Licensed stylist Chris Copeland works to make his clients look and feel beautiful at his chair at Signature Salon & Spa. He places special importance on consulting with his clients, personalizing each service—such as chic haircuts and rich color services with Tocco Magico and Moroccan Oil products—so that everyone is happy with the results. Signature Salon & Spa is more than a place for just hair, though. You can also come in for a massage, a microdermabrasion facial to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, or have eyebrows and legs waxed before a wetsuit fitting.
Dr. Melodie J. Mitchell-Black is something of an over achiever. A lifelong athlete, she translated her time dominating basketball courts and track fields into a career as an athletic trainer. While playing ball at Atlanta Metropolitan College, Dr. Mitchell-Black earned an associate degree in physical therapy. She then added degrees in chiropractic and biology, and finally had enough mortar boards to tile her own basketball court.
While continuing to work with collegiate basketball teams?and serve as their chiropractor?Melodie got involved with professional and collegiate football teams, as well.
In 2012 and 2013 she competed in the FitSciences Fitness Championships, where she was a top finisher in the FitMom division.
Dr. Mitchell-Black's treatments at MJ Mitchell Wellness speak to this background. Most services fall into chiropractic, massage, and sports medicine treatments. She also specializes in fitness and pediatric care. With a wealth of professional, personal, and educational experience informing her efforts, Dr. Mitchell-Black helps athletes and non-athletes alike feel their absolute best.

Susan Zhao understands massage therapy. Licensed to practice in New York, Florida, Virginia, and Georgia, she divides her time between attending to clients' needs and overseeing the three Jo Jo's Massage locations that she founded. At these spas, Susan's staff uses a wide range of massage modalities intended to indulge and relax visitors, provide therapeutic relief, or even a bit of both. During hot-stone massages, a therapist treats troublesome areas with heated stones, which radiate heat to soothe tightly knotted muscles located deep beneath the surface. Reflexology treatments target specific areas along the feet with focused pressure, attempting to trigger the nerves that help heal organ systems throughout the rest of the body.
Beneath the sheer white fabrics draping the ceiling at Luxury Nails and Spa, technicians pamper bodies with nail services, facials, massages, and waxing.

Private treatment rooms house a licensed massage therapist who kneads muscles with Swedish techniques and hot stones and aestheticians who cleanse pores with Dermalogica facial products.
