Massage Metta’s lead massage practitioner, Janine Narayadu, specializes in Active Isolated Stretching. Recognized by many physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists as an effective way to improve flexibility, the AIS method stretches muscles for no longer than two seconds at a time to lengthen the muscles without triggering reciprocal muscle contractions or requiring new, longer clothes. Along with stretching techniques, Janine employs more than 15 years of international massage experience to relieve tension with the firm kneads of deep-tissue massage or the gentle strokes of Swedish massage. Massage Metta also offers craniosacral therapy and detoxification services for general health and wellness.

Dr. Green is a board-certified dermatologist with more than 25 years of experience, taking care to personally provide all of the laser and injectable services at Cosmetic & Laser Center of Annapolis and Dr. Green, M.D. Today he fills his center with cutting-edge technology and skin care—perhaps most evident in his chemical peels. Combining aesthetic go-tos such as glycolic and alpha-hydroxyl acids with patented Melaplex and GLX technology, he creates custom elixirs that fight fine lines, brighten complexions, and rejuvenate smiles.
Dr. Green's treatments don't end with chemicals though. With his Starlux 1540 Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment, Lightsheer Laser Hair Removal and Nd:YAG laser systems he harnesses light to reduce the appearance of acne scars, remove unsightly stubble, and erase unwanted tattoos. IPL photorejuvenation and Thermage CPT Skin Firming & Tightening Treatment treatments take a slightly different approach, yet still manage to improve skin tone by stimulating collagen production in the dermal layers.
