Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products. The Tan Company also fashions UV-free tans with Mystic Tan standup booths that evenly spritz bodies with a paraben-free DHA solution infused with aloe vera.

After more than 13 years in the massage business, Marta Vishy closed her practice to focus on being a mother to her newborn son. Now her decade-long hiatus has ended, and Marta has returned with a new wealth of life experience to draw from. In the comfort of a cozy room, guests can seek her expertise for flowing Swedish strokes to promote relaxation or request deep-tissue pressure or trigger-point therapy to relieve lower-layer aches.
Whether performing a Swedish massage or energy work, licensed massage therapist Mary Glimpse customizes every treatment to suit the client. No two massages at Healing Touch Massage and Wellness are exactly alike?Glimpse may supplement a Swedish massage with a stroke from her deep-tissue repertoire, or she might simply sprinkle the back muscles with a touch of paprika.
Armed with over a combined 25 years of airbrushing experience, Celebrity Skin's staff flawlessly mists skin with a natural, organic tanning spray. The team enlists the skin-coloring power of nontoxic sugars derived from plants such as sugar beets and sugar cane to expertly darken skin with a natural-looking shade of bronze that lasts for 7–10 days. Applied by hand, the mist sheathes clients from head to toe in as little as 25 minutes, or simply enunciates the legs, upper body, or face. The salon also bequeaths clients with pre- and posttan treatments to balance the skin’s natural pH and retain moisture and newly acquired color. The techs can tote their airbrushing equipment to residences for at-home tanning or to national monuments for bronze-statue touchups. Celebrity Skin also offers spa services including lash extensions and waxing.
