About Us

The Ravinia Spa Vision

Operated under the direction of chiropractor Dr. Daniel Bart, we seek to assist our guests in finding their way to inner peace and balance through the treatments and services our highly-trained and licensed staff and therapists provide.  Nestled  snugly in the Sandy Springs / Dunwoody area, we are more than a luxury med spa; our staff of massage and other therapists has chosen a lifestyle where health, harmony and well-being takes precedence.  We recognize that in the fast pace of today’s society, taking time out for yourself should be an extraordinary experience.  Our guests and patients have found that turning off for an quiet time dedicated to their self care during a busy week  provides just what they need to stay grounded, focused and centered.  Allow us at The Ravinia Spa to help make a difference in the way you experience the day.

Doc family

 

 

 

 

 

Born and raised in New York City, Dr. Bart has been dedicated to fitness since opening his first personal training facility in the late 80’s immediately after graduating from the University of Maryland.  As Dr. Bart’s reputation grew so did his business, expanding across three states, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut!

As his desire to help others increased and his business thrived, Dr. Bart became interested in learning more about the mind body connection and providing rehabilitative care for his clients who had undergone joint replacement surgery.  With a great desire to help others, he sold his business up north and migrated down south to Georgia to attend Life University in Marietta, Georgia.  Dr. Bart quickly became a campus stand-out for his dedication to serving as a mentor to his peers and fellow students active in the Life University Gonstead Study Club, an organization he founded and served as vice president.   Dr. Bart continues to this day to volunteer his time for the club and numerous other organizations.  At the study club he presents his own case studies and assists  students in the development of their technique in this proven healing and safe method of measurable chiropractic care.

Dr. Bart still continues to incorporate exercise into his daily routine, he uses his knowledge of fitness and exercise to enhance the benefits his patients receive through his care.  He credits his dedication to good health,  fitness and peace of mind to saving his own life in 2010.   He is happily married to the love of his life Jackie.  The two reside in Kennesaw with their 7 year old daughter and teenage son.
