Studio director Simona Cipriani, like all the instructors at The Art of Control, trained under Romana Kryzanowska, who studied directly under Joseph Pilates himself. The studio, therefore, prides itself on being not only certified, but a direct ideological descendant of Pilates' very inventor.
Many clients come to The Art of Control to take part in group or private lessons, and particularly advanced students can get specialized independent instruction. More than one type of Pilates is practiced at the studio. In mat Pilates, participants work through routines atop their own colorful rectangles, and in reformer Pilates, the Pilates-proprietary workout machines provides resistance to counter participants’ movements, creating an additional strength-training element to build strength and muscle definition. Other classes may incorporate props, such as bands, wedges, and rubber chickens wearing novelty-size sunglasses. Feldenkrais and Zumba classes also speckle the calendar, and teacher-training programs prepare students to teach. Personalized nutrition programs and massage therapy further spoil bodies and increase health. The Art of Control also hosts and participates in events and workshops.
The technicians at Laser Plus Cosmetique wield an FDA-approved laser to evict ingrown and unwanted hair from all areas of the body. They also utilize lasers to reduce facial redness and the appearance of acne scars and oversized pores. To complete their commitment to healthy, young-looking skin, they also administer microdermabrasion to exfoliate and remove fine lines, as well as chemical peels, which are known to treat hyper pigmentation.
Treatment at Advanced Laser & Medical Spa of Rye usually begins with a consultation with a medical aesthetician with supervision from board-certified medical director, Dr. Micheline Giovani. Being onsite allows her to oversee the med spa?s staff and array of services, which include Botox injections, microdermabrasions, non-invasive facelift Ultherapy, and chemical peels. More technologically advanced cosmetic techniques include acoustic-wave therapy for thickening collagen in cellulite-prone areas and laser therapy for removing skin blemishes and body hair.
Nuriel Abramov and Gabriel Abrams founded Numi & Company because they "wanted to give Westchester women something that's fresh and new." So they took their upscale Manhattan training and experience?some of which included styling celebrities for Allure and contestants on America's Next Top Model?out of the city and built two sleek and acclaimed salon locations. Nominated Best of the Decade by Westchester Magazine, both Abramov and Abrams know that a refined yet friendly atmosphere isn't enough to lure style-savvy women to their door?their first concern is hair. Abrams? less-is-more approach shapes the line of attack for their team of stylists, who focus on finding what works best for the individual rather than recreating what hair looks great on a beach ball.
Voted best of Westchester for four years by Westchester Magazine, Euro Laser Services quells rebellious bristles using state-of-the-art GentleYAG laser technology, which is kind to skin tones fair, tanned, and dark. After a consultation with a friendly laser lord, hair-plagued patrons kick back for their first laser hair-removal session, in which variable pulses of light target follicles and forbid future growth. An additional two treatments will be scheduled for the same area to set clients on the path to total fur domination.
