Despite New You Medspa's name, its staff members don't totally transform their clients?the "new you" they create is the old you, subtly rejuvenated and polished. Their exact approach varies from client to client, based on an initial consultation. For some, they smooth away wrinkles with Botox and other dermal fillers; for others, they brighten complexions with SkinCeutical peels, using key ingredients such as salicylic acid and hydroxy acid.
The word synergy describes the cooperation between two elements to produce something greater than themselves, and Synergy Fitness & Spa earns its moniker by teaming fitness and spa services to produce a profound sense of wellness in its clients. Personal training gives clients a customized workout regimen and the human catalyst to power them through it, and boot-camp classes inspire workers-out with more camaraderie than a cheerleading squad moonlighting as a firefighting squadron. Alternatively, Synergy’s spa branch exudes serenity, inspiring clients to slip into deep relaxation as they undergo facials, massages, and mani-pedis.
All About Massage and Wellness's licensed therapists unburden weary physiques and consciences with a slate of soothing rubdowns performed with eco-friendly products. Six kinds of massages and an online inventory of bath products and lotions help clients experience spa-grade treatments in their own bathtubs as well as the center's two locations. Four types of aromatherapy can compliment massages or infuse lotions with ingredients such as ylang-ylang or eucalyptus; these blends help unwind tense muscles or boost immune systems without having to disguise vitamins in a plate of orzo pasta.
Dr. Ted Steliotes and his friendly staff assuage dental anxiety with general and cosmetic dentistry performed in a luxurious spa. Lit by brilliant chandeliers, a soothing fountain quietly laps as patients sink into plush, marshmallow-lined chairs in Steliotes Dental Spa's relaxing waiting room. During the comprehensive dental exam, tooth technicians investigate oral interiors, gently poking with sanitized instruments to detect dental distress and to tickle laughing devices. A full series of intraoral x-rays helps pinpoint problems lurking beneath the smile's surface, uncovering cavities and screening for signs of oral cancer. A hand massage pampers tired paws during the thorough cleaning, as Dr. Steliotes and his team floss between teeth and scrub and rinse enamel to purge popcorn kernels, plaque, tartar, and residual orange peels from childhood soccer-game halftimes. Steliotes Dental Spa's mouth menders also consult patients on the spa's Botox and Invisalign treatments for no additional charge and welcome each visitor to soak up the indulgent ambience while sipping a beverage from the coffee and juice bar.
Tricia Gilbert understands relaxation. A nationally certified massage therapist, she relieves aches and tension with modalities ranging from soothing Swedish to more therapeutic neuromuscular techniques. But she also promotes wellness with less common styles, such as reflexology, Chinese cupping, and even cellulite-smoothing skinny massage. For evidence of Tricia's knot-untangling skills, look no further than the football field?she attended the Pittsburgh Steelers' training camp to provide rejuvenating sports massages.
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.
