Live Tuning?

I see people on here talking about live tuning alot. What is involved? I assume they strap the truck to a dyno and play with it a little and then do a custom reburn on a chip and some tweaking.... am I close? Are there any shops or tuners in the midwest that are capable of doing this? What does a live tuning session cost? Im mostly curious but am also interested in possibly finding a place to do it.
