The body is a complex system—with slight imbalances in one area often setting off discomfort in another. Dr. Anthony DiCesaro at Whitehall Health Centre works to make cures simpler and address a wide range of maladies. He explains to potential patients how a spinal realignment can reduce pain or how wrist supports can prevent future injury for competitive rock-paper-scissors players. To this list of traditional treatment methods, Dr. DiCesaro adds cold-laser therapy. The laser’s gentle glow doesn’t heat tissue, yet it inspires cellular activity that can expedite the healing process, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and boost the collagen production. Different methods are also used inside Whitehall Health Centre’s cosmetic division, where technicians use the SlenderRay Lipo treatment to flatten unwanted curves and a blue LED light to aid in teeth-whitening treatments.
Vortex Wellness & Aesthetics staffs a cadre of board-certified physicians and permanent-makeup artists, all of who work to help clients achieve their physical goals. The team has added on specialists through the years – Vortex Wellness originally opened as a weight-loss center and later expanded to include vitamin counseling, cosmetic gynecology, and chronic pain management services. They've also added locations–Vortex Wellness opened a new center in Smyrna in the fall of 2014 after success in L.A. and Long Beach.
Body Design of Pittsburgh and its expertly trained staff trim fat and inches off bodies with a virtually pain-free, FDA-approved Zerona body-slimming laser treatment. Touted as a safer alternative to surgery, the method allows patients to remain fully active during each 40-minute treatment and has little to no side effects. Patients will relax while lasers emit beams into their sides, diminishing waists, hips, thighs, and drumsticks by a combined three to nine inches (results vary depending on the individual). A preliminary medical consultation will determine if customers with thyroid disease or diabetes are eligible for treatment; the procedure is not recommended for those with other metabolic disorders, those who have had cancer within the past year, or taffy gums.
Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Grice and Mary Brown combined their respective training in chiropractic care and nutritional counseling when designing their center's assorted weight-loss services. To jump-start clients’ fitness goals, they wield medical-grade technology, including a body-contouring YOLO Curve laser lipolysis system and fluoroscopic x-ray technology that can capture images of clients’ moving skeletons or daydreams. Patients can reinforce in-office procedures through detoxifying at-home cleanses or by following the medically designed Ideal Protein weight-loss program, which helps stabilize blood-sugar levels while promoting fat loss and preserving muscle tone.
At Pittsburgh Alternative Health, friendly staffers join Doctor of Naturopathy Darrell Misak and needle-free acupressure specialist, Dr. Wan Huang to restore and maximize bodily health and mental well-being with holistic treatments. Toxins are expelled during sauna sessions, where infrared light saps contaminants from muscles, and relaxing ionic footbaths, which kiss the feet with gentle electrical charges. Relaxed patrons can glide into a private mental-rest room, where a programmed audio-visual show lures minds into a state of alert relaxation with music, lights, and footage of baby pandas learning to cartwheel. The health center can also aid patients on the road to health with analytic testing. During an EAV test, technicians use a fusion of mechanical methods and ancient acupuncture pressure points to study the body’s energy. The results can pinpoint sensitivities to foods, chemicals, or existentialist poems that may be decreasing energy or causing other health problems.
