Whether you’re an elite athlete, a weekend warrior, or anywhere in between, you’ll benefit from a trip to a recovery studio.

And luckily, we’ve got some amazing ones throughout the ATL!

We’re covering the top 3 recovery studios in Atlanta.

But What is a Recovery Studio?

A recovery studio is a facility that offers different therapies and services to help you relax and unwind. Plus they promote recovery to get you feeling better and healing faster, so you can work harder during your next workout.

From infrared sauna therapy, to cryotherapy, to even dry salt therapy, Atlanta offers plenty of options to get you recovered and back to your 110%.

Recovery Studio #1 – BackYard Recovery

BackYard Recovery is a fantastic recovery studio on Ponce De Leon in Atlanta. They offer quite a few options when it comes to recovery so you get to feeling your best quick.

If you’re looking for infrared saunas, deep stretching, or air compression therapies, BackYard Recovery’s got ‘em.

But what do those do for you?

Infrared Sauna Therapy

Infrared sauna therapy heats your core temperature on the inside, instead of just blowing hot air to heat your skin.

It offers great benefits like detoxing your body, burning calories, improving your sleep, and boosting your immune system.

Plus, BackYard Recovery adds color light therapy (also called chromotherapy) into each of the private sauna rooms. You can choose from 8 different colors, all of which have different benefits.

Your experience with infrared sauna therapy at BackYard Recovery includes a 45 minute period to unwind (and sweat it out), and they give you an iPad if you want to spend some time catching up on your favorite shows.

And, enjoy their complimentary towel service with a cold eucalyptus compress to feel refreshed and rejuvenated after each session.

If you’re looking for a deep stretch to improve your flexibility and your range of motion, check out BackYard Recovery’s HyperStretch service.

They offer assisted, customized stretching sessions to pinpoint the areas of your body that need to be relaxed. You’ll get a safe, efficient, deep, and satisfying stretch.

Plus, HyperStretch helps relieve sore muscles and stiffness and promotes circulation throughout your body.

NormaTec Air Compression

Whether you’re an elite athlete or a regular at your gym, you can benefit from NormaTec Air Compression therapy. And, this studio has it.

Used by the world’s best athletes, air compression therapy delivers a rhythmic air massage to help maximize circulation throughout your body. You’ll feel better, train harder, and recover faster after one of these sessions.

Recovery Studio #2 – The Salt Room 

One of just a few in Atlanta, The Salt Room offers a unique (albeit heavily beneficial and medically tested) therapy with dry salt.

Dry Salt Therapy

This definitely isn’t like a salt scrub for your hands or eating more salt in your food.

Dry salt therapy is a natural way to support respiratory health.

It’s a natural treatment for adults and even children to improve lung function, ease breathing, and strengthen the immune system.

You’ll breathe in dry salt which is misted in the air during your experience at The Salt Room. And along with boosting your lung function and immune system, dry salt therapy has positive benefits for the skin (think helping with acne and eczema) and is naturally calming.

Meditation with Sound Therapy 

Uplift your mood, emotional health, and well being with meditation with sound therapy at The Salt Room.

Your experience includes private seating where you’ll sit in a zero-gravity chair and relax to calming music.

It’ll help you feel rested and refreshed, and who doesn’t need a little bit of rest and refreshment in their lives?

Recovery Studio #3 –  Restore Hyper Wellness

With locations all over the country and four right here in Atlanta, Restore Hyper Wellness boasts affordable and accessible wellness for everyone.

If you’re looking for a top recovery studio in Atlanta that offers a variety of services to relax, unwind, and boost your recovery process, Restore Hyper Wellness definitely needs to be on your list.

Like BackYard Recovery, they offer compression therapy and infrared sauna therapy.

And they also have plenty of other options for you to choose from, like:


Similar to taking an ice bath, cryotherapy (or cold therapy) consists of sitting in a cold chamber.

It reduces inflammation and releases endorphins to help alleviate pain, boost your energy and metabolism (hello shedding some extra pounds!), and increase your body’s natural healing abilities.

IV Drip Therapy

Okay, did you know? 75% of Americans are in a state of chronic dehydration. Lots of America’s people love to drink sodas and other flavored drinks instead of water.

And that definitely means we’re not as hydrated as we should be. Plus, if you’re consistently working out, you need to up your (water) drinking game even more.

Proper hydration helps with digestion, detoxification, and waste removal.

So, Restore Hyper Wellness offers IV drip therapy to help get your body on the right track with proper hydration.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a noninvasive therapy (no needles or anything here) where you lie in a pressurized chamber and breathe 90-95% pure oxygen.

What does that do for you? It causes your blood plasma, cells, tissues, and fluids to hold more oxygen. And that helps your body burn energy more efficiently!

Photobiomodulation Therapy

A long name to say. But it just means that it uses near infrared therapy to reduce inflammation and pain. And it helps in your recovery process!

This therapy works at the cellular level, stimulating repair and normalizing cell functions.

All of that to basically say photobiomodulation therapy heals tissues, manages pain, and improves mood and brain health.


One other service Restore Hyper Wellness offers is the HydraFacial. This uses a unique, patented Vortex-Fusion system to exfoliate, extract, and hydrate your face.

It dislodges and removes dead skin cells all while giving your facial skin a hydrating refresh.

Whether you’re looking for infrared sauna therapy to sweat out the toxins or you’re looking for a seriously rejuvenating facial to feel refreshed, these top three recovery studios in Atlanta have got you covered!
