Poshe Day Spa to open on Fourth Street N
A new day spa, one of few in the area to offer vichy showers, is opening at 914 Fourth St. N in the space that Embellish monogram and gift store vacated six months ago.
Poshe Day Spa should open in a month, said Ashley Vu, who owns Poshe Nail Spa a few doors down. The vichy shower has eight heads that release massaging water over a treatment table. Clients can choose a gentle rain massage or something stronger.
"Water is excellent treatment," Vu said. The spa will also offer traditional massage, body wraps and facials.
