The licensed therapists at Somatic Massage Therapy, P.C. dedicate themselves to helping to relieve a range of muscular ailments, including stored tension, chronic pain, and aching joints accrued from excessive slam-dancing at retirement parties. One-hour sessions include such modalities as Swedish and hot stone, which relax back muscles while increasing circulation. Specialized treatments target problem areas and include trigger-point therapy, during which knots of tension in muscles are located and unraveled with the determination of a string-hungry housecat.
Dr. Steven S. Turner and his business, like many others, were caught in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. After surveying the damage, Dr. Turner decided to build a brand-new, state-of-the art office. There, he and his staff dedicate every day to improving patient's teeth with preventative, corrective, and cosmetic dentistry. Given the fact that having a great smile requires more than a good set of chompers, Dr. Turner also uses his extensive training and knowledge of facial anatomy to skillfully administer Botox and other cosmetic fillers.

According to Vein Medic, an estimated one in four people suffer from some form of leg-vein disorder during their lives. These varicose and spider veins can be painful, and even if they aren't, they can make people feel uncomfortable with their appearance. So Vein Medic's physicians, including board-certified Dr. Michael Kassouf, who has been eradicating unwanted veins for more than 25 years, fight them with a variety of treatments.
Two of the most popular treatments include sclerotherapy and endovenus laser therapy. During sclerotherapy treatments, doctors inject the unwanted veins with an FDA-approved sclerosing solution, which causes the veins to collapse, die, and eventually fade from view. Endovenus laser treatments also collapse veins, though they require a laser fiber to be inserted into the vein. Both minimally invasive treatments can help patients feel more confident walking around in public in shorts, dresses, and figure-skating costumes in a few weeks.
