The expert massage therapists at Sideline Massage carefully manipulate weary musculature as part of an effort to heal clients holistically. Recumbent bodies bask in the spa’s tranquility as tension-tamers mold taut tissues into serene submission or celebrity caricatures upon request. The warmth of heated basalt stones commands pliancy in unresponsive sinews when placed on targeted troublesome regions. Direct contact with skin during corpus caressing imparts additional relief and can help promote curative qualities. Sideline Massage’s knowledgeable massage maestros can also provide tips on nutrition, healthy lifestyle practices, and TV/VCR repair.
After purchasing the original Hawaiian Tan location in Forest Lake in 2006, Fred and Debbie Newburg renovated the salon from the ground up, outfitting it with brand new tanning beds, computers, and vacation vibes. As their venture flourished, they added bodywork treatments to the menu of services and re-christened the business "Hawaiian Tan and Massage". Now with two locations and a full roster of UV tanning, airbrush tanning, and therapeutic massage offerings, they keep area bodies bronzed and relaxed seven days a week.
The team at StoneWater Massage & Skin Care strives to help clients release weeks', months', or even a year’s worth of tension with therapeutic skin and body treatments. Therapists unwind muscles with an array of massage techniques as well as Active Isolated Stretching and a steam sauna. They can also surround clients in a cocoon of warmth with body wraps and brush away sun-parched skin cells with salt glows and sugar scrubs. Each of their spacious treatment rooms features colors and decor related to one of the four elements: air, water, fire, and fresh-laundry smell.

Drawing upon experience accumulated during 15 years in business, the certified stylists, aestheticians, and therapists at The Hair & Spa Gallery work toward the comfort and beauty goals of patrons. Shears hum in the background as stylists lengthen strands with extensions. Beneath shelves of facial elixirs and body wraps, tanning beds purr. Airbrush units spare bodies contact with UV rays and keep them from becoming involved in the sand-eating contests popular at most beaches. Out back, a lush lawn sidles up next to a porch area equipped with potted plants, tables, and chairs where guests can lounge and new looks can see the sun for the first time.
