Drift Wellness Studio is a Client focused massage & skincare concept offering affordable facials and massage Therapy in Athens GA

We offer massage therapy, energy work, handcrafted organic facials & waxing services at an affordable price. Our bodies, skin and minds deserve regular maintenance after dealing with the stressors of everyday life. Many of our occupations and passions demand repetitive motion or strenuous work that can cause injury over time. We believe that wellness services should be accessible to all walks of life.  Massage is an amazing tool aiding clients in natural pain relief, stillness of mind, and maintaining holistic balance. We are by appointment only and do not have a receptionist which allows us to keep our prices low.  For You!!


Our skin tells all and when it is at its best, so are we. We all want to put our best face forward and we are here to help. In our skin care services we use Astara Organic Skincare and our own handcrafted, organic skin care line, ESTER.  I have been perfecting this skincare line since 2012 and I'm thrilled to be sharing it with all of you.  We are now able to fully customize to each client. We also have a variety of high end, professional peels and equipment for those clients needing more advanced treatments. Important:  If you have received a gift certificate, please check whom the service is with before booking. 

Our Therapists look forward to helping you towards your wellness goals.
