An aesthetician gently scrubs a mixture of Dead Sea salts and moisturizing oil over a client's skin, revealing younger and fresher layers of cells; in another room, a massage therapist places heated stones onto tense muscles, dispersing the stress they've been harboring for months. Scenarios such as these are common at Evene Day Spa, where the staff specializes in both relaxation and beautifying treatments. The spa's menu also includes European facials which allot one hour to eliminate dirt and exfoliate to clear the pores. In addition to improving skin condition, the spa's aestheticians keep faces looking polished with permanent cosmetics for the eyes, eyebrows, or lips, leaving time in the mornings for more important endeavors, such as baking homemade Lucky Charms.

Total Life 360’s massage therapists melt tension with more than a half dozen kneading modalities, including trigger-point therapy and reflexology—all performed either in the soothing studio or at the home or office of clients. Like a woodpecker’s ice-dancing performance, Swedish massages teem with gliding strokes, graceful circles, and gentle taps. The intense, therapeutic pressure of deep-tissue strokes extract chronic pains from the muscle tissue’s innermost layers, and reflexology targets key points in the hands and feet in an effort to ease aches throughout the body. Other specialties of the massage studio's skilled therapists include hot-stone treatments and custom Thai massage.
Lush plants and a muted brown color palette soothe the senses throughout each treatment, summoning daydreams about beachside strolls and luxurious baths in giant bowls of oatmeal.
Operating inside SoKai Spa'lon, the licensed massage therapists at Fresh Lemongrass Massage pamper clients with an array of therapeutic treatments, whether to help alleviate pain or simply unwind after a taxing day. Swedish massages lull guests into tranquility, sports massages help reduce the physical stresses athletes incur in games, and reflexology treatments melt anxiety with a foot soak and body scrub.
Under the watchful eye of board-certified surgeon Dr. Jean-Claude Schwartz, U MedSpa's team of clinical aestheticians bestow soothing services and advanced clinical procedures upon customers in need of personal, custom attention within its retreat-like confines. The skilled team clears and strengthens skin with signature facials optimal for all skin types and conditions and performs more intense facescaping with microdermabrasion and chemical-peel treatments. Persistent fingers work over the arms, hands, and décolletage to track down fugitive tension in detailed massages, and wrinkles caused by said tension fade from view after the doctor's cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and laser treatments.
As is the case with many great medical advancements, sheer luck led to the discovery of salt caves’ therapeutic effects. In 1843, a Polish doctor realized that salt miners worked day in and day out without contracting the lung diseases so common to other types of miners and fire breathers. But his findings didn’t make much of an impact until the 1980s, when an early version of the artificial salt cave emerged specifically to treat maladies.
Today, at Salt Therapy of Georgia, visitors experience the healing effects of salt-cave therapy, also known as halotherapy, in rooms saturated with Dead Sea and Himalayan salt. The trick is teensy salt ions scattered in the air, which can seep into even the narrowest of airways. When they do, they fight inflammation, potentially easing respiratory ailments such as asthma, congestion, and even a common sore throat. And when salt hits skin, it starts healing acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other complexion-oriented problems.
So they can fully enjoy the holistic, drug-free method of healing, guests at Salt Therapy of Georgia are divided into two rooms, one for adults and one for kids. The adult room sports loungers, soft lighting, and soothing music, and the kids’ room keeps youngsters busy with quiet activities.
