At Chaney's Natural, revitalizing the body is about more than muscle manipulation. Of course, the massage team commands an array of hands-on modalities designed to ease pain and promote relaxation, including Swedish massage, trigger-point therapy, and even energy-based reiki sessions. But the studio goes beyond outer relaxation by offering nutritional counseling services and mind-centering activities such as yoga classes, drum circles, and posing really hard riddles. Chaney's spans two locations and its Monongahela office is completely handicap-accessible, down to its wheelchair-friendly hydraulic massage bed.
Before helming Majestic Massage, massage practitioner Dan fell off a roof and shattered his leg, altering his life path and exposing him to the wonders of physical therapy and massage therapy. Dan left the experience with newfound knowledge and an appreciation of recovery—an appreciation that drove him to become a therapist himself, helping others relax and shed stress, tension, and unwelcome shoulder-perched parrots.

Twenty years ago, the founders of Med Health Services were fraught with frustration. Avoidable health emergencies such as strokes and heart attacks were killing too many people nationwide. They pondered how to shift medicine's emphasis from treatment of acute symptoms to disease prevention and early detection. Their answer was an OSHA-certified outpatient facility that partners with physicians to perform diagnostic medical tests.
Today, at more than 50 area locations, Med Health Services’ team of pathologists, radiologists, and cardiologists addresses problems plaguing the American health-care system. Many patients undergo expensive tests at hospitals when they're already very sick, and many doctors don't have the right equipment to perform these tests in their offices. By taking some of these tests out of the hospital, Med Health Services helps doctors and patients catch serious problems in their early stages. Appointments are easy to schedule, and results turn around quickly, like a somersaulting carousel.
Assessments range from ultrasounds and x-rays to blood and nerve-conduction tests. Board-certified physicians and registered technologists perform the tests and analyze the results to ensure accuracy and peace of mind. To make the tests as accessible as possible, Med Health Services works with a wide range of health plans and Medicare providers.
