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.
Sport Clips specializes in creating a just-for-the-dudes atmosphere that’s tailor made to tickle the Y chromosome. "Men's women" stylists futz with the follicles of men and boys in a sport-themed environment decorated in a bold black, white, and red color scheme—evoking racing flags, professional sports teams, and jokes about newspapers. Your MVP haircut begins with a consultation about the look you want, followed by the precision haircut itself. Your guy-savvy stylist will then dole out a delightful scalp massage with Tea Tree shampoo. After a dollop of leave-in conditioner, you'll get to savor the warmth of a barbershop-style steamed towel and feel sports-related frustration melt away during an upper neck and shoulder massage. In between haircuts, you can come in anytime and get the back of your neck cleaned up for free, since unsightly neck stubble is known to attract the unwanted attention of poltergeists, sandworms, and debt collectors.

Cuts for 11-year-olds and up are available ($30+), as well as special stylings such as up-dos and braids ($20+). Add color to your offspring's head-hide with highlights, temporary coloring, and permanent coloring services ($45+, $5 per foil) that bring chromatism to chromes boasting yawn-inducing natural hues. Mini-manicures ($10) and pedicures ($15) are also options for digits left dirtied and dulled by backyard dinosaur-fossil excavations.
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.
