With training gained from every corner of the globe, Dr. Lawrence Petracco's team of specialists—which includes chiropractors, a physical therapist, and an acupuncture expert—take a preventative, whole-body approach to assuaging physical aches.

The experienced ophthalmologists at Manhattan Lasik Center have successfully sharpened the vision of more than 50,000 pairs of peepers using some of the latest technology in the field. They only perform LASIK and laser vision-correction surgeries at this facility, so patients can count on specialized expertise in the doctors' care and their prowess at laser tag. Free consultations help to determine which option from their menu of treatments is best for individual specs wearers.
NY NJ Lasik stretches its five fully equipped clinics, including a Manhattan location for fuzzy-sighted New Yorkers, across its two neighboring East Coast states. Each facility is presided over by its own board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in the use of laser-based technology, such as LASIK and PRK, to restore eyesight lost to astigmatisms and far- or nearsightedness. Over the past 15 years, they have performed upward of 50,000 of the outpatient laser procedures, turning once-squinty patients into crystal-clear seers.
The clinics’ lineup of expert eye docs includes Dr. Mark Buchsbaum and Dr. Irida Llambiri, both of whom regularly engage prospective LASIK patients in complimentary consultations. During these brief meetings, they either deem the patient to be a suitable candidate for LASIK, recommend an alternative surgery, or advise patients to remove their photographic memory's lens cap.
At Spa Jolie, aestheticians, massage therapists, and laser technicians cull techniques from a variety of cultures to beautify their clients. Reflexology, a 4,000-year-old Chinese method of applying pressure to specific points in the hands and feet, joins traditional Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to soothe weary physiques. Fresh, European seaweed makes up one of the layers in the four-layer facial to help tone and tighten the skin. When performing the ancient Indian technique of threading, technicians capture unwanted facial hair between twists of cotton fibers. These culturally diverse practices appear alongside a roster of lasers, made from all-natural, locally harvested machine parts, which help reduce cellulite and even whiten teeth.
