Tennessee Floyd's Bodywork's licensed and certified massage therapists destress skeletal sacks with relaxing massage-therapy services. Muscles surrender tension and declare albatrosses at customs as anxiety gives way to gliding strokes and the light to medium pressure of a Swedish massage. The deep-tissue massage digs deeper into muscles, using firm pressure to dekink knots hiding deep in the tissue. During the hot-stone massage, smooth, gently heated stones rest along the body, delivering warmth to pained areas and crumbling tension into a fine sand later used to fill zen gardens.
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.

“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.
