For starters, I love this place! The first time I went for a pedicure and was a bit early. They have a lovely relaxation area with warm sage/lavender neck pillows that immediately relax you. The pedicure experience was great and I continue to make appts with the nail technician, who I now consider a confidante and therapist. =) The best part though, is there are not any gaseous fumes from the products and the pedicure can last for weeks at a time. My second visit was for a pedicure and then they were able to squeeze me in for an hour long massage, which has absolute heaven! They asked what I would like, and I just said....relieve my stress please. Between the massage itself and the carefully integrated aromatherapy, I was a bit nervous to drive when I left. I felt like all of my cares had left and was in a blissful daze for about 2 hours. Since then, I have gone for a shoulder/neck with Jim, which I highly recommend for anyone hunched over a computer all day like myself! He also taught me some great at-home stretches to help with unwanted knots and flexibility. Recently, I went for a facial with Jennifer, and it was an absolute pleasure. I added on the pumpkin peel which smelled like pie, and nowhere near as uncomfortable as the traditional non-organic peels out there. What can I say? I love this place, and have booked a spa day there for my upcoming birthday. The staff is pleasant, helpful, and happy to help with any issues you have.

I recently received a message from Urban Sanctuary Spa which elicited a state of complete, utter relaxation. Immediately upon entering the foyer of the spa, I recognized the soothing aromas of organic salts and soaps that invited my senses to escape reality. The atmosphere is welcoming and the customer service is one of the highest standards. Urban Sanctuary treated me like an individual and not just another random client. The therapist, Jenn, was very professional and made it a point to ask me what I was looking to get out of the appointment. She read my body language very well and focused on the muscles in my shoulders that held a fair amount of tension. She offered advice on different exercises to assist in releasing this tension in my spare time. Webster-Merriam defines Impeccable as "free from fault or blame," which in my opinion is the best way to convey their approach towards massage therapy. Overall I was very well pleased with the service and would recommend anyone who is looking for a place to have a personal day with a personal touch.
Urban Sanctuary is AMAZING - and so appropriately named. From the moment you walk through their door, you feel like you've immediately escaped the rest of the world. There is a cozy relaxation room that you go to immediately and relax with warm shoulder/neck pillows that smell like of delicious spices. I had a scalp & neck massage with Jim and it was absolutely divine. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and make you feel as if you're in someone's home. I've been for massages at a couple of other places in Athens over the past few months and Urban Sanctuary would be highest recommendation, hands down. I have a gift certificate for their Queen for a Day treatment and cannot wait to go back!
