For more than 30 years, Always Tan Skin + Body's skilled staff of technicians has been devising its ever-changing menu of advanced spa treatments to restore stressed clients. The spa gets its name from a lineup of UV-centric tanning beds that gently bronze bodies in 12- to 20-minute sessions, but the staff of aestheticians and massage therapists run a full-service spa. Luxuriously heated massage tables cradle clients' cloth-draped bodies as certified therapists summon knots from the deepest layers of the muscular system with a variety of massage styles, including shiatsu and craniosacral. Though they specialize in therapeutic massages, the dexterous therapists easily adjust their kneads to accommodate clients' injuries, soreness, or migratory pancreases. To revive vivid or dull complexions, the spa administers microdermabrasions and custom facials backed by skincare lines such as DermaQuest, Image, and Le Mieux. Between treatments, clients can take a breather in the spa's quiet lounge, lined with black leather chairs and vibrant, lily-pad-themed paintings, while indulging in hot herbal teas and filtered mineral spring water harvested from the room's personal Niagara Falls–size waterfall.
Sometimes the biggest deterrent to starting a healthy exercise regimen is a reluctance to leave the house. Yogatailor aims to absolve its clients of this difficulty by providing customizable online yoga videos. Students select how much time they have, what their expertise level is, and whether they're experiencing any back pain or are pregnant, and the site constructs an appropriate video for them almost instantaneously. Each time students return, the site remembers their progress level and which clips they've already seen so that it can adapt videos to suit their needs.
Fueled by a regimen consisting of healthy eating, cleanses, yoga, and meditation, Food Body M.E.’s staff strive to educate others on positive, holistic living. Chefs demonstrate expert methods, pass on nutrition factoids, and create easily replicated five-course meals during small-group cooking classes. To help bodies detoxify without the use of chemicals or additives, nutrition gurus point the way toward all-natural juice cleanses. Meanwhile, instructors in community yoga classes encourage students of all skill levels to hone their focus and improve their chances at surviving the Twister portion of the state bar exam.
