Sunny Daze Tanning and Salon's lineup of spray-tan technology and UV-tanning equipment—including beds, standup booths, and leg tanners—keeps skin beaming with a summery, straight-off-the-beach appearance. With tanning packages available by the session, month, or year, the facility helps clients maintain bronzed tones no matter the season. To sustain the health of epidermal surfaces, customers can stop spoon-feeding pureed carrots to each pore and instead load up on an arsenal of brand-name lotions, tonics, and bronzers available for purchase. Tanning aside, the salon's aestheticians sap stress during manicures, facials, and a variety of massages, including soft-tissue treatments and magnet therapy.

She sometimes combines these modalities with techniques such as trigger-point therapy and stretching for integrative massage therapy. While she applies her slow, precision strokes, Williams also educates clients on their bodies' inner workings.
