As you might have seen, we have some big changes coming to Practically Perfect Day Spa in the next couple of months! We are moving to a new location closer to the heart of Downtown Canton at 361 East Main Street. We have loved every minute of our time at the little white house on the corner of Pettit & Main Streets, but we can’t wait to be able to expand our services in our new location.
We have also welcomed a new team member, Mandy, and we are so excited for you to get to know her! Mandy is a longtime Canton resident and studied massage therapy in Jasper at Touch for Healing, Reiki School of Massage. She fits right in with our relaxed, sweet style and we love the care she shows to clients.

A great massage can relax the mind, renew the body, and revive the spirit. When you combine a great massage with a wonderful therapist, your benefits are multiplied because they have taken the time to listen to you and the needs of your body. Our massage therapists are intuitive, holistically-minded, generous with their time and talents, and wise in the art of healing both mind and body. Each therapist possesses their own style and rhythm of massage, but the outcome is the same. When our clients leave the spa, they feel at peace with themselves.
We all know that massage therapy reduces pain, muscles tension, and stress. The Mayo Clinic reports that massage may also be helpful for :
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
Let’s take a moment to get to know our massage therapists:
You might be reading that title and thinking to yourself, “Duh, it’s a massage. The benefit is CLEAR.”
But wait…there’s more!
Are you stressed out? (Who isn’t, right?) Do you have tense muscles, poor immune health, or experiencing chronic back pain? These symptoms can arise in anyone and wreak havoc on our daily lives. We are offering a new massage therapy service, called the raindrop technique. The raindrop technique uses the principals of reflexology, massage therapy and essential oils to alleviate issues like those listed above.
What to expect from your raindrop technique session:
- Your session will take place in a relaxed and quiet environment. Your massage therapist will ask you to discuss any areas of concern you’ve experience, disrobe and lie on your back and drape a sheet across yourself.
- First, the therapist will apply essential oils to the reflexology points located on your feet.
- Once the oils have been applied to your feet they will then ask you to lie face down on the table and “raindrop” the oils along your spine.
- Next they will lightly feather in the oils along your spine using their fingertips.
- Light-touch massage techniques will finally be used to work the oils into the skin and other problem areas previously discussed.
- Your session will end with a warm compress placed along your spine that helps to drive the essential oils into the body.
A little more about the specific essential oils used:
- Oregano – Anti-inflammatory, immune stimulant, antibacterial
- Basil – Anti-spasmotic, muscle relaxant
- Wintergreen – Pain relief
- Marjoram – Relaxant, soothes muscles
- Cypress – Improves circulation
- Peppermint – Pain reliever, Anti-inflammatory
If you have more questions about the raindrop technique or reflexology, ask us in the comments. You can book your appointment on our website or by calling 770-704-5614.

Before you head to Book Now, take a moment to get to know the newest friend in the little white house on Main Street. We know you’ll be glad you did.
Sore muscles, swollen feet, tender breasts? Being pregnant is not all sunshine and rainbows (although there are plenty of those) and sometimes you will just need a little extra TLC. This is where a massage therapist trained in prenatal massage can help. Prenatal massage helps with the same issues that a regular massage does, but also takes into consideration the mother’s safety and well-being. So not only will you leave feeling refreshed and less sore, but also less stressed out because you know that your health and the health of your baby was the number one priority.
Let’s take a look at a few things to know before scheduling your prenatal massage: Continue reading
I don’t think there is a limit to the accomplishments of our newest massage therapist, Tracy. Her resume is testament to her thirst for knowledge and she puts into practice every thing she has learned. Her goal for her clients is a state of total wellness, including diet and nutrition. She shows how massage, as well as food-based healing can play a major part in a client’s overall health.
Most importantly, Tracy is kind. She makes you feel comfortable immediately. You know that when you are with her, her entire focus is on you and that’s rare these days.
If you haven’t yet met Tracy, get to know a little bit about her by reading below.
She has been called a miracle worker or the gal with the magic hands. Chelsey’s massages make you want to love the world and forgive your enemies- I’m not kidding, they are that good.
When she isn’t healing our clients, Chelsey can be found spending time with her family and loving on her son. She is always trying new things and dedicates herself to learning more every day. Her determined attitude inspires everyone at Practically Perfect.
If you haven’t yet gotten a chance to know Chelsey, take a moment to read more.
Our in-house free spirit brightens our day with her sweet smile and cheerful disposition. We never see her not moving, so it was hard to pin her down for a quiz. 🙂
