According to Eastern tradition, chi—the body’s internal energy—flows along a web-like network of pathways throughout the body, connecting the brain to organs and tissues and ultimately serving as a key to wellness. For thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners have treated everything from stress to infertility through these channels, redirecting energy and unblocking paths with sterile, hair-thin needles in an effort to restore balance and natural healing. At Koru Therapy, Geralyn Kruger and Elizabeth Debari continue this time-tested practice, helping alleviate injuries, high blood pressure, depression, and a slew of other conditions.
Elizabeth and Geralyn aren’t alone in their efforts, either—they’re joined by licensed massage therapists Carrie Stevens and Meg Taylor. These muscle gurus calm bodily tissues with custom massages that react and adapt to each client’s individual concerns. Specializing in pregnancy, myofascial, and Swedish modalities, among others, the duo can effectively eliminate chronic pain and tension or rehabilitate injuries obtained through sports or heated games of footsie.
After years of working as physical therapists in the Boston area, Joint Ventures co-owners Dan Brownridge and Dave Larson noticed one major aspect missing from in most clinics—a personal relationship between the healer and patient. The duo created Joint Ventures in an effort to bring those strong relationships to their community through advanced integrated healthcare clinics where each patient gets optimal one-on-one time with their physical therapists. At all seven locations, Dan and Dave’s more than 55 practitioners craft detailed treatment plans using the facility's four-lane pools and cardio and weight machines, including therapies ranging from acupuncture to massage, yoga, or personal training. Throughout each patient’s therapy, the team of practitioners keeps their interpersonal skills on point with regular meaningful patient-therapist conversations that end with the pair weaving BFF bracelets from each others’ hair.
This will go down as the worst period in the history of mankind. First, the economy tanks and forces everyone to buy less Pringles. Then, gas prices force people to walk more, causing foot and back pain. Then, as the foul icing on the crap cake, seasonal allergies get slightly worse across the globe. With the end of the world near (never doubt the Mayans), there's only one way to cope—acupuncture.
Everyone knows that Swedes use a lot of oils in their famous massages, but did you know that Sweden is the world's second-largest consumer of lubricating oils? A 2006 study in The American Examiner of Suspicious Swedish Behavior reported that Swedes annually consume 1,460 gallons of lubricating oils per person. That comes out to exactly four gallons per person per day (leap year not factored in to avoid over-complication). And taking into account that children require less oil to become slick, it appears that adult Swedes may be lathering themselves with up to 12 gallons a day.
