Not content to merely spruce up the surface, medical director Dr. Desai believes that quality aesthetic clinical care should "pamper the body, spirit and soul of today's busy women and men." Throughout her osteopathic medical career, she's honed a focus on wellness and prevention, which now translates to highly personalized nonsurgical solutions. Using lasers, she banishes unwanted hair, spider veins, scars, and nail fungus, and she uses injectables to smooth over wrinkles on the skin and help make the bed.
At Holistic Physical Therapy, Dr. Gigi Siton and her team know that health isn't purely physical?it's also emotional, social, and spiritual. As they work, they strive to foster wellness in all these areas, whether they're realigning vertebrae with spinal traction, rebalancing the body's energy with acupuncture sessions, or explaining the basics of juicing. These, along with their other services, can be customized to treat almost any ailment, from back pain to headaches.
Back in 1993, Dr. Sterling Carter snatched up his first biology degree. Undaunted by post-graduate malaise, he tucked into a Physical Therapy Bachelors program, before ordering up a second helping of academia with a Masters in Physical Therapy and then completing a doctorate in the subject from Simmons College. Perhaps the preternatural focus came from his military career, which he embarked on five years before he ever cart-wheeled into his first biology class. Today, he continues to serve in the military as a therapist while managing his own business for private citizens, Sterling Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation.
In addition to the good old fashioned assisted stretches, rehabilitative exercises, and massage commonly found at many physical therapy practices, Dr. Carter makes use of technological innovations hot of the technology presses. In the hands-on department, he and staff conduct spinal decompression treatments for the neck and back, using a device that mechanically, but gently, stretches the back bone. He also unholsters cold lasers—non-thermal lights which can aid in reducing inflammation, pain, and the number of minutes per day you feel like you're not at a rave. Regardless of what treatment patients come to see him for—which ranges from injury rehabilitation to sports enhancement—Dr. Carter makes sure that nobody waits for more than 10 minutes.
