Massage therapists, fitness instructors, and nutritional consultants join forces at Pocono Body Wellness Studio to promote holistic health in all its forms. Therapists destress musculature with acupuncture and numerous massage modalities as instructors lead fitness classes such as yoga, Pilates, and cycling. Elsewhere in the studio, dietitians devise custom nutrition regimens, and resident aestheticians further enhance bodies with facials, waxes, and mani-pedis. The diverse staff makes frequent contributions to charities, donating 5% of the proceeds of every massage package they book to a children's hospital in Philadelphia.
Walking into Dr. Michael A. Esposito’s office, one of the first things patients see are the autographed astronaut photographs bedecking the walls. But among them, they can also spot some of the articles on cosmetic dentistry he’s penned for publications such as Contemporary Esthetics and Lifestyle. Although Dr. Esposito performs the full range of dental services, it’s in beautifying smiles where his skill really shines. Apart from whitening treatments and veneer procedures, he also performs laser gum contouring, which shapes gum lines with less trauma than a blade.
Part boutique, part 1940s-inspired beauty emporium, All Gussied Up channels the charm of yesteryear while offering modern types of treatments. In June of 2012, Kelly Pettis opened the summer- and retro-themed store. Inside, Kelly and her staff apply spray tans, whiten teeth, and apply permanent makeup. All Gussied Up also has a boutique that stocks swimwear, retail items, and denim from brands such as Steady Clothing, ChicStar, Despi, and Bombshell Bay. Shoppers can stop by on a Thursday evening for their special Un-Housewives Club monthly event.
Having practiced dentistry for nearly 30 years, Dr. Robert Ruyak excels at delving into dentures, offering the latest toothcare techniques and carefully exercised services. During your visit, Dr. Ruyak will perform an exam to assess the state of your ivories before photographing them with state-of-the-art digital x-ray technology. Finally, to counter the teeth-yellowing effects of coffee, tobacco, and sucking on dandelions, the doctor will make impressions of your upper and lower chompers to create whitening trays. Used in conjunction with a specialized bleaching solution, the trays will allow customers to increase the brightness of their smiles in the comfort of their own home.
To more effectively treat a range of skin and hair types, the medically supervised clinicians at Style MedSpa/Laser Hair Removal Center utilize a range of advanced technologies, including long-pulsed Alexandrite, Diode, YAG, and IPL cosmetic laser systems. Although these systems mainly target unwanted stubble, the staff also treats signs of sun damage, fine lines, and spider veins with similar laser therapies. Botox and other dermal fillers are also available to combat aging. Even the teeth-whitening treatments and exfoliating facials rely on cutting-edge equipment from NASA's top-secret spas.
A visit to Celebrations Salon can be just like going to a concert on a bright summer day—you'll get a tan while listening to music you love. The salon's Velocity HP1000 tanning bed makes its temporary tenant feel at home by pouring her iPod's tunes out through its subwoofer and four speakers, all while three banks of lamps impart an even tan. Beyond offering high-tech bed bronzing and Norvell airbrush tanning, Celebrations Salon's staff turns keratin sheets into their own tiny canvases. After mani-pedis on cushy new chairs with disposable linings, they let loose their inner Picasso and adorn nails with eye-catching art such as polka dots, tiny cupcakes, and Thanksgiving-themed pilgrims and turkeys. And they aren’t the only creative minds in the shop: hairstylists use scissors to slice through split ends and create elegant face-framing layers. They also highlight manes, add an ombre effect, or totally immerse strands in every color from soft gold tones to rich purples.
Since 1979, the staff of 24-7 Fitness Clubs has made it their mission to obliterate any barriers keeping their members from working out. Each club is open 24 hours a day year-round, with free childcare available during specific times of day. That commitment to availability helps even the busiest people find time to hop on Nautilus and Cybex strength-training circuits, StairMasters, and other equipment. Group fitness classes get students sweating as they execute punches in Turbo Kick cardio-kickboxing sessions or dance to Zumba's Latin-inspired workouts. Full-body boot-camp workouts are also available, mixing in calisthenics, strength training, and agility drills to continuously challenge bodies. All of the clubs’ personal trainers hold bachelor's degrees in health-related fields and have national certifications from accredited organizations, unlike less qualified trainers certified by arcade arm-wrestling machines.
After their workouts, members can unwind in the whirlpool, sauna, or steam rooms, then drop off their free rental towels for cleaning. For sports lovers, the Allentown location also boasts basketball, volleyball, squash, and badminton courts, as well as 11 outdoor and 8 indoor tennis courts.
