Spa Sydell traces its roots to 1982, when it opened in Buckhead with a vision of helping Atlantans ease away tension and escape the pressures of daily life. More than 30 years later, Spa Sydell has grown to seven locations while continuing its commitment to providing each customer with personalized attention to ensure superior service and quality.
Each of the spa’s outposts exhibits a unique personality—the larger facilities echo with the sounds of water trickling down fountain displays, soothing scents permeate the air, tropical flowers are placed with care, and the more intimate boutique locations host private treatment rooms in which botanical fragrances couple with the sounds of orchestral twee pop. Regardless of the locale, expect a relaxing, personalized massage experience in which a therapist tends to your individual aches and pains with soothing strokes. During facials, the spa’s aestheticians blend signature products individually selected and previously tested on the CEO.
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.
Majestic Medical Touch Spa owners Jimmy Little and Malea Moore met while attending the International School of Skin, Nailcare & Massage Therapy. Like a mouse that scratches behind an elephant’s ear in exchange for protection, the two decided to join forces, lending their specialized talents to provide clients with a full range of skin and bodycare treatments.
Jimmy, a professional aesthetician, specializes in advanced bodywork techniques and corrective skincare such as advanced custom peels for different skin types. Likewise, as a licensed aesthetician, Malea specializes in corrective skincare and participates in ongoing studies of reflexology and advanced machines. Her treatments are developed to relax, renew, and detoxify the skin.
Atlanta Serenity Massage’s fleet of trained massage therapists lavishes attention on aching musculature using a plethora of muscle-maneuvering techniques. One of eight experienced massage maestros learned in the arts and ionic columns of dorsal architecture realigns under-the-surface fibers with a deep-tissue massage, relieving persistent pains and reworking muscles into cohesive structures. In a one-hour Swedish or therapeutic massage, soothing hands rigorously knead sinews to erase stresses and minimize pain epicenters with long strokes and pinpointed kneading. Toes and feet act as liaisons between reflexologists and tense bodily regions as Morse code eviction notices—delivered via pressure points—chase away aches and pains elsewhere. Client duos can receive their dermal kneadings side by side during a couples massage in the style of their choice. The spa’s low-lit treatment rooms cater to all the senses with aromatic scents, a smattering of soothing candles, and a feng shui layout designed to maximize relaxation and divert circus parade routes to other thoroughfares.
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.
