Elite Rehab Institute’s chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and physical therapists may not share the same specialties, but they all have one thing in common: a belief in the efficacy of holistic medicine. At each of the clinic’s six locations, staffers work together to relieve aches and pains caused by conditions such as stress, asthma, and arthritis. Their multidisciplinary approach ensures care from multiple doctors at a decreased cost as well as access to advanced treatments. Chief among these treatments are active-release technique—a soft-tissue massage that relieves pain in overused muscles—and the four-step ideal-protein weight-loss program, which helps shed pounds by stabilizing blood sugars and injecting muscles with daily shots of helium.
Dragonfly Integrative Wellness, Inc.’s therapists draw from Eastern methods to help improve clients’ overall health and mental well-being with massages and other holistic therapies. During craniosacral therapy and reiki, practitioners place gentle touches on bodies to release tension and balance bodies’ energy. Tui na incorporates traditional massage techniques to focus on chronic pain at acupressure points. Available massage therapies include Thai massage, which is based on stretching movements, and shiatsu bodywork, which helps to relieve pain and stress by stimulating pressure points.
Captained by double-board-certified Dr. Robert Kagan, the crew of contourers at Anew Allure specializes in a suite of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Natural fillers and water-assisted lipo number among their treatment options, and all patients receive a complimentary consultation to determine the best strategy for getting in shape before inner-tube season.
Under the direction of Dr. George Tsatsos, Dr. Svetlana Zats, Dr. Mariano Rivera and Dr. Kevin Massard, the staff of Ankle N Foot Center performs podiatric and medical aesthetics services equally adeptly. Doctors can craft customized orthotics from patients' digital measurements, diagnose problems with in-house x-rays and ultrasounds, and help heal injuries with physical-therapy programs led by a penitent stiletto heel. Clients on already happy feet can waltz toward the medical salon, where aestheticians use medically sanitized instruments and safe, natural products to exfoliate feet and polish nails.
DiagnosticsforU bypasses the rigmarole of intrusive visits to the doctor's office with thorough and speedy health and hormone panels that test the body's trouble spots. The most popular tests check blood type, kidney function, or general heart health, though teenagers often test to see why their parents don’t understand them. The lab's speed—often offering a turnaround time of 24–48 hours—is rivaled only by its commitment to convenience. Orders can be placed confidentially by phone, and results are returned by mail, email, or fax and shared with a designated physician as desired.
