Seaport Chiropractic tackles typical ailments and aches with atypical treatments. For one, the center uses lasers to reverse allergies by rewiring the nervous system to identify common irritants as harmless. As for bodily aches, chiropractors use their hands to realign the spine, which soothes migraines, pain in the lower back and neck, and high blood pressure caused by a spine stressed out by its own crookedness.
Dr. Devorah Feinbloom combines chiropractic techniques, kinesiology, and nutritional know-how with such expertise that Self magazine readers were inspired to vote her the Best Female Chiropractor in Boston. She brings her celebrated care to the confines of her airy, cheery practice, drawing on a variety of services to restore the innate healing knowledge that bodies naturally possess. A warming session in the infrared sauna cues inner systems to banish fatty tissue and toxins, and classic chiropractic adjustments realign wayward vertebrae. Classes and nutritional services supporting mental and physical health round out the menu. No matter what the anatomical need, Dr. Feinbloom’s objective is to bring systems into balance so they can function optimally without drugs, surgery, or lengthy how-to manuals.
After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn’t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.
Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition’s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.
In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10–14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5–21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert and an encouraging online community.
B&S Fitness Program is composed of four different fitness-related branches, all of which are overseen by cofounders Brandi and Steven Dion. At North Shore Boot Camp Company, Brandi and Steven, along with their staff, lead indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes at locations across Massachusetts. On the track, they coordinate marathons and triathlons throughout the year for B&S Event Management, and hit the races themselves as part of a running team called SpiderOne Racing. Since every team needs a home base, the duo also operates B&S Sport Science, a 10,700-square-foot facility devoted to research- and technology-based services such as ACL rehab and personal training.
Inside a brick-face storefront in historic Salem, Dr. Han protects the teeth of kids and adults with preventive and cosmetic dental services. The dedicated staff performs all manner of oral upkeep, zapping stains through speedy Zoom whitening sessions or crafting custom fillings, implants, and bridgework. The team also expedites emergency-care services and collaborates to tackle complex dental-related issues such as sleep apnea and TMJ. Adhering to strict sterilization and infectious control guidelines, the center safeguards its patients from dangerous bacteria that can cause illnesses or grab the steering wheel while someone else is driving.
Bridge of Light Reiki helps clear the blockages in energy that can leave the body prone to negativity, sluggishness, and disease. Certified practitioner Amanda Glenn spends time with each student, ascertaining their symptoms before gently placing her hands on or near the body. Sessions help streamline the flow of energy through the body, and patients typically experience a feeling of gentle warmth and a state of deep relaxation during sessions.
The body can be affected by its environment, and when surrounded by other people who are in an extremely relaxed state, a person’s body begins to relax as well. It is this principle on which the shared treatment room at North Shore Community Acupuncture operates. Acupuncture patients lay back fully clothed on zero-gravity recliners as the needles do their work. Balance plays a large role in the acupuncture practice of head acupuncturist Stephanie Kula and her board-certified staff, who treat patients according to the theory of five-element acupuncture. This theory is based in the fundamental elements of nature—wood, fire, earth, metal, and water—which, when out of balance, can cause sickness and a shift in over overall well-being.
