Bodies, like marshmallows, movie theaters, and knock-knock jokes, increase in appeal when slightly darkened. Enhance your surface appeal with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of tanning services at Utan Tanning Centre in the University of Ottawa Sports Complex.
At Utan, patrons can bronze complexions using automated spray tanning or by soaking up UV rays in state-of-the-art booths and beds. Step into Utan's sunless VersaSpa spray tanning booth, and an automated spritzer shades epidermal terrain to one of three darkness levels according to the user's choice. The machine can tan from head to toe (starting at $32) or add colour to just the face (starting at $10), legs (starting at $17), or tentacles. For ultraviolet tanning, Utan offers both lie-down and stand-up options (starting at $1.50 per minute) in its horizontal Ovation beds and vertical Sundazzler booths. Customers leave looking kissed by the sun rather than appearing to have wrestled with it, as trained staff members suggest a tanning time for each visitor, with a limit of 12 minutes for beds and 11 minutes for booths. Those who wish to spend some time soaking up heat from the other end of the electromagnetic spectrum can relax in Utan's infrared sauna for a 30-minute session ($20) designed to soothe and detoxify. Utan requires no appointments and prides itself on maintaining a clean, cyclops-free facility.
