Visitors to Scarlett's Retreat Day Spa & Boutique aren't sure if they've stepped back in time or onto a movie set. Surrounded by ornately patterned furniture, fireplaces, and classic portraits, they receive spa treatments in a late 19th-century home. Southern hospitality is a common thread between the decor and the service—the aroma of mint juleps drifts from mani-pedi stations, and roses infuse foot soaks and body wraps with flowery scents. A Victorian tub helps preserve the art of bath rituals, an antiquated practice that once signified opulence, much like installing a subwoofer on your riding saddle. Today, the spa's Georgia Sweet Tea tub ritual steeps bodies in tea and brown sugar to inspire total serenity.

The certified massage therapists and aestheticians prioritize natural ingredients; blueberries, rosemary, and cucumber infuse facials and peels, and the boutique carries products from glo minerals and Éminence Organic Skin Care for clients to take home, alongside robes and handmade neck pillows. For prolonged bouts of relaxation, packages pool services into themed combinations appealing to both men and women. For example, the Mister Butler package features a massage, an aromatherapy tub ritual, and a complimentary cigar and liqueur.

The therapists at Spacific Healing help their clients discover new levels of relaxation through detoxifying body treatments and soothing skin services. Every massage therapist on staff has at least five years of experience and the specialized skills to knead tension from expectant mothers, senior citizens, and circus strongmen. Colonics, ear candling, and biocleanse footbaths pull impurities from within the body, and the infrared sauna and Alpha 2010 pod relieve aches and boost circulation. Aestheticians pamper pores with facials and microdermabrasion treatments, as well as full body masks, wraps, and polishes.

Not content to practice only such familiar pain-relief techniques as deep-tissue and medical massage, the therapists at this house of healing also unleash polarity therapy, detox footbaths, and a meridian-based tapping method known as Emotional Freedom Technology, or EFT. Eight types of kneading spring from the fingers of the therapists, from the sustained pressure of myofascial release to the directional strokes of lymph drainage. Powered by a gentle electric current, ionic footbaths surround paws in polarity in an effort to collect negatively charged toxins and restore the body’s pH balance. Like people who decorate their lawns with thousands of needles to keep the grass healthy, EFT sessions take their inspiration from acupuncture. But instead of piercing energy points, therapists performing this treatment manipulate them manually, a method designed to combat anxiety, stress, and anger.
