Amid sky-blue and ocean-green walls, ReNu Day Spa specialists perform an array of spa services—from soothing hot-stone massages to replenishing facials. Nail technicians pamper hands and feet with luxurious manicures and pedicures while their clients relax in cushy armchairs.
The therapists at Body Kneads Therapeutic Massage draw on five different modalities as they soothe tension and ease injuries. While traditional Swedish massage unravels tension with gliding kneads, deep-tissue massage targets specific regions of pain. Hot-stone therapy employs warm, smooth stones?and sometimes cold stones?to loosen knots and release endorphins. Sports massage helps active muscles prepare for and unwind from exertion. In addition to nurturing pinched shoulders back to health, rotator-cuff therapy makes it possible for clients to move arms more easily without injury.
The licensed massage therapists at Refresh and Restore have worked their therapeutic magic on triathletes and Olympians, but their primary focus is on everyday people suffering from chronic tension. Knotted muscles slacken under flowing Swedish strokes and indulgent add-ons such as hot stones and essential oils. Guests can also solicit a massage therapist for a specialty couples massage, ideal for married couples on an anniversary or superheroes and villains seeking to let bygones by bygones.
Kandice Bell boasts a BA in journalism. She has an MBA. Yet she couldn't argue with the fulfillment she felt when she hosted her first spa party for girls. After seeing the way the girls lit up, Kandice realized a new career path was in order, and she opened Simply Gorgeous Parties & Events. The mobile spa throws glamorous parties for girls as young as 3, complete with costumes, tiaras, and spa services such as age-appropriate mani-pedis, facials, and makeovers.
Posh Salon and Spa’s staff of beauty specialists fuse their respective expertise in hair, nails, massage, and skincare to grant clients with all-encompassing image enhancement. In the nail area, visitors melt into black pedicure thrones as nail technicians enhance natural mani-pedi treatments with exfoliating foot scrubs and hot towels. Meanwhile, aestheticians unearth glowing skin with five types of facials and higher-tech amenities, such as microdermabrasion and Endermologie cellulite-reduction treatments. Bright sunlight streams in from the salon's floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminating stylists as they twirl tendrils into elegant updos, highlight strands to create more depth, and add length with hair extensions and fast-forward buttons.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
