NORTHAMPTON — Northampton Wellness Associates, an established group of medical practitioners offering integrative care for allergy, chronic illness, and pain relief, has moved its offices to 395 Pleasant St.
The telephone number will remain the same at (413) 584-7787.
The group has been in the Maplewood Shops for 17 years. Barry D. Elson, M.D., the group’s medical director, said the new location will offer improved facilities for patients, including ample free parking and total wheelchair access.
“But the best part,” he said, “is that the building supports our cooperative style of care. The layout will be more comfortable for patients. And it will improve communication between practitioners, who often work as a team.”
That team includes Elson, a physician who specializes in nutritional and integrative medicine for chronic illness and allergy; John Macatee, DO, a physician who specializes in osteopathic manipulation, cranial osteopathy, and integrative medicine; Lisa Brassard Nicotera, DC, RN, a chiropractor therapist who provides myofacial release and craniosacral therapy; Catherine McGarty, NP, a nurse practitioner specializing in allergy, clinical nutrition, trigger-point therapy for muscle pain, and yoga/exercise rehabilitation; Vicki Elson, MA, CCE, a childbirth educator; and Steven Tenenbaum, LICSW, a psychotherapist with special skills in stress management.
Midwifery Care of Holyoke will also have its Northampton office in the building.
