A spa-like holistic healing center founded by Dr. JoAnn Weinrib, Body Central offers serious therapeutic treatments. Services include chiropractic care, sports medicine, nutrition counseling, women’s health programs (focusing on fertility, breast cancer, and pre- and post-natal care), and reflexology. The center also offers some of the most targeted massages in town, including craniosacral, Swedish, deep-tissue, and Shiatsu. Integrative care is the key here; a client who comes in for back pain may start with chiropractic treatments with the doctor, and then be referred to an in-house massage therapist or fitness trainer to help increase range of motion, build strength, and prevent future problems. Weinrib has received much acclaim for her specialty services like Sinus Therapy, an all-natural method that releases pressure around the eyes and nose, and Jaw Release Therapy (which uses ultrasound and subtle cranial adjustments), for people who suffer from teeth grinding or clenching or from TMJ. As part of the holistic approach, all treatments include an evaluation of how a patient’s lifestyle may be contributing to the problem, as well as suggestions for supplements and careful instructions about home care. Body Central shares its space with an Ayurvedic skincare spa and offers packages with nearby Core Pilates studio to further help satisfy your wellness needs.Sales
