Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
Dr. Samir Melki is a board-certified ophthalmologist who has performed thousands of corrective eye surgeries (including one on Baseball Hall of Famer Jim Rice) and authored three textbooks on the subject. Before receiving the vision-enhancing surgery, Dr. Melki will examine your eyes to determine your eligibility for the treatment. (If you are ineligible, you will receive a full refund.) There are some important things you should expect before, during, and after surgery, and the FDA recommends refraining from wearing contact lenses two weeks prior to surgery. After the surgery, you'll get all the follow-up care you need to guarantee success. Call ahead to schedule a consultation.
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.
As natural light streams through the windows, members at Fisique Fitness run on treadmills equipped with their own screens, take to Cybex elliptical machines, and make the rounds on strength-training equipment. In group exercise classes, instructors lead cardio-centric spinning workouts or model mindful breathing during Vinyasa yoga's flow of poses. Dedicated personal trainers take things up a notch, pushing their clients past a plateau or preparing them for the arm-wrestling portion of a corporate job interview. After workouts, members can hit the showers equipped with convenient toiletries or plunk down on one of the lobby’s leather armchairs.
In addition to providing chiropractic treatments and physical-therapy sessions, Fisique Fitness partners with Joint Ventures to offer a menu of spa services that includes massage and acupuncture.
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 seven locations, Dan and Dave?s more than 55 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.
