After a year of living in the corporate-communications world, Sabita knew she needed to change paths. Like a baseball player who runs to first every time he swings, she felt herself becoming too aggressive. In order to reconnect with her inner empathy and sense of place in the world, she decided to commit herself to taking care of others. With that desire in mind, she became a massage therapist and holistic-health counselor and opened the Sabita Holistic Center in 2003 to surround herself with like-minded professionals.
Celebrating their 10th year of business, Sabita and her staff heal guests of all ages and needs with holistic techniques, such as guided meditation, massages specifically tailored to elderly guests, and self-esteem workshops. In addition to leading the classes and workshops, doctors meet with guests to prescribe holistic treatment plans that incorporate Western and Eastern methods. The center even purveys its own beverage: Sabita Tea. It's a kosher-certified organic line that comes in varieties such as peppermint white tea, nutmeg white, and anise—which comes from the eponymous seed-producing plant.
Knowledge and techniques from medical traditions ranging from east to west—including Ayurvedic, traditional Chinese, modern, and naturopathic medicine—come together at Integrated Health Center. Dr. K. Pramila Vishvanath, N.D., active in her communities both stateside and overseas, directs the center. Dr. Pram and her staff target the entire body as opposed to individual symptoms, embracing naturopathic medicine to address conditions such as chronic pain, weight loss, and allergies. Integrated Health Center combines analysis with uniquely tailored solutions for each patient, and the staff conducts healing sessions via Skype if a patient's car catches a case of agoraphobia.

Licensed massage therapist Bianca Berrios, also the owner and founder of Resurrect with Massage, personalizes each of her treatments by combining modalities that include shiatsu, deep-tissue, Swedish, myofascial-release, and Thai treatments.

In the 30 years since receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1984, Dr. Tobet has spent 28 of those years in private practice in Fairfield, CT and worked before this in Israel where he treated dignitaries and ballet dancers.
