Jody fixes skin problems for the faces that pass through the doors of Salon 506. A microdermabrasion wand or miniature belt sander sloughs off layers of dead skin cells, leaving a healthy glow behind. She also arms herself with a squadron of Aveda products––including the radiance-inducing Perfecting Plant Peel––to uproot blackheads, zap away excess oil, and diminish the appearance of fine lines.
One look at Rituals’ menu of spa services tells clients there’s a nurturing or beautifying treatment for most any body part, covering the likes of hair design, mani-pedis, hair removal, and detoxifying footbaths. Facials—such as the Coconut Bliss facial—moisturize and repair skin, and imbue it with nutrients. Aestheticians also wield cosmetic LED lights that rewind the clock on aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making skin think it now lives in a disco. The staff also includes licensed massage therapists who knead Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Armed with pharmaceutical-grade products, Creek Stone Med Spa's professionals help clients combat the signs of aging and escape the stresses of everyday life.

At the Thomasville location, beauty specialists pamper clients literally from head to toe with spa treatments including hair straightening, skincare services with Hungarian ingredients, and pedicures with Éminence Organic scrubs. Physician-assisted weightloss programs and aesthetic medical treatments are also available here.
The staff at Simply Sassy Kids Spa knows that children aren't immune to stress, whether it's caused by school, sports, or convincing their parents to eat broccoli. That's why its colorful, pastel-hued salon aims to relax young girls and instill them with positive self-images. They accomplish this through services that add kid-friendly touches to spa classics, such as mani-pedis with bubblegum hand soaks and fizzy, ice-cream-scented footbaths. The pint-sized pamperings—which also include updos and makeup application—delight girls during everyday visits as well as parties, which let kids nibble cupcakes atop cushy beanbag chairs.
Between her passion for massage and her gregarious personality, Kate Heriot has much to share in the way of healing. That’s why she founded MyMassage, where she kneads away knots and encourages her trained staff to expand their already considerable muscle-mending repertoires with new techniques. Ask Kate about the benefits of massage therapy and she will likely expound at length on its ability to ease tension from working long days at the office and heal muscles injured while carrying one’s boss to and from the bathroom.
