One look at Rituals’ menu of spa services tells clients there’s a nurturing or beautifying treatment for most any body part, covering the likes of hair design, mani-pedis, hair removal, and detoxifying footbaths. Facials—such as the Coconut Bliss facial—moisturize and repair skin, and imbue it with nutrients. Aestheticians also wield cosmetic LED lights that rewind the clock on aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making skin think it now lives in a disco. The staff also includes licensed massage therapists who knead Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Equipped with professional-grade cleaning supplies and machinery, ServiceMaster's esteemed carpet primpers penetrate to the source of domestic disrepair to restore luster to trod-upon toe ticklers. Technicians begin by applying pretreatment potions to areas of significant staining before coating rugs with a sheen of solution to loosen soil deeply entrenched from decades of carpet-top calisthenics. Techs then extract anarchic agents of rug corrosion with a concentrated fountain of clear, hot water—the method of cleaning recommended by carpet manufacturers and most forms of pasta. The aquatic extraction gently fleeces floors of all contaminants, such as dirt, pollen, fungi, and bacteria. Finally, the grime-razers perform post-treatment cleansing on any lingering stains, slide protective pads under furniture legs, and groom deck tresses to facilitate drying and effect a kempt, uniform appearance.
Joy Hall Thompson spent her childhood in the kitchen?she was either helping her mom cook classic Southern food or spending time with her father, learning to make his signature marinade. Her parents' love for cooking was passed down to Joy, who now runs Southern Sisters Restaurant & Grille out of a renovated historical building in downtown Thomasville.
Just like her mother before her, Joy focuses on Southern favorites, but she adds a creative, upscale twist to each dish. Ms. Daisy's BLT updates the classic sandwich with fried green tomatoes, and the fried chicken is served with a house-made peach sauce. Hand-breaded fried oysters and shrimp are accompanied by pineapple slaw that's made with Joy's mom's own recipe. Her dad's influence is on the menu as well?Hall's Steakhouse Steaks are soaked for 24 hours?the average time a ribeye steak can hold its breath?in that same family-recipe marinade that Joy learned to make as a little girl.
The piercing sounds of clubs hitting golf balls echo across the fairways at Winding Creek Golf Course, an 18-hole, 6,367-yard course that bobs and weaves through the Thomasville countryside. The par 72 course incorporates elevation changes, doglegs that bend both directions, and intermittent water hazards to challenge every element of golfers' games. The course's full-length driving range also serves as the training ground for Thomasville Golf Academy, where veteran instructor Lloyd Scarberry helps golfers lower scores with swing advice and tips on how to read greens silently so their opponents can't overhear their techniques.
