No matter which pores they're liberating, guests find peace of mind in honest information, professional care, and an upbeat environment.
As a fair-skinned person looking to get tan, Tonya Framstad tried it all: tanning beds, spray tan booths, bottled lotions, and wipes. When she gave airbrush tanning a shot, she finally found her solution. These days, she brings more than 15 years of spray-enhancing experience to the table when she bronzes clients at Toasted by Tonya, either in the studio or on the road. Using a DHA-based formula, she helps individuals avoid the risks of relying on laying out in the sun, climbing into a tanning bed, or standing by a microwave for 10 hours to get bronzed skin.

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.
The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
