Just as Zenergize's name balances the words zen and energize, the spa's massage therapists work to balance their clients' feelings of relaxation and invigoration. The stable of bodyworkers is proficient in a rainbow of massage techniques, which they pick and choose from to address the individual needs of their clients regardless of age, gender, or phase of life. During deep-tissue massages, therapists can focus on relieving chronic pain or helping athletes to heal after a debilitating injury. Lymphatic-drainage therapy helps to facilitate the body's natural detoxification processes with strokes tailored to clients' individual bodies and natural rhythms. Classic Swedish massages also bring profound relief from the stresses of everyday life. Though the center specializes in massage, the staff also performs a few carefully chosen aesthetic services including the Timeless Skin photofacial, which uses infrared light to stimulate new cell growth and repair sun-damaged or mature skin.
At Got Pain Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapist Roxanna Williamson customizes her therapeutic massage sessions to suit the needs of each client. Her one- to two-hour sessions moisturize the skin while releasing muscular tension with gentle strokes that glide over raw, organic coconut-oil massage lotion. Reflexology for the hands and feet is also included with each treatment.
Within a tranquil, private room, a massage therapist lightly sets smooth, heated stones along a client’s back. Nearby, a professional athlete discusses her chronic pain or injury-related soreness with a therapist, who tailors the pressure accordingly. These represent just a snippet of the day-to-day activities at Mercy's Touch Massage Clinic, where staffers reenergize bodies and minds with an array of massage modalities—including prenatal, Swedish, and deep tissue—as well as other calming services such as body wraps, aromatherapy, and advanced sheep-counting techniques.
Atlanta Bodytherapy Center's certified Rolfing practitioner, Mike Waefler, targets fasciae—tissues surrounding bones and muscles—as he attempts to restore clients' posture and health. The Rolfing treatment begins with a consultation, in which Waefler observes the body's movement while standing, walking, and reacting to a loss in Scrabble. Over the course of the Rolfing session, Mike stretches the fasciae with his fingers or knuckles as clients perform breathing exercises or stretches while lying, sitting, or standing. Untangling the fasciae aims to relieve chronic pain, increase range of motion, and improve the effectiveness of karate chops in everyday situations. For sessions, clients should wear minimal clothing; a bathing suit or underwear is best.
Atlanta Serenity Massage's licensed providers soothe chronic soreness through medically informed treatments that target deep tissues. After a preliminary consultation to evaluate personal needs, clients rest on padded tables as hands terraform the body's landscape back into a comfortable state, eliminating knots, realigning bones, and plucking weeds from muscular plains. The sessions can provide a degree of relief for a spread of conditions, including sports or work injuries, compressed nerves, and migraine headaches. Attendees should wear soft clothes or workout attire to stay comfortable while performing the short exercises and monologues from Flashdance that accompany treatments.
Skincare has come a long way from homemade facial treatments that involved medieval-sounding anti-pimple procedures. Atlanta Eye Candy staffers embrace the ever-evolving trends in skincare and eyelash extensions to give their clients the most current treatments and natural-looking enhancements. Within, highly trained medical aestheticians and certified laser technicians perform a sweeping array of procedures, such as age-defying microdermabrasions. Licensed makeup artists decorate lids and lips with temporary or permanent makeup, and the staff's certified master lash stylist enhances the power of both winks and eye rolls with Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions.
Across 32 locations, Facelogic Spa's licensed massage therapists and aestheticians customize beautifying services from an arsenal of soothing strategies using products from Éminence Organic Skin Care and Facelogic's own skincare brand. Their proprietary line fuses botanically sourced nourishment with cutting-edge dermatological formulas and anti-aging serums. These products fuel 15 different facials as well as more than 10 add-ons, including masks, peels, and cucumber puppets.
