Dr. Ibrahim Haro, DPM, a podiatrist since 1998, has seen it all when it comes to the foot and ankle. Although he excels in treating complications associated with diabetes, Dr. Haro specializes in ameliorating heel pain and toes fungus. During laser fungus-removal treatments, he infuses the toenail with light energy and dissolves the fungus and lint particles that reside beneath it. Dr. Haro practices at two locations: one in Jersey City and the other in Clifton.
With a staff that includes chiropractors, physical therapists and massage therapists, a neurologist, a pain-management specialist, and an acupuncturist, Advanced Rehabilitation of Jersey City has health bases covered. This team works together to restore clients to good health by pulling from a diverse list of services. Whether visitors are recovering from an automotive accident or seeking relief from the carpal tunnel brought on by repeatedly typing “carpal tunnel,” the clinic’s experts can develop a plan for relief.
ImPower Pilates combines traditional Pilates, the endurance- and repetition-based core-building exercise pioneered by Joseph Pilates, with tailored training equipment capable of increasing strength, flexibility, and balance. During tower classes, which are limited to four students with one Pilates-certified instructor, students boldly strap in and stretch out over their powerful resistance-riddled frenemies with the “Wall Unit.” With each spring-loaded strain-seducing repetition, instructors and their followers alike work rarely used muscles, pushing the limits of their perseverance, and upping the chances of nabbing sidewalk change without breaking stride. Those who take the tower class should have Pilates-mat or Pilates-equipment training experience.
When Dr. Ritu Saini took the reins of NY Medical Skin Solutions from her mentor?Dr. Perry Robins?she never doubted the decision to remain true to the center?s original vision. The board-certified dermatologist and her team value the health of their patients? skin above all else. As a result, they take care to educate every visitor as they scan for signs of skin cancer, remove worrisome lesions using the innovative MOHs micrographic surgical procedure, and even treat conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Dr. Saini also incorporated a medispa, and our spa special, Triple Radiance Facials.
For a well-rounded approach to patients? well-being, Dr. Saini and her assistants also perform a number of cosmetic procedures, which incorporate cutting-edge dermatological technology. A Q-switched ruby cosmetic laser system helps erase everything from pigmented lesions to unwanted tattoos. Omnilux blue and red light therapy treats acne scars. The Vbeam Perfecta laser conceals broken blood vessels, port wine stains, and other vascular conditions. And A CoolGlide Vantage Nd:YAG laser system zaps the follicles of unwanted stubble across the torso, limbs, and face. For a thoroughly rejuvenating treatment, the center also uses Ultherapy technology, triggering collagen production with precisely directed ultrasound waves. When combined with medical screenings, these sorts of cosmetic procedures can imbue patients with a renewed sense of confidence in their appearance as well as their health.
There are six essential ingredients that compose each of Complete Body's fitness programs: strength, cardio, flexibility, meditation, nutrition, and rest. Founder Alex Reznik is the mind behind this philosophy. In 1995, he founded the company believing that, if given the opportunity, most people would seek to better their health. Soon thereafter, he was proven right by both rising membership numbers and favorable media attention, including articles in Time Out New York and the New York Times.
Complete Body has now expanded to three locations. At each club, experts adhere to Mr. Reznik's principles, blending Eastern and Western techniques during classes such as yoga, boot camps, and kickboxing. Complete Body also hosts cross-training classes, which are designed to burn fat, build strength, and improve flexibility by focusing on six elements: strength, cardio, flexibility, meditation, nutrition, and rest. Among the state-of-the-art equipment and fitness technologies that help members reach their fitness goals, independent trainers utilize the facility with their clients. At onsite spas, massage therapists work tense muscles and aestheticians refresh skin with facials. Physical therapists can help to rehabilitate clients following injuries, calling upon various training methods in their arsenal.
In a testimonial on the Giving Nature Center website, Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, says her nutritional therapist, Sheryl Moller, "got me to a place of perfect health." She goes on to say that "this woman is really, really good at her job." But Gilbert's not the only person lauding the center's practitioners: Time Out New York is just one publication that has pages that have been painted with praise for the center's philosophy, which emphasizes a holistic approach to wellness that integrates mind, body, and spirit. This philosophy explains why the practice designs its acupuncture, herbal therapy, and chiropractic care to complement traditional medicine, just as giant cowboy hats complement outfits that are lacking giant cowboy hats. A realistic, life-sized painting of a birch tree stripes one wall of the office, which is decorated to evoke an airy sense of tranquility; coral-hued canvases hang from the other white brick walls. Eastern statuettes and plants also dot the space, where visitors can purchase detoxifying supplements and beaded jewelry.
