Versed in a number of massage styles, licensed massage practitioner and Essential Body Wellness owner Leah Wendel-Tarabochia carefully tailors each treatment to ensure her clients receive the most relaxing and revitalizing massage possible. Upon entering her tranquil studio, guests can decompress in a designated quiet room before they’re led to treatment rooms outfitted with heated massage tables dressed in ultra-soft sheets. There, they’re lulled into deep relaxation as Leah goes to work promoting better circulation with gliding Swedish massage strokes or using water-treated hot stones to melt tension and keep clients from accidentally giving friends the cold shoulder. Beyond general relaxation and minor pain relief, Leah also treats sports- and work-related injuries, as well as neuromuscular and musculoskeletal dysfunctions, with her rehabilitation services.
The licensed and certified technicians at American Image wage a battle against baldness in men and women alike with a quartet of nonsurgical solutions. Grafts take human hair and temporarily adhere it to the scalp for a mane that looks and feels as natural as Mother Nature’s beauty. Ultratress extensions add length and volume to sparse pates, and laser hair therapy (LHT) promotes blood flow to the scalp and slows hair loss in many. For some, the experts here recommend topical or oral remedies, such as Rogaine, Propecia, or angel hair pasta supplements to treat weakened strands.
Serge and Ilona Barlam, graduates of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, run Advanced Foot and Ankle Clinics, a full-service center with sophisticated diagnostics, diabetic care, and laser-therapy services. Their treatments emphasize preventive care, with routine care available for those without troubling injuries and physical therapy or surgery available for those who need major changes. Laser therapy relies on GenesisPro by Cutera, Q-Clear, or CoolTouch lasers to diminish the appearance of onychomycosis, a fungus that makes the toenails yellow, thicken, and unable to show off engagement toe rings.
The physicians at Via Vascular know their veins. Not only are they all board-certified in diagnostic radiology, but they also boast certification in specialties including neuroradiology and vascular and interventional radiology. Simply put, they have expertise, and they apply it to minimally invasive varicose- and spider-vein treatments.
The doctors remove vessels with a surgical technique known as microphlebectomy or via endovenous laser treatments, which alleviate symptoms with a small laser fiber. During innovative thermocoagulation procedures, an insulated probe banishes blood vessels with a microburst of energy and a royal decree. The doctors also diminish spider veins with sclerotherapy sessions, which use a special medicine that causes vessels to close.
Dr. Mary Beliy’s approach to wellness includes detoxification and craniosacral bodywork.

Some of the services they offer include: detoxification, healthy lifestyle, craniosacral therapy, colon hydrotherapy, B12 injections, and nutrition response testing.
