Anuschka Jivan Wellness takes holistic healing seriously. The massage center espouses a philosophy that considers environmental stewardship an integral aspect of holistic wellness; after all, the earth—with its interconnected web of goings-on—is also an organism that needs caring for. This philosophy guides all aspects of the therapists’ practice, from their use of all-natural, cruelty-free products to their tradition of massaging the wooden knots out of neighborhood trees. They draw on their knowledge of international wellness techniques during soothing ayurvedic treatments that include abhyangam ritualistic massages and heat therapy with herbal oil. Jivan’s signature serenity massage combines Eastern stretches and acupressure with Western strokes and hot stones. This fusion of modalities exemplifies a willingness to seek out the most effective practices from diverse cultures to best relieve muscular tension. Each treatment takes place in a private, secluded room within a spa space whose warm reds, earthy tones, and lush indoor vegetation facilitate a relaxed mindset.
The founders of Body Medical Contouring—president Jonathan Penn and creative director Heather Hohweiler—set out on a year of travel and research, hoping to discover the latest noninvasive and minimally invasive body-sculpting treatments. After achieving success they opened a facility, which Hohweiler designed and marked with Romanesque white columns and green topiary-like accents. But Hohweiler didn't join Penn on his sojourn merely because she wanted to create a luxurious medical aesthetics center—it was personal. She experienced firsthand the effectiveness of the services their center now offers, having lost an impressive 72 pounds. As she explained on Atlanta & Company, Hohweiler used a potent combination of mesotherapy—a series of injections that metabolize fat deposits—and carbossi therapy, which employs medical-grade carbon dioxide gas to increase circulation and eliminate fat cells.
To perform their wrinkle- and fat-ousting protocols, Penn and Hohweiler assembled a team of medical experts and time travelers from the future. Medical director Dr. Tosha Rogers and two registered nurses target stubborn fat and cellulite with Exilis radio-frequency sessions or via the hCG injectable diet and B-12 lipotropic injections. The med spa's cutting-edge treatments have been featured in numerous local media, including The Atlantan Brides magazine and the Fashionado blog.
Amid The Med Spa at Stat’s olive-green walls, physicians and aestheticians work side-by-side to rid skin of wrinkles, sun damage, and other beauty concerns. Aestheticians ply their techniques at the surface of the skin, customizing facials and exfoliating dead skin cells with diamond microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Physicians take a more internal role as they unfold wrinkles with dermal fillers, address excessive sweating, or smooth spider veins.
The certified technicians at Spa Degas boost the radiance levels of customers with a range of indulgent facials, chemical peels, waxing services, body-slimming wraps, and eyelash extensions. Additionally, permanent eyeliner, eyebrows, and lip color keep makeup perfect on skin during everything from workouts to sleeping to bobbing for apples. Spa Degas also keeps heads warm and looking great with a selection of human-hair wigs.
