Jazmine C. Fox-Stern's academic pursuits included neurology, physiology, anatomy, and philosophy. And though she earned her psychology degree in 2002, it was in structural integration that she found a conduit in which she could combine those fields?along with her passion for healing?into a single dynamic practice that fosters physical and emotional wellness. So Jazmine moved to Boulder, CO, became certified in structural integration, and opened Boston Body Balance.
The treatment views the body in terms of relationships?up and down, in and out, front and back?and aims to balance the body through slow, deep pressure and guided movements, like a circus clown balances his checkbook. The goal is "functional mobility." This means that Jazmine helps her clients not just align their bodies, but develop new habits and patterns of movement. So in addition to relieving pain, structural integration can improve coordination and flexibilty. And because it frees restrictions in the fascial network, it can lead to feelings of liberation from the body's old habits, giving clients a renewed sense of balance and an emotional boost.
Working as a laser hair-removal specialist, Carmen Vanderheiden heard a common sentiment from the clients who had tattoos: "Please, hit it. I want it gone." The Tataway founder told the Back Bay Patch that as many as 80% of these tattooed clients asked her not to shield their ink from the hair-zapping laser. Since opening her tattoo-removal parlor, Vanderheiden has found out why, listening keenly to the story beneath each inky regret. Some clients have told her that they're tired of a tattoo's design or its placement on their body. Others have confided that the tattoo feels like a stain from some painful time in their life.
These stories make no difference to Tataway's tattoo-removal chart. During free consultations, the clinically published Kirby-Desai scale tells Vanderheiden the number of laser treatments each client can expect based on skin type, lifestyle, the tattoo's pigments, location, and number of spelling errors. After each treatment, topical ointments and sterile dressing help sooth the skin and prevent infection.

Whereas medical spas often offer tattoo-removal services on the side, Disappearing inc. sets itself apart by focusing all of its energy on ridding customers of unwanted ink. However, despite their singular goal of erasing body ink, staff members respect tattoos as an art form and a personal choice, and understand that customers have many reasons for wanting to get a tattoo removed or altered. This is why they start all jobs with a free consultation to get to know customers and customize services to their needs. Then, during a tattoo-removal session, a licensed technician uses a state-of-the-art Quanta Q-Plus C laser and Zimmer cooling machine to target the deep-seated pigment. The ink then breaks into small particles and eventually disappears through the body’s immune system. Though most customers come in with the goal of eliminating their entire tattoo, Disappearing inc. can also remove parts of tattoos such as a sloppily drawn star in a constellation or a centipede’s 101st leg.
