At Tantalizing Studios, three levels of tanning beds, hand-blended spray-tans, and top-tier tanning lotions help clients achieve customized tans not possible at every tanning salon. After recommending a tanning lotion from a selection that includes Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Devoted Creations products, technicians lead individuals to private treatment rooms, where seven different tanning beds await. In addition to tanning, Tantalizing Studios' serene, turquoise-colored studio welcomes those in need of body-waxing and massage treatments.
Auburn Massage Centre was established in 2007 by co-founders Laura Buchs-Hall and Sarah Lapadot in an effort to share the healing powers of massage therapy and bodywork. During the past five years, AMC's staff has continued to bloom alongside its selection of services, which now range from standard massages to skincare treatments for faces, hands, and feet. Clients can also explore the facility's gym memberships, tanning plans, and sauna, where warm temperatures help melt away stress and hard candies hidden inside clenched fists.
In nature, stones are usually treaded on by the masses as they lie forgotten on the ground. But inside The Wellness Center, stones take center stage during massage sessions. They are heated with care and gently slid along body canvases, lulling tense muscles into relaxation. The massage therapists also incorporate essential oils and salt scrubs into their kneading sessions and slather mud masks over faces for added relaxation.
The certified staff members at Shade of Green Healing melt tired muscles using eco-friendly products, working out of their location at LightenUp Wellness Center or surfing their massage tables directly to customers' homes. During these services, their nimble fingers apply deep strokes and use techniques from modalities such as relaxation and Swedish massage or reflexology. However, the mobile team isn't limited to just massage; they also help clients obliterate calories during personal-training sessions and can target ailments with pranic-energy healing and reiki.
Sequestered from the fitness studio, cardio room, and kid center at St. Julian's Fitness, a quiet room plays host to massage therapy. Here, a duo of licensed massage therapists—Bethany Kovach and Ryan Debelak—improves muscle health with soothing hand movements. Both Bethany and Ryan possess the know-how to induce relaxation with gentle Swedish strokes, relieve chronic pain with firm deep-tissue kneads, and target areas of tension with a sports massage. However, Bethany alone practices Thai-yoga massage, which is performed on the floor without lotion, oil, or ranch dressing. Massage therapy is available without a gym membership, and guests are welcome to enjoy a 15-minute Jacuzzi session prior to each appointment.
The stylists and technicians at Bombshell Salon & Spa believe that every person deserves to feel beautiful, and so they offer personalized services for hair, skin, and nails that use advanced salon formulas. Each hairstyle that the stylists create is approached as a custom work of art, enhanced by high-quality hair products. The salon favors Redken Chromatics hair color, with an ammonia-free formula that proves gentler than traditional color. While clients are being pampered, music swirls through the main rooms of the upbeat salon, and private treatment rooms provide seclusion for facial waxing. Romantic crystal fixtures send prisms of light across blue and violet walls, accented by inspirational messages such as "You look gorgeous" and "Your SAT score does not define you."
