ABLE Aesthetics & Wellness, which offers the latest in holistic healing for all ages, celebrated its grand opening in Forest Hills on May 4th.

For Sepideh Peykar, who holds a PhD in physiotherapy, opening a wellness center is a dream come true. Peykar said that she usually has to refer patients to other specialists, but when she has everything under one roof, she can offer her clients treatment options for mind, body and soul at the same time.

Your center uses the latest in holistic healing practices with a compassionate approach in a caring, non judgmental environment.

The new client evaluation process takes about an hour to create a comprehensive treatment plan, which costs $ 99. Prospective customers who join the center’s VIP Text Club will receive advice free of charge by sending “Holistic” to 57838.

Peykar explained that she uses CranioSacral Therapy to treat chronic problems, among other things.

“The CranioSacral Therapy works on the connective tissue that covers the brain, the spinal cord, all organs, the bones, the muscles, the ligaments and the tendons. When there is pain – connective tissue that’s either twisted, just not straight – I don’t apply pressure, just a gentle touch. I’ll iron it out, ”said Peykar.

She is also a Reiki Master and trained in other forms of energy healing that she uses when the client is comfortable, fully attracted during the treatment.

Peykar said the center was designed based on the Feng Shui philosophy, a practice from ancient China that used energy forces to create a harmonious environment.

Customers will certainly feel at home as soon as they step onto the airy first floor, which offers a comfortable, spacious and tastefully furnished waiting area, a large treatment room for physiotherapy and a future lecture hall. The wall colors are calming, sporadically interrupted by paintings – the design corresponds to the Feng Shui theory.

The center focuses on healing physical, emotional and spiritual problems. The All Women team offers a variety of treatment options, including massage therapy and acupuncture, couples psychotherapy and trauma treatment, and facials like Botox, PepFactor and fillers.

Dr. Natalie Guillaume, who is doing her PhD in pain management and oncology from Bastyr University and a master of science degree in acupuncture, said she received additional training in China, Japan and Hong Kong.

“Acupuncture is as effective as internal medicine. I see these very symbiotic relationships in healing, which is why we get great results. We see patients after a stroke who get acupuncture, get cranial stimulation, soak, take their herbs and also see the neurologist, ”said Guillaume. “With this kind of concept that makes acupuncture and Chinese medicine excessive and more inclusive, hopefully people will understand that it’s not one of those, ‘Hey, you want to try it.'”

She also offers Korean acupuncture, which uses fewer needles than Chinese acupuncture – usually four – which is usually inserted into the face.

Massage therapist Meryl Resnick has been a therapist for over 20 years and has experience in Swedish massage, deep tissue massage and sports massage.

“Lots of people are in pain. I’ve worked a lot with people with neck or back pain and knee pain. I also do craniosacral therapy. So it’s integrative, ”said Resnick. “It is a body and mind therapy that is really relaxing and works.”

Dr. Rebecca Obedian specializes in Botox and Juvederm. Their motto is “less is more” for a natural, fresher and rested look. She said that she always suggests to her patients to start with the area that bothers them the most and then take it from there.

Obedian emphasized that she only uses Allergans Botox which she thinks is the best product on the market.

“You want to be able to go out and nobody says, ‘Oh, she’s botched. ‘You want to look natural, but a fresher you, a younger you,’ said Obedian. “You want someone to say, ‘She went on vacation. She looks so good ‘”

Brendan Leavy, Business Development Manager for the Queens Chamber of Commerce, thanked Sepideh Peykar for his membership and provision of preventive medicine and health.

Leavy said the 1,300-member organization supports businesses large and small.

“We are non-profit and our whole job is to support companies and to inform the elected [officials] stop making it difficult to do business in Queens and New York City. That’s why we’re committed to business, ”said Leavy. “We are happy to support you, regardless of whether you are for-profit or non-profit. We love companies. You do jobs. “

Avi Cyperstein, city council candidate for District 29, said he was thrilled that a woman took a chance and started her own business during the pandemic.

“It’s a business that not only provides support and inspiration to other women, but also a place where people can come to get better and healthier. And that’s a nice thing, ”said Cyperstein. “I think we should all try and use this as a source of inspiration to take risks.”
