The practitioners at Artists in Motion Massage Therapy see massage as more than a means of relaxation—they see it as a physical medicine that can help people heal and overcome chronic pain. Using Swedish massage as their baseline approach, they customize treatments by drawing upon tools from hot bamboo to infrared-sauna therapy, which eases conditions such as arthritis, adhesions, and being encased in ice by heating the body internally. For clients who would benefit from more in-depth structural alignment, therapists can refer them to Artists in Motion's resident neuromuscular chiropractic physician. Through this meticulous attention to each patient's ailments, therapists uphold the standards of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals.

Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.

Oxygen-enhanced workouts and whole-body-vibration sessions can obliterate calories and boost circulation, and seminars and one-on-one sessions with health professionals teach clients how to set their hormones into fat-burning mode. Ionic foot treatments pull out potentially harmful toxins, and supplements nourish the body's vital systems with healthful nutrients.
