Because of lack of sunlight in the winter the hospitals get packed – because they have sun-beds in the hospital – and because the waiting list is so long, when the doctors say you need light treatment, you can come here if you get fed up with waiting. Those sort of people will only do the same sort of time as me because they’re not trying to get a tan; they’re just doing it for health reasons.
RL: On your price list you have ‘courses’. What is a course then?
Amber: You just buy sessions in bulk. It works out cheaper if you are coming here a number of times, and you can spread it over whatever period you want to be doing it, or you can share it among a couple of people, in the family say.
RL: Do you need to book up to do this?
Amber: No, just pop in. We have two lay-down beds and two stand-ups for different strengths so someone like myself would use a regular bed because it is a lot weaker, but people with olive skins would want to use the stronger beds. So we have a regular lay-down and stand-up and a stronger lay-down and stand-up. In the end room we have the Oscill-8 which is a vibrating machine for helping you lose weight. Again they had them in the hospitals for losing weight and so the salons have caught onto the idea and we have them as well.
RL: Right, thanks Amber, for that. That sounds very tempting. It only goes to show what we have on our doorstep without realise it is here. I may be back!
