Precision Health & Wellness Center's experienced massage therapists offer a trio of massage modalities to eliminate stress and tension. Clients can reduce torso-trapped stress during a one-hour Swedish massage, which employs gentle strokes and firm kneading to intimidate knot bullies into leaving town. Deep-tissue massage utilizes targeted pressure and power movements to trigger a tendon chain reaction of relaxation that may also relieve chronic pain. Physical laborers, sportsmen, and veteran soccer balls can eliminate the aches of athletic competition with a sports massage, a treatment that soothes overworked muscles to enhance performance. Customers can treat their back muscles to a therapeutic session during Precision Health & Wellness Center's office hours on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Balance Health Center takes a holistic approach to wellness by offering chemical-free body treatments and classes that promote balance within the mind and body. The center's nontraditional healing approaches include acupuncture, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, treatments that all aim to heal the body without unnatural substances.
Spa services encompass waxing and seven-step facials, and bodies can acquire a bronze glow with the center's version of sunless tanning that relies on an organic, citrus-scented solution rather than the sun's hand-me-down rays. Relaxation's role in personal balance asserts itself in assorted scalp massages, hot-stone therapy, and aromatherapy as well as in spa massages that integrate essential oils. Helping guests to bring the center's philosophies home, Balance Health Center hosts classes and workshops on herbology, stretching, and yoga.
Dr. Kam Tareen trained in acupuncture at what might be an unexpected place: Harvard Medical School. The course he took there united ancient medicinal practices with Western ones, helping him to practice both. At Advanced Physician Acupuncture, though, he focuses on the former. His treatments include Japanese acupuncture, ear acupuncture for bodywide pain control, massage therapy, and nonsurgical Face-Lifts, which rely on acupuncture needles to stoke the face's production of collagen.
Mark Rues first became a believer in acupuncture after experiencing its effects firsthand. He now uses this ancient Chinese method at Five CrossRoads Acupuncture to help relieve patients of a variety of ailments—including stress, infertility, and back pain. Using a style developed by Japanese master Kiiko Matsumoto, Rues first performs palpations to uncover the best points for treatment. From there, he inserts hair-thin needles into the skin with the aim of boosting circulation and unblocking energy pathways.

A licensed acupuncturist with the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine, Jason Rinker is qualified to design treatment plans based on holistic assessments of his patients. Patients step into Mr. Rinker's office to discuss their goals for the visit, which can include relief from stress, pain, or inflammation caused by injury or unmediated pride. Treatment plans may cobble together an array of techniques that include acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion, an herbally based practice.
Owner and lead therapist Vernell Alexander built AVA wellness to realize a dream she first had in massage school. Today, Alexander spends her days at AVA Wellness helping people feel better.

Alexander specializes in massaging away injuries caused by demanding physical activities such as playing sports, dancing, or fleeing from Cujo in nightmares. She also has extensive training in reflexology and prenatal therapy, and has developed a line of antioxidant-rich body products that deeply hydrate the skin during spa packages.
