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.

Holding an esteemed certification from the Academy Counsel on Chiropractic Pediatrics, Dr. Fried applies her vertebral wisdom to mend misalignments and assuage aches in infants, mothers-to-be, and ailing adults alike. After an in-depth review of their health history and a discussion of their unique health concerns, new patients receive a hands-on physical exam that ferrets out hidden tensions, problem spots, and secret passageways once utilized by the body's butler. Dr. Fried also uses her advanced Insight Subluxation station to examine your nervous system, testing its functionality and interaction with the rest of the bone bag, before analyzing the results and presenting them in a State of the Body address at a follow-up appointment.

Jacob Wenger understands the power of balance. Over the past decade, he's tempered his time on the East Coast with study on the West Coast; he's offset his upbringing in the western hemisphere with the pursuit of wisdom in the eastern hemisphere. His globetrotting worldliness—which has led him to places as diverse as Shanghai, India, San Francisco, and Michigan—is now anchored in Massachusetts, where Jacob is a licensed practitioner of Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and herbology.
Using superfine needles, he realigns energy pathways to quell maladies as diverse as insomnia, anxiety, and compulsive thinking. Jacob also applies Japanese reiki techniques that aim to reduce stress and promote healing. Under master trainer Simu Min Ou Yang, he studied Qi Gong—a choreographed blend of breathing patterns, whole-body movements, and meditation—and now he passes on this knowledge in private lessons that, like most games of tic-tac-toe, are 60-minutes long.
When Bonnie Diamond began her journey to acupuncture, she was living an unbalanced life. Her job as a computer programmer was an unhappy endeavor, and soon she was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome. Acupuncture brought her back into balance, and she was so grateful that she began studying the ancient practice.
After 10 years of intense study, she earned a master's degree and today shares her skills with her clients. During treatments, she reads the "story" of each client's body, seeking to restore balance and eliminate the need to commute via unicycle. She inserts hair-thin needles into points in the body that will help improve energy flow, which should restore health and vitality to each client.
