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.
The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa's locations house traditional and UV-free tanning equipment alongside teams that are certified to perform a slate of med-spa and salon treatments. Cosmetic injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels aim to restore epidermal radiance, and ThinSpa weight-loss plans and CelluPulse cellulite-removal treatments help clients shift into a svelter shape. To soothe away accumulated stresses, massage therapists customize sessions to each client?s unique needs, drawing from a range of modalities to leave musculature more relaxed than a zen master?s stress ball.
Shareece Aiken's first encounter with massage therapy was as a client. But after experiencing its many benefits—including pain management and overall health—she decided to spread the goodwill by becoming a licensed massage therapist herself. Years later, Shareece is still helping others by tailoring treatments to individual concerns. This may include plying sore muscles with fluid Swedish strokes, or accessing aches in connective tissues with firmer, deep-tissue kneads. Shareece can also melt tension from backs with specialty hot stone therapy.

If skill is measured in hours spent practicing a craft, Teddi Jean could be called a master. She graduated from a 1,200-hour aesthetics program at the NW Institute of Esthetics and channeled her skills and experience into Teddi Jean's Skin Care. To foster beauty on the surface, she applies traditional, long-lasting water-resistant airbrush makeup, as well as eyelash extensions with Minkys faux lashes. She also helps skin obtain a more radiant glow with custom facials and body treatments, such as seaweed and chocolate wraps, which revitalize skin and reduce signs of aging without outfitting customers with sailor outfits and oversize lollipops.
