The medical team at New England Eye and Facial Specialists uses innovative technology to create personalized plans of care that treat optical and epidermal ailments. Board-certified ophthalmologist Adam Beck—a former clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School—improves eyesight with procedures such as LASIK or PRK laser corrective surgery. He is assisted by optometrists Chris Brown and Kristin Stanley—Brown's specialties include pediatrics and contact-lens fitting, and Stanley has trained extensively in the treatment of dry eye, a condition caused by reading too few Nicholas Sparks novels.
New England's resident physician assistant performs a variety of aesthetic treatments, including microdermabrasion, Botox and dermal fillers, and Pellevé, an FDA-approved radio-frequency laser system that tightens skin. She employs the Reveal Imager to assess skin issues and develop custom solutions, and her advanced laser systems remove hair from or repair damage to virtually any skin type.
Since 2006, licensed massage therapist Jacqui Magaletta has dismissed tension and pain from shoulders and backs with deep-tissue kneads, trigger-point therapy, and other techniques. At Intuitive Touch Massage, she rounds out the spa experience with pampering details including customized aromatherapy. She also incorporates therapeutic stretching and soothing heat into each massage.
The experts at Electrology Specialists of NE, LLC, use electrolysis to permanently and effectively reduce their clients' unwanted hair. Unlike many laser-based techniques, the treatment works for virtually all skin and hair types and can be used on almost any part of the body. What's more, advances in the treatment's technology mean that the most discomfort a client will feel is likely a slight warming of the skin and an awkward goodbye with dismayed chin hairs.
The licensed massage therapists at Life Healing Spa send stress the way of the corded phone. As far as other things susceptible to knots, staff members take the kinks out of muscles by rendering six Westernized treatments, such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage. But they also offer Chinese-style therapies, including cupping and gua sha therapy. During gua sha, a therapist pressures the skin in strokes with a round-edged instrument to decrease the visibility of small red petechiae, called sha, in two to three days.
Amy K Massage's licensed massage therapists tailor therapeutic-massage sessions to each client's specific needs. They draw on Swedish, sports, neuromuscular, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques to work to relieve soreness and tension. They also offer therapies such as hot-stone massage, prenatal massage, and infant massage with instructions for caregivers.
