Following the lead of licensed acupuncturists Drs. David and Aimee Slossberg, the staff at Advanced Healthcare eschew symptom-based treatments in favor of a preventive approach that promotes holistic wellness. After greeting each patient with an initial consultation, the chiropractic doctors draw on their comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy to pinpoint issues that arise from playing sports too aggressively or commuting to work via pole vault. They select from a repertoire of techniques headlined by torque release, an innovative treatment that employs gentle adjustments to stabilize the nervous system?s tone. To supplement these chiropractic treatments, the team cares for bodies with multiple massage modalities and detox programs designed to stimulate weight loss and improve general health.
A blue-tiled fountain flanked by palm trees gurgles outside of the Oh Baby Ultrasound studio. Inside, technicians capture video and three-dimensional portraits of baking buns. Mom reclines on the bed in the middle of the ultrasound suite, where up to a dozen family members and friends can gather on leather sofas to watch the baby reenact scenes from kung fu movies on a 55-inch flat-screen. With Sonostream, loved ones back at home can log on with a password to watch the ultrasound session as it happens. Parents can take home CDs, DVDs, and photos of the session to cherish.
In their 6,000-square-foot gym, the certified coaches at The CrossFit Squad lead classes through a series of daily workouts designed to work all muscle groups in a single session.

To accommodate their members, the gym is equipped with showers, as well as a kids’ room so parents can bring their little ones with them.
