Anuschka Jivan Wellness takes holistic healing seriously. The massage center espouses a philosophy that considers environmental stewardship an integral aspect of holistic wellness; after all, the earth—with its interconnected web of goings-on—is also an organism that needs caring for. This philosophy guides all aspects of the therapists’ practice, from their use of all-natural, cruelty-free products to their tradition of massaging the wooden knots out of neighborhood trees. They draw on their knowledge of international wellness techniques during soothing ayurvedic treatments that include abhyangam ritualistic massages and heat therapy with herbal oil. Jivan’s signature serenity massage combines Eastern stretches and acupressure with Western strokes and hot stones. This fusion of modalities exemplifies a willingness to seek out the most effective practices from diverse cultures to best relieve muscular tension. Each treatment takes place in a private, secluded room within a spa space whose warm reds, earthy tones, and lush indoor vegetation facilitate a relaxed mindset.
Spa Sydell traces its roots to 1982, when it opened in Buckhead with a vision of helping Atlantans ease away tension and escape the pressures of daily life. More than 30 years later, Spa Sydell has grown to seven locations while continuing its commitment to providing each customer with personalized attention to ensure superior service and quality.
Each of the spa’s outposts exhibits a unique personality—the larger facilities echo with the sounds of water trickling down fountain displays, soothing scents permeate the air, tropical flowers are placed with care, and the more intimate boutique locations host private treatment rooms in which botanical fragrances couple with the sounds of orchestral twee pop. Regardless of the locale, expect a relaxing, personalized massage experience in which a therapist tends to your individual aches and pains with soothing strokes. During facials, the spa’s aestheticians blend signature products individually selected and previously tested on the CEO.
At Youthtopia Med Spa, a skin-rejuvenation and total-body-wellness facility, an experienced mix of dietitians, registered nurses, and aestheticians helps to boost patrons' beauty with technology-driven treatments and professional skincare products. From among a wide menu of services, the staff whittles physiques with laser-lipo systems, turns back facial time clocks with medical peels and injectables, and hides evidence of coffee rings with teeth-whitening treatments.

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.
Drawing from a shelf filled with natural products from Decleor and REN, the friendly, client-focused staffers at Illuminations Spa work to bestow guests with glowing complexions and relaxed demeanors without using harsh or harmful substances. Chemical-free lotions and soothing aromatherapy enhance seven types of massages, each customized to fit a client’s particular issue, whether that’s sore muscles or deep-set knots. An organic neroli-and-grapefruit cream with an exfoliating guérande salt balm lays the foundation for one of more than five body treatments, and face treatments fight signs of aging by firming the skin with acupressure and lymphatic-drainage-massage techniques.
Amid Mezz Spa's serene 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.
