Lyn Ross wrote the book on skincare. Or at least one or two of the books, cumulatively. She's authored numerous articles and textbook chapters on the topic, spreading the knowledge she's gained since opening her first natural skincare clinic in 1975, when most dermatologists still advised moisturizing with a rich crude-oil blend. In 1989, she established Institut’ DERMed—at once an Atlanta med-spa, a line of cosmeceutical products, and an aesthetician-training center.
Today, Ross and her staff make clients’ skin glow in a 3,000-square-foot facility filled with 11 private treatment rooms. At the College of Advanced Aesthetics, also headquartered in Atlanta, they train estheticians, cosmetologists, and doctors in product use and skin-treatment plans. Perhaps the element most central to Lyn's practice is her range of natural skin-care products crafted from concentrated but non-prescription active ingredients. The cleansers, serums, and exfoliants are formulated not just with carefully selected ingredients, but with carefully selected molecules—the company’s chemists reconfigure the very atoms of active substances so that the compounds will better penetrate the skin.
We have 9 rooms that are for massages, facials, waxing, eye treatments, eye lash extensions, body treatments, tanning bed, mystic spray tan, and hydro-colon cleansing. We also have two infrared saunas, showers available, and a relaxation room.
Mia Kytle has a deep love of nature, and her passion for natural healing methods led her to Georgia Massage Institute. Upon receiving her license and national certification, she honed her skills at a local spa before founding Spa Revolution. When Mia kneads sinews, she combines aromatherapy and handmade bodycare products with organic and vegan ingredients. Her toolbox of techniques includes Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massage. To loosen stubborn knots, she integrates neuromuscular techniques with myofascial-release and trigger-point therapy. When Mia isn't cosseting her clients, she avoids using caustic chemicals by scouring her facilities with all-natural cleaning products, instead of supernatural cleaning products, which are just full of ectoplasmic goo.
The nationally-certified massage therapists at Serenity Wholistic Wellness have trained under chiropractors and nutritionists, but they also go the extra mile for client health by maintaining CPR/AED Heartsaver certifications. Inside the wellness center, they upgrade traditional massage modalities with hot and cold stones, stretching, cupping, aromatherapy, and rain-drop therapy, which soothes bodies better than laying outside during a thunderstorm. They also pamper feet with rose-petal foot soaks and warm brown-sugar foot scrubs.
For those who wish to look as good as they feel after a treatment, Serenity Wholistic Wellness hosts a boutique stocked with jewelry, custom oils and lotions, purses, and wallets.
