Hospitality Awards 2021 Page 13 LUX 2021 Hospitality Awards Tucked away in Suwanee, Salon Greco provides everything needed to ensure that guests experience complete tranquillity. It’s European Day Spa offers a range of first-class treatments, customised to each and every clients’ individual needs, for total relaxation. Salon Greco The European Day Spa Best Beauty & Wellness – Gwinnett County Aug21095 With low ambient lighting and the scent of aromatherapy oils, the mood is set for a few hours of indulgence at The European Day Spa at Salon Greco. On changing into a spa robe and slippers, visitors can sit, enjoy a cup of tea and listen to the serene music as they are transferred to a state of peace and calm, before any treatments start. There’s a variety of services that reflect a balance of old European and Western traditions available, bringing a harmonious infusion of inner wellness and outer beauty through the Salon’s unique services. The therapists and aestheticians care about their customers’ wellbeing and are there to provide each spa treatment in the most professional and personalised way possible, whether it’s a soothing massage, a revitalising facial, or a rejuvenating body wrap, the highly trained specialists will assist in creating the perfect day spa experience. General Manager of Salon Greco, Phil Fennell, hits the nail on the head when he explains why regular self-care is key to maintain a happy and healthy body and mind. “We take our cars for a tune-up every 30,000- 40,000 miles of driving. We change the car oil every 3,000-4,000 miles. We check the tire pressure, coolant, and more, on a regular basis and do not wait until the car breaks down to do the necessary maintenance. Unlike a car, our bodies are on the go 24/7! “We all abuse our body and rarely treat it to the regular wellness maintenance it deserves!” Massages are the obvious choice to relax and restore our body’s sense of calm, and there’s more than enough to choose from at Salon Greco. As well as relaxing and pampering massages, like the hot stones treatment, there are more intense treatments geared to tackling problem areas, such as deep tissue and sports massages, which aim to really correct muscle tension and reduce stress. If you want to enjoy a treatment with a loved one, why not opt for a couples massage? Done on adjacent beds in the same room, a couples massage is a romantic treat for you both or a great way to enjoy a treatment with a friend. There are also more specialist massages, such as pre-natal treatments for pregnant ladies, and ‘cupping’ too, which helps to remove toxins from the body using heated suction cups. Phil tells us more about the benefits of regular massage: “It relaxes muscles, which in turn help align your skeletal structure,” he begins. “Massage increases blood circulation, bringing oxygen to damaged, stiff, tired muscles helping them to heal. Massage triggers the lymphatic system to function better, as lymph fluid carries metabolic waste away from our internal organs and muscles, lowering blood pressure. Massage increases the production of “happy endorphins”, it helps relax the mind. Massage reduces stress, boosts energy levels and emotional wellness. Massage improves posture and relives chronic pain.” But at Salon Greco, it isn’t purely just about massage and the range of treatments available tick a wide variety of health, wellbeing and beauty boxes. Step inside the hair salon and you’ll be greeted with friendly faces ready to provide a full consultation and discuss your needs – whether it’s a new cut, style, or colour, you’ll walk away looking and feeling fantastic. There’s also a range of nail care options, including manicures, pedicures, and polishes to keep your hands, and toes, in tip top condition, plus the Salon offers waxing (and threading!) on practically every body part, to ensure you stay fuzz-free for longer! Finally, the fully-qualified aestheticians are on hand to offer a slightly more complex array of procedures. These include treatments such as collagen infusions, face sculpting, microdermabrasion and enzyme peels. With so much to offer, it’s no wonder that Salon Greco The European Day Spa was recently bestowed with the prestigious accolade of Best Beauty & Wellness Spa – Gwinnett County, as voted for in the LUXlife Hospitality Awards 2021.
