The staff at Atlanta Massage Retreat helps keep bodies and minds happy––and stress at bay––with a diverse menu of therapeutic bodywork techniques. Licensed massage therapists can relax muscles and surrounding fascia with flowing Swedish strokes or administer deep-tissue pressure to address aches. But massage and reflexology are only the start. Comprehensive medical notes are taken to record each client's condition and progress, and home-care exercises are provided to increase strength and mobility. Within a soothing massage boutique marked by french-blue walls and private treatment rooms with plush massage tables, the therapists also perform cranial-sacral therapy help with headaches and sinus pressure.
Like a gym, Meant Spa & Lounge wants to help clients slim down. But unlike a gym, which is full of clattering machines, shouting trainers, and people hiding inside lockers, Meant takes a more gentle, laid-back approach to weight loss. Physician-supervised staff administer PhotoSlim Lipo treatments, which rely on a FDA-approved noninvasive red light to shrink fat cells and combat cellulite, lie back and relax while a technician holds the red light over problem areas. Clients can even sip gourmet tea to help them unwind before each treatment. The treatments themselves are non-invasive, and no downtime is required.
When it's not slimming bodies, Meant's high-intensity red light provides nonsurgical face lifts. It boosts collagen production and tightens skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and slimmer jaw lines and necks.
If practice makes perfect, then Suddenly Slimmer may have created the perfect body wrap. Suddenly Slimmer has performed more than 30,000 of the inch-reducing treatments. Owner Julie Tracey first decided to open her own business after body wraps changed her life by helping her drop four dress sizes. Today, Suddenly Slimmer wages a war on toxins, inches, and cellulite with the crown jewel of the business—a vast array of all natural, non-dehydrating, mineral body wraps.
Powered by the Victorian Morton Process, the different wraps purport to permanently slim thighs, tummies, and chubby earlobes. Some of them are designed to whittle down waist lines or smooth cellulite, but clients can opt for the whole shebang and jump straight to the Supreme Wrap. So confident is Suddenly Slimmer in this top-shelf palliative, they guarantee clients will lose between 14 and 30 inches or they'll just give the next one away for free. No matter the wrap, Suddenly Slimmer looks out for their clients' safety by using only food grade ingredients in each of their mineral- and nutrient-infused wraps.
The clinicians and dietitians at WeightLoss MD, helmed by medical director Dr. John Ouderkirk, tip the scales in dieters' favor by employing lab test results and custom, one-on-one advice. Their client base is 85% composed of women, so they understand the unique weight-loss challenges posed to women, but they are just as skilled at helping men ditch unhealthy belly fat. While not included with vitamin-B-complex injections, lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants can bolster calorie burning and control, and the meal plans are tailored to fit each participant's lifestyle, tastes, and mouth size.
