"Massage is my passion," says Nick West, a licensed massage therapist who channeled his interest in physiology and his desire to help people into a worthwhile career. Prior to each session, which takes place in a warm, private room filled with soft music and the purr of a thousand kittens, he chats with clients to get a sense of their emotional, mental, and physical needs. This allows him to custom tailor their treatment, whether incorporating soothing Swedish strokes or targeted deep-tissue kneads to achieve the most effective results. Though happy to assuage general aches, Nick finds the greatest reward in helping those suffering from chronic-pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and cancer.

Divine Massage Therapy induces a multisensory, full-body feeling of tranquility by combining tension-melting massages with soothing music, soft lighting, and scented essential oils. Beyond basic relaxation massages, specialty treatments include a Fire and Ice massage that transitions between warm and cool stimuli to ease pain. Raindrop therapy sees the therapist sprinkling the skin with 12 essential oils to mimic the relaxing feel of gently falling rain, then massaging them into the skin to create a tingling sensation that mimics the relaxing feel of a gentle jellyfish kiss. During each massage, guests can rest their eyes on work from local artists, such as oil paintings by Rob Shaw, which they may purchase to take a piece of the studio’s serenity home with them.

Opened since 1987, Sun Your Buns is ahead of the curve when it comes to tanning technology, its benefits, and its potential risks, and it’s devoted to bringing clients up to speed. So, when first-time tanners step into Sun Your Buns, they’re not just directed to a bed and left on their own. Instead, experienced staffers dispel tips for maximizing the benefits of a UV tan—while avoiding the risks—before recommending helpful products, such as lotions by Australian Gold or Designer Skin. Once prepped and ready to go, clients can recline in one of two Klafsun beds or stand in a SunDome booth, each tucked inside a private pink or blue room. For quick fixes, the staff’s certified airbrush technician creates custom, natural-looking tans in seconds with Norvell products.
