The certified pamperers at Tennessee Floyd's Bodywork soothe frayed nerves and rekindle sallow complexions with a robust repertoire of massage and spa treatments. With dexterous, attuned fingertips, licensed massage therapists deliver long, relaxing Swedish-style strokes, unburdening bodies of the tension that coils minds into Slinky-esque shapes. During sports-medicine-influenced massages, therapists target athletic afflictions, and clients in search of exotic forms of bodywork can indulge in specialty massages, such as hot-stone and rain-drop treatments, which boost blood flow and usher in deep serenity. Additionally, during exfoliating salt and sugar scrubs, aestheticians slough off epidermis-dulling dry skin to restore a natural glow rivaling even the most enthusiastic firefly. Clients meanwhile relax into aromatherapy sessions to awaken olfactory glands that have been in a deep sleep since the neighborhood donut shop shuttered its doors.
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne.
In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
Classified as Redken Elite Salons, both Metro Salons locations staff a stable of stylists who keep abreast of the latest techniques with ongoing training in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Appointments start with complimentary consultations, wherein patrons dish on their favorite looks and show stylists their 10 favorite hairs. Then, hair pros draw on Redken, Wella, and Coppola products for a variety of services, from painting on highlights to trimming split ends. A final style ensures clients walk out ready to pose for sidewalk photo shoots or star in traffic-cam footage for the five o'clock news.
After joining the South Atlantic League in 2001, the LakeWood BlueClaws didn't hesitate to make their mark. In less than a decade, the team won three league championships, including a landmark 2010 season in which they became the first club in SAL history to win the division in both halves of the season and go on to claim the title. As the Philadelphia Phillies' Class-A affiliate, the team has sent 50 players to the majors, including an eventual National League MVP and the 2010 Phillies' star 8-foot mutant crab at shortstop.
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
