For over 60 years, The Mane Attraction has helped to beautify the locks of Lansdowne residents. Since 1949, four sets of owners have welcomed guests, with the current owners and their team of stylists taking up residence in 2001. Just as the style of coiffures has evolved over the years, so too has the salon’s list of services–the roster now includes Keratin treatments.
The licensed stylists at A Dye'N Sensation Beauty Lounge can't be shocked by a daring look. From mohawks to electric-blue hair to purple extensions, they've seen it all at their shop, and relish in creating bold statements to match their clients' personalities. In addition to their extreme-color services, they also create natural-looking highlights, colors, and cuts, which are sure to freak out those at this year's Burning Man. Particularly, they specialize in blonde colors and highlights. Their services also extend to eyebrowing waxing and prepping gals for special occasions with updos.
Michelle Delbonifro began her career in 1996, when she received certification as a massage therapist and opened Main Line Therapeutic Massage and Spa. She didn?t stop there. After hypnosis helped her quit smoking?which is the most satisfying job to quit?she went on to study with the American Guild of Hypnotists, becoming certified in 2005. By 2006, she added the credential of licensed aesthetician to her CV and began administering facials, chemical peels, and waxing at her salon.
Today, Michelle helms Main Line alongside staff members Sue and Jessica. The trio doles out services ranging from relaxing therapeutic and organic stress relief massages to cellulite and toning treatments. They brighten and smooth complexions with crystal- or diamond-tipped microdermabrasion tools, and administer anti-aging facials to combat fine lines and wrinkles or gentlemen?s facials make even the roughest of men look gentle. Beyond skin treatments and bodywork, Michelle continues her work as a hypnotist by helping clients shatter all sorts of habits, including smoking and insomnia.
The team renders these myriad treatments amid the sound waves of relaxing music, the scents of calming aromas drifting through the room, antiques, stained glass, and a fireplace.
The chiropractor behind 4700 Chiropractric & Rosetree Wellness Center, Dr. Pete Sottile, treats a variety of conditions, from headaches to back pain and whiplash from auto accident. But no matter what he's treating, he always tends to the central hub of the nervous system, the spine. The idea is to fix the root cause of these ailments, the same way staying up all night fixes the root cause of snoring.
Dr. Sottile doesn't do it alone; other specialists help too. A licensed nutritionist, for example, helps visitors revamp their diets, and an acupuncturist aids energy flow through the body by inserting thin, hair-like needles. The clinic's new fitness classes, meanwhile, boost flexibility and endurance with yoga, Pilates, and three types of Zumba.
With more than 30 licensed massage therapists and four area locations, Healing Hands Massage is on call seven days a week to bring relief to gridlocked muscles. Swedish-style therapeutic massages calm tense muscles and overworked minds with light-to-firm pressure and various kneading techniques. Deep pressure massages assuage tight muscles that require extra convincing, and pregnancy massages provide relief to expecting mothers whose joints ache from the added weight of carrying around future grown-ups. Massage therapists also make house calls for customers who’d rather receive bodywork in the comfort of their homes, and haul their massage chairs to offices or conventions to appease the overworked masses.
