Drawing on her education from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Esmeralda Merveille has engineered a specialized health program centered around three tenants: bio-individuality, primary food, and integrative nutrition. Generally speaking, the approach is to look at how each client's lifestyle affects his or her overall health, instead of dwelling on calories and carbs. Perhaps clients are sleeping too little, stress eating, or wearing cookie dough as a hat. By assessing these bad habits, Esmeralda can help them reduce food cravings and maximize energy.
Prana Brooklyn Wellness detoxes the body with colon-hydrotherapy treatments that help to rid its innards of harmful residue from air pollution and overconsumption of processed foods.

Keep your body's newly cleansed engines running smoothly with a 30-minute nutritional-counseling session that will help you channel your deep-fried donut salad cravings into a healthful desire for fresh, toxin-free fare.

Though laughter may be the best medicine, it can also be a source of facial folds and wrinkles over time. At Midtown Neurology and Aesthetics, board-certified physician Dr. Alina Rabinovich combats the aging effects of giggles by administering Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin injections in procedures that last only a few minutes. She uses dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse to correct medium to deep facial lines, fine lines and wrinkles, sculpting the cheeks and other facial features. In addition to rejuvenating clients aesthetically, Dr. Rabinovich also uses injection therapy to offset the effects of neurological ailments such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, and migraines.
Diane Paxton of Inner Fire Integrative Health Services brings 23 years of experience to her detox programs, Chinese therapies, and colonic-irrigation treatments.

At Global Podiatry, Dr. Losyev and his staff treat issues ranging from sprained ankles to fungal growth with a range of services. The PinPointe laser system uses beams of light to eradicate fungi, bacteria, and stains from toenails and nail beds. MicroVas therapy accelerates the body's natural healing processes, soothing injuries as well as lasting conditions such as tendonitis. Treatments for bunions, athlete's foot, and ingrown toenails restore extremities to mint condition before they are immortalized by stints as foot models or an inability to read “wet cement” signs.
Board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Joseph Racanelli smoothens wrinkled faces with nonsurgical Botox treatments. Delivered by injection, the FDA-approved medicine curbs the nerve impulses responsible for the creation of frown lines and crow’s feet upon the face.

Treatment takes approximately 30–60 minutes, and results can last up to four months or until the Greek goddess Hebe stops playing video games and gets back to business.
