5 Atlanta wellness trends to get excited about

As a leading Atlanta wellness center, ATL Bodyworks always keeps a finger on the pulse of health and wellness. Recently, we’ve seen some new trends appearing throughout the city that we can’t wait to share with you.

Here’s what’s new on the health and wellness scene in Atlanta:

1. Breathwork classes

More and more people are discovering the benefits of meditation and breathwork. Just take a look at your phone’s app store: you’ll see a variety of apps that guide users through blissful meditations, and show you how to decrease anxiety by controlling your breath. Conscious breathwork is all about connecting the mind, body, and spirit.

As breathwork becomes more mainstream, you can now find guided breathwork classes and sessions throughout Atlanta. This wellness trend isn’t just a temporary fad; breathwork is rooted in ancient spiritual practices, and it can produce significant benefits. Conscious breathwork is thought to help with:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Sleep issues
  • Rumination
  • Chronic stress

2. Digital detox retreats

Most of us are always connected to technology, whether we’re on our phone, tablet, or laptop. While work is often to blame, the truth is, many people are simply addicted to their devices. Digital detox retreats are allowing people to go tech-free and fully “unplug.”

There are a number of destinations within driving distance of Atlanta that offer the perfect weekend getaway. At your tech-free retreat, you can expect your days to be filled with yoga, group meditation sessions, and getting back to what’s important: connecting with others.

3. Non-invasive body sculpting

Most people want to look their best, but it’s hard to remove stubborn fat in certain areas, even with a strict diet and regular exercise. Non-invasive body sculpting is finally making it possible for people to reach their aesthetic goals without going under the knife. With no downtime or surgery required, it’s no surprise that non-invasive body sculpting is sweeping the Atlanta wellness scene.

In fact, one of the most popular services that our Atlanta wellness center offers is PureSculpt. This treatment involves applying a frozen solution on the body to activate a process called thermogenesis, which burns calories and helps expel deposits and toxins.

The result is firmer skin, reduced cellulite, and a more toned appearance. The frozen solution contains a unique blend of herbs, clay, and essential oils, and the treatment requires absolutely no recovery.

4. Non-alcoholic cocktails

It’s nice to unwind with a good drink every once in a while, but drinking alcohol is trending downward among younger Americans. A recent article in the Atlantic highlighted the fact that many Millennials in their 20s and 30s are starting to drink less or opt for non-alcoholic spirits. Multiple factors are cited for this change in attitude, but regardless of the reasons, we think it’s great to see this shift.

Atlanta hotspots have taken note and are now offering trendy non-alcoholic drinks that don’t sacrifice flavor. Donetto, for example, which is located in Atlanta’s Westside, features a creative menu of non-alcoholic drinks and other “zero-proof” cocktails.

5. Full-body skincare treatments

Skincare is having a major moment, especially full-body skincare. You’ll find a variety of body treatments available throughout Atlanta, including here at ATL Bodyworks. Our relaxing body treatments include soothing skin scrubs and polishes, exfoliating masks, and other techniques to fully rejuvenate you from head to toe.
