Though "spa" is in their practice's name, Ariba's physicians don't merely help clients reach their cosmetic objectives; the doctors specialize in fields as varied as rehabilitation, pain management, and sports medicine. Cosmetic treatments are minimally invasive, and they're designed to erase unwanted hair and veins, resurface complexions, and usher bodies toward lower weights with the help of specially designed lasers, injectables, and serums. Staff members speak English, Spanish, and Persian, and they pride themselves on cultivating a friendly environment.
Inside this professional spa, a board-certified physician helps clients wrest youth from the subtle erosions of time with cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures. The kindly doctor chats with each client to allay any concerns and walk them through their chosen treatment. Then, single-handedly, she administers Botox and collagen injections and customizes chemical peels to shrink pores, diminish acne scaring, and even out complexions. Obagi and organic skincare products line the shelves, a refreshing change from the bowling-league plaques crowding most doctors’ offices.
With six massage rooms and a staff of certified massage therapists, Mission Massage Therapy Center can cater to every client's personal massage needs. Its expansive menu of services includes Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massages, as well as couples treatments.
ForeViva Medical Clinique's treatments are grounded in the idea that when people feel good, they look good. From long-term weight loss and hormone replacement programs to laser hair removal and beauty injections, Dr. Joelle Osias and her staff have plenty of tools to take on skin problems or unwanted weight. The doctor places special emphasis on creating a trusting, one-on-one relationship with each client, tailoring programs to their individual lifestyles and naming her staff members after them.
With its entrees named for New York City landmarks and the decorative fruit dotting its walls and tables, Big Apple Eatery embraces its name. Pizzas, such as the South Bronx taco and Wall Street White, join salads named for Central Park and Madison Square Garden, alongside Big City chili and Broadway chef salads. Beers such as Budweiser—which is what the Dutch called Battery Park—pour from taps behind the pennant-strewn bar, complementing cheese fries and crab poppers during special events such as karaoke nights and live performances from local musicians.
At Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon James Newman, MD, FACS and his fellow board-certified plastic surgeons enhance beauty within their state-of-the-art surgical suite. Dr. Newman completed his residency and a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Stanford University, where he now serves on the clinical faculty. He completed an additional fellowship with an emphasis on laser surgery after recognizing the large role lasers now play in surgical procedures. The renowned surgeon also lectures internationally and has authored more than 30 surgery-related scientific publications and a coloring book.
Dr. Newman and his staff perform a variety of medical procedures, ranging from face-lifts and Vaser ultrasonic liposuction to minimally invasive body-contouring and enhancement techniques. They can also combat signs of aging via nonsurgical means, including dermal fillers that smooth wrinkles and Vaser Shape sessions that, like a rearview mirror in place of a bathroom mirror, make bodies look smaller.
Jean Couch—author of The Runner’s Yoga Book, producer of the DVD Your Pain-Free Life, and founder of Balance Center—started her career by studying healthy populations of people throughout the world. She learned that they tended not to experience back and joint pain as pervasively as does the United States population. From her studies, Couch believes that this pain can be eased with correct posture. She and her instructors animate that research at Balance Center by leading sessions based on the movement patterns of people without back and joint pain, just as adults who want to look cool base their movements on the angsty slump of teenagers. The teachers lead introductory, ongoing, and intensive classes in posture correction for sitting and walking.
