Esthetician Jena Berenberg founded Wax & Wane Waxing Salon with a simple goal: to transform waxing from being an uncomfortable appointment to a positive experience for her clients. She leads a team of experienced technicians, who offer detailed, judgment-free services along with education that can help clients maintain and care for their skin.
At Mansion on Forsyth Park, Poseidon isn't the rageful god of the sea who made Odysseus's life extremely difficult. Instead, it's a spa with the opposite mission: soothing all who visit. Past a reception area with gauzy curtains and sea-blue lighting, relaxation experts perform body, skin, and nail treatments in private rooms.
Of course, many of these treatments have an oceanic theme. The Tranquil Sea Odyssey, for example, cocoons clients in a body wrap while a warm-stone facial massage enriches the skin with phytonutrients. Other services conclude with a cleansing Vichy Shower, and add-ons such as an ocean foot polish or an aqua gel mask elevate treatments to the next level of pampering. The spa even has its own 24-hour cardio fitness facility, as well as steam showers for a post-workout rinse or a pre-workout lesson on how liquids turn to gases.
Savvy Savannah Tours founders Rebecca King and Cyndie Parmerter pinpointed a problem with local tours: guests’ lack of connection to the content. Determined to bridge the gap between guides’ narratives and visitors’ imaginations without connecting their brains via electrodes, they designed a new brand of walking tour that sometimes incorporates interactive technology. The Scenes of Savannah Past guides are outfitted with iPads that display retro pictures of Savannah as they pass the locales in modern day. But other tours, such as the culinary Eat it and Like it or beer-tasting Savannah Suds, let the southern flavor of the city speak for itself.
During the scenic strolls of Savannah Tour Walks LLC, tourists and locals alike take in the stunning sights and rich history of Georgia's oldest city. Entertaining, knowledgeable guides lead parties through haunted sites during ghost tours, show off stunning live oaks and riverfront scenery during history walks, or lead guests to local watering holes during pub crawls.
With more than 20 years of chiropractic experience between them, Doctors Kevin and Gina Brown promote wellness and cultivate corporeal fortitude through a range of natural backbone-balancing treatments. During AquaMed dry hydrotherapy, clients remain fully clothed and control the massage, which deploys jets of water to soothe coarse dorsals without the awkwardness of donning inflatable water wings. First-time adjustees begin with a comprehensive examination of spinal and neurological health, as well as x-rays, to pinpoint potential trouble spots. After a consultation, trained spine sculptors then identify the appropriate adjustment technique to re-align wandering vertebrae, extinguish inflamed nerves, and straighten out burgeoning stegosaur plates.
Bub-Ba-Q founder William "Bubba" Latimer is no stranger to the art of Southern barbecue. He has earned Grand Champion titles in barbecue contests, and serves his well-honed recipes at three locations throughout Georgia. Diners feast on succulent beef brisket, tender chicken, racks of juicy ribs, and pulled-pork sandwiches, accompanied by traditional garnishes such as Brunswick stew, mac and cheese, corn fritters, and fried okra. The Brunswick stew serves as a topper to the mighty Hog-A-Chong-A?highlighted on the Travel Channel?a deep-fried tortilla stuffed with seasoned meat, sauce, beans, and pepper jack cheese. Bub-Ba-Q's participation in barbecue contests across the country has also graced television screens on Food Network's Great American BBQ Showdown and TLC's BBQ Pitmasters.
Bub-Ba-Q's Savannah location, opened in November 2013, boasts a full bar and a large outdoor area with live musical acts.
