Helmed by owner and president Dr. Ann Doggett, the dedicated doctors at Wholebody Solutions aim to encourage natural health in their clients. During a 60-minute therapeutic Swedish massage, an experienced therapist use natural oils and long, soothing strokes to knead away muscular farmer’s loops and slipknots. After this gentle procedure, bodies shed the burden of aches and pains caused by giving gorilla piggyback rides. Guests who would rather renovate their frontispieces can treat themselves to one of four organic facials employing the all-natural powers of Naturopathica, Dr. Ann’s preferred skincare line. The licorice-laden Sun Repair facial reverses the lingering effects of solar kisses, while the Acne Treatment soothes excitable complexions in teens and adults. The customized moisture drench utilizes rich replenishing creams and antioxidant-loaded black currant oil to boost skin’s natural radiance. Like the bottled tears of Father Time, the Pure Results facial utilizes sweet cherry, pear fig, or pumpkin enzyme peels to reverse the effects of an aging façade.

The Boston Bodyworker has been treating pain and injuries in the Copley Square area for 15 years. Though the clinic's interior decor is warm and inviting, clients won’t find a robe or slippers waiting for them like at other massage centers. What they will find are exceptional clinical massages—ones that have caught the attention of CBS and the Improper Bostonian, who gave the center its Best Massage 2011 award. The massages are so effective because each of the more than a dozen therapists has passed an in-house training program and is required to stay up-to-date on current research.
Along with being members of the American Massage Therapy Association and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Drew and his team also volunteer their time and skills to such events and charities as the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s marathon. The Boston Bodyworker is a proud sponsor of the One Run for Boston, a 501c3 charity that raises money for the victims of the marathon bombings. In 2013, it helped raise over $91,000.00 for the One Fund.
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.
