Boston's Choice for Physical Therapy. Boston Sports Medicine is a privately owned physical therapy practice specializing in sports rehabilitation, orthopedic rehabilitation, post-surgical rehabilitation, and aquatic therapy with clinics in Allston, Boston, Somerville, and Watertown.
Dr. Steven Bromberg originally specialized in sports medicine, but after dedicating 22 years to treating injuries from a private practice in Cambridge, he felt compelled to make a change. Citing the rise of both stressors and environmental toxins in everyday life, he broadened the scope of his wellness approach and transitioned his practice into a natural, corrective chiropractic-care center called Bromberg Chiropractic. Dr. Bromberg's commitment to whole-body health manifests in myriad ways, from the diversified and mirror-imaging drop-table techniques he uses to restore spinal health to the weight machines and treadmills he stocks his office with in order to help patients through rehab. Another important component is the work of the office's licensed massage therapists, whose Swedish and deep-tissue massages can soothe muscles that are sore from constantly flexing in front of security cameras.
With a diverse menu of therapeutic massage techniques, Natural Healing Center offers a respite from the daily shuffle of work, family, and snorkeling for change at the mall fountain. As a private room flickers with candlelight, the licensed massage therapist can melt muscles with soothing hot stones, or access lower-layer aches with firmer trigger-point pressure. Guests may also request a custom sports massage to improve range of motion and athletic performance. Drivers can park four-wheeled friends for free after 1:30 p.m. behind the spa, and train travelers can hike the short distance from Porter Square. Wifi is also available within the building.

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.
Licensed massage therapist Lotachi Izuchi is a firm believer in "traditional" medicine such as massage and herbology––the medicine of her ancestors. When combined with modern practices learned at the Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy, these ancient methods become very powerful and safe forms of healing. Massage may help with releasing tension, pain, anxiety, and stress, while improving muscle health and relaxation. In the comfort of Lotachi's cozy Sankofa studio, clients may request reiki energy work with aromatherapy, as well as more direct hot-stone and deep-tissue massage techniques. Each session also includes an intake and exit interview to go over any concerns and discuss self-care recommendations for maximum results.
