At Tan Oasis, bronzing professionals Jane and Mike Castello oversee a diverse fleet of tanning beds, pair each patron with a model that meets their preferences, and help to slim silhouettes and fight cellulite with infrared Fit Bodywraps. Inside Oasis, the 1,000-watt ultrapressure lamps of a Velocity bed darken limbs, the cooling breeze of the Ovation bed’s foot fan cools toes, and Norvell custom sunless spray tans imbue skin with a golden glow. Pre- or postsession, tanners can work to smooth skin and banish toxins with infrared Fit Bodywraps, spending 60 minutes lounging inside a cozy cocoon. The staff also equips sun worshippers with lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and Devoted Creations, flip-flops, and bathing suits for exploring coral reefs burgeoning in the bathtub.
The team of stylists at Cut N' Shears is like a family, originally forged from friends who met on a naval vessel in 2007. In addition to military camaraderie, the glue that bonds the Cut N' Shears community also contains a shared passion for hair design—stylist Marrico Simpson began cutting hair when he was 11 years old, and Tausha George when she was 13. Today, the salon channels that experience into services for the whole family, including cuts and beard trims for men, perms and relaxers for women, and fades and braids for kids. Focusing its mission around making a change, Cut N' Shears ensures clients leave with makeovers that may inspire other life changes, such as only speaking to their bank tellers in the form of a riddle.
Organic Ergonomics' father-and-son founders, Johnnie and Korrie Mapp, and their team of massage therapists goad physiques back to salubrious and balanced states with rehabilitative massages and reflexology treatments. Clients can close their eyes, spin around, and extend a toe to select one of six massage modalities from a diverse roster. A licensed therapist will then ferret out tender tissues while applying practiced strokes to boost circulation and evict chronic aches. Submit strained shoulders to the slow, gliding motions of a Swedish massage, or repose under the more probing pressures of a deep-tissue massage. Craniosacral techniques ply the areas around spinal-fluid channels to spur a smoother flow, and a Cayce/Reilly massage manipulates both joints and limbs to enable patrons to receive clearer signals from satellites beaming radio dramas.
Within each of Reed Manning Salon & Spa's colorful, calming oases, skilled aestheticians work diligently to revitalize appendages and foster relaxation. After seating patrons at cozy pedicure stations set against a charming beach-scene backdrop, specialists treat fatigued feet to the 45-minute classic pedicure, which includes a light filing, shaping, buffing, cuticle treatment, and more. The 30-minute classic manicure similarly nurtures table-tappers and rounds out serrated scissorhands, concluding with a fresh coat of polish in either the hue of your choice or the hue of a trusted tarot reader's choice.
Doctor of Chiropractic Paul Schirmer wants to help you to stand up straight. Poor posture can lead to a host of ailments, such as headaches and organ constriction, which Schirmer aims to prevent by conducting visual examinations, performing digital foot scans, and coaxing the spine to slip out of the body and lie still while he looks at it. After diagnosis, the chiropractor can treat posture issues with physical therapies and orthotic shoe inserts. Deep-tissue massages performed by licensed massage therapists further alleviate tension and undo muscle knots.
Using artistic talent and indelible ink, the five artists at Folk City Tattoo transform skin into a canvas for creative expression. The experienced inkers can create custom designs and charge between $100 and $125 per hour for their work (with a shop minimum of $50)—costs vary upon the complexity and size of the design. Bring in original illustrations of floppy-eared dogs playing beach volleyball to permanently commemorate a meaningful game of doggie beach volleyball or browse the design ideas bedecking the shop's walls for pre-formed skinspiration. Contemporary designs are available in bold color palettes, though the artists are equally skilled at traditional designs. The laid-back shop features a pool table for pre-ink gaming and felt petting and comfortable chairs cosset customers during their stay beneath the artist's needle.
