Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
Tracy DeJonge had long wanted to make a career out of helping people feel better both physically and emotionally, so acquiring her massage-therapy license from the State Medical Board of Ohio was a dream come true. She first began work at a chiropractor's office, where she gleaned insider training in deep-tissue techniques and learned the negative effects of using massage lotion when someone specifically asks for beef gravy. Now at her own massage studio in the relaxing confines of Advantage Fitness Club, Tracy continues to sideline chronic tension with hot-stone therapy, deep-tissue techniques, and sessions aimed at relaxation.
Nestled within the peaceful confines of a breezy, tropical setting, Banyan Leaf Spa unwinds tightly coiled muscle bundles with its custom massage services and paw pampering. Let the spa's legion of tension-taming therapists relieve a workday's worth of bodily aches with a 50-minute stress-relief massage, which returns overworked faxing and stapling muscles to their natural suppleness (up to an $85 value). After bodies receive a thorough coddling, hands and feet will receive a rejuvenating Eco-fin paraffin treatment, moisturizing digits for smoother, more authoritative high-fives and windmill kicks (a $35 value).
