Best Acupuncture Center
"Ever-soothing Jessica Molleur is the big draw here. The Back Bay acupuncturist and herbalist moved her popular OMBE practice to this center last month, bringing along a loyal following (she’s known for her uncanny magic with fertility woes). Chiropractor Jean Kelly—who’s cracked Olympic athletes and members of the Boston Ballet into shape—is just down the hall, so it’s a one-stop tune-up."

At OMBE, “green” has a deeper meaning: it stands for guest services, recycle, environment, energy conservation, and neighborhood: the pillars of the company."

Best of Boston: Massage
"At this integrative health center four floors above Copley Square, our therapist kicked off the 80-minute massage by asking about problem areas and preferences—and actually listened. After guiding our limbs through a series of stretches on the heated table, she kneaded shoulders, back, neck, and quads with the hard pressure we crave (and often request, but don't get). And green practices (down to the organic Badger balm and body oil and linens cleaned with an eco-friendly detergent) left our inner tree-hugger at peace, too."
