After beginning her massage therapy career in Grenada, Tinasha Gray decided to a bring a piece of that calming, tropical oasis environment to Douglasville by founding Source of Wellness Massage. She and her fellow massage therapists provide their clients brief escapes from everyday life, helping them discover a sense of holistic balance in their lives. Drawing from a wide array of specialized modalities?including everything from Swedish strokes and aromatherapy to reflexology and trigger-point therapy?the team alleviates the chronic aches and discomfort that can be caused by pent-up stress or injury. Though massage is the spa's main focus, the aestheticians also pamper visitors with indulgent cosmetic services, such as personalized facials, back facials, and waxing treatments that leave skin as smooth and hair-free as a freshly shaved manta ray.
A massage has many benefits, including increasing range of motion, relieving muscle aches, and boosting blood circulation. But a massage at Refresh Body Work is especially focused on relaxation. That's because its certified massage therapists knead bodies, faces, and feet with a variety of modalities, including reflexology, Swedish, and hot stone. The staff also offers packages that incorporate traditional Chinese medicine into each massage, addressing a wide range of physical and emotional needs.
Gina Hinson strives to empower women by improving their health and wellness. At Total You Wellness, she does so by flexing her expertise in fitness and massage therapy, as well as nutritional counseling and fitness coaching. Post-workout, one of Gina's soothing massages can leave muscles feeling more relaxed than a snail traveling through a speed trap.
Sky-blue walls, hardwood floors the color of sand, a mirror shaped like the sun with flares stabbing outward, small paintings of flowers and leaves seemingly scattered by the wind across the walls?such accents add up to create a breezy, beach-like feel that overtakes patrons? senses when they step into Bliss Hair Salon and Day Spa.
This ambiance permeates throughout, following feet as they meander to the nail lounge, where instead of pedicure chairs a plush, pillow-lined sofa supports clients as they dip their toes into baths on tile platforms. Beyond, inside private rooms, aestheticians pamper faces and physiques with spa treatments, wrapping torsos in seaweed formulas and warming backbones with hot-stone massages.
Before these are the styling stations, where products from Phyto, Pureology, and Aveda enhance hair with natural ingredients, including plant extracts and color milked from rainbows.
In a homey environment enhanced by decorative foliage, wicker furniture, and rocking chairs, Therapeutic Massage's licensed league of ache-alleviators prevails against body soreness by employing safe and effective massage techniques.
