A massage is more than a pampering treatment—it's a way to rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul. That's the mindset at DiamondsTouch Massage & Spa, where staffers strive to destress their clients with soothing handiwork, as well as with facials, detoxifying foot soaks, and nailcare. They also extend their services to groups getting ready for weddings, birthdays, or black-tie pig pickings.

A former nightclub, Club Kiss Salon & Spa still works hard to entertain its guests: they can drink virgin daiquiris, smoke hookahs, and watch live shows as well as getting beauty services. At the sleek, black bar with a white chandelier overhead, guests sip on virgin cocktails as staffers tend to nails. Exposed brick walls are now flanked with a row of white-framed mirrors for guests to admire new hairstyles thanks to cuts, weaves, and other styles. The salon also sells imported virgin hair—high-quality strands that keep the cuticle intact—for use in hair extensions and weaves.

Named in honor of both the month that it opened and the carefree summer liveliness that it represents, July Vitality Center is a place where massages and body treatments drive away stress no matter the season. Swedish massages relax the entire body with the help of gentle pressure and flowing strokes, and reflexology sessions hone in on pressure points on the hands and feet to improve immunity and balance energy levels. Several varieties of deep-tissue massage provide focused pressure to treat injuries and relieve chronic discomfort, and body wraps heal the skin with infusions of balms and moisturizers.

The décor of Knockouts mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—patrons look better when they leave. After a consultation with one of the scissor-handed stylists, your Heavyweight haircut will kick off with a relaxing shampoo. As a stylist snips, shaves, and shears, direct your attention toward the many flat-screens showing all the day's top sports and a few of its bottom ones, such as mixed martial horseshoes and the World's Slowest Man tournament. After the follicular wreckage is cleared with a second round of shampoo and a rinse, your stylist will treat you to a neck-tingling scalp massage before arranging head-strands to your specifications and shellacking them in place.

Most city dwellers hardly have time to tackle their long lists of responsibilities, let alone make time for themselves. But Yelena at Skin Logic Atlanta believes it's this hectic metropolitan lifestyle that makes regular spa visits so important. At the tranquil studio in upscale Buckhead, guests can kick back and forget their worries during one of seven customized facials, each of which begin with a thorough skin analysis to tailor the techniques to each complexion's unique issues. For full-body relaxation, a slate of body treatments—including the slimming and detoxifying Lay Down and Dream Body Wrap, which uses infrared energy to flush out impurities—both relax muscles and brighten exteriors. The spa also offers waxing treatments to sculpt brows, banish facial fuzz, or smooth body areas to cut precious seconds from grocery-shopping times.
