TAKE CARE OF YOU FROM HEAD TO TOE!
WHERE: Woodhouse Buckhead
WHAT: Release everyday stresses and muscle tension with a transformative massage. At the luxurious Woodhouse spa, choose from treatments that go deep, such as the Sports Massage that’s great for active people, or a more soothing service, a relaxing Body Balance Massage. Begin or end your time in the tranquil salt therapy room to improve respiratory and skin health. For a bonus rest, book lounge time in a plush quiet room solo or with a friend. You won’t regret it.
WHERE: CryoEVOLUTION in Chamblee
WHAT: Do like the professional athletes do and add cryotherapy to your wellness routine. Step into a whole-body cryo chamber at around -150 degrees Fahrenheit for two to three minutes and reap the benefits of reducing inflammation, which is associated with many diseases. Freezing for a few minutes might sound unpleasant but the discomfort is brief, and the benefits last longer. Exposing the body to ultra-cold temperatures for a short amount of time helps with relieving muscle pain, increasing circulation, releasing endorphins, stimulating cellular regeneration, metabolizing calories and clearing toxins.
STRETCH IT OUT
WHERE: StretchLab in Buckhead and Sandy Springs
WHAT: Stretching improves your range of motion, opens up tight muscles and improves flexibility and posture. Complement your workout routine by signing up for 25- or 50-minute individual or group stretching sessions. In the one-on-one sessions, a flexologist (yes, that’s a thing) will stretch you out and offer a deeper and more customized approach to address your stiff areas. In group classes, the instructor guides you through a set series and teaches you how to use stretch tools. On your first visit and on a monthly basis when you return, a 3D body-scanning tool will measure how well you are moving to better customize your stretch sessions. Wear comfy athleisure attire and grip socks.
GET A SUPPORT SYSTEM
WHERE: HOM Health Coach in Buckhead
WHAT: Not sure how to meet your fitness or weight-loss goals? Need help staying accountable? A health coach can offer support, guidance and check-ins to keep you on track. HOM’s coaches create six-month customized wellness programs that include movement, meals and mindfulness such as stress-management techniques for a holistic approach to make a healthier lifestyle sustainable for the long-run. They’ll keep up the encouragement along the journey so you’re more likely to follow through.
FOCUS ON SKIN CARE
WHERE: SkynBar in Buckhead
WHAT: Taking care of the biggest organ in your body with regular facials and skincare can do wonders for self-esteem, not to mention for putting your best face forward. SkynBar offers a wide range of facials and skin services to target your needs and that are suitable for your age, starting with the Teen Facial that addresses breakouts all the way to more intense anti-aging methods. Choose from options ranging from a classic facial to leading-edge treatments, peels and injectables.
