Touch N Heal owner Neelam Sethi moved to the United States from Mumbai, India, in order to share her knowledge of holistic therapies with a growing population of Western holistic-medicine users. The center's offerings include alternative therapies such as reflexology, acupressure, naturopathy, yoga, Ayurvedic acupressure, and su jok. During each session, practitioner Neelam pursues her personal mission of healing others with alternative, non-medicinal methods. She employs her 15 years of hands-on experience to personalize each treatment session to clients' concerns, which range from psychological stress to the chronic aches that keep them from finding comfort, even while resting on a mattress made entirely of marshmallow fluff.
Dr. Marianna M. Weiner says that patients have come to her with all sorts of problems, often at their wits' ends after visiting several other dentists. She’s fixed damaged jaws, corrected cross bites, and beautified crooked teeth.
Those clients have even included celebrity figure skaters and musicians. Dr. Weiner and her team of doctors and staff draw upon comprehensive training in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures to pinpoint areas of discomfort and maintain health. Implants, veneers, and orthodontics help to keep pearlies looking beautiful, particularly when paired with whitening products from Sapphire and Zoom! Vast expanses of marble and polished wood littered with cut flowers give one the sensation of having stepped into a fine hotel, and flat-screen TVs on the wall of the clinic provide a soothing distraction, unless all the shows are about how common paper cuts are.
Brooklyn EyeWorks Optical's team of friendly and knowledgeable experts build professional relationships with clients as they boost vision and cultivate style. After eye doctors perform eye exams, customers peruse a large selection of frames while skilled staff forge prescription lenses, such as Crizal No-Glare lenses, which repel rain, smudges, scratches, and unkind looks from strangers. Brooklyn EyeWorks Optical also offers stylish sunglasses and Transitions lenses, which protect peepers by darkening in response to bright sunlight.
A distinctive bespectacled sig signifies the turn-of-the-century brownstone that houses the practice of Dr. Stuart Friedman, a proud graduate of the New England College of Optometry who improves the ocular health of his community from a neighborhood optometry office that blends old-school charm and modern-day technology. Inside, a stunning array of frames from labels such as Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Tom Ford, and Gucci await new faces from their perches within a hardwood-accented dispensary. Exams showcase Dr. Friedman’s commitment to up-and-coming technologies, with an onsite lab that carves out precision optics and a retinal camera that snaps accurate records and prepares patients for next season’s eye-activated microwaves.
At Ariyana Dental, multilingual dentist Dr. Arthur Abdiyev uses technology like Panorex imaging, which gives a 360-degree view of infections or structural issues in teeth, sinuses, and bones. He also wields dental cosmetics technology such as thin porcelain lumineers and a safe whitening gel by BriteSmile that activates under low-intensity light. To detect tooth and gum issues, Dr. Abdiyev relies on an intraoral camera, which facilitates views of the mouth that mirrors or open-mouth screams cannot, as well as digital x-rays, which reveal invisible structures for examination on a computer. He also fights decay with pediatric sealants, and extracts wisdom teeth, grafts bones, and performs surgery on gums. Upon spotting flaws in individual teeth, he springs to action with the CEREC machine, which rapidly sculpts or restores compressed porcelain crowns and inlays during one visit.
After board-certified and licensed acupuncturist Mordechai Genut received his Master of Science in oriental medicine and spent time interning in oncology support, he opened his own private practice, GH Acupuncture & Healing. There, he focuses on healing with an emphasis on maintaining a "healthy body, peaceful mind, and a balanced spirit [in] each treatment." Treating conditions such as stress, pain, anxiety, and insomnia, Mordechai utilizes traditional Chinese medicine, performing treatments such as acupuncture, cupping, and qigong, a blend of meditation and breathing exercises that helps bolster full-body circulation and the ability to center one’s qi underwater.
