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!

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!
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.
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!
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!

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!

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.

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!
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!
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!

I'm new to yoga and OMBE was perfect for me. The staff members were helpful and welcoming - they even have a tea bar! I took a Vinyasa class with Katrina, who was super helpful and attentive. I easily found my rhythm & was able to relax and concentrate while learning some new movements.
I also really appreciated the environmentally friendly practices at OMBE. OMBE has a great atmosphere and is conveniently located in Copley Square. I'd highly recommend it!

When i walked into OMBE, I didn't really know what to expect. Upon entering I was immediately wow-ed. It had a feeling, sort of like walking into Whole Foods, where you can't really pin point what it is, but something about the space is just welcoming and makes you feel good.
Fortunately, there's more to OMBE than just the vibe. My vinyasa class with Katrina was all about the yoga. It was intimate and personalized in the studio overlooking Copley Square. Here, it was easy to get lost in the flow and challenge myself in new ways.
I find in yoga, it's really easy to ""do it wrong"". In the intimacy of OMBE and with Katrina's guidance, it was awesome to get minor corrections and also the assurance that I'm doing it just fine. Her attitude toward yoga was encouraging and I'm STOKED for my next class and progression in yoga.

I have been seeing Nicole for massage therapy for many years. I recently visited her at OMBE, where the ambiance is very calm and soothing to the soul. The atmosphere, topped off with Nicole's ability to listen and understand what particular areas I need worked on, was a rewarding experience. I have osteoarthritis in my hands and knees, and chronic tension in my back and shoulders which often results in sciatic pain. She always knows how to apply just the right amount of pressure to loosen up the knots around my shoulder blades. My massage visits to Nicole help me to avoid taking medication, which I would otherwise have to rely on to manage my pain! I highly recommend Nicole as a massage therapist to anyone seeking a pleasurable escape from stress- either physical or emotional.

Stacey helped expand my palette by introducing me to so many different types of foods. She taught me about the health and environmental benefits of enjoying a diet based in clean whole foods and also how to prepare them to be flavorful. I had no idea that meant something as easy as swapping out pasta or bread for whole grains (kasha and quinoa are my two favorite). Stacey showed me how to also shop for and prepare a wide variety of seasonal vegetables that I would have otherwise turned away from in the grocery store and farmer

I had a wonderful massage with Sarah this past weekend. I told her that I was preparing for a race and had been having problems with my hamstring while training. I walked out of the massage feeling better than I had since I started my training. I also felt more relaxed and less stressed. The atmosphere of facility was very welcoming, a perfect setting for a massage. I definitely recommend OMBE and massage services offered by Sarah.

Dr. Jacqueline Rho is a comprehensive doctor who provides the most authentic and individualized care for all her patients. After learning that a number of family members suffer from chronic heart disease and arthritis, I decided to self-educate on ways to avoid or prolong these conditions. I started with the internet as my resource and received an abundance of information. I was quickly overwhelmed with the conflicting information leaving me with feelings of anxiety and confusion. I decided to seek professional care, and immediately arranged an appointment at OMBE. Dr. Rho thoroughly covered my medical history, listened to my concerns, and conducted a complete physical exam. Her ability to explain the true meaning of health and common denominators to chronic disease astounded me. I left with a comprehensive customized plain, greater knowledge, and higher self confidence. I am forever grateful for Dr. Jacqueline Rho

I'm feeling revitalized after a massage with Sarah. I was experiencing serious shoulder and neck pain for three weeks after I over-exerted myself in a kick-boxing class, and Sarah did a great job alleviating the pain. She incorporated hot and cold packs into the massage, and after the massage was over she recommended a few stretches and strength exercises to help keep the pain away. I will definitely go back to OMBE for my next massage.

My orthopedist is the one who sent to the OMBE. I had a bulging disc in my neck and she recommended acupuncture as part of my treatment. Enter Jessica Molleur, best acupuncturist IMHO, and the owner of OMBE.
The silver lining of the disc problem is what Jessica had been able to do for my migraines. I've been plagued for ten years and seen a few other acupuncturists to no avail.
With Jessica, I've seen unbelievable results. My migraines aren't gone (yet!) but they're less frequent, less intense, and more manageable.

First let me say that the space that OMBE occupies is warm and inviting, the staff makes you feel right at home. The location is conveniently located on Boylston near the Coply T stop.
I have been to see Chiropractors in the past and I was a little skeptical as the previous adjustments mainly involved back cracking and sending me on my way, sometimes feeling worse than when I got there. My experience with Dr. Erik Vose was the complete opposite, he does do adjustments but that is only part of his treatments. I had 2 main problems; a sciatic nerve issue and lower back discomfort. Dr. Vose listen to my symptoms, asked questions, and explained what he was planning on for treatment. Most of his treatment involved stretching and deep tissue manipulation on my muscles in hope to loosen up the troubled areas. He also gave me some stretches and exercises to do at home in between visits. My sciatic issue was a thing of the past in a few visits making my daily life so much better! The stretching, exercises and follow up visits have helped manage my chronic lower back pain.
I highly recommend Dr. Vose if you are in need of a highly skilled, competent and caring chiropractor.
