Once they've entered Tropical Tanning, guests face a choice of three doors, but their decision shouldn't exactly be fraught with suspense—behind each door lies high-tech tanning beds with three levels of tanning pressure waiting to gild bodies to the tunes of a built-in radio or iPod docking station. Tanning associates help newcomers choose the right bed, and can also explain the benefits of the tanning creams that adorn the salon's faux tiki bar. Infrared-sauna treatments send beams of warming light into bodies, inducing the same raised heart rate as moderate exercise or really intense chewing. Murals of tropical sunsets, hammocks, and beaches adorn the salon's walls, and a life-size dashboard hula dancer waves goodbye on the way out.
Massage therapist Craig Mayfield has been on the massage table himself, and not always at the hands of an able practitioner. As a result, he knows that a massage is all about quality?hence his studio's name, Quality Massage. Here, he shows off his well-practiced techniques by delivering full-body massages, which blend Swedish and shiatsu strokes, acupressure, kinesiology, and reflexology. He also practices reiki energy work, which helps balance bodies suffering from energy shortages, which can manifest as fatigue.
