With a vision to help people improve their quality of life, Sandy Wagner, a licensed massage therapist and graduate of Berks Technical Institute (BTI), in Wyomissing, founded Sensory Concepts here. She and her staff are dedicated to helping clients feel better and achieve their wellness goals. “When people feel better physically, it improves their outlook, emotionally and mentally,” Wagner shares. “This impacts daily life and increases their motivation to live a healthy lifestyle.”
Ultrashape is a recent addition to the Sensory Concepts menu of services that assists people that are already living a healthy lifestyle in contouring their bodies. Approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ultrashape is a non-invasive body shaping procedure that uses ultrasound technology. According to Wagner, the pain-free ultrasound technology is what makes Ultrashape different from other fat-reduction procedures that freeze fat or use heat.
“It targets subcutaneous fat that forms underneath the surface of the skin in areas such as belly, hips and thighs,” notes Wagner. “Eating healthy foods and exercising can assist in weight loss and body changes, but may not address stubborn areas of fat. Ultrashape is not a weight-loss solution, but rather a tool that contours the body. The body shaping results have been exciting for our clients.”
The patented technology sends a focused ultrasonic beam into a fatty area to destroy the fat cell, leaving no visible signs of treatment, and side effects are rare. The fat is released into the body in the form of triglycerides that are processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. An optical tracking guide protects the surrounding tissue and ensures that the new body contour is smooth, as well as uniform, without the discomfort, risk and downtime of surgery. “It is a comfortable procedure allowing clients to resume normal activities following the treatment session,” explains Wagner.
Licensed Massage Therapist Kelly Broughall, also a graduate of BTI, is a Sensory Concepts team member trained in the use of Ultrashape technology. A complimentary consultation takes place to determine if someone is an appropriate candidate. Generally, a series of three treatments within two weeks is recommended for the technology to be fully effective.
Aesthetic and waxing services are provided by Aubrey Schell, a licensed aesthetician and graduate of Metro Beauty Academy, in Allentown. She uses locally owned Circadia by Dr. Pugliese facial products, specializes in electrotherapy and laser extractions and is a certified makeup artist. Prior to facial sessions, Schell provides clients with a skin analysis to determine which treatments will be suitable for their individual needs. Circadia by Dr. Pugliese retail products are available for purchase. Waxing services are for both male and female clients.
Wagner employs the technique of orthopedic massage to restore structural balance throughout the body. The staff of licensed massage therapists also includes BTI graduates Tina Flood and Cindy Rothermel, along with Kayleigh Miller, a graduate of European Medical School of Massage, in Sinking Spring, who are passionate about customizing sessions that focus on the individual needs of clients. Additional modalities include couples, pregnancy, therapeutic, sports and deep tissue massage, reflexology and aqua foot detoxification. All services are by appointment only.
Corporate chair massage events can be scheduled at a business location on a regular basis for employee appreciation or wellness fairs. “The stress of meeting high-output deadlines or even just the daily office routine can devitalize staff significantly,” suggests Wagner. “A corporate massage event helps to relieve tension and anxiety, promotes relaxation and encourages healthy sleep patterns, thus resulting in a work environment where employees can thrive as individuals, yet work smoothly and integrated as teammates.”
The dedicated Sensory Concepts team understands the importance of maintaining good health that comes from genuinely caring for the body and nourishing the senses.
