Review: Treat Your Feet Buckhead

Hey y’all! So recently a bunch of friends from work and I had our Christmas party and we decided to go get massages at Treat Your Feet in Buckhead and then grab dinner at Maggiano’s. It was such a fun evening and I just wanted to talk to y’all a little bit about the experience!

My History With Massages

I had actually never gotten a massage prior to this, I don’t do pedicures or anything like that because I don’t really like when other people touch my feet, just a me thing.

The Process

So we went in as our group and they took us back to the larger group space that we reserved ahead of time. There were a bunch of large leather lounge chairs, ottomans, blankets and privacy curtains. The lights were on when we arrived and all that and it was super clean.

When they first came in, they soaked our feet in water (I guess to either sanitize or soften our feet — maybe both??? Once again, I don’t do this regularly so I have no idea) and then a few minutes later came back. They put lotion on our feet and if you have pants that you’re able to pull up, you were also able to get your legs and ankles massaged as well. They did this for a while and they started with my left leg then my right and then folded a towel over them and left.

When they came back this time, they had hot stones and another tool that looked like chopsticks but with a rubber end. The hot stones were actually really hot (if they stayed in the same spot too long probably would have burned me a little) but they felt good at the same time since they were constantly moving and not just resting on my feet or ankle or leg. My masseuse put them on the bottoms of my feet and then on the sides of my legs too. They still did more of the massages from earlier but just added their other tools into their routine.

They came back once again and told us to flip around in the chair so our head was on the pillow of the ottoman and our feet were toward the head of the chair. We all did so and from there they massaged our head, face, neck and shoulders for the last 8-10 minutes (our session was an hour long).

My Opinion

I actually loved this whole experience and I’m not usually one to enjoy this type of thing.

At the very beginning, we didn’t have a long wait time at all and they cleaned the room thoroughly before we even had a chance to go inside.

The masseuse I had was very nice and used the right pressure consistently. I didn’t feel pain or discomfort from any of it (although in between my toes did tickle….)

The only part that really hurt was the knots in my shoulders (but who wouldn’t hurt) but once I left, they felt so much better. On day 2, I was a little sore but my posture definitely felt better and my shoulders felt way less tense.

{A few of my coworkers almost fell asleep too so to say it’s relaxing is an understatement!}

I liked that it was separated out into segments and I felt like I had a full massage experience when it was over and not like they left any sequence out or half-did any of it.

The cost I felt was reasonable too! It was $40 for an hour ($25 for half hour ….click here for more).

Out of 5 stars I would give this place all 5! It was so relaxing and it was a fun experience with friends too!
