After regular service hours, the salon opens its doors to bachelorette parties, sororities, prom groups, and social clubs that want to tan in tandem.
From the outside, Resolutions Med Spa has the look of a rural country house––a quality that continues inside to its pastel-hued walls, wood accents, and plush, high-backed pedicure sofas.

The spa also employs a licensed massage therapist who can ease chronic tension with hot-stone therapy and restorative deep-tissue bodywork.
At Melody’s Massage studio, licensed massage therapists harness the therapeutic techniques of ancient Hawaiian healers during traditional lomi lomi massage sessions.

Two therapists team up for the tandem massage to jointly manipulate in balance the body's left and right sides for clients with extra muscle tension and problematic lumps of coal. Faux island getaways unfold in one of the studio’s private massage rooms, where warm incandescent lights ease tired eyes, cool sheets enfold bodies, and an active volcano quietly warms the therapist’s dinner.
