Hamid Mohajir, a certified neuromuscular therapist, began his career at various large spas. As he worked, he continued to hear the dissatisfied rumblings of clients who wanted a therapist with an ongoing, personal familiarity with their particular health issues. With an eye toward providing that kind of dedication, Hamid left the realm of large spas and started Buckhead Healing Massage. He soothes bodies with a blend of multiple massage modalities, ranging from the gentle strokes of Swedish massage and the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage to the rehabilitating effects of sports massage.
To ensure that minds remain calm as he works tension out of bodies, photos and paintings of flowers soothe the senses along the warm green walls, which whisper calming lullabies as patients drift into a state of relaxation. Ethereal natural light filters through the fluttering, transparent curtains that line the entirely glass front.
At Creative Skin Care, medical aestheticians recognize the fundamental link between health and beauty. Extensive backgrounds in both cosmetic and clinical care have trained them to seek the root of beauty issues in the deeper well-being of the body. Complimentary skin analyses allow skin-care experts to eschew "quick fixes" and "iron helmets" for in-depth beautification campaigns that might incorporate massage, salicylic-acid treatments, and oxygenation. Aestheticians are masters of lasers, whether they are directing the Palomar IPL laser at little melanin bull's-eyes within hair follicles or wielding the Alma Harmony XL laser to rout spider veins with little discomfort and no downtime.
Certified massage therapists slather skin in organic products made with fruits and vegetables, working the botanical elements into the skin with gentle hand movements or massage tools. The staff also possesses mastery with Bongers— therapeutic instruments that mimic the impact of a child's fist. Aside from paddling taut muscles or snare drums, therapists arrange heated stones on sore muscles, apply a gentle touch to expectant mothers, and knead overused tissues on athletes. Each massage is tailored to the client's specific needs, and will restore bodies to a state of relaxed joyousness unlike any they’ve experienced since they got their braces removed.

Tiana named her massage studio The Wellness Sanctuary because she views it as a refuge or safe haven, where she helps clients recover from pain. She employs eight different modalities of massage to help her in this quest, from techniques designed to ease the aches of pregnant women to post-surgical methods that aid in recovery. She's pretty good at her work, too; she reports some clients were overcome by tears of joy after a session with her, and return again and again. "My clients are like my family," she says. Because her clients are so important to her, Tiana gets involved in community outreach programs. Through The Wellness Sanctuary, she works with nonprofits and other organizations to improve life beyond her studio.
Tucked within Saylah Threading and Day Spa, Kimochi Body N Sole Sanctuary sets guests on the path to serenity, guiding them down candlelit hallways as they make their way to one of several private treatment rooms. Music helps quiet the mind as trained massage therapists eliminate aches and tension using more than 15 styles of massage including lymphatic, hot stone, shiatsu, and cranial-sacral therapy. Each rejuvenating session can be doled out in 30-, 45-, 60-, 90-, or 120-minute increments, and all services include aromatherapy to encourage deeper relaxation. In addition to in-house massage services, the wellness center also offers foot soaks, ionic detox therapies, and manicures, as well as corporate chair massages that help undo pain brought on by being constantly sat upon.
At World Therapy Center, owner and massage therapist Tonya Jones
uses her 14 years of experience to exile aches and pains. Most of her services are forms of massage therapy, but she also offers facials and the body polish. Clients opting for a medical massage have the opportunity to pay with insurance, while those choosing the hot stone massage have the opportunity to write a thank you note to the fire-breathing dragon who heated the rocks before their appointment. World Therapy Center is also a boutique where salts, polishes, robes, and soaps bring the pampering experience home.
