Tan 2000 tailors bronzed glows to each client in studios replete with warm colors and contemporary styles. While it guarantees quality beds with tan times of 15 minutes and speedy sunless tanning booths, the company also believes creating a welcoming, sophisticated environment is key to the experience. Cleanliness is a trait Tan 2000 takes to heart, as well, sanitizing rooms from top to bottom the second clients complete sessions. Through this dedication to quality tanning, clean and classy salons, and affordable rates, Tan 2000 has been been voted top Tanning Salon in the Tri-Cities for 13 years straight.
In the early 1990s, Francois Minani was teaching high-school biology and raising seven children in his native Rwanda. Forced by the genocide to flee his home, Francois and his family took refuge across the border in Burundi. Eighteen months later, the Minani clan arrived in Kingsport. Grateful for asylum in America, Francois nevertheless faced the daunting task of making ends meet 8,000 miles from home. He took up heavy labor, but the demanding work and repetitive movements took a serious toll on his upper and lower back. Painkillers and months of intensive care at a rehabilitation center did little to alleviate his injuries. Only massage therapy took. The results were dramatic. Two months of intensive therapeutic massage banished his chronic pain. On the strength of his own experiences, Francois decided to attend massage school to bring the same relief to others. Today at Appalachian Medical Massage Associates, Francois combines his background in biology and years of massage experience with a hard-won empathy for his clients’ aches. He specializes in working with delicate patients such as expectant mothers and fibromyalgia sufferers, but his range is broad—his Swedish-massage therapy and sports massages work to relax tough muscles.

After working in operating rooms and urgent-care clinics for years, board-certified family nurse practitioner Wendy Wilgus decided to shift her focus toward aesthetic treatments. She sought training from Empire Medical Training and ultimately opened Prestige Aesthetics, where she performs Botox injections, dermal fillers, and sclerotherapy. However, she still shows the same concern for her patients' comfort as she did as a health-care provider, offering mobile treatments that can be scheduled at patients' homes.
