At Four Seasons Salon & Spa, a team of stylists and aestheticians keeps their clientele looking spruce with a range of skin, hair, and nail treatments that employ high-end products. A slate of five facials tackles concerns ranging from teenage acne to hard-earned laugh lines with treatments that hydrate, boost immunity, and free pores of deep-seated grime. The spa’s stylists tame hair with Redken shampoos and conditioners, or reinvent looks with color treatments ranging from partial highlights to double-process coverage. In the salon, nail technicians paint fingers and toes with durable OPI and Shellac polish to ensure their meticulous work stays chip-free, while lash specialists add volume to each blink with durable NovaLash extensions.
At Creative Skin Care, medical aestheticians recognize the fundamental link between health and beauty. Extensive backgrounds in both cosmetic and clinical care have trained them to seek the root of beauty issues in the deeper well-being of the body. Complimentary skin analyses allow skin-care experts to eschew "quick fixes" and "iron helmets" for in-depth beautification campaigns that might incorporate massage, salicylic-acid treatments, and oxygenation. Aestheticians are masters of lasers, whether they are directing the Palomar IPL laser at little melanin bull's-eyes within hair follicles or wielding the Alma Harmony XL laser to rout spider veins with little discomfort and no downtime.
Tucked within Saylah Threading and Day Spa, Kimochi Body N Sole Sanctuary sets guests on the path to serenity, guiding them down candlelit hallways as they make their way to one of several private treatment rooms. Music helps quiet the mind as trained massage therapists eliminate aches and tension using more than 15 styles of massage including lymphatic, hot stone, shiatsu, and cranial-sacral therapy. Each rejuvenating session can be doled out in 30-, 45-, 60-, 90-, or 120-minute increments, and all services include aromatherapy to encourage deeper relaxation. In addition to in-house massage services, the wellness center also offers foot soaks, ionic detox therapies, and manicures, as well as corporate chair massages that help undo pain brought on by being constantly sat upon.
Licensed and certified massage therapist Sam Worley has worked at a private studio for more than two years and worked for more than nine years, dissolving stress at local spas. He holds certifications in techniques ranging from deep-tissue to Thai massage, all of which are now available at Massage Harmony, his private studio in Decatur.
Sam never begins a massage without first holding a consultation?a policy that helps him figure out which muscles to concentrate on. Once he's devised a treatment plan, his nimble fingers set to work improving circulation with gentle Swedish strokes, prenatal techniques, or even heated stones. He can enhance any of these sessions with aromatherapy oils.
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.
