The team of aestheticians and clinicians at Félicité Day Spa combine medical spa treatments with salon cosmetics to beautify faces and bodies. Using professional-grade skincare products from iS Clinical, PCA Skin, Nelly De Vuyst, Klapp, and Bubalina Natural Organics, they whisk away cells damaged by years of sun and wind exposure during microdermabrasion treatments and European facials. For work south of the neckline, their cellulite-reducing body treatments tighten bodies for bikini season, while airbrush tanning allows for a beach bronze without ever having to eat sand. They round out their large selection of treatments with LED whitening for the teeth and tinting of the eyebrows and eyelashes.
At Scott Medical Health Center, a multidisciplinary team promotes wellness with traditional medicine, holistic alternatives, and advanced diagnostic testing technology. The staff—which includes two physicians, three doctors of chiropractic, and a licensed physical therapist—believes health issues stem from three major areas: trauma from falls or injuries, everyday stress, and toxins found in food, water, and slowly absorbed heavy-metal lyrics. To uncover and address malfunctions of the spine and nervous system, the crew offers orthopedic and neurological testing and services such as trigger-point therapy and rehabilitation exercise on state-of-the-art equipment. Those looking to shed extra pounds may enlist the staff of Scott's Medical Weight Loss Program, where astute technicians and counselors oversee medically supervised weight-loss programs, administer fat-burning vitamin B12 injections, prescribe appetite-control medication, and dish out nutritional counseling.
Jeffrey Grinnel knew he wanted to study massage to help escape the stressfulness of his career in business management; what he didn’t know was it would eventually ignite a new passion and jumpstart a new career path. He opened his massage practice BodyWorks of ShadySide 10 years ago, and since delving into his new line of work, Grinnel has developed the skills to whisk away muscular tension and stimulate physical health with massage techniques, skin treatments, and holistic healing. In the Swedish massage, the specialist uses a relaxing series of strokes called effleurage to invigorate muscles, stimulate the circulatory system, and undo muscle knots. He can also conduct a reflexology treatment, which reduces tension by targeting pressure points on the body.
At Chaney's Natural, revitalizing the body is about more than muscle manipulation. Of course, the massage team commands an array of hands-on modalities designed to ease pain and promote relaxation, including Swedish massage, trigger-point therapy, and even energy-based reiki sessions. But the studio goes beyond outer relaxation by offering nutritional counseling services and mind-centering activities such as yoga classes, drum circles, and posing really hard riddles. Chaney's spans two locations and its Monongahela office is completely handicap-accessible, down to its wheelchair-friendly hydraulic massage bed.
They've been in business for 22 years, and all that experience means the staff at Oliverio Hair & Nails has their job down to a science. Every service on the salon's menu can be done in under an hour—without scrimping. After years of calibrating just the right techniques, the team of hairstylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians can lavish ample attention on each client during their appointments, which can range from luxuriant mani-pedis that leave skin soft and nails bright, to waxing services that define features by shaping brows or removing unwanted fuzz and face-framing haircuts furnished with eco-friendly Aveda hair products that can make hair softer than a sculpture of a feather made from gelatin.
