The trained staff at Ashley Lynn's Tanning welcomes first-time and returning clients to quality bronzing beds and UV-free VersaSpa tanning booths. The full-body and facial bulbs in tanning beds of various levels speed skin to all-over darkened shades in minutes without the hassle of canning sunbeams for the winter. Staff members swap out each lamp halfway through its lifetime, ensuring tanners won’t endure weakened wattage during their session. Alternatively, the studio's VersaSpa spray-tan booth comforts tanners with an open design and an air-filtration system as they customize their 10-minute sessions by selecting either clear spray-tanning or bronzer-tanning treatment. Each treatment achieves maximum color after 8 hours, and the booth also helps to moisturize skin.
Rather than rely on a traditional soak—which they claim dehydrates hands more than it moisturizes them—the nail technicians at Johnson Nail and Spa soften cuticles with heated mitts. After trimming and shaping nails, they relieve tension with warm lotion and cooling gel, massaging achy muscles before brushing on a coat of vibrant polish.
Pedicures, on the other hand, do involve a brief soak in water before a citrus squeeze and relaxing foot massage. Both manicures and pedicures can be upgraded with extras such as a salt-glow exfoliation, hot-stone massage, and foot or hand mask. The experienced techs also lengthen and fortify nails with artificial enhancements such as acrylics and solar acrylics, the latter of which harness the sun’s energy to allow for more efficient clapping.
Stylists and aestheticians at The Face & Body Spa cultivate coiffures and nourish skin using products with an organic, vegan focus. That means that body scrubs exfoliate with organic sugarcane, nails glimmer with SpaRitual vegan polish, and hair color is ammonia-free, an eco-friendly approach that makes pampering sessions feel simultaneously as virtuous and enjoyable as volunteering at Willy Wonka's soup kitchen.
The spa's Eastern influence shows up in both the services—body workers use acupuncture and Reiki energy therapy—and the decor. Stone buddha heads broadcast calm throughout lounge areas, and live bamboo and potted trees add a minimalistic reminder of the staff's natural inspirations.
At On The Spot Massage Therapy, five massage therapists work to pamper clients with 10 styles and an array of treatment add-ons. Stuffed-up sinuses can find relief as therapists utilize cold, handcrafted marble stones to gently ease away inflammation and pressure caused by migraine headaches. Massages range from traditional Swedish and pregnancy modalities to a Sticks & Stones massage that uses warm bamboo and smooth basalt rocks.
Auto Salon experts Jeremy and Steve harness their combined 20 years of automotive expertise to spruce and tune up cars, trucks, and SUVs. Their interior detail services rid leather pores of dirt and debris, neutralize unpleasant odors, and cleanse crevices with an air gun. Along auto exteriors they remove remnants of tar and road paint, polish chrome, and apply protective paint coatings. For certain packages, the pair further refurbishes vehicular bodies with a three-stage correction that removes marring and erases vanity-plate ideas scratched into the paint. Each detailing package includes touchups such as a trunk vacuuming, a tire dressing, and a hand wash and dry. Besides detailing, Auto Salon assists drivers with maintenance services such as bumper repair, headlight restoration, alloy wheel repair, and overspray removal.
