With a medley of massages, facials, and detoxifying treatments, WellSpa Suites' experienced therapists aim to restore bodies to their optimal factory settings. During massage, therapists conjure deep-tissue and Swedish modalities for relaxation, or trigger reflexology points to spur full-body rejuvenation, increase circulation, and boost lymphatic systems. To prepare faces for the faces that they'll meet, aestheticians customize treatments that aim to scatter acne, uproot blackheads, or blast dry visages with a dose of hydration, leaving skin glowing like a lighthouse built to keep ships from steering into faces at night. The studio keeps bodies running smoothly with gentle colon hydrotherapy, and bolsters musculature while shedding fat with yoga and Zumba sessions.
Sky-blue walls, hardwood floors the color of sand, a mirror shaped like the sun with flares stabbing outward, small paintings of flowers and leaves seemingly scattered by the wind across the walls?such accents add up to create a breezy, beach-like feel that overtakes patrons? senses when they step into Bliss Hair Salon and Day Spa.
This ambiance permeates throughout, following feet as they meander to the nail lounge, where instead of pedicure chairs a plush, pillow-lined sofa supports clients as they dip their toes into baths on tile platforms. Beyond, inside private rooms, aestheticians pamper faces and physiques with spa treatments, wrapping torsos in seaweed formulas and warming backbones with hot-stone massages.
Before these are the styling stations, where products from Phyto, Pureology, and Aveda enhance hair with natural ingredients, including plant extracts and color milked from rainbows.
After beginning her massage therapy career in Grenada, Tinasha Gray decided to a bring a piece of that calming, tropical oasis environment to Douglasville by founding Source of Wellness Massage. She and her fellow massage therapists provide their clients brief escapes from everyday life, helping them discover a sense of holistic balance in their lives. Drawing from a wide array of specialized modalities?including everything from Swedish strokes and aromatherapy to reflexology and trigger-point therapy?the team alleviates the chronic aches and discomfort that can be caused by pent-up stress or injury. Though massage is the spa's main focus, the aestheticians also pamper visitors with indulgent cosmetic services, such as personalized facials, back facials, and waxing treatments that leave skin as smooth and hair-free as a freshly shaved manta ray.
An aesthetician gently scrubs a mixture of Dead Sea salts and moisturizing oil over a client's skin, revealing younger and fresher layers of cells; in another room, a massage therapist places heated stones onto tense muscles, dispersing the stress they've been harboring for months. Scenarios such as these are common at Evene Day Spa, where the staff specializes in both relaxation and beautifying treatments. The spa's menu also includes European facials which allot one hour to eliminate dirt and exfoliate to clear the pores. In addition to improving skin condition, the spa's aestheticians keep faces looking polished with permanent cosmetics for the eyes, eyebrows, or lips, leaving time in the mornings for more important endeavors, such as baking homemade Lucky Charms.

Though its beauty experts fine tune bodies with such services as Brazilian butt lifts and face-lifts, Body Sculpt is not a plastic surgery center. Rather than reaching for the scalpel during Brazilian butt lifts, med-spa techs rely on a combination of triangle- and lymphatic-massage. Similarly, they deploy non-invasive radio-frequency energy to smooth and tighten skin during face-lifts.
The med spa's staffers also help people lose weight through nonsurgical treatments, including ultrasonic cavitation body sculpting and weight-loss plans that introduce clients to low glycemic-index foods. Plus, they administer relaxing spa services, including facials and seaweed wraps. For folks who'd rather learn to beautify themselves, aestheticians lead classes where they teach patrons that blue eyes look best with copper eyeshadow, green eyes with purple eyeshadow, and yellow eyes with red face paint.
