For only $25 you enter a room large and pristine. From here on out you don't need anything but your birthday suit. Women and men enter separately into private areas with lockers, dry sauna, wet sauna, cold tub, hot tub, even hotter tub and showers. They even provide razors and toothbrushes. Splurge on the body scrub. There's something special about being rolled around wet and naked on a table while an old Asian lady scrubs inches of your body that have definitely never been exfoliated. Believe it when they say one loses two-three pounds of dead skin in the process. It's grossness followed by silky, baby-butt smoothness. The community area has heated marble floors, offers acupuncture, cupping, foot reflexology, and massages, although overpriced. You can sleep overnight in the sleep pods or take a nap in one of seven community saunas that are decked TF out. Perfect place to ride out a storm too. If there was a Jeju South, we'd spend the night there weekly. less...

Yeah, that’s a lot of money — especially in these bank-account-depleted days. But at BLISS SPA, $500 goes really, really far. The venerable skincare line and beauty outpost, which originated in SoHo and now operates 16 locations worldwide, has two locations in Atlanta (only New York has more). But expansion has hardly left Bliss with stretch marks. In fact, the spa’s signature treatments have never been more fashionable. Start with the triple-oxygen facial to get that youthful glow, follow up with the “fatgirlslim treatment” to improve body tone, continue with the “blissage” massage to melt away anxiety, and finish with a hot cream manicure. Hey, it’s cheaper than plastic surgery! W Atlanta Midtown, 188 14th St.; W Atlanta downtown, 45 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. 877-862-5477. www.blissworld.com. less...

If you’re looking to release some tension without releasing the contents of your wallet, the lovely and surreal JEJU SAUNA is the just the space. JeJu’s sprawling, Epcot-esque compound boasts a collection of healing rooms, saunas, mineral pools and spas modeled after a traditional Korean bathhouse — in a setting that’s hands-down the most unusual in the city. The entrance fee will buy you a visit to the Jade Room (for increasing metabolism and improving circulation), the Charcoal Room (for toxin absorption), the Rock Salt Room (for stress release) and the Baked Clay Sauna (for melting muscle tension). In true bathhouse style, parts of JeJu are divided by sex and are clothing-optional. There’s also a food court serving Korean fare, and a menu of spa-styled scrubs and massage. 3555 Gwinnett Place Drive, Duluth. 678-336-7414. www.jejusauna.net. less...

In a town filled with massage therapists with magic hands, it can be tough to distinguish the very good from the great. Spa experiences are like sex (and let's face it, some of them are ... ) in that the worst you ever had was still good. Spa Sydell offers the latest techniques, including hot stone massage, applied by a practitioner who is as calming as the technique itself. The spa also offers the usual smorgasbord of facials, manicures, pedicures and hydrotherapy. less...
