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.
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.
Before their stress-relieving treatments even begin, patrons at Spa Sydell sink into deep relaxation.

Inside the tranquil treatment rooms, the spa?s licensed estheticians and massage therapists?all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques?further relax clients with a variety of services that rejuvenate the mind, body, and 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.
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.
