Four Seasons Spaaaah

Tucked away on 14th Street in the formidable Four Seasons Hotel is the Four Seasons Spa just waiting for your tired, weary, workout-worn body. Open late until 8 p.m. daily and until 7 p.m. Sundays, the serene and inviting spa offers 10 secluded soundproofed treatment rooms where you can spend as little as 25 minutes and as much as 80 minutes.

We were dying to try the Ashiatsu massage, where the therapist balanced skillfully using her body weight and deep foot pressure to find every snare and knot.  This ancient art is an exclusive treatment at the Four Seasons Atlanta spa. Don’t think twice. Book it and succumb to the massage.

For something a little less physical, try the Aroma Design Bar: With the help of a dedicated “Alchemista,” you create your own signature essential oil blend for a shea & goats milk body butter to go. Then, she will use your recipe for a 80 minute massage. Try the Midtown Massage: to relax, align and elongate muscles with long, flowing strokes and gentle stretching. And, don’t fret, the feet get special attention with a refreshing foot scrub and reflexology, while headaches and shoulder tension are eased with a calming scalp massage.

Jenny Roberts is the Spa Director and suggests an early arrival, carving out time for the steam room, sauna and lovely showers stocked with gorgeous spa products in each of the men’s and women’s lounges where you will find refreshing tea, citrus-fruited water and healthy snacks.
