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.
Nail artisans at Art's Nails and Orchid Nails lavish attention on fingers and toes by filing and polishing their keratinous ornaments in indulgent mani-pedis. In the regular mani-pedi, deft fingers buff nail surfaces until they gleam; the deluxe digit makeover adds a sea-salt scrub that pampers skin like the warm caress of a friendly anemone, as well as a paraffin dunking that grants skin silky smoothness and a callus treatment that transforms hardened soles into attractive foot pillows. While reclining in the comfort of the salon's cozy pedicure chairs, relaxed guests can rest assured that their fingers and toes will be kept dexterous enough to thumb wrestle a stenographer. For an additional $15, customers may upgrade to gel nails with either option.
Licensed aesthetician and Aveda graduate Angela Clark partners an ingrained passion for skincare with something a little more tangible: high-quality products and high-tech equipment. She incorporates Aveda and Image Skincare products into her facials, which deep-clean skin in anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes. She also brandishes the NuFace Galvanic System to fight aging skin, sending microcurrents deep into skin to tone, tighten, and aid in the absorption of products.
If makeup artist Mel J. had a signature look, it would be flawless skin. All her clients look airbrushed after a session in her chair. It helps that before applying any makeup to the face, she cleanses, tones skin, and hydrates skin, ensuring that she has a clean, smooth canvas to work with. Once skin is luminous, Mel smokes out eyes and paints lips with bright lipsticks or creates a more natural look.
The technicians at La Pure Day Spa grant clients' beauty and relaxation behests by performing everything from therapeutic massages to medical-grade skincare treatments. Inside the skincare clinic, aestheticians nourish complexions with facials harvested from Éminence Organic Skin Care products. Glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids power seven 30-minute chemical peels, which, like linemen in a hall of mirrors, each try to tackle something different, including acne, dryness, and hyperpigmentation. Massage therapy chases tension from tendons with the popular gliding strokes of the Swedish technique or the intense, clinical manipulations of the deep-tissue modality. A licensed physician fills gravity-stricken skin with Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane injections, and makeup artists decorate faces with Jane Iredale mineral makeup so that clients don’t have to accentuate their best features by circling them with crayons.
The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Healing Garden Wellness Centre & Spa alleviate stressed physiques with soothing 60-minute massages and skin treatments for any complexion. The team's beauty arsenal is stocked with the anti-aging Hungarian blends of Estrea skincare products and the natural formulas of Botanical Science Technologies products. With these in hand, skinsmiths handle the faces of gentlemen and teens or imbue womanly kissers with vitamin C and the smoothness of a wax sculpture of Frank Sinatra. To ease deep, chronic aches and especially tight muscles, clients can call upon seasoned stress easers to soothe tissues located beneath surface muscles with deep-tissue work. Swedish massages are also available to melt away tension, bolster lymphatic circulation, and improve the body's ability to impersonate a Celtic knot with increased range of motion.
