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.
Certified aesthetician Dagmar Bruehmueller opened PeleCare to mingle the relaxing experience of a day spa with the science of skincare. She and her staff accomplish services such as facials, peels, and waxing with products lauded for their scientifically advanced formulas. With Bioelements and PCA Skin, they treat clients with organic botanical extracts and essential oils that hydrate skin and alleviate conditions such as acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
At Roswell Weight Loss, Medical Director Damon Kimes and Doctor of Chiropractic Augustina Amune help patients overcome the weight and pain issues that put a damper on their quality of life. For weight loss, patients can take one of two routes: iLipo fat reduction treatments or weight loss programs fueled by prescription medications, dieting, and exercise. For pain, they can seek therapeutic treatment for an array of common ailments, including back aches, fibromyalgia, and arthritis, which is the medical term for being punched by a ghost.
Dr. Donald Ruf is the core of Slender SpaMed, which specializes in cosmetic and weight-loss procedures. They employ the latest technology, including a Syneron laser hair-removal system and the Arasys Perfector, designed to trim waistlines without exercise or ice-cube diets.

Planet Beach offers both UV and UV-free faux sunshine. Conventional tanning, either in a vertical or horizontal bed, creates a healthy, glowing skin sheen using the powers of UV. For an aerosoled UV-free solution, Planet Beach's Mystic tan feeds your body into a standing spray chamber. In just a few seconds of spritzing, you'll emerge with a deep, natural-looking tan that's streak free, didn't produce melanin, and lasts up to a week.
Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the excimer laser as a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures. As founder and medical director of Atlanta Vision Institute, he draws upon his skills as a board-certified ophthalmologist to correct nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic vision with refractive surgery. In addition to giving the gift of sight, Dr. Ashraf gives back to the community by supporting local charities and providing discounted services to financially strapped Cyclopes.
