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.
Holistic Therapy Center of Georgia's health practitioner Daye Burnett welcomes anyone into the center, but is particularly committed to her work with mothers-to-be. Her arsenal of treatments allow her to help women during every stage of motherhood. Fertility massage can improve the chance of conception, prenatal massage targets pregnancy related pains, and the center's doula services provide support for women during their actual labor.

In The Mastery's sleek confines, brightened by red and lime-green walls as well as chandeliers formed of dangling baubles, a styling team chops locks into chic shapes, plying strands with deep conditioning, strengthening treatments, and Paul Mitchell products. The stylists use their hue expertise to talk to rainbows and augment locks with partial foils, corrective color, and custom dye jobs. They also relax clients during a signature Reluxe experience, which centers around a custom scalp massage based on an Asian five-count beat—developed exclusively for The Mastery by a professional massage therapist.
OM SPA's founder Omar Holmes began his career as a health and fitness coach. He first became aware of massage as a way to help his clients recover from or prevent injuries, but the more he learned about it, the more interested he became. Eventually, he realized he had a passion for the technique, and enrolled at the American Academy of Reflexology to being his education. He still uses the Flocco Method of reflexology in treatments, combining treatments of the hand, foot, and ear to relax the entire body. He rounds out his techniques with modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and lymphatic drainage.
Luna Massage's therapist sees her work as more than a means of physical or spiritual fulfillment. She sees it as a means of giving back to the community, of helping people attain their own private nirvana. Evidence of that mission can be seen in any of the services she performs, from private yoga sessions to herb-ball and Indian-rejuvenation massages. Most of the massage modalities take advantage of scented herbal oils, and all of them leave you feeling stronger, healthier, and more relaxed than a tranquilized sloth.
