Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
The licensed massage therapists at Worthington Therapeutic Massage—all graduates of the American Institute of Alternative Medicine—cater each stroke to the client’s pain-relief needs. Each session begins with a brief chat to discern the client’s chronic aches, pressure preferences, and underutilized superpowers. They specialize in Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques as well as neuromuscular therapy, which addresses pain within the muscular and nervous systems using soft-tissue manipulation and postural corrections.
At Departure Skin Care, aesthetician Sharon calls upon Skin for Life products to nourish complexions with deep-cleansing facials.

Following this horoscopic tangent, faces receive a soothing steam treatment, an infusion of nutrients, and a penetrating deep cleanse. Patrons may augment any service with a complimentary microdermabrasion, oxygen infusion, or essential-oil massage.
Radiance Salon proprietor Tracy Teutsch arms her brigade of stylists with organic hair and skincare products for haircuts, color treatments, and basic spa services.

Massage therapists at The Calm Room customize full-body massages to address specific areas of tension in private treatment rooms featuring soft music and heated massage tables. After consulting with clients about trouble spots, overexerted sinews, and pretzel-making demonstrations gone awry, therapists set to work. Their strokes' penetrating pressure stimulates circulation, relieves chronic pains, and helps detoxify muscles to reduce the chance of future aches and injuries.
