Bolstered by a fleet of five tanning-bed styles and a spray-tanning service, the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Sun Haven Tanning helps sun seekers revitalize their faded façades. Bed varieties vary by location, but both stores house sleek, up-to-date stand-up and lay-down units. Level one sun sponges can succumb to horizontal urges in a lay-down Fiesta bed for one 20-minute-maximum session ($6) or darken themselves with an unlimited number of sessions for five weeks ($50). The Matrix stand-up bed, a level four ultraviolet-equipped tube complete with a built-in fan, radio, and amateur stand-up comedian, can be enjoyed for 12 minutes at a time for up to 13 sessions ($28–$165).
It's clear from the name that Tanz & Things specializes in helping clients achieve rich skin tones via tanning beds and custom airbrush sprays. But what about the second half of that name—what could "Things" be referring to? As it turns out, quite a lot. If you need a mani-pedi to match that luxurious tan, look no further than spa technician Melissa Calame. Melissa's treatments extend far beyond standard nail services, and include Shellac manicures that protect against chipping for up to two weeks. Melissa even has special treatments for children 12 and younger, so nobody has to show up at a stuffed-animal tea party looking less than their best.
You won't hear percussive snaps and pops coming out of the treatment rooms at Vitality: A Creating Wellness Center. That's because Doctor of Chiropractic Jeff Mitchell doesn't crack spines; he specializes in gentle adjustments that use vibration to release locked-up vertebrae. The computerized Pro-Adjuster system knows precisely how much vibration to dole out and for how long. Dr. Mitchell uses these treatments to ease his clients' chronic headaches and help them lead pain-free lives.

You'll also have the opportunity to attend a health seminar lead by owner, Darryl Sobering, covering important nutritional topics such as meal plans, recipes, and tactics to evade the evil grasp of diet-smiting candy bars.
