This little place packs a big punch! – I have been seeing Jessica for Acupuncture for years. I started to see her for an ankle injury. I had a lot of scar tissue built up, but over time the swelling went down and I was able to increase my range of motion. She gave me exercises and muscle rubs to help at home. After that, I decided to see her for many other things I had going on. IBS, colds, muscle injury, jet lag, and overall well being. It's amazing how acupuncture works on so many things! I completely recommend anyone to try it.
I also worked with a Nutritionist at OMBE. During your first session, Stacey asks you what your goals are. I had been having some health issues and I wanted to know what I could do with my diet to help the symptoms. I also mentioned to her that I felt "blocked." Over our next several sessions, Stacey helped find my metabolic type and with that knowledge, I was able to stabilize my blood sugar levels to not feel hungry all the time. She helped me make some very small changes that made a large impact in my health. She gave me new ideas for meals and gluten free substitutes. Stacey doesn't just tell you to eat this or eat that. She tells you why certain foods are good for you and the science behind it. She made me see that it's not just what you eat, but the mind body relationship between the brain and the gut. She encouraged me to see doctors and have the diagnostic tests I needed to get some answers. She wasn't just my nutritionist, she became my support and my rock. All of her emails are signed "Supporting you" and she means it. Now when I plan my meals I think about the nutrients I'll be eating, the health benefits they provide, and the environmental factors involved and I'm better for that!
Amazing Prenatal Massages! – I've seen Nicole at Ombe several times over the last few months for prenatal massages and she is amazing! Prior to visiting Ombe at my doctor's recommendation, I had several other prenatal massages at various spas. While they were nice, the therapists didn't really work on specific areas where I was feeling pain and the massages were more focused on rubbing/aromatherapy oils. I love that Nicole is able to combine a soothing massage with deep massage on the area(s) that have been really bothering me prior to and during my pregnancy. I've seen a huge improvement in the past few months with the intense neck/shoulder pain I was experiencing brought on by my work. I also love the atmosphere at Ombe. It's very peaceful/quiet with soothing decor and such a pleasure to walk into after the busy streets of Boston.
I HIGHLY recommend both Nicole and Ombe for prenatal massages and after reading other reviews I am looking forward to trying some of their classes and additional offerings in the future!
OMBE is all around amazing – In short >OMBE RULES!< You walk in and it is the most relaxing and surprising oasis up and away from the noisy Boston streets. You can tell that all of the practitioners love being there and love what they do which is a huge leap from your typical office situation.
I have been to OMBE for massage, yoga, chiropractic and nutrition and have had wonderful experiences each time I've gone. The staff work together to coordinate in-house referrals etc which makes it really feel like you are "at home" when you are there.
OMBE is definitely onto something and I truly hope that it is a model for the future of medicine. The fact that it is a green business is just the frosting on the cake!
A class with Jenn will help you enjoy the rest of your day! – Jenn Proaska at OMBE is one of the funniest and cheerful people you will ever meet. Her yoga classes are vivacious allowing room for learning, growth, a good sense of humor as well as relaxation. Jenn focuses a lot on runners and their needs specifically through dynamic flows. She also teaches a mediation class which will leave you focused and calm for the rest of the day.
Having trained for multiple marathons, Jenn knows what she is talking about through extensive personal experience, so her opinion and practice certainly make her stand out.
Whether you are new to yoga or meditation... or maybe just looking for something different, go take a class from Jenn and she'll help you enjoy the rest of your day!
Dr. Rho at OMBE is THE BEST! – If you are looking for a Naturopathic doctor then look no more. With the team at OMBE, your wellness goals can be thoroughly addressed especially with their network of support throughout the city. Dr. Rho is the Naturopath at OMBE, and she happens to be one of the most meticulous and kind people I have met.
There are doctors who do their job and then there are doctors who live their job and Dr. Rho is the latter. She is not only thorough and detailed in her approach to her patients, but she is so engaged with her practice that she is always willing to learn and investigate modalities tangent to her scope to ensure their suitability for lack thereof for a patient.
Her attention to the multiple dimensions of health is what makes her so wonderful. She is patient, kind, confident and also makes intelligent and thoughtful referrals when her patients need them. I cannot recommend Dr. Rho enough. You can schedule a consultation to meet with her and review your goals. You'll be hooked after that.
I travel 2 hours to see Kristen for Massage – OMBE is a beautiful space hidden away in Copley Square. As the owner of a healing center, I'm pretty picky about who I see for healing services. That even includes driving 2 hours to see the right person! Kristen is that person for me. She is so knowledgeable about the human body and is a natural healer. Having beat my body up for many years teaching aerobics and gymnastics, I have a lot of injuries I continue to need treatment for. After every session with Kristen, I walk out of OMBE feeling like I have a new body. I have more movement in my neck and my chronic hip pain completely subsides. If I only lived closer, I would be there twice a month. A session with Kristen is well worth the trip from anywhere!
A Great Cleanse Program with Dr. Rho! – I just finished a cleanse program recommended and supervised by Dr. Jacqueline Rho. She tailored the cleanse to my needs and I feel great! During and after the cleanse I had alot of energy - I wasn't sluggish or tired.
Also, I suffered from lower back aches due to bad posture; and sore or "achey" heels from walking around alot. The cleanse took care of that - NOT ONE ACHE AT ALL!! I also suffered from adult acne - my face cleared up. I couldn't believe it. I also lost approximately 15 lbs (171 to 156) in three weeks.
Again, I cannot stress how good I feel. Dr. Rho has a beautiful spirit as she is easy to talk to. She is a very thorough naturopath and nutritionist as she taught me how to eat whole, organic foods and warned me about what foods to avoid. Today, I cook (never did before) instead of eating junk or processed foods. I am extremely happy with the results! I highly recommend her.
Restorative Yoga with Katrina: Just what I needed! – Three months after my second back surgery I am still pretty hesitant to get back into my regular exercise routine. That is why I was so excited to find a Restorative Yoga class so close to my office, in the Back Bay.
The class helped me disengage muscles I didn't even realize I was holding. I left feeling relaxed and my normal sciatic pain was significantly reduced. As a massage therapist I am a huge proponent of restorative because it is a perfect balance to the hectic lives that most of us lead and yet it remains so underrated.
The space is beautiful and Katrina did a great job with the class. Highly recommended!
Must take pilates sessions with Kristen at OMBE – I have spent a few sessions this fall with Kristen R at OMBE and I cannot say enough about her knowledge of the practice and her professionalism. I have had back and hip issues for some time now and every time I leave a session with Kristen, I feel pain-free and rejuvenated. Kristen goes above and beyond the practice of Pilates by sharing her expertise in physical therapy during our sessions and she never pushes me too hard. I appreciate the attention she gives me and I cannot wait until my next session with her. I am going to give her barre class a try in the near future as well. Book your next Pilates session with Kristen!
Pilates with Kristen is THE BEST! – You will be doing yourself an awesome favor if you book private Pilates sessions with Kristen. She is a fantastic instructor who is so sweet and knowledgeable and fun to work under her instruction. Kristen has helped me transform my body to a body I love. I so look forward to my weekly sessions with her and I know attend her incredible barre class, too!
