May 10, 2021 As I approach the end of my time in DC I’ve had countless people ask me who I would now recommend for their services. I am happy to announce that I have a great recommendation for facials; BeSpoke Esthetic, just a few blocks away at P and Wisconsin. They use Osmosis products and have the same dedication to relaxation and results driven services that I do. I received a facial from Lexi recently and I loved it. They are offering 20% off to all Volta clients on their first appointment at BeSpoke using the offer code I Love Volta. Appointments can be made online here. Adriene, the owner, recommends my clients book an “Initial Facial Infusion” treatment. This offer is good though the end of July. Carolyn Bea is still searching for the right location for her to continue giving incredible massages, but in the meantime please add your email address to this list and she will be in contact with how to book with her in the future. I have not yet found a good waxing referral - if you have someone that you love, please let me know so I can pass that information on as well! Thank you again for the outpouring of love and support I have received. It has been such an honor to work with you all. My heart is full. - Sarah
March 8, 2021 It is with a heavy heart that I announce the closure of Volta on May 16th. My family is relocating to Pennsylvania this summer, and while we are very excited for what the future holds, closing my business was not a decision made lightly. Running Volta for the past five and a half years has been one of the greatest joys of my life -- in no small part because of the relationships I've shared with so many of you. My heart breaks a little knowing that we will no longer get to have regular in-person check-ins, but while my heart is heavy, it is also a grateful one. Grateful that you've allowed me to travel alongside you through marriages, divorces, pregnancies, losses, job changes, and all of the highs and lows that flesh out our lives. You have entrusted me to care for you, and I have loved every minute of it. If you’ve only been to Volta once, or if you’ve been once a month for several years - thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I will forever be grateful for all of you.
Any outstanding gift cards are valid through May 16. If you purchased a gift card for yourself, you may request a refund. Refunds are not available if the purchase was made by another person. As always, you may choose to use a gift card for skincare purchases. Speaking of: all Osmosis and Image products will be 20% off while supplies last. I will continue to be able to ship products to you, even after May, so I hope you still consider me as your source for the best products around! For massage clients, please allow me to refer you to the incomparable Carolyn Bea. While you may not yet have had a chance to meet her at Volta, her style of massage is comparable to mine, and her skills, in my opinion, exceed my own. For waxing and skincare clients, I am working on finding estheticians that I trust to refer you to. I will share that information in the near future.
Thank you for an amazing run - I couldn’t have done it without you. With love, Sarah Howell
