Going beyond the pure pursuit of relaxation, the practitioners at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. work closely with doctors, chiropractors, and hospitals to help ensure a more well-rounded result. To accommodate a variety of clients, the staff has outfitted each massage room with cushy tables perched hydraulic lifts. The highly accessible tables make it easy for patients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility to enjoy a seamless transition from the outside world to the indoor relaxation station. For additional comfort, the beds also feature heaters that allow patients to fully unwind and soften any butter packets that may have been pocketed during last night’s dinner date.

A board-certified surgeon and podiatrist, Dr. Schaengold helms Plateau Foot & Ankle Clinic, where he diagnoses and treats a host of conditions plaguing the lower extremities. Every appointment begins with a thorough inventory of the patient’s history, followed by a comprehensive consultation. This not only allows Dr. Schaengold to prescribe the best treatment, but also to ensure his patients are well informed about their condition, treatment options, and the difference between toes and fingers.
Once a course of action is agreed upon, the doctor can begin treatment, be it laser surgery for warts, a nonsurgical shockwave therapy treatment for plantar fasciitis, or gait analysis and correction to alleviate lower-back, hip, and knee pain.
