Though Sun on the Run staffers house an impressive array of cutting-edge tanning equipment?including six levels of tanning beds, Mystic HD sunless-tanning booths, and infrared Fit body wraps?it is their attention to detail that sets them apart. The Smart Tan?certified experts stock each private tanning room with complimentary goggles, baby wipes, and deodorant while packing salon shelves to the brim with teeth-whitening products and a variety of lotions and bronzers. The friendly technicians stand by to share their tanning expertise with customers, chatting with guests about how to care for their skin or build DIY tanning beds using nothing but cardboard boxes and smoldering leaves.

Wellness services abound here??there are massage services, nutritional programs, an oxygen bar, and an infrared jade sauna, believed to be able to burn calories while detoxifying the body.
