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.
Chiropractic medicine and massage therapy join forces at Greater Pittsburgh Joint and Muscle Center, a wellness studio helmed by chiropractic doctor Frank J. Verri. Here, licensed massage therapists ferry minds and muscles toward states of relaxation that are deeper and more satisfying than a moon crater filled with homemade chili. To dissolve painful knots and unclench tense muscles, they borrow Eastern techniques such as foot reflexology to augment Western modalities such as deep-tissue massage. Swedish bodywork teems with long, gliding strokes and gentle taps that awaken endorphins and promote blood flow, sending oxygen coursing into corporeal outliers such as fingers, toes, and conjoined invisible friends. In addition to kneading sinews and adjusting spines, attentive staffers help clients boost their nutrition IQs with diet consultations and weight-loss programs.
NeüSmile’s bread-and-butter cosmetic service is its express teeth-whitening system. The system uses cold-light technology to help whiten teeth in less than 30 minutes, and clients administer the treatment themselves, allowing them to prep for family photos, special events, or attempts to draw the attention of aloof ivory hunters. NeüSmile broadens its aesthetic scope to eyeballs with Lavish Lashes, an associate business that specializes in eyelash extensions. Certified professionals attach synthetic lashes to eyelids, enhancing natural lashes for up to six weeks.
