Helmed by therapist Michele Salway, the muscle masons of Body Time Massage Therapy help clients unburden themselves of stress and physical tension. A graduate of the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage, Salway decompresses bodies with deep-tissue and shiatsu techniques, as well as well-timed knock-knock jokes. In her off time, she continues expanding her arsenal of modalities through ongoing training and checking the museum’s marble statues for cracks. Salway and her team welcome wearied physiques to Body Time’s studio, as well as make house calls and tote chairs to businesses to provide corporate massage services.

The epidermal experts at Sun of A Beach Tanning cover bodies in sun-kissed shades with a wide range of sunless systems, beds, and tanning products, proving there are easier ways to get a tan than replacing your bed with a pile of flashlights or letting the sun bear-hug you. Develop a head turning-tint in the Sun Capsule Eclipse stand-up bed, its seven-minute treatment time rendering it ideal for quick touchups during lunch breaks or right before parties demanding you to dress as your favorite bronze currency. For a UV-free tan, Sun of a Beach's expert certified airbrush technicians coat hides in Norvell sunless products. The studio then helps clients maintain their golden hues with an airbrush kit, which includes pre-tan body scrub and a cleansing body wash alongside a color-extending moisturizer to ensure that your tan doesn't fade prematurely. Airbrush sessions require reservations, so call ahead for an appointment.

At V Salon, a team of trained visage virtuosos will trim tarnished head helmets with expert scissor-wielding skills.

Customers can revitalize lusterless locks with an electric-eel kiss or opt for the less shocking single process ($55–$60) or splash (partial, $45+; full foil, $65+) of hair color. Complement smooth strands with a smooth facial waxing, leaving your mug silkier than a velvet bean ($10).
