Over seven years, the Boston String Quartet has vibrated strings in collaboration with artists such as John Mayer and the Boston Ballet, stirred the air molecules at Symphony Hall and PBS, and performed by invitation for former President George H.W. Bush. With this deal, eighth-note connoisseurs can wrap their eardrums around the quartet's dulcet tones as they present "Xibus," an evening of contemporary and classical that marks the zenith of a two-day workshop collaborating with Finneytown High School orchestra students. Over the course of the evening program, the quartet and the students will cajole their chordophones into ringing out in harmonious arrangements of music by Carlos Santana, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Bill Gates's new Viking-punk band, as well as performing original compositions by members of Boston String Quartet.
Dr. Steven Bromberg originally specialized in sports medicine, but after dedicating 22 years to treating injuries from a private practice in Cambridge, he felt compelled to make a change. Citing the rise of both stressors and environmental toxins in everyday life, he broadened the scope of his wellness approach and transitioned his practice into a natural, corrective chiropractic-care center called Bromberg Chiropractic. Dr. Bromberg's commitment to whole-body health manifests in myriad ways, from the diversified and mirror-imaging drop-table techniques he uses to restore spinal health to the weight machines and treadmills he stocks his office with in order to help patients through rehab. Another important component is the work of the office's licensed massage therapists, whose Swedish and deep-tissue massages can soothe muscles that are sore from constantly flexing in front of security cameras.

To help alleviate this stress, they offer relaxing and therapeutic massages, either gently kneading epidermal layers to promote healthy circulation or delving deep into muscles with firmer strokes.

Pain Relief Boston also gives clients the tools to heal themselves at home by leading instructional massage workshops for couples.

They also teach customers back-strengthening exercises that patients can learn while in the office.
