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.

As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets.

Janelle Lowery is a licensed massage therapist who strives to provide massages that relax both the mind and the body. Her studio is a tranquil space where white curtains filter the overhead lights, producing a soft glow that complements the earth-toned walls and wall-mounted candles for a true relaxation oasis. Janelle offers Swedish massages to improve circulation, deep-tissue massages to relieve chronic pain, and hot-stone massages that combine focused pressure with heated basalt stones to undo muscular gridlock and tension. Customers can also opt for prenatal bodywork, which helps moms-to-be unwind from the stress of carrying the weight of two and the mental stress of trying to design a solar-paneled baby crib.
Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
