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.
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.
The technology-driven treatments inside Islands Tanning MedSpa help bolster the body's glow and reduce its circumference. Inside Magic and Tanses UV beds, 12,800-watt bulbs saturate skin with darkening rays more safely than receiving a hug from a dwarf star. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic and VersaSpa machines spray the epidermis with a bronze hue, and Fit body wraps fuse infrared-heat energy with constricting wraps that help shrink fat cells. Islands Tanning MedSpa also offers memberships.

At Ajara Aesthetics, experienced aesthetician Nicole Dettra treats complexions to 90-minute seasonal facials administered in a spa snugly situated on the grounds of the Willamette Wellness Center. Emanating the fresh, seasonal aromas of cinnamon, peppermint, and pine, the facial focuses on rehydrating the face, safeguarding skin from the severity of cold weather and scratchy face sweaters. Before or after treatment, clients are invited to seek further serenity by taking a stroll on one of the wellness center's scenic walking trails, reflect on life by the frog pond, or admire the transient beauty of squirrel holiday-light displays.
