Licensed massage therapist Brittany Killebrew turns muscle frowns upside down with her signature bodywork. Each session begins with a consultation to discuss treatment needs with the client and any other concerns. Then, drawing on more than three years of experience, Brittany can promote relaxation with flowing Swedish strokes, or access lower-layer aches with firmer deep-tissue techniques.
There is no clear-cut path to health. To achieve wellness, one must consider the intricacies and interactions of the body and mind. With yoga classes and specialty treatments in massage, bodywork, and skincare, the team at Sanative Tranquility helps clients balance many of the different approaches to well-being.
Soothed sighs purr through the studio, which brims with a wide range of paraphernalia for the many treatments. Warm bamboo rods can help coax knots from muscles, and Himalayan or Dead Sea salts exfoliate and revitalize skin. Bodycare products from derma e brim with vitamins to pamper skin and hair, and massage oils from Bon Vital release aromas hinting at avocado, grapefruit, apricot, and other botanical ingredients.
Summer Haze Tan gilds physiques with numerous methods. The tanning salon frequently replaces the bulbs in its three different kinds of beds and stocks myriad tanning lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty. Its technicians also provide airbrush spray tans, using high-quality solutions to ensure that skin shines with even, sun-kissed coats. Beyond tanning, Summer Haze Tan offers slimming body wraps, soothing massages, and yoga and dance-fitness classes.
Tropi Tan does something the sun can’t. It tans bathing- and- birthday-suit-clad bodies throughout the year and keeps the golden glows coming until 9 p.m. or later on weeknights. Inside standup and lie-down tanning booths, clients relax as warm rays penetrate the skin and build a natural bronze in up to 20 minutes; a collection of lotions helps speed up the shade-shifting process and keeps skin looking healthy and moisturized. Those who prefer UV-free tanning can opt to hop in one of the studio's spray-tanning booths, which swap bulbs for a sugar-based solution that leaves skin golden and more kissable to horses for up to five days.
Midnite Sun & Cruise spritzes golden hues on clients' skin with equipment that includes multi-level UV beds and spray booths by VersaSpa and Mystic Tan. The salon boasts an array of tanning booths with different amenities, including facial lamps and fast-acting, high-pressure beds. The MR International products for sale at Midnite Sun & Cruise work in tandem with the tanning beds and UV rays to yield a deeper, darker tan. In addition to traditional tanning beds, Midnite Sun & Cruise supplies spray tans and red-light skin rejuvenation. The VersaSpa spray-tan solution mingles with the skin's amino acids and proteins, perpetuating a bronzed sheen for five to seven days, and Mystic Tan sprays boast a natural color that evenly fades and diminishes the slight DHA odor. Red-light therapy promotes collagen production for smoother skin, and fights acne harder than a dermatologist with a soap-filled fire hydrant.
At Bella Bronze Studio, tanning technicians grace hides with hand-applied bronze hues. They wield airbrushes to mist skin with a Norvell DHA-based solution that leaves skin tan for up to two weeks —just as a calendar tattoo leaves skin current for up to 31 days. The team also presides over a collection of six different tanning beds. Not content merely to darken the skin, the staff also performs massage services to smooth tightly wound muscle mass below its surface.
