“Having suffered from chronic back pain, Pilates at Verve makes me feel strong, fit and most importantly manages my pain through efficient and effective whole-body workouts. Pilates at Verve works!” - Allison Halasza – Verve Member
I recently had my wedding in downtown Pittsburgh with the reception at the Doubletree. I currently do not live in the city, so I needed to find someone to take care of my hair and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding day. I scheduled an appointment with the Verve 360 for my trials. We had Monique and Julie. And let me tell you, THEY WERE FABULOUS! They were the perfect pair to take care of myself and the girls (including a grandma and the mother of the groom)! I got so many compliments on my wedding day updo! It was PERFECT! They were fun and efficient! I strongly urge you to use this salon for your wedding day! They even came to us instead of us having to go to the salon! Jennifer, the marketing manager, was there for me to call anytime I needed to ask a couple questions! I even emailed her a couple pictures for Monique to look at before the big day! Once again, Bravo Verve 360 for making my wedding day perfect!"

“Only three months since I’ve given birth and thanks to Pilates, I’m smaller than I used to be. Even my chronic neck pain and migraines are gone. No more trips to the chiropractor! I love Pilates and I love Verve. – Rubab O’Connor
“I used to be an avid runner, but after the birth of my son two years ago I started having sporadic low back pain that came to a head last summer. It was AWFUL, so I stopped working out entirely, and finally started seeing a chiropractor in the winter. Going once a week, I started feeling better, but still had pain. I got the OK to start working out again, but I decided to try Pilates and Yoga at Verve instead. All I can say is WOW! I am significantly stronger and more balanced. I also have new definition in my waist and have lost five pounds. Having to concentrate on your position and engagement at all times is almost meditative; it leaves no room for outside thoughts to creep in. Oh, and that back pain? Almost gone! The chiropractic visits are down to once per month. Thank you Verve,
– Rachel Booth
That was one of the best massage’s I’ve had. I thought nemocolin was the best. Laura was much better. My wife and I will be back for sure! – George Flacco
Being a touring musician for a living, I find I often need massage therapy to keep my body (and mind) in top shape. Recently upon arriving in Pittsburgh, I called the hotel concierge to ask for a referral of a therapist. They immediately recommended Aubre Stacknick. I couldn't be happier that they did. As a hard working drummer, my body withstands a lot of wear and tear. Quite often, I can't find a therapist skilled enough to relieve my aches and pains. Not only did Aubre's treatment offer relief, it crossed into the correction of old, untreated war wounds. I saved her business card and will absolutely contact her the next time I'm in Pittsburgh. I can honestly say, Aubre is one of the best massage therapists I've ever had the good fortune to meet." Michael Cartellone - drummer for Lynyrd Skynyrd
Dear Aubre,I wanted to write this letter to you to let you know what a wonderful contribution your work with me has been to the maintenance and improvement of my physical health over the last six months. As you know, I have several problem areas, primarily in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas of the spine. These tie into injuries over time including a major whiplash, as well as arthritis, bone spurs, and a general lack of flexibility. The combination of Pilates and your personal approach to therapeutic massage have produced sensational results. My only regret is that I didn't meet you sooner!! Carl W. Smollinger - President & CEO of Insurance Solutions Group, Inc.
Wanting to do something unique for my groomsmen for being a part of my wedding day, I turned to the folks at the Verve in Pittsburgh for some guidance. Micah led me to Jenn Lattimer who set up the ENTIRE event for me. When I met with Jenn on the Thursday prior to the wedding, I was in awe of the setting and ambiance of the studio. Jenn explained everything to me in detail and assured me that Saturday would run without a hitch. Nervous for my wedding, I walked into the studio with my groomsmen on Saturday and it was perfect! There were two barbers that provided incredible hot shaves for my groomsmen and a chair masseuse that provided relaxing 15 minute massages. Jenn had also set up catering for hoagies, snacks and her world famous bloody marys!
All of my groomsmen said that it was the best pre-wedding experience that they ever had. I was 100% satisfied and every groom in Pittsburgh should entertain the groomsmen experience I had at the Verve. Jenn was amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better service and quality.

Let me just preface this email by saying that you give such amazing service to your clients. From the moment I met you, you made me feel great. You are so welcoming, informative, caring and super talented! I love my hair cut! The staff shoul take a few lessons from you! Yes, I will get the mending line when I can afford it! I actually booked a treatment on this coming wednesday. So, hopefully getting treatments will help the condition of my hair.
It really was a pleasure meeting you and I'm so happy I found an awesome new stylist!
Have a great wknd:)
I'm emailing to tell you how much I love, love, love my hair... the color and the cut! Thanks bunches for taking so much time to really communicate with me and get things simply perfect. I absolutely treasure that you take such an interest in your clients and work to give us your best every time- it really shows how great you are at what you do! I am so glad I found you in Pittsburgh!!
I also wanted to send BIG congratulations to you again on "Elijah's Big Sister" (awwww, that is such a cute story! Sorry if I spelled his name wrong...). So very happy to hear your wonderful news yesterday!
All the best,
I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to commend one of your stylists, Jacquelyn. Although it took a few visits to land a spot in her chair, Jacquelyn has provided me with more knowledge, service and care than I have experienced in 10 years combined of getting my hair done. I have never met a stylist that so genuinely cares about her clients and their hair. I had an appointment scheduled last week for a 1 color process and it was decided then that my hair could wait a week for such treatment. As I felt terrible standing there, feeling like I just wasted her time, Jacquelyn actually welcomed a 45 minute conversation, sat me down and educated me on my hair. I left that night thinking what a wonderful woman I had been so fortunate to meet and so grateful for her time and knowledge. For the first time, I don’t feel like I am being sold or coaxed into doing something. Jacquelyn possesses such genuine care and concern for the well-being of her clients and their hair, which seem to be very rare qualities in the stylistic world. (at least in my experiences)
I walked away from the salon tonight and felt compelled to let you know what a wonderful employee you have. The only regret I have is that I didn’t come across her sooner!
Please express my gratitude to Jacquelyn.
Roxanne – Just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you for your time and effort yesterday. Was very educational and beneficial for me. Learned a ton about things I didn’t know and had a really professional experience there.
I got your phone message and wanted to get back to you. It has been sooo busy!
Everything was great and I felt very relaxed after my massage. It really helped my sinus issues and I was able to breathe for our weekend away, though I found out it turned to a sinus infection when I got home. As far as helping with the fibromyalgia, I think it definitely helped, and I know I felt good for a bit after, but couldn’t tell you the exact amount of time. I was also in my 2nd week of taking a new med for that so I’m not sure which was helping the most. All I know is the best reason for getting a massage for me is the relaxation. I am an elementary teacher and it is a stressful job. Massages really help me just let go of some of the tension I hold in my shoulders and back.
Thanks again for a great massage. I told my friend, who owns a spa/ wellness center down here about how you and her had very similar techniques. It’s hard for me to go to someone else because I love her style, but it was like seeing her away from home. If I ever find myself up in Pittsburgh again I will be sure to book something! I told my hubby he made a good choice with Verve J
My girlfriends and I came to Pittsburgh for the weekend and wanted to get Mani's and pedi's as we were attending an event at The Andy Warhol Museum. We walked in with no appointments on a Saturday morning and the friendly staff were able to accommodate us. The salon itself is well designed and looks clean and modern. The staff were amazing. Sam, was great! She took care of me and my friends and was really friendly and professional. I had a pedicure and my brows waxed and I'm more than happy with both. In addition, we were able to bring some wine in (it's a girls weekend after all) and when we ran out (shocker) they gave us more! Everyone here was really nice and we were all happy with our services! The prices are also very reasonable. Thanks Sam! My pedi looked amazing with my sky high heels!
I've never had a better stylist. Jacquelyn is always ready with new ideas when I want a change and teaches me how best to style my new cuts. She also focuses on the health of my hair during the coloring process. I've had my hair colored for a long time and I had a lot of frizz and stray hairs from breakage. I've gone to Jacquelyn about six times and my hair is much smoother and the color is still exactly what I want and better.
Thank you all so very much for lending yoga mats to the Vision Serve Alliance group at our recent conference at the Renaissance. Your kindness and support for the "blind yoga" session was greatly appreciated and a real help with last minute details. Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to all!
With Gratitude, Carol
