Jody Tulloch and her team of massage therapists address tension on all fronts with massage therapy and invigorating spa services. Clients recline across heated tables that are cushioned by layers of padding as a therapist gently relaxes stiff spines, using coconut oil and grapeseed oil to glide their trained hands over areas of tension and harnessing essential oils to boost relaxation ease tenderness. During hot-stone massages, toasted basalt river rocks send heat deep into muscles, allowing tendons to warm up their vocal cords and quietly yodel. For those with TMJ, headaches, and sinus problems, Tulloch herself uses specialized techniques to ease the pain of these stubborn ailments. Body scrubs soften skin while infusing it with scents such as raspberry champagne or chocolate, and airbrush spray-tanning sessions tint bodies with a summery hue. Once clients emerge peaceful and relaxed from their private treatment rooms, they can prolong the experience by purchasing custom-blended essential oils to take home.

Stocked with four tiers of UV tanning beds alongside Norvell airbrush-tanning systems, House of Tans' meticulously clean facility invites clients to build bronzed glows for beach-ready complexions or special occasions. UV beds upgrade classic encapsulating designs with perks such as audio systems, cooling fans, and neck and shoulder reflectors that beam rays toward hard-to-reach spots. The salon?s retinue of trained airbrush technicians also mists patrons in a bronzer-enhanced Norvell tanning spray that inspires a natural-looking golden hue over 24 hours, conferring up to seven days of radiant skin that might taste like a California golden raisin. The salon also offers patrons access to a supply of Twilight Teeth whitening kits, which use UV rays to brighten smiles that contrast strongly with well-tanned skin tones, and Fit body wraps, which may burn up to 1,500 calories per session.

New Horizon MediSpa offers medically supervised weight-loss and aesthetic treatments at three Tampa-area locations staffed by friendly, bilingual employees. Weight-loss programs include evaluations from doctors and nurse-practitioners who prescribe pharmaceutical weight-loss medications or weight-loss injections that stimulate the thin-down process. Another avenue to a slimmer belt is the low-calorie meal-replacement program, which includes a regimen of foods that can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Technicians also pare down pounds with nonsurgical ultrasonic-cavitation treatments that use ultrasonic waves to break up fat cells and often lead to slimmer figures and less-taxed hula-hoops. A variety of aesthetic treatments are available as well, including Botox injections, microdermabrasion, and wrinkle fillers such as Radiesse.
