At Fijian Sun Tanning Studios, a variety of equipment crafts several shades of even, sun-kissed glows. Patrons can bask in lie-down beds such as the Ambition 250 with three high-pressure facial tanners, or prevent tan lines by standing up in the Sun Capsule, which allows one to create bronze shades without bathing in a cauldron of melted bowling trophies. To intensify their glows, clients can slather on skincare products from brands such as Australian Gold, Ed Hardy, and California Tan. For a tanning alternative, customers can retire to the luxury infrared sauna, whose therapeutic milieu facilitates weight loss and systemic detoxification.

Acacia's team of expert health-care professionals treats clients to individualized, naturopathic, and alternative health care in a relaxed setting. One-hour acupuncture sessions place patients in the expert hands of Victoria Spaurel, a registered acupuncturist and Chinese-medical-theory enthusiast. Practitioners insert needles into specific pressure points and frayed stitching on clients' bodies, working to balance overall energy levels. Acupuncture therapy aims to treat a wide array of health concerns, including chronic pain, insomnia, multiple sclerosis, bipolar disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, and being filled with helium. Although it improves stress levels and cell-phone reception for many clients, therapy is not recommended for candidates with bleeding disorders or needle phobias. Patients currently taking blood thinners such as warfarin may bruise more easily during their sessions, and clients taking any kind of medication are instructed to inform their practitioners.

Lounging inside wooden saunas at InFrared Saunas, men and women work up a healthy sweat, rosy glow, and a sunning-lizard-esque contentment as temperatures climb toward 130 degrees Fahrenheit. The infrared heat is gentle, though, without the stifling feel of a steam room. Each session boosts the circulatory and lymphatic systems to detoxify the body and dispels excess water weight for slimmer figures. The heat can also assuage muscle tension brought on by arthritis, fibromyalgia, or juggling collections of antique anchors.

Ensconced in the verdant foliage of Galiano Island on a resort site dating back to the 1930s, Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa provides a calm respite with 20 ocean-side suites, outdoor gardens, and elegant dining. Spa suites with fireplaces and massage tables and villa suites equipped with an attached kitchen and outdoor bath provide views of the beach and whales on human-watching tours. Resort bistro staff serves wood-grilled pizzas on an outdoor terrace, and Flores del Iris Gardens beckons visitors into a labyrinth of steams, ponds, and native and foreign fauna with wooden decks built around natural features. Depending on the season, activities such as eco-tours, kayaking, hiking and cycling, tennis, and scuba diving grant visitors ample opportunities to explore the island and escape truancy officers. Modelled as a European-style spa, Madrona del Mar Spa invokes the healing philosophy of its oceanic surroundings. Therapists swaddle faces, hands, feet, and bodies in natural, indigenous products harvested from British Columbia's west coast, saving clients from having to saddle a manatee and collect their own. As they assess client ailments, spa technicians administer 10 types of seaside or indoor massages, fruit-infused body wraps, and sugar-based body scrubs. Additionally, a private mineral sea flotation bath and glass-enclosed yoga studios provide ample space for alternate relaxation.

Within soothing blue walls dappled with vibrant lime-green accents, pHresh Spa Retreat's experienced team rejuvenates and restores radiance to weary bodies with spa services. The balmy wood confines of pHresh's private sauna envelop guests in sweat-inducing infrared waves, which usher toxins from bodies to promote supple, even-toned skin. Physiques sore from boxing confrontational shadows can revel in ache-erasing kneads and soothing oils employed during holistic massage therapy, and loose epidermal exteriors tighten after proper coaxing from radio frequencies used in body-contouring treatments. Before or after appointments, clients can relax in a lounge distinguished by cushy couches, modern decor, and a crackling fireplace.

A burbling fountain, plush sofas, and clean, modern accents telegraph Zen Wellness Spa's emphasis on making clients feel relaxed. Inside private, dimly-lit treatment rooms, clients close their eyes on soft beds and forget about daily stress and the potential for Earth's collision with the Sun. While their clients relax, skilled aestheticians and therapists customize a variety of services including European facials, Brazilian waxes, and Swedish massages. But Zen Wellness Spa isn't all fountains and facials; the team also embraces technology to make clients look and feel their best. Infrared saunas draw toxins out through the pores of the skin, and laser equipment wipe away unwanted hairs and inhibit their regrowth. Meanwhile, different lasers help missing hair to grow back by activating the follicles on the scalp, and biofeedback technology scans the body and identifies sources of stress.
