At reYou Massage, therapists specialize in a handful of massage styles that aim to undermine bodily aches. The staff pulls from a repertoire that includes massage modalities such as Swedish, medical, deep-tissue, and Esalen—a soothing modality featuring long, slow strokes that can travel the body's full length—to blast through tension faster than a house of cards divided against itself falls. After a session of up to two hours, many clients note a heightened sense of relaxation, a boost in circulation, and a greater range of motion, which in turn improves the believability of their windmill impressions.
Though the plaque displayed in his office reads Ancaro Imparo, meaning “I am still learning,” Dr. Glen H. Crawford already boasts an impressive background. After earning his MD at New York University, he interned in general surgery while serving as a captain in the Air Force. As a flight surgeon, the doctor cared for both troops and civilians in the Republic of Korea. Dr. Crawford still believes education is a lifelong commitment, and his philosophy paid off in 2010, when he was named one of Philadelphia Magazine's Top Docs.
Today, the doctor leads a team at the Pennsylvania Center for Dermatology as they provide medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatological services. Medical services screen clients for skin cancer and help treat skin disorders. Versatile lasers remove unwanted hair, veins, scarring, and tattooed-on mug shots from the body. Cosmetic services can smooth out wrinkles or correct sun spots or discoloration with treatments ranging from injectables and fillers to chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
More than 25 years ago, Dr. Richard Dittrich began his medical career as an OB/GYN. Having established long-term relationships with many of his patients, Dr. Dittrich found more and more of them asking similar questions, often unrelated to OB/GYN issues. How can I look better? How can I feel better? How can I find Waldo? Eventually, he felt compelled to open Professional Aesthetics and Wellness Center (PAWC). PAWC's philosophy soon took shape; how a person looks is intrinsically tied to their overall wellness. With this as a starting point, a selection of medical services and cosmetic therapies also began to take shape. Today, PAWC's team of medical professional performs everything from beauty injections and fillers to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapies and medically supervised weight-loss programs.
Owner and lead therapist Vernell Alexander built AVA wellness to realize a dream she first had in massage school. Today, Alexander spends her days at AVA Wellness helping people feel better. The center recently moved locations and is now inside of SWEAT fitness. The new fitness center features an Asian-themed decorative style and is dimly lit by candles and salt rock lamps. Alexander specializes in massaging away injuries caused by demanding physical activities such as playing sports, dancing, or fleeing from Cujo in nightmares. She also has extensive training in reflexology and prenatal therapy, and has developed a line of antioxidant-rich body products that deeply hydrate the skin during spa packages.
Dr. Harold Farber's technique has been described by some as "artful poetry in motion." It could have something to do with his state-of-the-art equipment—which he uses to assess patients' health and dermal conditions—or the fact that he allays concerns by explaining his every move during treatments.
At Center for Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, he oversees a team of dermatologists who correct issues such as acne, sun damage, and signs of aging. The team follows Dr. Farber's lead by keeping abreast of the latest techniques, be it the sloughing off of dead skin cells through microdermabrasion or the illuminating of complexions with chemical peels or a steady hand with a spotlight.
The experienced staff at New Image and Wellness aim to help patients look and feel their best through a total wellness package of nonsurgical treatments. The staff performs laser-light therapy, as well as a range of quick, easy, and noninvasive beauty treatments: comfortable lipo-laser treatments target fat cells to remove inches, facial sculpting nonsurgically chisels faces or shaves mustaches off Michaelangelo’s David, and whitening treatments blanch teeth quickly and effectively.
