Patrons at Elements Massage pair up with the therapist best qualified to address specific personal issues and concerns. Therapists then spend time with clients, gathering information about their conditions before customizing massages. During the massage, the therapists intuitively blend a variety of modalities, such as deep tissue, Swedish, and trigger-point therapy.
Throughout the process, the therapist keeps communication going. The team uses a system by which clients can communicate the desired level of pressure; level 1 corresponds to long, light strokes over superficial muscles, and level 4 uses some force to root out embedded knots. Through this system, the therapist can get at all depths of tension while remaining well within the client?s comfort zone.

Dr. James Morgan has worked tirelessly to bring healthcare to Cité Soleil, Haiti. In 2006, he and a human-rights attorney founded The Lamp for Haiti, which provides medical services to Haitians living in one of the poorest communities in the Western Hemisphere. He treats these patients with the same compassion and respect as he does his patients at M.C. Medical Group, where he is one of five highly accredited doctors; others boast such achievements as graduating magna cum laude from Yale and receiving an assistant professorship at Loyola University Health Systems. Together, they literally treat the body from the inside out with both an internal-medicine division and a dermatology division that tends to hair, skin, and nails. M.C. Medical Group also houses a cosmetic and laser-skincare clinic where patients can receive facials and peels or have their barcode tattoos read.
Unlike the polyurethane hairpieces and novelty golf visors manufactured by other hair-replacement companies, the translucent HairLucent system used at Masterlink creates a soft, natural hairline and allows the scalp to breathe. The natural-looking hair replacement system allows light to reflect naturally off the head, creating an attractive look whether you?re in the spotlight or candlelight. A wander through the company?s photo gallery provides a sampling of client scalps, each showcasing a healthy head of hair in a variety of colors, lengths, densities, and textures.
Dr. Warren Richman welcomes clients of all ages to his Clifton practice, where he channels more than 37 years of experience that included stints in the clinical faculty at the Fairleigh Dickinson Dental School and at the postgraduate dental clinic of Beth Israel Hospital. At his comfortable practice, Dr. Warren Richman takes a gentle approach as he administers exams and cleanings, performs root canals, or restores implants and veneers. He also provides whitening services that make teeth feel healthy, as well as emergency treatments when his clients need urgent care or when his clients' chattering teeth fall apart before their vaudeville routines.
The team at Advanced Physical Therapy uses drug-free techniques to assuage aches, strengthen muscles, and rehabilitate injuries. Their back-care program helps patients return to a normal routine after an accident or a limbo tournament, while an athletic-conditioning regimen facilitates training to optimize fitness and endurance. Staff members also utilize their extensive anatomy and physiology expertise during massages, which can tame stiff joints, relieve tension, and inspire a deep-seated sense of calm.
