At Fountain Spa, a team of specialized massage therapists extracts pain from compressed muscles, and aestheticians nourish ashen skin with moisturizing body wraps. During a deep-tissue massage, muscle pluckers apply robust pressure upon limbs to dismantle tension bombs and foster relaxation. Healing hands make use of hand-carved sticks throughout a hot bamboo massage, rolling rods warmed by hugs from affectionate spa robes along the body’s pressure points to defrost frigid tendons. Aestheticians begin the body-butter wrap by untangling snarled skin with a dry brushing, evicting dead skin cells the way night-club bouncers evict long-hidden Prohibition agents. Clients then soak up a dose of shea butter before curling up inside a cloth for an extended rest. A splash of aromatherapy adds olfactory flavor to each treatment, empowering the guest to choose an essential oil that encourages relaxation, energy, balance, or restoration.
Not far from the bubbling waters of Fountain Center's outdoor fountain sits the entrance to Fountain Spa, a boutique day spa helmed by massage therapist Vicki Economou. The quiet courtyard outside serves as a fitting prelude to each spa experience, during which Vicki’s team of massage therapists and beauty technicians encourage whole-body wellness with holistic treatments and natural products.
Small batches of ilike organic skin care products draw their potency from blended fruits and veggies; the spa’s aesthetician calls upon these naturally derived concoctions during four facials that focus on deep cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, and overall pampering. Similarly, locally sourced Nourish bath products and Savannah Bee Company products fuel mani-pedis, body wraps, and massages. Massages, which are available in holistic modalities can also be enhanced with aromatherapy, bamboo sticks, hot stones.
