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.

The talented toothsmiths at West Somerville Dental Associates tenderly restore teeth to their natural luminescence. Opt for the in-office teeth whitening and your mandible mollusks will emerge brighter than the most intelligent walrus. Teeth are cleaned and examined prior to the in-office treatment, and custom-made take-home whitening trays provide the goods needed to maintain a pearly sheen. Alternately, the comprehensive cleaning package whisks teeth through a tingly tour of digital x-ray terrain, cleaning and polishing oral meadows with rivers of fluoride rinse. Teeth will receive an exam to assess oral health, followed by an oral exam to assess the teeth's knowledge of the underlying causes of the Bolshevik Revolution. They'll also receive a goody bag of tooth-tending treats.
Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
