Body-contouring sessions at The Pittsburgh Aesthetic Laser Lipo Center begin when a technician straps a set of Lapex BCS LaserLipo paddles onto problem areas such as the belly, thighs, or arms. These paddles emit a low-level laser energy that breaks down fat cell membranes over the course of 40 minutes. Next, patients stand on a whole-body vibration platform for 10 minutes to help purge the expelled fatty acids from the body. The clinic staff recommends 8–12 treatments, along with maintaining a healthy diet, active lifestyle, and perfect wink, for optimal results.
At The Birch Center for Health, acupuncturist David Sokulski uses the skills that he mastered at New England School of Acupuncture— the oldest acupuncture school in the United States.

He also practices cosmetic acupuncture, a technique that increases circulation to restore a healthy glow to the skin. Birch branches and miniature smiling Buddhas adorn their peaceful studio.

Thankfully, kicking and punching have nothing to do with the treatments at North Hills Acupuncture Clinic, where Kenneth helps patients find natural pain relief with holistic techniques.

This encourages the body to work in harmony with itself, restoring balance from head to toe.
