The ninth-annual Great Kitchen and Bath Tour wends its way through the custom cabinets and countertops of 12 Puget Sound residences, including a modern bathroom designed by Richard Pope & Dawn Ryan of Creative Kitchen + Bath and a remodeled kitchen created by Denny Conner. As ticket-holders arrive at each stop, they can browse glazed-tile backsplashes, run fingers along beveled countertops, admire brushed-nickel spigots, and check medicine cabinets for Flintstones vitamins before traipsing to the next location.
Michael Pys feels like he has a lot of missed opportunities. As an osteopathic therapist who specializes in pain management, so many of his would-be patients have resigned to living with chronic pain, and thus aren’t seeking treatment. With this in mind, Michael devotes himself fully to each client—treatment begins with hands-on palpation and a one-on-one consultation so that he can determine both the physical and emotional affects of each person’s condition. He uses 17 years of experience to integrate multiple therapeutic modalities, which might include soft-tissue manipulation and release, massage, stretching, and postural correction. Compared to medicinal therapy, Michael’s technique is more inclusive, and it can be adjusted to treat ailments that range from migraines and nerve-related discomfort to sports injuries and chronic back pain from a career as a professional backpack model.
Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan?certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.
