Diane Paxton of Inner Fire Integrative Health Services brings 23 years of experience to her detox programs, Chinese therapies, and colonic-irrigation treatments.

Dr. Victoria Karlinsky looks for ways to restore patients' self-confidence through cosmetic surgery. After training alongside expert bariatric surgeons, Dr. Karlinsky learned the art of weight-loss surgeries and lifts. Dr. Karlinsky's attention to detail extends to her face-lift, eyelid, ear, and lip surgeries, and also accounts for her winning streak in pickup games of Simon Says.

Dr. Karlinsky brandishes board certifications in both general and cosmetic surgery and can communicate to clients in English, Russian, or scalpel charades.
Health meets beauty between lime-green accent walls and birch-tree murals, where a board-certified podiatrist and staff revamp nails afflicted with diabetes or fungal issues with laser treatments, topical medications, and specialty pedicures. The medi-pedi, or medical pedicure, was designed specifically for those with periodic health issues. Still, even healthy patrons can pamper feet with the spa-like pedicures, which boast clinical extras such as debridement, antifungal nail polish, and foot soaks. The multilingual staff—who can speak English, Spanish, French, and Creole—also go beyond standard spa hygiene by blasting shoes with UV rays and stern glares to prevent reinfection.

Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
At the beginning of the first session, Heidi, the professional acupuncturist at AcuBrooklyn, will perform a full consultation to determine the best course of action and which bodily areas to target.
