About Us

Power of Touch Wellness is a unique treatment clinic dedicated to restoring movement and alleviating pain caused by dysfunctional muscle tissue.  This begins with a thorough medical history, along with an evaluation of  posture, mobility, body mechanics, and any factors that may perpetuate the pain. Treatment consists of gentle, specialized and non-invasive manual therapies.

We also  provide instruction for simple movements and self-treatment techniques that may be performed by the client in the comfort of his or her own home. We strongly encourage our clients to become actively involved in their own care, as this greatly enhances the extent and speed of recovery.

Our Locations

Power of Touch Wellness maintains treatment locations in Forest Hills and Shadyside with free parking located directly adjacent to the buildings. We can be easily accessed from Downtown, various City neighborhoods, and many surrounding suburbs. Privacy, comfort and a relaxing atmosphere characterize all of our treatment spaces, without the frustrations of long waits or noisy waiting rooms. All appointments are personally scheduled to maximize our clients’ convenience.

Anita Scaglione, Owner and Pain Relief Specialist

Anita-1Anita Amato Scaglione is a pain relief specialist, board certified in Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy. She established Power of Touch Wellness so that she could follow her own vision of eliminating pain. Her unique approach of using a variety of gentle, pain-free methods has surprised many clients who previously thought that painful therapies were required to cure their problems. Anita believes in keeping a child’s mind—innovative, flexible and unwilling to accept “it’s not possible” as an option. She applies the same thorough, analytical approach to solving her clients’ pain problems as she did in her previous career as a successful trial lawyer for many years.

Jamie Rigatti, Massage Therapist

jamie 2

Jamie is a licensed massage therapist and a graduate of Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy.  She believes in the body’s ability to heal itself when space is created by removing harmful stressors. In our touch-deprived society, massage is an essential tool  in the healing process. Jamie’s approach to touch is moderately gentle “with a kick” when needed. She is trained in Holistic Reflexology, Swedish and Deep Tissue massage, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Trigger Point work and Raindrop Technique. She is very intuitive, and loves her work.

Jamie’s philosophy: “No one is broken – massage is one facet of our journey back to wholeness.”
