Tiana named her massage studio The Wellness Sanctuary because she views it as a refuge or safe haven, where she helps clients recover from pain. She employs eight different modalities of massage to help her in this quest, from techniques designed to ease the aches of pregnant women to post-surgical methods that aid in recovery. She's pretty good at her work, too; she reports some clients were overcome by tears of joy after a session with her, and return again and again. "My clients are like my family," she says. Because her clients are so important to her, Tiana gets involved in community outreach programs. Through The Wellness Sanctuary, she works with nonprofits and other organizations to improve life beyond her studio.

The stylists at Xclusive hair studio cater to all hair types, with such services as natural hair extensions and weaves, no-lye relaxers, and corn rows. Collectively, the team has several decades of experience. And that experience has led them to rendering their diverse services with products by brands such as Redken and Paul Mitchell. Though hair is very much their specialty, the team also staffs a full-service day spa. They can refresh clients with a pore-cleansing facial or primp nails with an organic mani-pedi that garners hands and feet more attention than if they were located on one’s head and tummy, respectively.
The salon also helps regenerate hair for those who have lost it due to medical conditions. The services range from natural-looking wigs to full cranial prosthesis hairpieces, which are made with human hair and specially designed to look and feel like real hair.
Licensed massage therapist Rachel Taylor—aka Mahadevi in her role as a holistic healer—has witnessed firsthand the healing and transformative powers of massage and bodywork. A student of anatomy and an award-winning therapist, she works to help clients relax and heal using Thai massage, Reiki, and rehabilitation stretching at her Alpharetta studio. Clients come to her for all manner of readjustment, including getting their Chakra balanced, engaging in some guided meditation, or indulging in deep tissue massage. Under her skilled hands, chronic pain and stress rooted in muscles evaporates, and recurring ailments take their leave after sports massages. Also offering guided Bhakti Yoga sessions, Mahadevi helps her clients focus their minds while they learn mantras and practice rhythmic breathing.
Tucked within Saylah Threading and Day Spa, Kimochi Body N Sole Sanctuary sets guests on the path to serenity, guiding them down candlelit hallways as they make their way to one of several private treatment rooms.

In addition to in-house massage services, the wellness center also offers foot soaks, ionic detox therapies, and manicures, as well as corporate chair massages that help undo pain brought on by being constantly sat upon.
