Massage Therapy's licensed therapist, Michael Manning, convinces snarled muscles to let loose under the supervision of his dexterous digits, which are fluent in three main modalities. The slow strokes of Swedish massage soothe muscles into a state of relaxation normally experienced only by cooked pasta. Limbs that have been injured or overworked during athletic encounters unclench with sports massages, and therapeutic sessions return mobility to stiff appendages without surgically implanting extra elbows.
Dr. Roger Bassin doesn't tell new patients why he should be their cosmetic surgeon. Instead, he puts them in contact with past patients to help them learn about the experience and life-changing results from people who have been through it themselves.
At Dr. Bassin's side is a supporting staff that performs aesthetic and cosmetic nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and vein removal. Meanwhile, the center's aesthetician Marsha Ostrander reenlivens faces with 15 years' experience performing facials, masks, waxing, and more, and a kissing booth manned by an electric eel.
Jim Pruchniewski peered down his leg at his blackened toes. He'd been rushed to the hospital after a blizzard waylaid him on a mountainside in Lake Placid. "You have third-degree frostbite," the doctor confirmed. "We'll have to amputate." Fortunately for Jim and his digits, the US Olympic ski team was training nearby. The team's podiatrist hurried to the hospital like a long-lost lover hurries to interrupt a wedding before the end of a movie. "Stop!" he might have shouted as the buzz saw probably descended toward the patient's toes. The hero, our Olympic podiatrist, examined the foot and concluded that the damage was superficial. The toes would recover. And they did. The episode moved Jim Pruchniewski, a former biology teacher, to earn his medical degree. Over the last 20 years, he's gained fourfold board certification in podiatric orthopedics, surgery, primary care, and the treatment of diabetic foot wounds. At North Lakeland Foot Clinic, he examines feet with the same attention that saved his toes decades ago. He and his staff do everything in their power to keep feet healthy and, in the case of diabetic patients, avert extreme measures like amputation.

As an expert in weight management, Dr. Robert L. Bartemus preaches a message of low-fat diets paired with an active lifestyle.
