A Touch of Heaven came to fruition under the direction of Andrea Sylvia, an aesthetician and former surgical nurse who dreamed of blending the pampering atmosphere of a day spa with the compassionate care of a doctor's office. Medical therapies appear throughout the extensive service menu, brightening complexions with pharmaceutical-grade skincare products from SkinCeuticals and trimming silhouettes with weight-loss programs. Nonsurgical face-lifts rely on microcurrent technology to diminish fine lines and visibly firm the skin, while the futuristic-looking alpha spa capsule combines the detoxifying benefits of a sauna with the rejuvenating effects of aromatherapy and vibratory massage.
In addition to these advanced treatments, traditional spa remedies such as manicures, hot-stone massage, and hugs from terry-cloth robes aim to quiet stressed minds and muscles. The spa also accents glowing complexions with glittering face and body art and donates all proceeds from the five-dollar service to Women at Risk, an organization devoted to combating human trafficking.
Tidewater Tours celebrates the colorful history and exotic wildlife of the Cedar Key area with its Island Tour. Nautical novices forgo gill implants and instead explore the outer islands of the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge via a spacious Coast Guard-inspected vessel guided by a certified, knowledgeable captain. Tours include narration and a question-and-answer period. As the boat cruises along the waterways, passengers scan the tidal marshes for a maritime menagerie of water-savvy critters such as dolphins, sea turtles, and rare horse-size seahorses. Depending on the season, the tours also offer potential glimpses of a number of birds. Each Island Tour trip usually makes a stop on at least one of the remote islands, allowing passengers to stretch their sea legs and converse with volleyballs that have washed up on the shore.
Attraction Salon's experienced stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians make a point of welcoming their visitors with open arms and plush salon chairs. Perhaps due to this uncommon hospitality, the salon has developed a reputation for serving a multicultural base of clientele that includes women and men alike. Stylists invoke a chorus of clips and snips with their shears, forming flattering shapes or enhancing the look and health of hair with highlights, deep conditioning, and texturizing treatments. Nail technicians busy themselves with the other kind of keratin, whittling nails into elegant shapes during manicures and pedicures or applying full sets of glittery acrylics. Faces likewise sparkle after one of five facials that cater to dry and acne-prone skin, rejuvenating complexions with cleansing and exfoliating techniques. On the other side of the salon, spray-tanning and waxing treatments prepare bodies for lounging on beaches or napping inconspicuously in bronze-sculpture gardens.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Brett Hirsch has studied advanced treatments to restore lush heads of hair to men and women. Among the most advanced treatments he performs, NeoGraft hair-transplant therapy reduces the recovery time and scarring of traditional hair therapies. A completely noninvasive option, low-level laser therapy attempts to bolster the growth of thicker, more robust hairs by promoting blood flow to the scalp. More dramatically, Sensigrafts, Virtuesse, and Reallusions hair-restoration treatments outfit sparse scalps with realistic locks available in many colors, textures, and rainbow-fro styles.
Whether the desired effect is an incrementally darker hue or a deep tan that says “I just spent a week either on the sun or in Cairo,” the airbrush specialists at Golden Gator Airbrush Tanning customize each airbrush session with organic Norvell Amber Sun solution. They harness more than nine years of experience as they camouflage varicose veins and blend unwanted tan lines while bestowing skin with a streak-free finish in one of eight natural-looking shades. The studio's large tanning area is fully ventilated to ensure that excess particles of the tanning solution won't compromise guests' even tans. All sessions conclude with a powdered drying technique so that guests can saunter outside directly after tans without sticky or still-wet skin.

Tan USA's staff readies bodies for the beach with three services: UV tanning, organic airbrush tans, and infrared body wraps. They whittle waists with the Formostar Encore body-wrap treatment, which helps patrons sweat away calories and toxins inside private treatment rooms replete with TVs, DVD players, and walls. They also wield airbrushes loaded with organic Norvell products to create custom tans without harmful rays and oversee a fleet of standup and lie-down UV-tanning beds.

Glamour on the Go's team of beauty benefactors comprises a quarter century's worth of prettifying prowess, gussying up on-the-go guests with an eclectic slate of beautification services. Utilizing the same spray-tan apparatus used on Dancing With the Stars, guests can adorn skeleton suits with a safe, full-body tan that produces a UV-free, natural-looking golden hue that won't rub off on clothing, even if it is borrowed from a messy roommate in need of a lesson. Boasting an emphasis on expediency, Glamour on the Go executes its spray tans in half an hour, granting tan-takers the rest of the day to flaunt their tawny glow at pouty marshmallow men.
The staff members of Tan USA Nashville pride themselves on taking care of their equipment, a lineup that includes five types of lie-down and standup tanning beds, as well as a Mystic Tan booth. Clients can purchase monthly packages or tanning credits, the latter of which can be used toward any bed without upgrade fees. To amplify the beds' effects, to improve tans, Tan USA supplies tanning lotions and premade stories about how much fun you had at the beach.
