Certified Cymatherapy practitioner Stefanie L. Ku aims to restore health and balance to the body by working with the natural vibrations of cells within different bodily systems. During sound therapy, she combines voice, tuning fork, and the Cyma 1000 acoustic massager to target what she calls "out-of-tune" cells characteristic of ailments such as insomnia, allergies, back pain, and being Bob Dylan.
Her extensive study of classical and electronic music composition allows Stefanie to manipulate many different timbres and frequencies of sound as she responds to subtle changes in the body's natural song.

Perched a handful of blocks from the home stadium of the Pittsburgh Steelers, The Village Tavern and Trattoria serves as both post-game celebration spot and laidback neighborhood hotspot. Inside, cooks whip up classic Italian eats including pizza, pasta, and Ahi tuna entrees, while bartenders pour a wealth of drafts and craft specialty cocktails such as a jalapeno margarita and a vodka-infused banana split. Diners can take their pick of seating by lounging at one of the tables, bellying up to the bar, or cozying up on the year-round patio in hopes of catching an errant football.
At Bella Faccia Skin Care, pampering begins even before customers meet with a staff member. Those waiting in the lobby for a nourishing facial or exfoliating body scrub can sit down in a mechanical massage chair, where motorized arms uproot stress from its hiding place. The nearby coffee bar—also stocked with spring water, tea, and juice—houses single-serving Keurig machines that brew java from the small cups that grow on coffee plants. Of course, these conveniences are only a prelude to the pampering each client receives when enjoying a fruit and vitamin peel or eyebrow wax given by one of the experienced staff aestheticians.
