Timeless Journey Day Spa hypnotizes clients into relaxation with a half dozen massage treatments and a range of spa services.

The duo also offers prenatal treatments for expectant mothers and sports massages for athletes and cardboard cutouts of athletes. Meanwhile, aesthetician Kristin Nielsen handles surface troubles with acne- and wrinkle-combatting chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments, as well as waxing for the face and body.

The goal at Solitude Massage isn't just to temporarily relieve pain—it's also to help clients change their lives so the pain doesn’t return. To that end, the company's licensed therapists follow their custom massages with exercise suggestions and nutrition assistance, as well as advice on how to offend bears so they won't hug you. Not that the treatments aren't plenty attractive on their own. Trigger-point and structural-integration massages call on intense kneading to quell chronic pain, and hot towels and dōTerra essential oils add to the experience. Clients can also solicit a therapist for offsite shiatsu bodywork during such events as corporate parties or long waits at the ATM.
Except for the stream of bronzed bodies emerging from its doors, Tahiti Sun Tanning could be confused with a traditional day spa. A hallway of private treatment rooms suggests the seclusion typically associated with facials and massages, because staff members believe tanning deserves this same luxurious feel. Clients bronze in ultra-ruva or high-pressure beds from brands such as Wolff and Ergoline as stereos keep ears entertained. In another room, customers can get custom spray tanning with Norvell spray-tanning treatments. On their way out, clients can buy tan-enhancing lotions and creams from the boutique to prolong their skin’s golden hue.
