Dana Lewis is not scared of stress. Against her arsenal of massage techniques, tension stands little chance. Traditional relaxation sessions gently break down tightness and instill a sense of overall calm, while more intense deep-tissue techniques plumb deep to undo buried muscle knots. Dana can also call upon Eastern reflexology methods, which involve manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet that correspond to areas across the body. Beyond her skilled hands, Dana also has a spread of additional tools that augment renewal sessions. Hot stones melt tension, cold stones aim to relieve migraines, and soothing paraffin wax can soften the skin while locking in moisture. And for increased health benefits, Dana can add a lymphatic drainage service that evicts nefarious toxins.
The stylists and aestheticians at Bella Bronze Hair Salon and Tanning Studios strive to create a friendly, upbeat environment for clients who drop in for transformative beauty jaunts. Hair gets a time-out as stylists deftly cut or color it, drawing on their continuing education in the latest techniques as they transform coiffures to clients’ specifications. A nail technician stains talons with salon-caliber acrylics or OPI gels and other services to keep hands looking their best. The salon’s facials and peels rejuvenate all types of skin, which can also darken to a sun-kissed bronze in onsite tanning beds from brands such as Ergoline and Wolff. The SolarForce booth lets guests stay upright while gilding, and VersaSpa spray tanning evades both UV rays and beaches’ suit-snatching tidal waves while turning limbs a glowing copper.
At Quality Cleaners, certified staff members practice the latest dry- and wet-cleaning techniques using state-of-the-art equipment and high-quality detergents.

Inside The Comfort Touch's private treatment room, Mary Fullen touches her palm to a client's forehead. She's not checking for fever; she's channeling the client's healing energy to help them relax. This healing technique, called Reiki, flows from Mary's firm belief that everything a client needs to feel their best is already inside them. She taps into these self-healing properties during massages?which can incorporate aromatherapy oils?and meditation sessions. She also leads tranquil yoga classes next to the studio's garden.
