Our Story

Since 2007, our custom therapeutic massage services and inspiring art gallery have served the holistic health needs of fiercely loyal local clients and visitors from around the world. We attract and hire the best licensed massage therapists with a diverse range of specialties and modalities, to help people ease stress, discomfort and chronic pain, or sometimes just to have a special experience. The goal of each session is to help clients enjoy health and wellness through customized massage, serene surroundings, insightful education, and thoughtful Southern hospitality.

We are so proud to be a Midtown Atlanta icon – a spacious and inspired oasis of calm and healing in a bustling and trendy part of our dynamic city. Our space is unique and unlike any other massage center. It was purposely designed to showcase local artwork amid spectacular views of Peachtree Street and the neighborhood, and we love supporting regional artists by sharing their work and stories with the community. We host special events throughout the year, including art shows.

Want for us to come to you? We offer on site chair massage services for corporate massage at offices, and on site sports chair massage for teams, clubs, and film shoots.
