After the Halloween candy of October, the many plates of stuffing with turkey on Thanksgiving in November and the hustle and bustle of the holidays in December, it’s a wonder that everyone is looking to get back on track in January with a detox!
Exhale Atlanta Midtown http://exhalespa.com/locations/atlanta-midtown located inside the Loews Atlanta Hotel offers many options to locals and visitors alike who are looking to improve their health from the inside out.
After reviewing the online menu, I chose to start my new year trying something new! A speciality treatment offered by Exhale Spa caught my attention described on the website as follows: HAMMAM DETOX THERAPY | 30 Mins: A revitalizing body scrub therapy as you lounge inside the co-ed Hamman. Enjoy a head-to-toe exfoliation to soften skin, increase perspiration, and stimulate detoxification.
My therapist, Alicia Perdue greeted me in the relaxtion lounge with a selection of scrubs and asked me to choose based on scent. I gravitated towards both the geranium and jasmine sugar scrubs and she advised she will customize the scrub to my liking . They also had a salt based scrub with a ginger scent that I will try next time!
While she prepared the hammam, I sipped on a detox tea as part of the service. She advised the purpose of the tea before and after the scrub is to assist with detoxification as it starts from within. I really enjoyed the treatment and left feeling like a new flower blooming in a botanical garden!
After my spa treatment, I got changed for my Exhale Chill Yoga class instructed by Stephanie Johnson.
This restorative yoga practice was just what I needed after a day of travel and a night of ringing in the new year! Calming, relaxing and informative are just some of the words my guest and I used to describe this class. The studio space was serene and inviting. Yoga mats and props are provided, just bring an open mind and leave with an open heart!
