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.
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.
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. Swedish massages incorporate gliding strokes, graceful circles, and gentle taps. The intense, therapeutic pressure of deep-tissue strokes extract chronic pains and missing car keys 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 studio's skilled therapists include hot-stone treatments as well as fitness training and nutritional guidance.
National-board-certified acupuncture physician Cari Cater and her business partner Deirdre Layne ground the Atlanta Center for Energy Medicine on a foundation of a combined 32 years of experience in alternative medicine. Each cofounder brings a different specialty to the treatment table, with Cater specializing in the meridian manipulation of acupuncture and the brain analysis of NeuroLink services and Layne concentrating on Energy Healing for those suffering from injury, depression, or espresso overdose. The company's healing quiver carries other such ammunition as natural cosmetic medicine, cranial-sacral therapy, and allergy elimination.
Nail artisans at Art's Nails and Orchid Nails lavish attention on fingers and toes by filing and polishing their keratinous ornaments in indulgent mani-pedis. In the regular mani-pedi, deft fingers buff nail surfaces until they gleam; the deluxe digit makeover adds a sea-salt scrub that pampers skin like the warm caress of a friendly anemone, as well as a paraffin dunking that grants skin silky smoothness and a callus treatment that transforms hardened soles into attractive foot pillows. While reclining in the comfort of the salon's cozy pedicure chairs, relaxed guests can rest assured that their fingers and toes will be kept dexterous enough to thumb wrestle a stenographer. For an additional $15, customers may upgrade to gel nails with either option.
