Bronx Community Wellness Center combines ancient Chinese medicinal practices with modern techniques. That’s perhaps best symbolized by electrical acupuncture, in which electrical signals are sent through needles to create tiny, circulation-stoking muscle twitches. Licensed acupuncturists also use traditional techniques, inserting small, sterile needles into precise points to help restore energy flow and attempt to treat issues such as allergies, indigestion, or anxiety. Licensed massage therapists use Swedish, shiatsu, Thai, and circulatory modalities to evict stress, aches, and long-buried memories of scary clowns from muscles and spines. The Center also offers herbal medicine and classes in subjects such as meditation and yoga.

Housed within the intimate confines of the historic John G. Benson House, D2 Spa & Doula Services matches its cozy Dutch Colonial surroundings with signature massages that earned it a spot in the 2012 edition of InStyle's Beauty Black Book. The spa's team of seven nationally certified therapists customize massages to each client, soothing irritated tissue with gentle Swedish strokes or loosening up sluggish circulation with hot and cold stone therapy. Therapists also bring pairs together during their signature couples massages, which treat side-by-side spouses, friends, or off-duty firemen to bonding experiences ranging from aromatherapy-aided massages to red sea salt back exfoliations and steamy hot towel treatments.
The therapists at WholeBody Therapeutic Massage can certainly help you relax; they're adept at the soothing strokes of Swedish massage, which they refer to as De-Stress Relaxation Therapy. However, they also offer many more styles of massage so that clients can reap the clinical benefits of more therapeutic types of treatment. Neuromuscular massage, for example can help alleviate chronic pain, while postpartum massage can help new mothers bounce back after giving birth by c-section. Scalp and facial massage, meanwhile, help to relieve migraines and boost circulation to keep skin looking young, and geriatric massage helps seniors retain range of motion and improve balance, and can be administered while they're lying down or sitting up.
Plawski Chiropractic combines the skills of not one specialist, but three: a massage therapist, a physical therapist, and Doctor of Chiropractic Marie Plawski herself, a chiropractor with 17 years of experience. Together with NYS licensed massage therapist John Wyler, their skill sets form a voltron of drug-free health care that addresses the full range of skeletal and soft-tissue problems, from pinched nerves in the spine to sore muscles and torn ligaments.
But the team doesn't just administer medical services. Clients looking to untether tension can relax under warm river rocks with a hot-stone massage or extend their feet into a soothing Japanese foot massage.
