At Riverside Chiropractic Center, Dr. Reza Pourshadi treats his patients with a holistic approach. Rather than simply soothing symptoms as they appear, the doctor ensures the body is in a constant state of wellness. Through spinal adjustments, posture screenings, and nutritional and exercise counseling, Dr. Pourshadi can help patients adhere to sustainable, long-lasting healthy practices. The center also offers massages, cold laser, and ultrasound therapies to assuage lingering chronic pain in joints and muscles.
For many people, relaxing and exercising are very different activities, carried out in very different places. But at RelaXercise Fitness Spa, those two worlds set aside their differences and come together to simultaneously soothe and tone bodies. Wooden accents and soft colors decorate the spa side of the facility, where nail technicians pamper clients and beautify nails with manicures and pedicures. On the fitness end of things, instructors lead groups through high-energy boot camp workouts and the lively dance steps of Zumba. The RelaXercise fitness team also leads multi-week weight loss programs that cover a wide range of topics, including how to burn away unwanted fat, how to avoid roadblocks in dieting, and how to repurpose old jeans and create a second family out of scarecrows.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
Andover Electrology & Laser Center's doctors and staff have eliminated their clients' spider veins, cellulite, and unwanted body hair for more than 20 years. Their list of services is far ranging, from minimizing the appearance of wrinkles to reducing pigmentation or tattoos in the skin. To find the right treatment for each patient, the staff provides free, private consultations, and offers day, evening, and weekend appointment to fit into each client's schedule. And since the staff uses a laser to administer their treatments, the downtime is far less than more conventional, invasive procedures that can require you to lie on the couch watching nothing but The Price is Right for weeks.

No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It’s a pretty stringent philosophy, but it’s one that’s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part support group, Curves is a women’s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Full-body, 30-minute workouts combine strength training, cardiovascular exercises, and stretching into calorie-torching sessions, enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program. The program, available at an extra fee, supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach. Outside the facility, members and non-members alike can purchase a variety of Curves products, from workout apparel and accessories to the protein powders and vitamins used to build strength or distract people from all of the caterpillars in your medicine cabinet.
