The certified pamperers at Tennessee Floyds 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.
For more than 20 years, TanFastic's multiple award-winning tanning studio has bronzed bodies under the trained spritzes of pro spray tanner Dina Gordon and the UV-filled bulbs of multilevel tanning beds. After wandering into private sunrooms, patrons kick back on beginner-to-advanced Level 2 beds to dream about vacations on the sun while picking up beautiful base coats. Both locations come equipped with the 12-minute Pryzma, which is outfitted with four UVA facial tanners, and the nine-minute Diva Tower, a stand-up booth that accommodates taller tanners with 2-meter lamps. Beauty seekers who have sworn off the sun can still catch its kisses with UV-free VersaSpa. During the 15-minute sunless session, a heated airbrush system glides evenly across the bodyscape as a blend of aloe and organic DHA adheres to the epidermis for a natural-looking, streak-free tan that lasts five to seven days.
The staff at The Body Wrap Shoppe & Spa specializes in swaddling clients’ bodies in solutions and salves that promote inch loss and detoxification. They offer the mineral-based Slim Wrap, which has been featured on The Doctors, as well as infrared wraps, seaweed wraps, and tortilla wraps. For those in search of a more high-tech approach to weight loss, they also provide i-Lipo laser body contouring paired with whole-body vibration.
Health First Weight Loss offers patients the tools and support they need to push bodies into fat-burning mode. Dr. Christopher Kawa works to develop and administer a mélange of weight-loss programs, starting with a computerized health assessment. From there, the staff might suggest body wraps to tighten and tone physiques, detoxifying infrared-sauna sessions, or even low-impact strength-training sessions using joint-safe whole-body vibration. A new phenomenon called ZenFrames soothes the mind with a calculated dance between light and sound, allowing clients to better focus on their weight loss, especially during thunderstorms.
“It’s not just a haircut, it’s a hair experience.” So goes the motto at this Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, where stylists go above and beyond to make each and every hair feel totally indulged. Shampoo becomes anything but ordinary at the salon's lather lounge, where heads can combine an intense conditioning treatment with a relaxing massage of the neck, shoulders, scalp, or hands. Or, opt for the salon's beauty ritual, which nourishes the scalp with an olive oil sugar scrub, before stylists spoon feed caviar to each strand and wash impurities down the drain with a sparkling Pierre water rinse. The color bar menu allows clients to mix and match shading services such as all-over color with a color glaze or minimal grey touch-up with a matching lash tint, and every color service includes s five minute conditioning treatment to ensure new hues look healthy. Beyond being masters of the latest cutting trends, several of the stylists at Aurelio are also certified Deva Curl curly hair specialists, while others are experts at installing Cinderella Hair Extensions, which are made of 100% human hair.

Stylists reimagine hairdos for men, women, and kids during cuts, coloring sessions, or re-texturizing treatments. Meanwhile, nail techs helm manicure and pedicure stations, pampering hands with paraffin wax and freeing feet from restrictive horseshoes during hot-stone pedicures. Facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments rejuvenate visages in private and serene spa rooms, and natural-looking spray or UV tans give skin a healthy bronze. Salon Topaz also coaxes beauty from the inside out with indulgent Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
