The Boston Bodyworker has been treating pain and injuries in the Copley Square area for 15 years. Though the clinic's interior decor is warm and inviting, clients won?t find a robe or slippers waiting for them like at other massage centers. What they will find are exceptional clinical massages?ones that have caught the attention of CBS and the Improper Bostonian, who gave the center its Best Massage 2011 award. The massages are so effective because each of the more than a dozen therapists has passed an in-house training program and is required to stay up-to-date on current research.
Along with being members of the American Massage Therapy Association and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Drew and his team also volunteer their time and skills to such events and charities as the Multiple Sclerosis Society?s marathon. The Boston Bodyworker is a proud sponsor of the One Run for Boston, a 501c3 charity that raises money for the victims of the marathon bombings. In 2013, it helped raise over $91,000.00 for the One Fund.
After years of working as physical therapists in the Boston area, Joint Ventures co-owners Dan Brownridge and Dave Larson noticed one major aspect missing from in most clinics?a personal relationship between the healer and patient. The duo created Joint Ventures in an effort to bring those strong relationships to their community through advanced integrated healthcare clinics where each patient gets optimal one-on-one time with their physical therapists. At all seven locations, Dan and Dave?s more than 55 practitioners craft detailed treatment plans using the facility's four-lane pools and cardio and weight machines, including therapies ranging from acupuncture to massage, yoga, or personal training. Throughout each patient?s therapy, the team of practitioners keeps their interpersonal skills on point with regular meaningful patient-therapist conversations that end with the pair weaving BFF bracelets from each others? hair.

After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn?t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.
Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition?s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.
In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10?14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5?21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert.

Originally started in 1998 as The AIDS Care Project, a nonprofit organization that still provides free acupuncture to patients with HIV/AIDS, Pathway to Wellness expanded in 2000 to a full service clinic offering treatments besides acupuncture. Though the treatments at Pathways to Wellness cost money, they’re available to everyone and not limited to acupuncture. The center’s experienced staff, which includes 12 licensed acupuncturists, a bodywork practitioner, and a mother that kisses boo-boos, shepherds visitors toward good health with traditional acupuncture, Chinese herb therapy, and Shiatsu bodywork. Nurturing the mind as well as the body, Pathways’ third-floor office houses educational resources and materials that cover an array of topics, such as holistic therapies, public health, and HIV/AIDS. The staff also regularly conducts research, including a clinical trial on acupuncture’s effects on women who have HIV/AIDS.
