To Mary Valdez, there’s more to massage than just touch. The massage therapist believes that education should augment every bodywork treatment, and that it’s her job to help her clients understand why they’re experiencing discomfort and how they can prevent it. Of course, touch is crucial, and Mary draws upon her many certifications in Swedish, hot-stone, and shell massage to create a tailored service that offers a soothing antidote to each client's chief complaint. In a dimly lit room, Mary provides her clients with pillows, bolsters, and a heating blanket, and conducts her massages using heated oils and lotions to provide maximum comfort and relief.

Malibu Tanning sends paleness packing with airbrushing and five levels of tanning beds to achieve a sun-kissed glow sans the actual sun. First-time tanners and those looking for a relaxing experience can recline in the level-one Sunstar bed ($5/session), which features 100-watt bulbs to build a base tan and a base camp for a future influx of pigmentation. The level-two Solaris bed ($10/session), level-three SolarForce bed ($15/session), and level-four Sunscape bed ($20/session) incrementally step up dermal darkening within reasonable spans of tanning temporality, leaving customers with plenty of time to return to archiving vintage TV Guides. The futuristically fabricated level-five Velocity bed ($25/session) employs an open-air design to keep clients cool, while a radio with an MP3 jack plays custom tunes and 18 facial bulbs at 1,000 watts each provide long-lasting color for both fair- and dark-skinned clients. Tanners can also skip the UV rays altogether and achieve brilliant bronzing with an airbrush-tanning session ($35).
The human body is designed to produce vitamin D from ultraviolet exposure. However, the staff at Tiki Tan Express by Solarium know that going to the beach on a regular basis is not very practical.

Equipped with quality beds powered anywhere from 3,200 to 22,000 watts, these machines provide a safe way for the skin to achieve a beautiful golden glow.
