From the comforts of peaceful treatment rooms dressed in soft sea-foam-green walls, a friendly and knowledgeable therapist will guide your tootsies into a teeny tank of bio-energy-infused water or your whole person into an Alpha 33 relaxation capsule. During detoxifying foot soaks, electro-magnetic energy within the bath mingles with foreign materials in the body, drawing out toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other yuckies via the 2,000 or so pores in the feet. The water actually changes colors (from clear to a rusty brown) as toxins are expelled, providing a painterly visual of the purification process that is taking place. The elimination of toxins can have many health benefits, including boosting the immune system, maintaining a fit metabolism, normalizing blood pressure and circulation, relieving allergies, improving sexual health, and reducing physical pain.
Cheryl Kuo Seabury, a registered holistic allergist, helms Natural Allergy Relief with a dual emphasis on Eastern healing traditions and Western technology. Cheryl’s drug-free, needle-free allergy intolerance testing commences with a consultation to measure clients’ muscle energy when exposed to allergy-inspiring substances such as pollen, animal fur, and off-key sopranos. The body betrays its allergies when these substances interrupt the energy flow of the muscle and weaken it.
Therapists at Complete Trinity Colon Hydrotherapy perform medical-grade treatments to evict toxins from the body, but that doesn't mean the office has the feel of a doctor's. Instead, flickering candles and modern art complement Asian-inspired decor that stands out against walls of saturated green, purple, and blue. In the softly lit, private treatment rooms, the therapists draw upon a time-tested therapy whose origins stretch back to ancient Egypt. The theory is simple: toxins and waste become stuck in the colon, compacting and hardening the longer they stay there, so by introducing warm water to soften and evacuate the waste, the treatment can render clean bodies with a reduced likelihood of illness.
The therapists who perform the treatment can vouch for its benefits. One, Diana, spent years suffering from intestinal problems before finding relief in hydrotherapy. The other, Nataya, brings her talent for massage to the treatment for an extra dose of healing, leaving clients as relaxed as an abacus during the Y2K scare.
The board-certified internist Dr. Shilpa Sayana created Sayana Medical Spa & Wellness Center to combine aesthetic services with total-body wellness programs.

Dr. Amiel Moshfegh—or Dr. Mosh, as his patients call him—has worked with some of vein therapy's foremost pioneers, including Dr. Robert Min of Cornell Vascular Center. This experience, along with a board certification and ample continuing education, helps him treat all manner of spider vein and varicose vein issues with minimal incisions and downtime. The institute's treatments range from the simple—graduated compression stockings to help control symptoms and grant a perfect last-minute addition to a Christmas mantel—to advanced procedures such as endovenous thermal ablation, a technique invented at Cornell that uses the insertion of a small laser fiber to seal the vein closed in a quick in-office appointment. Dr. Mosh also performs other treatments that call on the latest imaging technology, such as image-guided biopsies and kyphoplasty to treat compression fractures in the spine.
Dr. Java is a staunch believer in an old saying: laughter is the best medicine. And when seeing patients, he and his staff make every effort to keep them feeling relaxed and comfortable as they're being treated. Whether patients are dealing with sprains, warts, or ingrown nails, Dr. Java hopes his extra sense of care makes his patients look forward to a trip to his clinic. In addition to the office?s modern medical devices, which include a laser for toenail-fungus removal, an in-house digital X-ray machine allows Dr. Java to quickly diagnose ailments without having to send patients to another office or through an airport security line.
