Lavida Massage Alpharetta's friendly staff leads clients into warm, earth-toned treatment rooms and helps them whittle inches from body frames with infrared body wraps. To begin sessions, staffers wrap specialized pads around targeted areas while fully clothed patrons recline comfortably or try their hand at levitation on a treatment bed. As the infrared rays penetrate the skin, the heated body releases fat and toxins into the bloodstream and later passes them out through natural bodily functions. The treatment aims to reduce joint pain, fat, and cellulite, helping bodies shimmy into little black dresses or between the pages of yearbooks just in time for high-school reunions.
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.
For the staff at Jolie Beauty Spa and Nails, a spa isn't just about escaping stress; it should also be a sanctuary from the world's ubiquitous toxins. Inside the 98% chemical-free facility, clients bask in botanical ingredients such as green coffee extract, paraffin wax, aromatherapy oils, and fairy kiss residue. But before the team performs any of their signature spa services, they consult with each client to help tailor their sessions to address their needs.
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.
Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened under the moniker of Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to seven locations. Today, the spa’s experts form a team of licensed skincare professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques. Dr. Tara Margarella and Dr. Herb Kollinger are skilled in advanced injection techniques and work alongside nurse Cheryl Gillis to help perfect the latest aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, using only US FDA approved products.
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.
