Helmed by owner and president Dr. Ann Doggett, the dedicated doctors at Wholebody Solutions aim to encourage natural health in their clients. During a 60-minute therapeutic Swedish massage, an experienced therapist use natural oils and long, soothing strokes to knead away muscular farmer’s loops and slipknots. After this gentle procedure, bodies shed the burden of aches and pains caused by giving gorilla piggyback rides. Guests who would rather renovate their frontispieces can treat themselves to one of four organic facials employing the all-natural powers of Naturopathica, Dr. Ann’s preferred skincare line. The licorice-laden Sun Repair facial reverses the lingering effects of solar kisses, while the Acne Treatment soothes excitable complexions in teens and adults. The customized moisture drench utilizes rich replenishing creams and antioxidant-loaded black currant oil to boost skin’s natural radiance. Like the bottled tears of Father Time, the Pure Results facial utilizes sweet cherry, pear fig, or pumpkin enzyme peels to reverse the effects of an aging façade.
The certified practitioners at New England Muscular Therapy master a range of therapeutic treatments to extricate clients from the burden of painful musculoskeletal conditions. Clients release sighs of relief as massage therapists release taut muscles with fingers made nimble from hours of practice and marathon rounds of cat’s cradle. Acupuncture and herbs work to restore the body’s balance, especially in tandem with the practice of tui na, a traditional Chinese form of massage focusing on balancing energy in the body. Customized treatments draw together the clinic’s disciplines to tailor a variety of therapies centered on personal wellness goals and promoting relaxation.

According to Eastern tradition, chi—the body’s internal energy—flows along a web-like network of pathways throughout the body, connecting the brain to organs and tissues and ultimately serving as a key to wellness. For thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners have treated everything from stress to infertility through these channels, redirecting energy and unblocking paths with sterile, hair-thin needles in an effort to restore balance and natural healing. At Koru Therapy, Geralyn Kruger and Elizabeth Debari continue this time-tested practice, helping alleviate injuries, high blood pressure, depression, and a slew of other conditions.
Elizabeth and Geralyn aren’t alone in their efforts, either—they’re joined by licensed massage therapists Carrie Stevens and Meg Taylor. These muscle gurus calm bodily tissues with custom massages that react and adapt to each client’s individual concerns. Specializing in pregnancy, myofascial, and Swedish modalities, among others, the duo can effectively eliminate chronic pain and tension or rehabilitate injuries obtained through sports or heated games of footsie.
After years of working as physical therapists in the Boston area, Joint Ventures co-owners Dan Brownridge and Dave Larson noticed one major aspect missing from in most clinics—a personal relationship between the healer and patient. The duo created Joint Ventures in an effort to bring those strong relationships to their community through advanced integrated healthcare clinics where each patient gets optimal one-on-one time with their physical therapists. At all seven locations, Dan and Dave’s more than 55 practitioners craft detailed treatment plans using the facility's four-lane pools and cardio and weight machines, including therapies ranging from acupuncture to massage, yoga, or personal training. Throughout each patient’s therapy, the team of practitioners keeps their interpersonal skills on point with regular meaningful patient-therapist conversations that end with the pair weaving BFF bracelets from each others’ hair.
This will go down as the worst period in the history of mankind. First, the economy tanks and forces everyone to buy less Pringles. Then, gas prices force people to walk more, causing foot and back pain. Then, as the foul icing on the crap cake, seasonal allergies get slightly worse across the globe. With the end of the world near (never doubt the Mayans), there's only one way to cope—acupuncture.
