Kimberley Martins began her professional journey by training at Allied Health Institute. Then, she bolstered her skills by undergoing additional one-on-one training in muscle separation, a specialized form of neuromuscular therapy. And neuromuscular therapy is Kimberley's calling card. She uses the technique to relieve pain and aches and minimize the necessity of frequent future therapy or the urge to take baths in pain-relieving gel. Kimberley's expertise at neuromuscular massage was motivated in part by personal experience as a dancer, when she found the modality very helpful at aiding her in a prompt recovery from injury.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
