It has been a few days since my luxe spa day at the Four Seasons Atlanta and I am still feeling the calming effects from such a magnificent (and well-needed) indulgence. My stress disappeared almost instantly upon entering the soothing lobby of the spa. Fab friends SuthinGirl and Bluhazl along with the Four Seasons Spa were extremely gracious to arrange the visit and offer three outstanding treatments. Bubbly and bites were served in between treatments so the day was off to a really good start.
The first thing I did after changing into a luxurious robe was undergo an aroma therapy session where I got to curate my own fragrant recipe within a shea butter base. I chose clary sage and lavender extracts in their most concentrated forms to create the stress relief moisturizing formula. I was sent home with a jar of it and it's oh so good!
It was then back to the calming, low lit waiting room. Soon after enjoying [more] prosecco, macaroons and friends, I was whisked away for the "mini- midtown" massage. They started at the neck and worked their way down to my legs ending with the most amazing foot scrub ever. I was fighting not to doze off - only because I knew I'd want to sleep a while.
Lastly (and they saved the best for last) was the Ashiatsu - a deep tissue massage using hands, feet and hot stones. This one put me over the edge. I am not sure how I drove home - just kidding - but seriously, by 8PM I was falling asleep because I was in such a relaxed mode.
A luxe day at the spa is something that I strongly recommend, especially with friends. Consider the Four Seasons Spa, you don't have to be a guest of the hotel to enjoy it and the service is impeccable.
