Laura Urquhart grew up in a spa. Spa treatments were the family business, and as a young child Laura absorbed her parents' dedication to beauty and appreciation for relaxation as a crucial component of happy lives. As an adult, Laura worked to become a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, opening Mango Bliss Spa to share her passion. Her retreat's menu is populated with treatments that she personally designed, from massages that melt tension with hot seashells to Aquabrasion facials that lift bacteria from pores with ultrasound technology. She infuses each service with organic products and offers add-ons, including her specialty, aromatherapy, to augment the sensory effect of each service more pleasantly than equipping treatment rooms with velcro sheets.
Majestic Medical Touch Spa owners Jimmy Little and Malea Moore met while attending the International School of Skin, Nailcare & Massage Therapy. Like a mouse that scratches behind an elephant?s ear in exchange for protection, the two decided to join forces, lending their specialized talents to provide clients with a full range of skin and bodycare treatments.
Jimmy, a professional aesthetician, specializes in advanced bodywork techniques and corrective skincare such as advanced custom peels for different skin types. Likewise, as a licensed aesthetician, Malea specializes in corrective skincare and participates in ongoing studies of reflexology and advanced machines. Her treatments are developed to relax, renew, and detoxify the skin.
At Mind & Body Day Spa, staff members eschew fluff and pretensions to stay focused on their main goals: to help clients relax and see beautifying results. Their customized skincare treatments harness plant-based ingredients such as pineapple enzymes and pumpkin extracts, giving complexions a natural glow. Alternatively, back massages, scrubs, and wraps extend relaxation throughout the body, much like remembering that you definitely did turn the death ray off before you left the house. Spa packages combine services for more complete pampering.
Amid Mezz Spa's serene, home-like environs, seasoned aestheticians strive to cultivate youthful, radiant skin through custom facials, waxing, and aromatic body scrubs. They wield powerful PCA Skin products as they cleanse visages, vanquishing deeper epidermal woes with medical-spa treatments, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels. The team works alongside resident massage therapists, who de-stress sore musculature with such modalities as reflexology and hot-stone and prenatal massage.
Within a tranquil, private room, a massage therapist lightly sets smooth, heated stones along a client’s back. Nearby, a professional athlete discusses her chronic pain or injury-related soreness with a therapist, who tailors the pressure accordingly. These represent just a snippet of the day-to-day activities at Mercy's Touch Massage Clinic, where staffers reenergize bodies and minds with an array of massage modalities—including prenatal, Swedish, and deep tissue—as well as other calming services such as body wraps, aromatherapy, and advanced sheep-counting techniques.
Bluefern Spa at Johns Creek instills more than a dozen rooms with details designed for relaxation?right down to the color of the walls. Soothing aqua blue accents complement the rooms' earthy green and brown hues, while soft music and aromatherapy nourish the other senses to ease visitors' minds by assuring them their ears and noses haven't suddenly disappeared. Treatments range from massages and reflexology treatments to sugar body scrubs and organic facials. The spa also houses a halotherapy room, lined with Himalayan salt bricks, where visitors can recline in zero-gravity chairs and breathe the salt-infused air to help relieve symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and skin conditions such as eczema.
