For over 40 years, the Del Ray Business Association (DRBA) has unified small businesses adjacent to and along Mount Vernon Avenue, emphasizing community, diversity, and inclusion. The numerous wellness businesses represented here are a reflection of that vision.
Within Del Ray is a dynamic group of health, wellness and fitness professionals offering a comprehensive and broad range of services. Often working in tandem, a unique network has innately developed, making the Del Ray community a hub for health and wellness.
“Over the past twenty years, Del Ray has become the center of health and wellness in the region, with a wide range of award-winning wellness providers and fitness studios,” said Del Ray Business Association President Sue Kovalsky. “We are proud of the tireless work that The Wellness District does to connect the community to resources that help them live their best lives."
In addition to day-to-day collaborations for best patient care, the group works tirelessly to educate the public on health issues and promote wellness. The Wellness District hosts wellness workshops throughout the year, plus National Wellness Week events; a self-care focused Twelve Days of Wellness over the holidays; plus their signature event, the Well Ray summer festival, that draws thousands of participants each year.
“When we opened Chrysalis Chiropractic in 2003, we knew this community offered something special. We have since seen the wellness businesses explode here, and it seemed apparent that the next natural growth opportunity for the DRBA wellness businesses was to collectively deem ourselves The Wellness District,” said Dr. Lola Capps.
The Del Ray Business Association is an organization of business owners and professionals that strive for growth, visibility and success of its members. It serves as an advocate, representative, and educator for businesses within the community of Del Ray in Alexandria, Virginia.
