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.
All treatments last one hour and are administered by aestheticians who customize procedures to suit the particular skin type and belly button concavity of each client. During a celestial facial, clients are pampered with dual cleansing, steam therapy, gentle extraction, mask, and massage. The treatment balances skin tone, sloughs off dead cells, and purges pores of grease, grime, and misplaced roller-skates. The mineral salt scrub excavates deep beneath dermal strata to reveal smooth, glowing skin. Sink into a plush, heated bed to be slathered with mineral salt and then wiped clean with steam towels and kitten tongues. The treatment concludes with a warm shower, light massage, and rich body cream. Sea mud wraps detoxify, exfoliate, and nourish with seaweed, botanicals, and plant enzymes. Sealed in a warm, relaxing wrap of mineral clay, patients will feel like Cleopatra being fit for her custom-built sarcophagus. Those opting for a Swedish massage will be gently stroked with kneading and effleurage (gliding pressure applied by thumb pad or fingertip). Totally relax while circulation is stimulated and stress icicles melt into pristine mountain fresh water and edelweiss.
