Our facials incorporate Apothecary Richmond skin care line. We nurture the body with touch therapy and the use of natural, organic, and wild crafted herbs, clays, plant oils, hydrosols, and essential oils. Ingredients were chosen to address common skin care concerns such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and aging. Apothecary Richmond is about investing in what nurtures the body, through daily ritual, simplicity, and mindful consumption.

The creator of Apothecary Richmond skin care line. It was born out of the desire to create simple, effective, and safe personal care products.

Her skin care treatments are inspired by the classic European style facial, with focus on clearing lymph and reducing congestion in the tissues. As a massage therapist Summer has studied extensively in aromatherapy, facial lines, cupping, and the lymphatic system.


Summer graduated from American Institute of Massage, now Lotus School of Integrative Studies in 2012. She became Board Certified in 2016 and a Licensed Esthetician in 2015. She has a BA in English Literature from VCU, studied and taught ESL classes in the Czech Republic, managed a restaurant in Brooklyn, and pulled espresso in Seattle.



"I will be back. I did a massage and facial with Summer, and had the most relaxing experience ever. The facial was great for my rosacea, and my skin has improved overall. I have nothing but great things to say, and I can't wait to book my next appointment."

What do I wear?
You will be on a heated treatment table with sheets and a blanket to keep you warm and relaxed, much like a massage service you will be asked to disrobe to your comfort level.

I have skin or dietary allergies, or I am pregnant, what should I do?
Any and all concerns should be directed to our Esthetician, at least 48 hours before your service. Apothecary Richmond products are handcrafted and if special provisions need to be made for your service a little time is required for formulation. You can email summer@vitalityfloatspa.com with concerns.

What if I do not currently have a skin care line that I enjoy using, or I do not know what ingredients to look for in my products?
We want to educate you on how to best care for your skin. If you want to talk about ingredients or specific skin concerns we encourage you to address this in our consultation.

What skin care line do you use at Vitality?
We use Apothecary Richmond products in our facials. Apothecary Richmond is a handcrafted skin and body care line made by our in house Esthetician, Summer Alexander.

What if I need to cancel my appointment?
We ask that you give 12 hours notice for cancellation.

What if I am running late?
We all run late sometimes. We will do our best to accommodate you. However, the length of your service may be cut short so we can keep on schedule for other clients.
