The aestheticians at Forever Young Day Spa & Laser Center seamlessly integrate medical technology into treatments that balance both skin and body. To ensure that the journey toward hair-free limbs and winkle-free brows is safe and efficient, the team relies on FDA-cleared lasers and cosmetic injections. Meanwhile, nimble hands wield hair-fine acupuncture needles, deliver flowing effleurage strokes, and place hot stones with precision to reap both physical and mental benefits. Traditional facials deploy serums rich in botanically derived antioxidants and vitamins from skincare lines such as Credentials to empty pores and rejuvenate complexions. More advanced counterparts use low-level electrical and sonic frequencies to boost skin elasticity and rid the dermal surface of bacteria and pigmentation.
Medford Muscular Therapy Centre has been restoring function and peace to overworked muscles since it opened in 1994. That healing tradition continues today, as four nationally certified therapists employ multiple techniques to keep patrons' tension at bay. Deep-tissue massages strategically knead sore spots, and specially designed prenatal and infant massages soothe new mothers and children who just emerged from their cocoons. Reiki, acupuncture, and energy work blend holistic healing techniques with more traditional massage treatments.
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 five locations, Dan and Dave’s more than 35 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.
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.
