People come to Joint Ventures for the artistic strokes of their skilled massage therapists. Few know that Artistic Strokes was also the name of an ill-fated TV program, a spin-off from the much-beloved Diff’rent Strokes.
The series, starring Andy Warhol, was considered too avant-garde and never aired. The pilot featured a deaf linguistics professor, played by Warhol, who visits Mr. Drummond’s penthouse to teach Arnold and Willis about the military-industrial complex.
During the episode, Warhol’s character repeats—in sign language—President Eisenhower’s entire farewell address, in which the outgoing president warned of the increasingly aligned interests of governments and weapons industries. In the second act, the professor’s twin brother, a New York artist named Andy Warhol (also played by Warhol), interrupts his brother’s recitation, causing Gary Coleman’s Albert to deliver a variation of his catchphrase: “What’choo talkin’ ‘bout, Warhol?”
The entire cast, including the two characters played by Warhol, then stares into the camera in silence for the remaining 15 minutes of the episode.

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, a factor that has no doubt contributed to the center's long list of accolades.
