Medford Muscular Therapy Centre has been restoring function and peace to overworked muscles since it opened in 1994. That healing tradition continues today, as four nationally certified therapists employ multiple techniques to keep patrons' tension at bay. Deep-tissue massages strategically knead sore spots, and specially designed prenatal and infant massages soothe new mothers and children who just emerged from their cocoons. Reiki, acupuncture, and energy work blend holistic healing techniques with more traditional massage treatments.
The team of licensed acupuncturists at Open Space Community Acupuncture don't knock when they're about to enter the room. That's because there's only one treatment room here, as the center specializes in communal acupuncture. In a comforting group setting, the professionals insert sterile needles into the body in an effort to boost qi, or the body's life energy. Aside from community acupuncture being better suited for a family reunion, its main difference from private acupuncture is its accessibility. Due to Open Space's arrangement, the staff members can see more patients and charge less per visit. Case in point, their treatments are priced on a sliding scale between $20?$40.
After earning a dual bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston, Latoya Lewis graduated from the Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics and Massage Therapy. Today, she specializes in reflexology, deep-tissue, Swedish, and sports massage, in which a cushion-footed baseball mascot walks on the client's back. Latoya prides herself on her level of empathy and intuition, always making the effort to understand clients' problems and constantly tailoring her services to the individual in her care. She often incorporates elements of trigger-point therapy and reflexology, as well as stretching and breathing exercises, into her massages. Past clients have included oncology patients and senior citizens, for whom she's developed ongoing therapy plans that she hopes will translate into broader, life-related changes.

The aestheticians at Forever Young Day Spa & Laser Center seamlessly integrate medical technology into treatments that balance both skin and body. To ensure that the journey toward hair-free limbs and winkle-free brows is safe and efficient, the team relies on FDA-cleared lasers and cosmetic injections. Meanwhile, nimble hands wield hair-fine acupuncture needles, deliver flowing effleurage strokes, and place hot stones with precision to reap both physical and mental benefits. Traditional facials deploy serums rich in botanically derived antioxidants and vitamins from skincare lines such as Credentials to empty pores and rejuvenate complexions.
