Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center has a specialist for every treatment it offers, helping clients reach every possible beauty goal. There's Leslie A. Broucker, a former athletic trainer who now works in acupuncture and massage. Mallory Beres, an Aveda Institute grad, takes care of skin with natural products. Those treatments might include body wraps, spray tanning, and facials. Acupuncture treatments target a range of health concerns and can also leave patrons feeling relaxed, as can foot detox baths and infrared saunas. Those calming effects are amplified by earth-tone surroundings and potted plants at the original Columbus location and at the new, spacious Grandview location.
