With many locations throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths, high-pressure tanning beds, or jars full of fireflies that can be held against the skin for a natural glow. The salons also offer six varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
Advanced clinical nurse specialist Barbara Kaylor has spent her three decades in the nursing industry in intensive care, neurologic departments, hospice environments, and more. She even served as the Chief Nursing Officer at a hospital, which means she'd drive the building whenever it transformed into a tank. But at Ageless Lifestyle Aesthetics, Barbara turns her clinical skill set toward an area she's especially passionate about: cosmetics. Because she's a clinician with advanced certifications, Barbara can use systems that are off-limits to many aestheticians. She approaches advanced techniques including injectables, laser and light therapy, and ultrasound skin-tightening from the standpoint of a medical professional, always taking the time to educate clients about each therapy's relationship to their overall health.
The licensed massage therapists and estheticians at Organic Elements Spa pamper clients with an array of services that includes custom facials, microdermabrasion, massages, and hair removal.

For licensed massage therapist Victoria Hanhart of Hanhart Advanced Medical Massage, massages are more than just a luxurious way to relax. They can also help manage pain from injuries or medical issues, such as cancer.
Although she specializes in more than eight modalities, Victoria doesn't stick to a template. Instead, she borrows elements from each of them, tailoring sessions to address clients' specific needs.
