At Whole Essential 4 U Massage Studio, therapists excel in many different styles of massage, each of which can be augmented with indulgent add-ons and extras. While clients enjoy a relaxing Swedish massage, multiple masks can help tighten skin on the face or around the eyes. Aromatherapy is included with each type of massage, including deep tissue sessions and hot stone massages, which call upon the therapeutic properties of heat to help release endorphins and decrease cramping caused by arthritis. On top of in-studio treatments, the therapists can also take their massage tables on the road for events as well as for treatments administered at their clients' homes, hotels, offices, or panic rooms.
A bicycle leans against the wall in the Anthea Spa lobby, its basket filled with flowers. This touch of decor might seem out of place, but it's actually a nod to the spa's name—anthea translates to "flower" in Greek—and to its penchant for all-natural products. These products find their way into nine varieties of facials, which rely on enzymes and aromatherapy or employ European exfoliation techniques and high-frequency currents. The aestheticians also draw on herbs, healing muds, and oils to refresh skin and relax muscles during massages and body treatments. Anthea Spa also treats fingers and toes to classic and Shellac mani-pedis; the latter protects nails from chips and sock puppets prone to nervous biting.
The staff at Heavenly Healing Hands Massage Therapy strive to deliver the most pampering massage possible, corralling comforting indulgences such as soft-topped, heated massage tables or a warmed neck roll. The décor of this one-room oasis located in Beachwood is inspired by Georgia's picturesque Tybee Island, with sky-blue walls and sand-colored curtains that call to mind the relaxing seascape. Beside bowls overflowing with colorful seashells lie smooth stones that massage therapists often heats and incorporates into treatments to help loosen tension or keep suddenly stress-less bodies from floating away.
Inside the U.S. Bank Building sits Europa by Sasha Salon & Spa, bedecked in marble fixtures and vivid paintings that glow under soothing spa lighting. Aestheticians help faces slough off dead skin cells through exfoliation and imbue cheeks with moisture and the motivation to finally finish their novels. Massage therapists knead sore tissues, and expert colorists enhance mop tops with color treatments, allowing hair tones to match a new outfit or freshly reupholstered couches. Other services include manicures, formal updos, makeup applications, and sauna sessions.
Creative Beauty Salon & Spa offers a variety of beautifying services within a tranquil, stress-busting environment. Let trained aestheticians expertly cleanse hands and feet during a mani-pedi; using their own grasping appendages, they'll shape nails, clip cuticles, and exfoliate away dry skin and calluses. Soothing limb massages shake up and release bottled tension bubbling under the skin surface, and a coat of polish seals in a newly obtained sense of calm. Nails, feet, and hands will gleam like sunlight reflected off the surface of a stately flying toaster.
