As surgical director of NYC Surgical Associates, Dr. David Greuner is tasked with staying on the cutting edge of minimally invasive procedures that require as little downtime as possible from his patients? fast-paced lives. However, the double board-certified surgeon's reach isn't limited to those who come into the office. As a past contributor to The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and the news broadcasts of both ABC and CBS, Dr. Greuner often finds himself addressing a nationwide audience.
Of course, he earned his spot as one of his specialty's go-to experts through years of training and innovation. As a pioneer of No-Knife EVLT, Dr. Greuner took much of the pain out of spider- and varicose-vein treatments, creating a system that closes blood vessels with a laser instead of a switchblade. His efforts earned him a Top Surgeon designation from Consumers' Research Council of America three years in a row and professional leadership roles as a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the International College of Surgeons. They also translated into professional success; with six offices throughout the New York metro area, Dr. Greuner now oversees a team of practitioners that specializes in minimally invasive vascular and cosmetic procedures.

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.
