Silver Soleil Tan Studio puts clients in the mood for tanning in a sleek, colorful setting, with a sunset-inspired ceiling and high-gloss walls adorned with scenes of Rio de Janeiro. Smart tan certified team members are on hand to soothe skin with a lotion concierge service, or help cool off with a lavender-scented chilled towel or bottled water. It's their tanning beds that supply the warm glow. In keeping up with the latest technology for even, all-over color, the studio offers a customized tan plan that takes clients from their natural to desired color, along with special facial tanners, shoulder tanners, and personalized skin-type sensors. It also boasts glass-enclosed tanning suites and waterfall vanities stocked with facial wipes and ponytail holders. A VersaSpa UV-free spray tan booth is also available that simultaneously colors and moisturizes skin.
H3 Therapy's specialized hyperbaric treatment may be based on a complex scientific principle, but its main ingredient is simple: oxygen. First, the inflating chamber is infused with filtered air that pressurizes the immediate atmosphere. As the pressure increases, oxygen gently pushes its way into the client's bloodstream. According to the system's technicians, this oxygen boost helps the body heal and may even ease symptoms associated with autism, multiple sclerosis, and sports injuries. The chamber can be depressurized and opened from within, and it features a buzzer that occupants can push for help at any time. With these two exceptions, hyperbaric therapy is completely hands-free, so clients can spend the session winding down with a book or trying to connect with their spirit animal.
At Salon Milano and Spa, plant-based Aveda products lend customized aromatherapy and natural nutrients to salon and spa services. The products' holistic focus matches the manner in which the staff conducts spa services: in addition to explaining the purpose of each step in the facial or massage, therapists also guide clients through stress-relieving visualization exercises to calm the mind. All treatments are customized, from the aromatherapy of a massage to the angle of the cut performed by senior or new-talent stylists in the salon. Tuscan Sanctuary is open late on weekdays to accommodate busy schedules and UV rays that, like Napoleon and his chef after saying they preferred English bread to baguettes, are exiled.
