Precision Health & Wellness Center's experienced massage therapists offer a trio of massage modalities to eliminate stress and tension. Clients can reduce torso-trapped stress during a one-hour Swedish massage, which employs gentle strokes and firm kneading to intimidate knot bullies into leaving town. Deep-tissue massage utilizes targeted pressure and power movements to trigger a tendon chain reaction of relaxation that may also relieve chronic pain. Physical laborers, sportsmen, and veteran soccer balls can eliminate the aches of athletic competition with a sports massage, a treatment that soothes overworked muscles to enhance performance. Customers can treat their back muscles to a therapeutic session during Precision Health & Wellness Center's office hours on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Dr. Kam Tareen trained in acupuncture at what might be an unexpected place: Harvard Medical School. The course he took there united ancient medicinal practices with Western ones, helping him to practice both. At Advanced Physician Acupuncture, though, he focuses on the former. His treatments include Japanese acupuncture, ear acupuncture for bodywide pain control, massage therapy, and nonsurgical Face-Lifts, which rely on acupuncture needles to stoke the face's production of collagen.
Balance Health Center takes a holistic approach to wellness by offering chemical-free body treatments and classes that promote balance within the mind and body. The center's nontraditional healing approaches include acupuncture, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, treatments that all aim to heal the body without unnatural substances.
Spa services encompass waxing and seven-step facials, and bodies can acquire a bronze glow with the center's version of sunless tanning that relies on an organic, citrus-scented solution rather than the sun's hand-me-down rays. Relaxation's role in personal balance asserts itself in assorted scalp massages, hot-stone therapy, and aromatherapy as well as in spa massages that integrate essential oils. Helping guests to bring the center's philosophies home, Balance Health Center hosts classes and workshops on herbology, stretching, and yoga.
Holding multiple diplomas in acupuncture and Chinese herbology, Six Fishes Healing Arts founder and head practitioner Cara Frank draws upon three decades of experience to heal patients with Eastern and holistic modalities. Frank and her colleagues Tansy Briggs and Jennifer Harrison specialize in internal medicine, addressing a variety of ailments within an office boasting exposed-brick walls, wisdom-crammed bookshelves, and huge windows swathed with bright red curtains. The trio uses acupuncture, massage, herbs, and nutrition counseling to holistically treat chronic symptoms by aligning the mind, body, and spirit.
Knead Body Boutique's self-explanatory name hints at its endeavors: kneading bodies with the aim to relax clients or alleviate achy areas. The staff's techniques run the gamut from a deep-tissue massage and reflexology to the use of heated stones and cupping. Massages, which can last from 15 to 120 minutes, prep bodies for organic body wraps crafted from a mango passion fruit balm, seaweed, or the cocoon of a giant caterpillar.
