The aestheticians at Spa in the Hollow believe in indulgence. Operating under the philosophy that life is "sweeter with a little instant gratification and self-indulgence," they've welcomed guests to their peaceful spa for over a decade. Visitors can begin their journeys in the Serenity Room, taking some light refreshment while basking in the glow of a fireplace. Then, for an elemental contrast, they might lie down beside a waterfall for a massage in the garden gazebo, set in a landscape that includes a pond landscaped with Eastern-style trees, rocks, and grasses. Drawing on a different kind of vegetation, mango or coconut lime pedicures soften feet as the hands cradle a complimentary cocktail designed to make their insides feel tropically smooth.
The doctors of Burnett Family Chiropractic & Sports Performance were all athletes before they became doctors. They each have an intimate understanding of the demands and tolls of physical exertion and have devoted themselves to helping patients manage and do away with pain. They offer a variety of chiropractic treatments such as hyperbaric therapy and spinal decompression. Med-spa services, including noninvasive laser-lipo treatments and laser hair removal, are also available.
At Pittsburgh Chiropractic, Dr. Carr runs the wellness gamut by straightening spines, alleviating pain due to injuries, performing physiotherapy, and counseling clients on nutrition and weight loss. Patients kick off their visit with a consultation and a thorough 66-point examination, during which the doctor thoroughly explores bodies in search of problem sources and prehensile Pegasus wings. A skilled technician then snaps two x-rays to reveal the inner goings-on among vertebrae to locate underlying ailments and to provide a visual record that maps long-term spinal health. Patients conclude their visit with a one-hour massage, wherein the massage therapist delves their dexterous fingers into muscles to work out kinks and locate pockets of stress with skillful, intuitive strokes. In certain situations, Dr. Carr may recommend a follow-up visit to discuss findings from the first visit.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
