Review by Meg Hobler

A couple of years ago I asked a massage therapist friend who she would go to for massages and she highly recommended Andrea at the Healing Tree. I've been getting the most amazing massages from Andrea just about every month since then. She always asks if there are particular issues that need attention but then also does her own assessment once I'm on the table -- and inevitably finds other spots that need work! She's trained in several therapeutic disciplines and applies a combination of those methods based on what's going on with me in the moment. There was one visit where I was having lower back problems; over a month after I'd tweaked it overdoing it in the garden, my back was still seizing up whenever I sneezed or coughed - unbearable pain. In that one visit, Andrea figured out it wasn't actually my back that was the problem, it was my hip flexors. One hour later, I was all fixed up and never had a problem again - magic! I've recommended Andrea to a number of friends in the last year and they've all had experiences similar to mind. The Mt Vernon Avenue location is clean, quiet and calming. The online scheduling tool is easy to use and the Healing Tree team is very helpful when you need to shuffle things around at the last minute. If you're looking for a 'day spa'-like experience, this is not it. If you're looking for excellent therapeutic work for either general maintenance or specific injuries and issues, this is absolutely it.

About Alexandria, Virginia

Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 139,966, and in 2019, the population was estimated to be 159,428. Located along the western bank of the Potomac River, Alexandria is approximately 7 miles (11 km) south of downtown Washington, D.C. Like the rest of Northern Virginia, as well as Central Maryland, modern Alexandria has been influenced by its proximity to the U.S. capital. It is largely populated by professionals working in the federal civil service, in the U.S. military, or for one of the many private companies which contract to provide services to the federal government. One of Alexandria's largest employers is the U.S. Department of Defense. Another is the Institute for Defense Analyses. In 2005, the United States Patent and Trademark Office moved to Alexandria, and in 2017, so did the headquarters of the National Science Foundation. The historic center of Alexandria is known as Old Town. With ... Read More

What is a Dispensary?

A dispensary is a store that sells special items or dispenses the specialized items. Cannabis or marijuana dispensariers started in the US some time in the early 1990’s when Dennis Peron opend the San Francisro Cannbis Buyers Club. Back then the cannabis dispensary faced a ton of hardships, but Dennis, his team and dream helped pave the future for all future recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. In 2014 the first recreational dispensary, 3D Cannabis opened it’s doors in Colorado. As of 4-1-19 33 states have medical dispensaries and 10 states have recreational dispensaries.

At a dispnsary one will find many differnt kinds of cannabis flowers (buds) and concentrates, edibles along with smoking untensils, but have a limited selection compared to online shops like Elev8 Glass Gallery. The dispensary also will have what is called a budtender to help you find what you are looking for. If you need help with cannabis info Elev8 Presents is a good resource.

What is the difference between a medical or recreational dispensary?

In realtiy medical and recreational dispensaries are the same thing. This all comes down to the states laws on cannabis. We feel cannabis is just like alcohol and medical will happen first and then recreational will follow, and so far history is showing this. Dispensaries are an excellent place for patients and recreational smokers alike to find the cannabis that best suits their needs!
