Robin Dove Hair Studio’s color and style team consider hair their main artistic medium, sculpting beautiful looks for everyday clients and the high-profile mugs of local celebrities and news reporters. An educator for J Beverly Hills Salon, owner Robin Dove is experienced with hair of all textures and continually enlists in training to keep abreast of the haircare industry's latest trends and grooviest new ideas about running with scissors. These training sessions enable her to pass knowledge on to her staff, which can handle anything from basic haircuts and updos to extensions, weaves, and formaldehyde-free keratin straightening treatments. The studio’s stylists create a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere as they pour complimentary coffee for clients visiting early in the day and arm afternoon guests with glasses of wine.
Donna Kimmel fostered her passion for healing at both Penn State's Professional School of Massage and the Frankford School of Nursing. Now, in the comfort of a cozy, private treatment room, she draws upon her training as well as 12 years of massage-therapy experience to slacken achy muscles with Swedish strokes or the firm pressure of deep-tissue bodywork. A heated massage table aids Donna's attempts to make tension melt from sore shoulders and backs, and glowing candles help soothe stressed minds and draw out any moths that may be hiding in connective tissues.
Owner and founder Gilda Smith specializes in helping clients to heal through massage therapy by finding mental and physical balance. She also leads a team of other experienced therapists who specialize in a number of modalities including prenatal, sports, and myofascial therapy. Exhale's staff of massage therapists, with more than 10 years of experience, use their expertise to calm clients' tense sinews by incorporating a unique blend of various modalities in their massage techniques.
In one of seven private treatment rooms, guests lie down for 60- to 120-minute massages performed by licensed massage therapists. Both male and female massage therapists help clients relax with massages in a variety of modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and reflexology.
David Arnold Hair Salon's staff, helmed by a father-and-son team, tends to tufts within a salon filled with classic leather chairs and a hardwood floor. The Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatment, pioneered by expert stylist Peter Coppola, uses a natural, formaldehyde-free keratin solution to penetrate fuzzy follicles and reduce frizz that result from dryness or poking at electrical sockets. The two-to-three hour smoothing session begins with a consultation, during which David Arnold's shaft-savvy staff discuss expected results, tips for upkeep, and any additional questions. The treatment tames locks of all shapes, lengths, and colors, keeping hair in line for three to five months.
Doctor of Chiropractic Ron Siscoe has learned a great deal about the human body’s inner workings throughout his 12 years in practice, beginning with the basic fact that guides his multi-faceted approach: no two bodies are the same. Dr. Ron shares his passion for individualized care with Ovation Chiropractic’s staff of chiropractic assistants and massage therapists, all of whom team up to relieve clients’ back pains and correct their unhealthy life habits.
The clinic’s health services combine drug-free chiropractic care with nutritional counseling in an integrated program, reflecting the staff’s belief that holistic treatments lead to longer-lasting health. Personal consultations and physical examinations typify the clinic’s individualized approach; rather than relying merely on x-rays to get to know his clients’ spines, Dr. Ron checks with his own eyes and hands to ensure that vertebrae are in place and vestigial tails are wagging healthfully. Along with its normal hours, the office can accommodate busy schedules or emergencies with after-hours care.
