With more than 20 locations in the greater Portland metro area and more throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines.

Kneading away anxiety and tension with mobile and onsite massages since 1992, the licensed practitioners at Amazing Massage Services combine multitudinous modalities to personalize each treatment. The kneading and soothing strokes of the Swedish technique treat bodies to blissful relaxation, while the deep-tissue massage focuses on points of chronic stress and checking if patrons have mistakenly swallowed their car keys. Pure essential oils complement each session and single note scents such as eucalyptus stimulate the respiratory system with distinct perfumes while unwinding overworked fascia. Once therapists untie complex knotting, hot towels allow patrons to enjoy soothing warmth without huddling up to an overheated engine block.

Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
At Amazing Touch, licensed massage therapist Kelly Zahniser strives to avail clients of the many physical and emotional benefits of massage therapy. In service of this goal, she soothes muscles with modalities ranging from pregnancy massage to reflexology and eases tension with mineral-rich salt stones found in the Himalayas atop a yeti's pile of bills. Zahniser complements her relaxing massages with detoxifying body wraps and fragrant essential oils. She also travels to clients' homes to spritz bodies with spray-tanning solutions or stage spa parties that furnish on-the-spot pampering for pre-wedding festivities or girls' nights out.
