The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa's locations house traditional and UV-free tanning equipment alongside teams that are certified to perform a slate of med-spa and salon treatments. Cosmetic injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels aim to restore epidermal radiance, and ThinSpa weight-loss plans and CelluPulse cellulite-removal treatments help clients shift into a svelter shape. To soothe away accumulated stresses, massage therapists customize sessions to each client?s unique needs, drawing from a range of modalities to leave musculature more relaxed than a zen master?s stress ball.
Once a small artists' colony, Cannon Beach still plays host to a number of local galleries scattered throughout the town. Cedar-shingled boutiques dot the downtown shopping district, where visitors can also find several restaurants and wine bars.The town’s greatest draw, though, is its natural, coastal grandeur. Paying a visit to Haystack Rock is a must, but nearby Ecola State Park offers a more panoramic view of the Oregon coast. Here, hikers navigate forest trails once traversed by the Lewis and Clark Expedition, passing through towering sitka spruces, douglas firs, and western hemlock and pausing at ocean overlooks to espy migrating gray whales in the distance.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Helpful assistants are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
If skill is measured in hours spent practicing a craft, Teddi Jean could be called a master. She graduated from a 1,200-hour aesthetics program at the NW Institute of Esthetics and channeled her skills and experience into Teddi Jean's Skin Care. To foster beauty on the surface, she applies traditional, long-lasting water-resistant airbrush makeup, as well as eyelash extensions with Minkys faux lashes. She also helps skin obtain a more radiant glow with custom facials and body treatments, such as seaweed and chocolate wraps, which revitalize skin and reduce signs of aging.
Shareece Aiken's first encounter with massage therapy was as a client. But after experiencing its many benefits—including pain management and overall health—she decided to spread the goodwill by becoming a licensed massage therapist herself. Years later, Shareece is still helping others by tailoring treatments to individual concerns. This may include plying sore muscles with fluid Swedish strokes, or accessing aches in connective tissues with firmer, deep-tissue kneads. Shareece can also melt tension from backs with specialty hot stone therapy.
