With more than 3,000 varicose vein procedures under his belt, Dr. Jeffrey Goldblatt, a diplomat of the American Board of Surgeons, leads the staff at Shoreline Medical Spa in blotting out bodily imperfections with up-to-date technologies. Lasers play starring roles in several treatments, with the CoolLipo system breaking up and removing fat cells from necks and jowls, and elos technology precisely ousting visible veins and hair from all skin tones. The staff puts down the lasers to evict bodies of toxins with body wraps, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and soothe complaining muscles with therapeutic strokes or compassionate back pats.
While working as a sales executive for two of the top hearing-aid manufacturers, Nancy Jablonski quickly realized that the people who most needed her products were those who often found it difficult to travel to audiology centers. She established Audiology Concierge as a means to correct this problem, and today, she and her staff travel to homes to perform exams, suggest solutions, and fit custom hearing aids. For the latter, she has been able to access desirable pricing thanks to her years spent as an industry insider.
Board-certified physicians Stephen M. Rouse, M.D., F.A.C.S., Jerilyn S. Allen, M.D., and William T. Culviner, M.D., F.A.C.S. work together to perform safe, advanced cosmetic procedures at The Center for Facial Cosmetics. With years of training and experience backing them up, they guide customers through personal consultations that help them create individually tailored treatment plans. They can also prescribe skincare regimens using Obagi products that can correct unhealthy skin functions instead of simply treating ailments. In seeking out natural beauty looks, the trio performs noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and hair removal. Also available from the team are non-surgical treatments including Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane, and surgical treatments including rhinoplasty, face lifts, and neck lifts.
Lorraine Cannatta has always had a healing touch. As a child, she helped her neighbor care for stray and injured farm animals; as a teenager, she applied those same skills to assisting her baby brother, who was born with breathing problems. After studying to become a certified surgical technician, she spent 18 years as part of a surgical team. Today, Lorraine draws upon these experiences and her extensive credentials to provide holistic wellness services at Five Elements Healing Center.
Licensed massage therapists reduce client anxiety and chronic pain. Ayurvedic consultations balance mind and body using a mixture of healthy meal plans, breathing techniques, yoga postures, and herbal remedies, and yoga classes for all fitness levels emphasize gentle movements and breathing techniques. Breathing patterns also are an essential part of the center’s empty-bowl meditations, in which participants sit with their palms up and open, similar to empty bowls. For clients seeking spiritual guidance, Five Elements offers counseling and intuitive readings.
Led by Dr. Arnold Rivera and PA-C Scott Callahan, Dolce Vida Medical Spa's skilled staff performs high-tech skin and body rejuvenations alongside relaxing spa treatments. Light-based body-sculpting sessions, IPL skincare, and injectable solutions such as Dysport and Radiesse help patrons remain youthful without wearing their senior-class photo as a mask. Drawing from an apothecary of high-end skincare products from Éminence, SkinTherapeutic, and Revision Skin Care, aestheticians nurture façades with specialized masks, and massage therapists ease tension from torsos with hot stones, lava shells, frozen oven mitts, or bare hands.
A graduate of the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, Rachel Felson helms New Haven Rolfing, where she performs the specialized service in an effort to release built-up tensions and adhesions in clients of varying ages and backgrounds. During Rolfing sessions, Felson manually loosens connective tissue, or fascia, by kneading the labyrinthine network with her fingers, hands, and elbows. After roughly one hour of the holistic bodywork, visitors may notice an improvement in their health, observing higher levels of elasticity in their tissue and a greater feeling of balance on tightrope commutes to work. Among its myriad benefits, Rolfing boasts the ability to improve individuals’ posture, decrease anxiety levels, and amplify energy for long-distance pogo-stick marathons.
