Under the guidance of founder Rolando Massé, Massé Neuromuscular Therapy’s team of multilingual therapists help their patients conquer stress and pain with a range of massage techniques. The crux of their repertoire is neuromuscular therapy, which alleviates pain with gentle manipulation of muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues across the body. Other treatments include reflexology, myofascial-release therapy, and deep-tissue massage.
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.
At Riverside Chiropractic Center, Dr. Reza Pourshadi treats his patients with a holistic approach. Rather than simply soothing symptoms as they appear, the doctor ensures the body is in a constant state of wellness. Through spinal adjustments, posture screenings, and nutritional and exercise counseling, Dr. Pourshadi can help patients adhere to sustainable, long-lasting healthy practices. The center also offers massages, cold laser, and ultrasound therapies to assuage lingering chronic pain in joints and muscles.
A US Marine veteran, Dr. Ilan Amar traded in the blue uniform for a white lab coat to helm A Touch of Health Chiropractic Wellness Center. Today, the doctor calls on a healthy balance of Eastern and Western treatment techniques to helps clients of all ages overcome chronic and injury-related pain. This blend of approaches allows his treatments to be supremely personalized. Neck and back pain might be corrected with a gentle adjustment, while slipped discs and pinched nerves call for a session or two on the spinal-decompression table. Other issues may require alternative techniques such as Reiki therapy and chakra work, which focus on balancing the body’s internal energies to promote self-healing. Dr. Amar couples these treatments with nutritional guidance and advice for improving each patient's overall lifestyle, such as adding exercise to their daily routine or switching out their vampire coffin for a standard mattress.
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.
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.
