March 22, 2014 9:00 AM

We’re all carrying extra stress these days, especially with the winter blues weighing us down. If you need some extra help relaxing before or during spring break, consider heading out to one of Atlanta’s best day spas. Whether you want the full-day experience at JeJu or you just want a girly mani/pedi at Lush Nails, we’ve gathered a group of places that will treat you well. Which one will you try first? 

JeJu Sauna
3555 Gwinnett Place Drive
Duluth, GA 30096
(678) 336-7414

Fans of the JeJu Sauna return again and again to partake in Atlanta’s Korean day spa. Be warned that you’re going to see a lot of nudity, and you will be expected to be in the buff yourself, so if your level of comfort isn’t quite there, you might want to go for one of the more modest spa options. However, for those who are into that sort of thing, JeJu is tremendously popular. It is considered one of Atlanta’s best-kept secrets. 

Renew Day Spa
4347 Shallowford Road
Marietta, GA 30062
(770) 998-8592

If you need some time to yourself, away from the screaming kiddos, Renew Day Spa is a great choice, as children under 14 are not allowed. Whether you are going by yourself or for a couple’s massage, Renew will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the world again. Consider the Rose Body Booster for a truly luxurious floral treatment. Whatever you choose, you will be glad you’ve taken this day to treat yourself well. 

Lush Nails & Spa
1544 Piedmont Ave. N.E., Suite 123
Atlanta, GA 30324

The chandeliers and delicate lighting make the room relaxing and soothing, and the services are reasonably priced. Few things in life are more pleasurable than enjoying a glass of wine while getting a gel manicure.
