Oregon Tan Spa features warm interior decor to match the heat of its tanning lamps and the faux-heat of its sunless spray services. With today’s deal, guests can imbue their bodies with fresh colors by basking in the glow of a tanning bed for a month. New-hue hunters can also opt for a quick airbrush spray tan, which is applied by hand to ensure even coverage and avoid the erratic patterns that typically result from applying things with your feet.
Rather than devote itself entirely to healthy movement or meditative rest, New Self Renewal Center represents both sides of the spectrum. On one side, its fitness area hosts small-group classes ranging from energized boot-camp and Zumba routines to KettleCore, whose strengthening swings were featured in Brava magazine. Students can even order classes from the fitness menu, scheduling sessions of athletic stretching or core work at times that work for them. Personal trainers and a certified wellness practitioner are also on hand to develop custom programs.
Because the center's philosophy is one of balance, it counteracts the gym's kinetic offerings with a spa. There, massage therapists knead away aches, administering add-ons of aromatherapy and moisturizing shea butter, and nail technicians beautify fingertips with signature mani-pedis. The onsite café makes for another replenishing stop between workouts or paraffin dips—its menu includes sandwiches, salads, smoothies, and a variety of housemade items such as hummus and granola.
As a complement to its wide spectrum of amenities and a symbol of its family focus, the center also provides childcare services. Youngsters can draw on the chalkboard wall of the Kid Corner while their parents exercise or relax. At lunchtime, the corner's designated snacking space enables adults to eat with their kids and explain that cutting off sandwich crusts doesn't actually hurt the sandwiches.
Though Miracles' quirky and diversely talented staff of stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians aims to lift patrons' spirits with beauty transformations, their work did not wholly inspire the salon's name—the beauty sanctuary's original location was inside an old church. Owner Kendalia Edelman has since expanded her business into a larger location, enabling her to add an area for laser treatments that target everything from excess hair to leg veins. She also found space for Little Miracles, a separate salon where kids up to age 9 can get haircuts with supervision from parents and invisible friends moonlighting as style consultants.
Sacred Rhythms Wellness Center's eight highly trained staffers aim to diffuse ailments with a suite of holistic services, from traditional massage to pain-relieving acupuncture. In private treatment rooms with flickering candles, holistic healers conduct chakra assessments before realigning energy points with reiki or sound therapy. The ancient art of cupping encourages the body to release toxins, and an herbal body wrap cloaks the corpus in an elixir of 27 minerals and herbs that lures impurities and uninvited dinner guests out of the skin. Clients can also indulge in organic facials blended from fruits, vegetables, spices, minerals, and vitamins, and the center's own skincare line, Sacred Skin, is also formulated in-house using naturally sourced, organic ingredients. The center offers yoga, tai chi, and meditation classes.
Getting a tan?whether by way of sun, tanning beds, or sunless tanning?not only affects how you look, it affects the state of your skin. With this in mind, the airbrush artists at Modish Studios Salon?whose motto is "Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful"?begin spray-tan sessions with an all-natural, anti-aging sunless-tanning formula that has been infused with antioxidants, botanicals, and vaporized pennies. Customers may also choose to have a pH-balanced normalization primer applied to nurture epidermal health. The session yields a natural-looking, golden-brown tan that lasts up to 14 days. Alongside airbrush tanning, the staff promotes both inner and outer beauty with Xtreme Lashes applications, waxing, manicures, pedicures, and hair and massage services.
Silky curtains, damask artwork, and earth-toned candles set the mood at A Healer’s Hand, where the staff massage therapists and aesthetician fuse Eastern healing techniques and Western beauty treatments. On top of waxing and reiki, they specialize in prenatal massages that help relieve tension on weight-bearing joints and ease emotional stress that can be caused by pregnancy.
