Healing hands helm Relax’s soul- and sinew-soothing therapeutic bodywork, deftly cycling through 11 modalities that encompass everything from full-body Swedish techniques to targeted neuromuscular therapy. Relax’s recently expanded space showcases a pristine trio of new treatment rooms, including a space designed for couples massages and post-massage swing dancing.
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.
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.
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.
Dr. Florence Akinwumiju, the health director at Amazing Natural Health & Wellness, has spent 20 years as a medical nurse and a doctor of natural health. That doesn't mean she has always been healthy herself, though?she struggled with high blood pressure for many years. Ultimately, she decided her Western medications were part of the problem, treating just her surface symptoms and creating myriad unwanted side effects. This prompted her to shift her treatment, as well as her practice, toward natural vitamins and supplements geared to balancing the body.
She never looked back. Today, she helps patients tackle symptoms from migraines to asthma with vitamins and supplements, often tailored to the specific patients via Zyto assessment. During the noninvasive assessment, which takes only five minutes, patients rest their hand in a hand cradle while a machine scans their physiques, then spits out supplement recommendations. However, other treatments approach holistic health from other angles. Ionic footbaths, for instance, draw toxins out through through the soles of the feet more effectively than suction-cup shoes, and colonics flush out toxins with up to 16 gallons of purified water.
