Tranquility Touch Spa & Wellness’s soothing oasis serves as a backdrop for relaxing massages, skin treatments, and group spa parties that incorporate Bella Earth’s natural products. Therapists employ gentle Swedish strokes or firm deep-tissue pressure to target stress, and both modalities can be augmented with the relaxing wafts of aromatherapy, tension-alleviating reflexology, or a hot-stone treatment that give disenfranchised skipping stones a chance to strategically warm physiques. The salon also offers a select menu of skin-refining treatments, unveiling radiant complexions with facials and exfoliating scrubs for the back and feet. Aestheticians also host BYOB massage parties, which combine home-brought libations with massages for the neck and shoulders, feet, and hands, sparking joyful dispositions within pampered attendees.
Under the same roof, children of all ages navigate a kaleidoscopic swirl of spinning palm trees, multicolored crawlspaces, and a foam factory that sends lightweight foam spheres careening into the festive atmosphere. This dizzying assortment of kinetic equipment engages children at every turn at Kids Planet, whether they're burrowing their way through an asymmetrical obstacle course, swishing down winding slides, hitching a ride on the balloon merry-go-round, or empathizing with a pet in the hamster wheel. Partitioned playrooms accommodate kids of all ages, including a room for children aged 1–3, and parents can keep themselves entertained while their kids are engaged in safe play by connecting to the free WiFi.
The Passport Program currently serves students at Point South Middle School and is in the process of expanding to an additional 3 middle schools in Clayton County, and plans to sponsor students in the FIRST Robotics Competition, which hosts teams of students who learn from professional engineers to build and program robots. The competition aims to ignite passion for math and science among students and teach them to use sophisticated hardware and software. Successful teams get the chance to compete at the national level and win scholarships. The Jeryme Brown & Mitchell Smalls Foundation requires additional funding to purchase a Lego robotics kit that provides students with the tools necessary to build their competition robot.
Helmed by a team of local artists, Your Artistic Spirits holds informal visual-arts consortia in local venues such as Bier Brewery, Black Swan Brewpub, and Bodega. At each location, they welcome participants of all skill levels and disciplines to sip wine, beer, or spirits as they make art focused in a range of artistic styles, from neoclassical busts to avant-garde booms. Instructors guide attendees through step-by-step instruction to create original works in one chosen medium, such as acrylics, watercolors, sculpting clay, or papier-mâché. When not conducting public classes and private parties, artistic staffers lead team-building workshops and art-therapy programs for children and adults.
Events by Ardeen's tagline is simple: "Where we keep the party going!" But the execution of a monumental bash can be somewhat more complicated, as anyone who's ever tried to throw a successful birthday party for their cat knows well. That's why the party planner keeps a close eye on every detail of special events. For example, she sets brides and grooms at ease by handling everything from confirming vendors before the big day to sending bridesmaids down the aisle on cue during the ceremony.
