MassageLuXe provides a soothing spa environment dedicated solely to the art of the massage. Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal styles are all effective techniques for soothing sensitive soul sacks. The Swedish massage, the most popular type of massage, melts your muscles like beeswax, erases tension, improves blood flow, and awakens the lymphatic system. Opt for the deep-tissue massage and give your body a break and surrender to an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle grain pressure. The prenatal massage is ideal for kneading away the back pain that stems from carrying around a person on your person. All three options include a 15-minute session on the HydroLuxe dry water massage bed, where warm hydro jets push against the underside of a rubber bed, creating a calming massage experience without the annoyance of having to take off your gigantic T. Rex mascot costume.
Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.

The spa’s four massage therapists cater their kneading to each back, deepening relaxation with hot stones or reflexology techniques. Whether gussying up nails with Shellac or acrylics, the professionals do their best to set clients at ease and send them back into the world feeling rejuvenated both inside and out.
