Equipped with bulb-powered tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and airbrush-savvy aestheticians, Sunlounge Tanning Studio & Spa imbues patrons with golden radiance and rejuvenates skin with a full complement of spa treatments. Four different tanning beds house varying configurations of skin-bronzing bulbs that evenly match skin tone to that of a favorite celebrity or gingersnap cookie. VersaSpa spray booths coat occupants in a mist of one of three tanning hues, which cling to the skin for up to 10 days, and nearby aestheticians and massage therapists can knead away tension from newly bronzed skins. The sustainably designed studio, lined with bamboo walls, draws some of its energy from solar panels.
The Jenny Craig Program provides people with nutritious, heart-healthy foods, a personal consultant, and a plan specially tailored to helping them attain their desired weight. Clients meet with a Jenny Craig consultant to assess their current eating habits and to create a scheme for shedding superfluous pounds. Then, the week-one planned menu unfolds like a paper airplane made of phyllo dough (items in blue are included in the plan; orange items are recommended additions). A sample day starts with the breakfast scramble, a mound of scrambled egg whites and turkey ham topped with melty low-fat mozzarella and served over diced red potatoes. Lunch is beef chow mein, which is packed with broccoli, carrots, and bell peppers and remains unpacked with calories (it has only 220). Dinner brings the comfort of mac 'n' cheese and tops it off with a cookie for dessert.

Customers may request either a male or female massage therapist when booking their appointment.
