The founder and director of Dermatology Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Dr. Christopher A. Snyder, leads an aesthetically trained staff in revising clients' guises via cosmetic, medical, and surgical care. Traditional dermatology services can unburden bodies suffering from embarrassing conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and whipped cream leftover from the office pie toss, as well as treating the skin-based symptoms of cancer and infections. Visages travel back in time with medi-spa treatments, including chemical peels, facials, and waxing, alongside injectibles that attempt to return façades to their factory-issued forms. Borrowing from the technology of every sci-fi movie, laser treatments can eradicate unwanted hair, reverse scarring and imperfections, and entertain lackadaisical housecats
Since completing his residency in ophthalmology at Henry Ford Health Sciences Center in 1994 and a refractive surgery fellowship at the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit in 1995, Dr. Steven Vale has performed more than 26,000 laser vision-correction surgeries. Using a pair of cutting-edge excimer lasers—the Nidek EC-5000 and the VISX Star S4—Dr. Vale treats the widest possible range of vision imperfections, including astigmatism. Acuity Laser Eye & Vision Center's modern facilities were designed specifically for LASIK and other refractive procedures and include two environmentally controlled surgical suites that make it the vision center of choice for most farsighted snowmen.
Massage therapists, fitness instructors, and nutritional consultants join forces at Pocono Body Wellness Studio to promote holistic health in all its forms. Therapists de-stress musculature with acupuncture and numerous massage modalities, and ear-candling sessions can help relieve tension in sinuses, which cannot be massaged. Elsewhere in the studio, resident aestheticians further enhance bodies with facials, waxes, and mani-pedis. The staff makes frequent contributions to charities, donating 5% of the proceeds of every massage package they book to a children's hospital in Philadelphia.
A doctor of medicine and osteopathy, Dr. Kipervas primarily focuses her healing trade on making women feel confident about themselves, which she recognizes as an important aspect of health. She achieves this goal through cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections, microdermabrasion treatments, and laser hair-removal sessions. But her services extend beyond mere aesthetics; she also helps patients plan for families, shed excess pounds, and quit smoking.
Once the province of only luxury spas and often dismissed as simply an indulgence, massage has since joined the ranks of legitimate, proven pain-management techniques—and Dee Wartenberg thinks that it’s about time. This is because as a licensed massage therapist, she has seen the benefits that medical massage can have on those suffering from pain and injury firsthand. Less a luxury and more an integral means of coping with pain, medical massage entails ultraspecific, results-oriented attention to injured areas of the body, as well as the supporting and opposing tissues. This focused system of bodywork, often accompanied by a physician’s prescription and a Get Well balloon, has been proven to relieve any number of symptoms, from back pain to decreased joint flexibility to stress.
Dee Wartenberg is a steadfast believer in the healing powers of medical massage, and she utilizes her skills and passion for healing during each session. She offers medical, sports, and trigger-point massage to alleviate clients’ suffering, but she doesn’t stop there. As a reiki master, Dee is also qualified to perform reiki treatments, and for those who are simply looking for a blissful, spa-like escape from general stress and tension, she happily doles out uplifting Swedish massages. Free-parking is available to all customers of Medical Therapeutic Massage.
