Not far from the bubbling waters of Fountain Center's outdoor fountain sits the entrance to Fountain Spa, a boutique day spa helmed by massage therapist Vicki Economou. The quiet courtyard outside serves as a fitting prelude to each spa experience, during which Vicki?s team of massage therapists and beauty technicians encourage whole-body wellness with holistic treatments and natural products.
Small batches of ilike organic skin care products draw their potency from blended fruits and veggies; the spa?s aesthetician calls upon these naturally derived concoctions during four facials that focus on deep cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, and overall pampering.

Led by Lindsay Senalik, Doctor of Chiropractic, the licensed joint-crackers at Atlantic Chiropractic attend to misaligned spines and tight muscles with traditional chiropractic and muscle-work techniques. Tension and tight knots succumb to professionally soothing ministrations during an hour-long Swedish massage, which blankets the muscles with long, gentle strokes, whisking away bothersome kinks and quieting stress like the mute button on a baby. Spines prone to pain and discomfort prepare to sing with relief during a one-hour chiropractic exam and consultation, in which the doctor examines misplaced spinal bones to lay out a plan of attack for conquering corporeal problems. Once the chiropractor identifies problem areas and assigns each its appropriate silly nickname, three adjustments of one to five spinal regions aim to ease aches and pains.
Second-generation chiropractor Dr. David Avard, who is proficient in spinal manipulation and soft-tissue therapy, aims to assuage a range of bodily ailments using natural healthcare techniques. Dr. Avard personally consults with patients to investigate causes of corporeal discomfort before engineering custom treatment plans designed to diminish or remove aches lurking throughout the body. In addition to lifestyle counseling, Dr. Avard also offers nutritional support to clients looking to cultivate good eating habits or build life-size replicas of the food pyramid.
Licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and a Georgia native, Isa Holloway, who accrued expertise under the tutelage of Southwest Acupuncture College's Doctors of Oriental Medicine, facilitates full-body holistic healing with the strategic application of tiny needles during acupuncture treatments. Sessions aim to alleviate health woes—including allergies and sleep dysfunctions caused by recurring nightmares of cookie monsters under the bed—and additional pampering, such as topical herbs, hot tea, foot acupressure, and guided meditation, further encourage overall wellbeing. Alternatively, cosmetic acupuncture treatments may encourage the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, and patients have the option to pair sessions with microcurrent or light energies to further vivify faces.
