Over 15 treatments and a multitude of ad-ons are available at Ama Spa in the Edwin. Many of the treatments are unique to Ama and are not available anywhere else, and with the multiple offerings of add-ons, you can customize a treatment to fit your individual needs.
Deep tissue massage, Lighting Whelk Renewal, and a reflexology foot massage are available treatments, just name a few.
The Whiskey and Wellness treatment is a local favorite. Unique to Ama, the treatment includes a Chattanooga Whiskey infused sugar scrub exfoliation, followed by a sweet orange warming body wrap and a full body custom massage of your choice, along with a collagen infused weeping eye mask.
There are also several facials from which to chose, including: hydrating, brightening, resurfacing and even a gentleman’s facial geared toward men’s unique skin needs.
In addition to any treatment, you can select add-ons, including the guided meditation. This guided reflection experience promotes deep relaxation. Other add-ons include detox body exfoliation, collagen treatments for eyes, lips and hands, LED light therapy and a corrective peel.
The color scheme of the relaxation and treatment rooms are in shades of blue to remind you of the healing power of water.
The waiting relaxation room is a fabulous place to unwind before your treatment. The dressing room and lockers are perfect for the girl on the go who needs to squeeze in a little “me time” between business meetings. There are showers available, as well as a curated selection of complimentary products. Be sure to try Privai’s Sweet Orange Crème cleanser and eye make-up remover. Slip into Ama’s luxurious robes while you wait, and if you forget your glasses, don’t worry – there are extra readers for those who need just a little help in low-lit rooms.
The back lit halite salt brick wall that is absolutely a work of art in itself sets the body’s mode in motion for pure relaxation. (Yes, the bricks composing the wall are made of salt.) The sconces are made from Carnelian stone, which was known as the “Stone of Life” in Ancient Egypt and is known for healing properties that became well known in the western hemisphere with 12th century abbess Hildegard of Bingen.
Michele has hand selected many local items available in the gift shop, as well as a unique selection of products for treatments that are available for purchase as well. Privai’s, SLS-free, botanically infused products are made regionally in Ashville, N.C., by Christina Stratton and Ilana Alberico. The two dynamic female developers, whose mission is to promote natural beauty, find the most effective ingredients that are consciously sourced and support the holistic empowerment of women, donating a portion of the company’s proceeds to Women for Women International. There is a large selection of local Jonesy Wood’s jewelry and Renegade Silver if you need a little bling to accentuate your newly beautifully buffed skin, and don’t forget to check out the wonderfully aromatic lotions from K. Hall Designs.
