Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
The mother-daughter team of Alison and Kristen Pope boasts more than 30 years of combined experience in the professional pampering industry and run a. Salon Galleria & Spa with a soft, well-moisturized fist. Though Kristen originally followed in her mother?s footsteps to become a nail technician, she later added licensed cosmetologist, certified massage therapist, and hairstylist to her resume, which explains the lengthy roster of services that the salon boasts. Alison, Kristen, and their staff also host parties for children and adults, sometimes arming older customers with champagne flutes. Visitors can receive hairstyling or makeovers or dip toes into a heated whirlpool tub before each digit submits to buffing, shaping, polishing, and a rigorous cleaning behind their ears.
Christin takes care of her clients from head to toe, performing everything from seasonal facials to foot reflexology treatments. In addition to using her hands to revitalize skin and muscles, she also revamps looks with waxing treatments and make-up applications.
Rita Ammons still doesn't quite believe it. In 1987, she was in a serious car accident that left her suffering with severe pain from nerve damage. A friend recommended reiki as a healing practice, and within time, Ammons found that it worked—the treatments seemed to heal her. Amazed and inspired, she became a master reiki practitioner herself, eventually expanding her expertise into massage and opening her own practice, Back to Harmony Massage & Bodywork.
Now a licensed massage therapist, Ammons offers treatments in 10 modalities, from relaxing Swedish massages to medical massages that help treat ailments including back pain, headaches, and arthritis. She also seeks to heal guests through reiki and to soothe backs with hot-stone massages, which are far more relaxing than hugging a furnace.

Quality of Life Massage & Wellness is a destination for those who suffer from issues such as chronic pain, anxiety, and fatigue. Licensed massage therapists loosen muscles with deep-tissue massage, swedish massage, and a slew of other modalities.
