Licensed acupuncturist Eileen Karn has used alternative Chinese medicine to strengthen the bodies, minds, and spirits of her clients since 1985. The health guru customizes treatment plans to target each patient's specific issues and goals, using thin acupuncture needles to treat chronic health conditions and take down incoming flocks of birthday balloons. Sessions pair with herbal medicine and nutrition-response testing to help bodies to maintain a light and fluffy state of well-being after they leave the center. Additionally, staff massage therapists battle stress with 10 techniques, including Japanese reiki, which aims to activate the body's energy centers and power up its night-vision mode.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
As a graduate of Columbia University's School of Dental Medicine and the former director of dental implantology at Lutheran Medical Center, Dr. Gerald Cohen confidently tends to his patients' long-term oral health while also renovating smiles with the latest cosmetic treatments. Along with the expertise of its staff, the sophisticated practice fights off decay and beautifies precious enamel deposits with help from high-tech gadgets such as a 3-D cone beam scanner, which accurately analyzes mouthscapes with a significant reduction in radiation, and digital impressions that negate the need for messy tooth trays or tooth-fingerprint kits. Routine exams and cleanings guard against cavities and oral cancer, and Dr. Cohen's onsite dental lab speedily constructs personalized implants and veneers to ensure a perfect match for each patient's mouth. As a testament to Greenwich Cosmetic Dentistry's commitment to technology and patient comfort, staff provide each guest with an iPad to occupy them as they wait and offer sedation dentistry for nervous patients to allow them to sleep through their treatment and awaken on the first day of spring.
