The podiatrists at PA Foot & Ankle Associates believe it's important to keep up with the latest technology and techniques in their field, so they attend multiple podiatry seminars throughout the year. They then take that information back to patients and educate them about their foot and ankle conditions and the modern ways to treat those problems. As a result, two of the practice's doctors were recently voted to be the Best Podiatrist in Lehigh Valley Magazine's Best of the Valley competition and in Morning Call's Readers' Choice award competition.

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.
Dr. Robert Detweiler and medical aesthetician Jill Basile use therapies tailored to individual skincare needs to help clients look their best. Using medical-grade products, including the center's own custom skincare line, aestheticians tend to skin with custom facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and glycolic-acid peels. They also use the Cutera Cool Glide and Lime Light lasers to improve skin tone or remove unwanted hair and spider veins. Dr. Detweiler and his team can also improve skin condition with wrinkle correction in the form of Botox injections, dermal fillers, or encouraging clients to smile only with their eyes.
The staff at Magic Touch Massage Therapy soothes aches and alleviates stress with massages in a slew of modalities. Swedish treatments lull clients into states of tranquility, deep-tissue massages target more persistent aches, and foot massages include relaxing, aromatic foot soaks.
Skin Laser & Surgery's Dr. Dendy Engelman, a board certified dermatologist recently named Director of Dermatologic Surgery at New York Medical College in Manhattan, expertly rewinds facial time with FDA-approved injectables. During the appointment, her steady-hands inject Botox or Dysport into wrinkle-etched facescapes, slowing down facial muscles and soothing them to sleep with a soft lullaby. Both Botox and Dysport may banish forehead furrows, crow's feet, and marionette lines from the visage for up to four months.
