Aftercare Injury and Wellness Center boosts overall heath with a variety of services. Fitness classes rely on yoga, Pilates, and P90X workouts to tone bodies, build stamina, and blast calories. They pair with custom nutritional-counseling sessions that teach clients which foods and supplements their bodies respond to. Corrective exercises also rely on customization to ensure that clients treat their injuries effectively.
As an LPG-certified Endermologie technician who has it out for patches of cellulite and fat, Jennifer McGilvray decided to found Perpetual Motion Body Improvement Center. She drew on her background in fitness and nutrition to inform which high-tech services would help achieve her mission. She now treats cellulite with Cynosure’s Triactive laser, fosters weight loss with Formostar’s infrared body wraps, and helps burst fat cells and swallowed balloon animals with the Lapex 2000 LipoLaser.
Seasoned dentist Dr. Steven A. Brustin and his team of mouth experts turn on smile beams with Zoom! whitening treatments. Patient spines can recline in a chair for 90 minutes while frontal fences bathe in a bleaching gel that aims to whisk away the stains acquired from sleeping face down in a blueberry pie. A specialized Zoom! light illuminates cranial caves to activate the gel, and three 15-minute gel applications bring teeth to increasing levels of brightness. Reportedly, some chompers may be sensitive to the Zoom! light, but sensitivity typically dissipates after the procedure.
In 2010, Kru Yai Mark Nardone received a blessing to open SitSuphan Muay Thai Boran Academy—the first of its kind in the world. The blessing came from Arjarn Suphan Chabairam, who lent his name to the facility after a legendary career that included more than 300 fights and championship belts at the Featherweight and Bantamweight levels.
Today, Kru Mark and his team of mized martial artists continue to carry on Suphan’s legacy at Suphan LLC, a 3,000-square training facility in Braintree. Much of their curriculum is built around Muay Thai, the ancient fighting art that originated in Thailand some 2,000 years ago. Instead of having students swing at cardboard cutouts of childhood bullies, Kru Mark and his instructors incorporate elements of shadowboxing, padwork, and heavy bag training into their classes. They also utilize their facility’s numerous training amenities, including a full-size boxing ring.

Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
