For most folks, getting a spa treatment is a special occasion—a once in a blue moon treat. Continuum Studio owners Johnnie Grozenski and Paul Hasenwinkel aim to take that splurge-feeling out of their Andersonville spa and teach clients that frequent services are like therapy for the body—essential and carthartic. That's not to say you won't luxuriate in your surroundings. You will. The rooms are dim and warm and the selection of hand-picked, decadent products (like the French skincare line Creme Pou Les Mains), near the front desk is staggering. As you're being blissfully rubbed, scrubbed or steamed during one of a plethora of reasonably-priced massages and skin care services on offer, don't be surprised if you develop a healthy addiction for this friendly spot.
