Equal parts salon, spa, and fitness center, Studio G boasts a seasoned staff that applies its expertise to make clients look and feel great. Spa treatments such as mud wraps, facials, and massages refresh bodies and provide relaxation. Coiffures undergo similar rejuvenation, despite the fact that hair has no feelings, during salon sessions. Studio G's personal trainer Lisa Saunders helps bodies to release endorphins through focused exercises, and the on-site steam and dry saunas aid in stationary sweat quests.
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.
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.
Before helming Majestic Massage LLC, massage practitioner Dan fell off a roof and shattered his leg, altering his life path and exposing him to the wonders of physical therapy and massage therapy. Dan left the experience with newfound knowledge and an appreciation of recovery?an appreciation that drove him to become a therapist himself, helping others relax and shed stress, tension, and unwelcome shoulder-perched parrots.
