Led by weight-loss guru Ray Wisniewski, the staff at Pittsburgh Body Wraps enfolds clients in natural body wraps designed to diminish cellulite. The wraps eschew clays, creams, and Saharan sands that can dry out the skin. Instead, they combine herbs and light pressure to increase circulation and lymphatic drainage. In turn, these effects help rid the body of toxins and fluids responsible for cellulite. The wraps are also designed to slim the body's circumference within 72 hours of treatment.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jerry DalCanton is good with kids. A member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and the resident expert at Kids First Chiropractic, he routinely aligns the spines of children, and he once served as a high-school basketball coach. But the doctor—whose credentials also include a postgraduate-level chiropractic certification in spinal trauma—hasn't limited his focus to kids. A past life saw him working as a chiropractor for the members of Pittsburgh's former lacrosse team; today he performs adjustments for both kids and adults, erasing spine-related pain with therapeutic exercise, nutrition programs, spinal manipulation, and—under the banner of Bodyworks Connection Massage—massage therapy.
During spinal-manipulation sessions, Dr. Jerry applies corrective pressure to both sides of an adult client's spine, aiming to restore alignment and enhance mobility in vertebral joints. He uses a gentler form of this treatment for children, helping them recover after one too many games of kids' caber tossing. Dr. Jerry and his staff also check for hard-to-find problems using 3-D posture analysis. Based on the results of these tests, he can create a recovery program that combines mirror-image exercises and adjustments.
Good health takes more than avoiding germs and accidents; it involves a little maintenance here and there. That’s why the staff at Panther Chiropractic, LLC offers services designed to help manage and mitigate the effects of tension, allergies, joint pain, and other common health issues. Dr. Danielle Marra spearheads the team, using her 12 years of chiropractic experience to adjust out-of-whack spines that cause inflammation and pain, design orthotics for clients on their feet all day, and send electrical stimulus to tight muscles. To supplement her chiropractic care, her staff offers alternative therapies, including laser acupuncture treatments.
At Montgomery Chiropractic & Wellness Springs, Dr. Kathryn Montgomery and her staff take a balanced approach to healing, teaching patients how to maintain good health as well as carrying out chiropractic treatments. The naturopathic services include everything from spinal screenings and trigger-point therapy to chiropractic massage, which helps treat maladies such as back pain and high blood pressure or aid in recovering from surgery or soft-tissue injuries.
