Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
At the clean and friendly Island Tanning, clients adopt a golden glow without stepping foot outdoors. Here, traditional UV tanning booths gild bodies quickly and evenly, while VersaSpa machines bronze skin instantly and with no UV exposure whatsoever. Hydration Stations, meanwhile, help to prolong tans by infusing skin with oxygen and nutrients, and can even help skin appear more toned.
Island Tanning also beautifies bodies with skin-healing red-light-therapy. The red light can help boost collagen production, fight acne bacteria, and provide pain relief, and may even help repair sun-damaged skin or balance naturally green complexions.
When it comes to keeping muscles healthy, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Just ask Leverett Miller. A licensed massage therapist, he uses his soft tissue bodywork sessions to keep muscles pliant and healthy. Whether his clients are training for a marathon or simply looking to stay in shape, Leverett loosens pent-up tightness and increases circulation. In the event of preexisting injuries, his work also brings relief from the soreness and range of motion issues associated with pulls and strains. Leverett's massages don't just benefit the body; his relaxing kneads also encourage the release of mood-boosting chemicals including DHA, dopamine, and endorphins.
Housed inside Tousled Salon, licensed aesthetician Jennifer Long draws from her past experience of studying at the Aveda Institute to pamper clients skin. No matter why you're stopping in, her singular goal is to understand each client's individual skin type and customize her treatments to each person. Her expertise runs the gamut of skincare treatments, from luxurious facials to full-body waxing. No matter what service you opt for, she leaves skin looking young enough to be ineligible for "adult swim" at the pool.
A self-service spa, Healthy Spaces fosters proactive wellness through stress relief, detoxification, and weight loss. During a 90-minute session, spa-goers may partake in a buffet of therapeutic equipment scattered throughout the quiet, peaceful space. As patrons wander freely from heated shiatsu massage beds to Ashiyu foot spa, they interact little with staff members, save exchanging the occasional secret spa wink. The bright glow of the light-therapy machine stabilizes clients' sleep while they repose on the E-Motion therapy massage chair, which mutely knead muscles in the shoulders, back, and dorsal finlets. After steamy sessions in the calorie-burning infrared sauna, clients may rehydrate with alkaline-ionized water or refresh with a cup of bSkinny fat-burning coffee.
