nurtures and inspires wellness – changing people’s lives and building healthy communities.
We look forward to seeing you at The Still Point!
