A featured guest on Arizona Midday, Breanne Pelto has earned attention for pouring her nine years of experience as a certified sunless-tanning specialist into her beauty bar, Twinkle Tan. When certified techs lead customers into private treatment rooms, they provide disposable undergarments and hair ties before crafting custom airbrush tans with FDA-approved concoctions. By misting each client by hand and employing a full array of hues, Breanne's techs can avoid streaks and carrot-like complexions while hiding cellulite, spider veins, and blemishes. In addition to tanning, Breanne also offers teeth whitening and hair extensions made out of repurposed extension cords. Plush zebra-print chairs beckon incoming guests as beaded curtains glisten in the light of a crystal chandelier. Along the walls, racks of clothes and accessories entice the eyes.
Though their disciplines and specialties may vary, the team at Aletris Center agrees that the true definition of health is more far-reaching, and more complex, than a mere lack of disease. The goal at their center is to combine natural and alternative medicine with the best of conventional healthcare available. They apply this preventative, comprehensive, naturopathic philosophy to an extensive roster of ailments from acid reflux to weight gain.
As the staff members' backgrounds vary, so do the treatments they offer, which include acupuncture, holistic pelvic care, chiropractic care, and colon hydrotherapy. Other specialties include naturopathic medicine, natural hormone therapy, women's health, and pediatrics.
Roam the 5,000-square-foot gallery at Think Art and you'll see hundreds of original pieces of artwork by more than 75 artists, from oil paintings to metal wall sculptures. To many that sounds enticing, but to some, the vast selection may be intimidating. Fortunately, customers can enlist experts from the gallery to come by to evaluate their home or office space and help them decide which pieces would look best there. Think Art can then deliver and install the pieces the customer selects during these art consultations. If the client needs a large space decorated, the gallery can even arrange for an artist to produce a mural of a scenic desert or a stunning replica of a blank wall.
Of course, if a client already owns a piece and simply needs to frame it, Think Art can handle that as well.
