In a career spanning more than two decades, Doctor of Chiropractic Dan Lavanga leads Lavanga Holistic Center's team of therapists and healers to nourish every element of human health. Through a system called the Circle of Wellness, staffers aim to enhance well-being through seven focused facets, including nutrition, stress management, and detoxification, bolstering bodies from every angle like a projectile assault in a vitamin store. The center employs this approach to strengthen statures with a diverse range of services, including targeted-exercise training, life coaching, and PDYoga, which merges meditative poses with techniques aimed at achieving life goals.
At reYou Massage, therapists specialize in a handful of massage styles that aim to undermine bodily aches. The staff pulls from a repertoire that includes massage modalities such as Swedish, medical, deep-tissue, and Esalen—a soothing modality featuring long, slow strokes that can travel the body's full length—to blast through tension faster than a house of cards divided against itself falls. After a session of up to two hours, many clients note a heightened sense of relaxation, a boost in circulation, and a greater range of motion, which in turn improves the believability of their windmill impressions.
Despite the presence of professional technicians, high-end equipment, and medical-grade products, New Image Medspa isn't a doctor's office. It's a spa where medically trained professionals strive to create a relaxing and friendly environment and count cost effectiveness as a top priority. Their treatments span from general spa services such as facials, massage, and chemical peels to med-spa approaches such as laser hair removal, blepharoplasty, or PhotoGenesis. They also oversee a slew of male-centric services to help guys achieve smoother, handsomer blue or yellow M&M shell.
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.
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.
The Pink Orchid MedSpa, an extension of the Women’s Health Network regional Obstetric and Gynecological center, combines specialty medical service and traditional spa treatments, all under the watchful eye of a medical director. The Swedish massage rebalances minds and soothes muscles with 50–55 minutes of long, light movements to improve circulation followed by deeper, muscle-loosening motions performed with Swedish meatball gloves, with 5–10 minutes for removal and re-donning of your spa robe. For visages in need of perking up or calming down, the signature facial tackles individuals' specific skin issues. Aestheticians first identify problem pores under a magnifying glass, whisking away whiteheads and blackheads and exfoliating dead skin before massaging mugs into relaxed, doughy contentment. To finish, the aesthetician coats the face in a mask of Germaine de Capuccini skincare products specifically chosen to nourish each client's particular skin type.
