At Northampton Naturopathic Associates, the on-staff naturopathic doctors address imbalances of the body and mind with a full roster of holistic treatments and therapies. After assessing an individual's medical history, lifestyle, and average weekly Play-Doh consumption, they are able to recommend a custom regimen of treatments such as homeopathy, diet and nutritional supplements, and detox services. If clients are simply in search of relaxation, they can book 30-minute sessions on the clinic's hydro-massage bed, which kneads muscles with focused jets of water, and beauty seekers can opt for a course of Endermologie treatments, which take aim at cellulite deposits.
Below the red-and-blue logo of Holistic Retreat & Institute floats the phrase, "Learn, heal, grow," underscoring the center's commitment to making health and education accessible to all. Founder Dr. Alya Shabunin provides a diverse range of holistic and educational services to help her patients make lifestyle changes that can bring about overall wellness. She leads cancer-prevention educational programs, heads up holistic retreats, and guides patients through whole-body detoxification, which can induce weight loss more easily than removing several teeth. She also holds free weekly seminars to raise awareness about disease prevention, proper nutrition, and stress reduction.
At Sustainable Health & Wellness, naturopathic physician and massage therapist Dr. Dana Lapointe leads a team of wellness professionals whose expertise ranges from weight loss and acupuncture, to organic facials and energy healing. In addition to yoga, Pilates, and meditation, clients can unwind in an infrared sauna, which raises body temperature to detoxify organs, slenderize the body, and reduce muscle or joint pain.
Losing unwanted pounds requires an approach that combines short-term and long-term regimens to generate real change over time. At Massachusetts Medical Weight Loss Centers, such multifaceted treatment plans are used to help individuals achieve the body image they desire. The centers' medical director, Dr. Joseph Palma, oversees a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical assistants, and registered dietitians. Their nutritional counseling and lifestyle guidance help patients make changes in their everyday lives that can help them shed unwanted weight. Support is also offered in the form of metabolism-boosting injections, appetite suppressants, and noninvasive Lipo-Light body contouring, which uses light energy to trigger adipose tissues into releasing their fatty-acid contents. When coupled with regular exercise and a healthy diet, these body-contouring treatments can help shrink stubborn fat deposits on patients' limbs, torsos, and vestigial tails.
People don’t go to a deli to fight wrinkles, fine lines, and acne outbreaks. But at Youthful Trends, skincare apothecaries mix custom, natural, handmade body butters and beauty products behind a beauty deli. It's this smorgasbord of organic serums and creams that lays claim to the Earthworm Wrinkle Butter, which was praised on The Doctors for its anti-aging blend of green-tea extracts and secrets for fighting off early birds. In addition to tailored blends of fresh fruit and botanicals, aestheticians encourage glowing complexions with LED light, bronze bodies in beds equipped with personal sound systems, and lift moods with vitamin D-enriched lights.
The warmly lit Whitinsville Wellness Center & Spa combines the comforts of complimentary herbal teas with the conscience-clearing joys of eco-friendly products.

The center even promotes holistic wellness by offering yoga classes in an onsite studio filled with natural, free-trade oxygen.
