At Whole Person Health, the staff has been using healing techniques to help patients overcome aches and ailments for over 25 years in Boston's South Shore. In lieu of drugs or surgery, they rely on the body's innate healing abilities, prescribing Chinese herbal medicines, performing acupuncture, and soothing muscles with massage therapy. But the team doesn't shun modern advancements entirely—they also devise nutrition plans based on an up-to-date understanding of vitamins and how to teleport them into the stomach.

The Brockton location even features a chair lift, which assists people with mobility issues.
Helmed by owner and president Dr. Ann Doggett, the dedicated doctors at Wholebody Solutions aim to encourage natural health in their clients. During a 60-minute therapeutic Swedish massage, an experienced therapist use natural oils and long, soothing strokes to knead away muscular farmer’s loops and slipknots. After this gentle procedure, bodies shed the burden of aches and pains caused by giving gorilla piggyback rides. Guests who would rather renovate their frontispieces can treat themselves to one of four organic facials employing the all-natural powers of Naturopathica, Dr. Ann’s preferred skincare line. The licorice-laden Sun Repair facial reverses the lingering effects of solar kisses, while the Acne Treatment soothes excitable complexions in teens and adults. The customized moisture drench utilizes rich replenishing creams and antioxidant-loaded black currant oil to boost skin’s natural radiance. Like the bottled tears of Father Time, the Pure Results facial utilizes sweet cherry, pear fig, or pumpkin enzyme peels to reverse the effects of an aging façade.
