I have been a professional hockey player for 20 years and in those 20 years I’ve been a diehard fitness enthusiast. Conditioning at Verve Wellness is one of the best things I ever decided to do when faced with the realization of retirement and wanting to “go out” on top. Since working with Verve through regular Integrated Bodywork and Pilates my posture has improved, core strength fortified, leg strength enhanced, and joint mobility and flexibility have increased 10 fold. My stamina is significantly greater. I’m playing hockey stronger and more youthful then when I began my career 20 yrs ago and this was only after a few sessions.

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. 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! The staff was there for me to call anytime I needed to ask questions! I even emailed pictures to look at before the big day! Once again, Bravo Verve 360 for making my wedding day perfect!”

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. It was amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better service and quality.

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,

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.

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!!

Too many times people write letters when they want to complain. I am writing this letter to commend your staff and especially management. We had a bridal shower for my daughter on November 6, 2010 that consisted of mini-manicures, mini-pedicures and a choice of a facial or massage. We brought wine, were given a table and area to sit and chat while waiting on our services. It was extremely busy when we arrived, and I got a little concerned. HOWEVER, no worries as the staff took over and it could not have been run more efficiently.
I communicated with the staff for quite a while going over details, etc. It was a wonderfully organized and the day could not have gone any smoother.
Every single person on your staff was very pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. We all had different services and everyone that attended loved each and every one.
In my mind, they all deserve a pat on the back and perhaps a little more in their paychecks.
Micaiah was very thorough, professional, personable and I will be sure to recommend your salon. It was nice to recognize a familiar face in Linda Williams, who is also quite an asset as a fitness person.
Thanks for the fun morning!
I wanted to write to thank all of the staff for the wonderful experiences they gave me, my mom, and maid-of-honor as part of my pre-wedding days and wedding weekend. From the massage to manicure to hair styling, it was all beautiful. You have a great salon, and you really treated us so well.
I especially want to thank Jacqueline for the most gorgeous wedding hair ever. It was totally amazing – braided bun with the sides rolled back into it… My maid of honor had a gorgeous updo. It was so elegant and fun!
For the first time in my life I love my natural hair. I’ve never received so many compliments on it and never liked it until you! – K.H.
