Dr. Steven W. Haywood?s proficiency at transforming smiles earned him a spot on ABC2?s Extreme Makeover Special, and his staff strives to recreate the calming atmosphere of a spa in their office. In cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Haywood fills gaps between teeth with porcelain veneers and straightens smiles with Invisalign and orthodontia. Lasers whiten teeth in fewer than two hours or help the doctor sniff out cavities without calling in a specialized bloodhound to follow the scent of decay through your mouth. An intraoral video camera sends mouth-views to a TV screen, letting both doctor and patient share the same view of each tooth.
The Athletic Club of York, co-owned by a national collegiate-racquetball champion and an AFAA certified personal trainer, ensures a friendly, laid-back atmosphere with a down-to-earth staff that strives to remember each visitor by name. The 26,000-square-foot gym unfurls enough elbow space for exercisers to wrestle with strength and cardio equipment before overcoming post-workout soreness with services such as massage therapy. The gym's communal vibe also fosters the positive tone of group fitness classes, during which feet master Zumba steps or kickboxing strikes in an aerobic studio. Guests can plunge into the indoor lap pool for self-guided strokes, aquatic programs, or swimming lessons, while children break down and rapidly reassemble slingshots at a Kidz Fit Club boot camp.
Ideal Wellness and Weight Loss is well aware of the seemingly impossible nature of substantial weight loss, which is why they have curated a selection of long-term regimens and suggestions to aid and motivate patients on their paths toward slimness.

Licensed massage therapist Thomas Snyder works in two different settings: clients’ homes and his own homey, red-brick studio. In either case, he relaxes muscles and relieves tension with a diverse range of bodywork treatments, including therapeutic massage, craniosacral therapy, and reflexology.

“My back is killing me!” Steve Corson regularly heard complaints like this while working in the restaurant biz. The desire to quell backaches and workplace stress is what eventually drove him to become a licensed massage therapist.

Steve also tends to sports-related injuries, and he tackles painful knots built up over time or after pro games of Twister using trigger-point therapy.
As the founder of Yorktown Chiropractic, Dr. Philip Jeanmenne calls upon his advanced knowledge of anatomy and his experiences as an athlete to treat sports injuries and tend to the stresses of everyday life. His enthusiasm for the mechanisms of movement extends to his assistant, Amanda, who works closely with patients to address their concerns during exams and consultations. X-ray, ultrasound, and electronic muscle-stimulation equipment lines the office walls, lending assistance to Dr. Phil as he decompresses spines and tends to vertebral discs scratched from overplaying. On his rare breaks from providing and overseeing chiropractic, massage, and nutritional services, Dr. Phil strives to better understand the body’s needs through continuing education.
