At The Rothfeld Center for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Glenn S. Rothfeld, MD, leads a team of doctors, nurse practitioners, and acupuncturists, drawing upon his nearly 35 years of experience as a doctor and acupuncturist. Dr. Rothfeld and his team work to not only diagnose symptoms, but to identify underlying causes, providing clients with more complete and effective treatment. Together he and his team provide medical acupuncture treatments, IV nutrient infusion therapy, allergy testing and treatment services, and weight loss therapy.
Jazmine C. Fox-Stern's academic pursuits included neurology, physiology, anatomy, and philosophy. And though she earned her psychology degree in 2002, it was in structural integration that she found a conduit in which she could combine those fields?along with her passion for healing?into a single dynamic practice that fosters physical and emotional wellness. So Jazmine moved to Boulder, CO, became certified in structural integration, and opened Boston Body Balance.
The treatment views the body in terms of relationships?up and down, in and out, front and back?and aims to balance the body through slow, deep pressure and guided movements, like a circus clown balances his checkbook. The goal is "functional mobility." This means that Jazmine helps her clients not just align their bodies, but develop new habits and patterns of movement. So in addition to relieving pain, structural integration can improve coordination and flexibilty. And because it frees restrictions in the fascial network, it can lead to feelings of liberation from the body's old habits, giving clients a renewed sense of balance and an emotional boost.
Before joining forces to fight spider and varicose veins, the board-certified radiologists at North Bridge Vein Care all honed their skills at Harvard teaching hospitals. This training, along with other professional endeavors, familiarized them with medical intricacies such as interpreting ultrasound images, determining if blood is flowing through the body in a healthy manner, and assessing whether vessels are robust. Now, they use this know-how to treat compromised veins—which are often unsightly and painful—with methods such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatments, and ambulatory phlebectomy.
For the therapists at Sea Spa, massages aren’t simply a way to pamper oneself for an hour; they are tools that improve the function of the body. They evidence this belief within the earth-toned spa’s soothing environs, complete with hardwood floors, padded massage tables, and plush reflexology chairs. Here, the Swedish and deep-tissue strokes of their relaxing and rejuvenating spa massages are supplemented with natural ingredients. Mineral mud exfoliates during deep-cleansing massages, and sea salt works to clear the skin of toxins, impurities, and tattoos of full recycle bins. Steam loaded with herbs used in chinese and tibetan medicine seeps into the skin during footbaths that aim to detox from the inside, a process that can strengthen immune systems and increase energy.
At Winchester Wellness Centre, two aestheticians and a massage therapist tend not only to the skin's surface but also to the hard-working muscles beneath it. To beautify complexions, aestheticians employ treatments that range from the pore cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturizing of traditional facials to fine-crystal microdermabrasion and oxygen infusions. Meanwhile, the center's massage therapist alleviates aches with reflexology techniques focused on the hands and feet, or she uses Thai massage to stretch muscles, which enhances flexibility more comfortably than sleeping in a pretzel-shaped bed.
The acupuncturists at Acupuncture Together holistically combat a wide range of ailments by leveraging their Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degrees. Whether they're treating migraines, depression, or insomnia, the acupuncturists lead clients to the central treatment room, where comfortable, reclining lounge chairs await. Once everyone is comfortable, the acupuncturists carefully place therapeutic needles on the client's legs, arms, forehead, and scalp, targeting areas dictated by the client's current health or interest in the Orion constellation.
