Steve Zivich, M.D.

DIRECT PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN

Steve Zivich

Steve Zivich completed his undergraduate degree in Biology with a minor in Music at the James Madison University in Virginia. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, completed a Surgical Internship at Boston Medical Center and Residency in Family Medicine in 2015 at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After completion of his training, Steve returned to Boston to work at Community Health Center.

The most rewarding part of being a physician is making a positive difference in my patients’ lives. I always enjoyed the time I spend with my patients, but I found that the barriers and restrictions placed by insurance companies was preventing me being the doctor I sought out to be.

Steve was ecstatic to find a new style of medical practice called Direct Primary Care (DPC) that would allow him to focus on the doctor-patient relationship. DPC allows for quality time with his patients, without having to rush through visits or adjust necessary medical therapies based simply on what insurance dictated. This allows Steve to keep the focus on where health care belongs: on you, the patient.

Steve’s areas of special interest include preventative health and management of chronic illnesses, including HIV; metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity; sports-related injuries; and caring for patients in the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender communities.

Steve is excited to be a part of the lives of the patients of Boston Direct Health, and to finally be able to be the family doctor that he have always wanted to be and that you deserve.

Brian Barkwell

Brian Barkwell

PHYSICAL THERAPY

brian.jpg

Physical therapists diagnose, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system including rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery. Physical therapists are trained in the treatment of post-operative orthopedic procedures, fractures, acute sports injuries, arthritis, sprains, strains, back and neck pain, and spinal conditions. Joint and spine mobilization/manipulation, therapeutic exercise, and neuromuscular re-education are modalities often used to expedite recovery in the orthopedic setting. Those who have suffered injury or disease affecting the muscles, bones, ligaments, or tendons of the body will benefit from assessment by a physical therapist.

Brian Barkwell, MSPT, with a Masters in Physical Therapy degree from Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY, provides one-on-one injury rehabilitation that stands apart from the “factory” feel of many outpatient clinics.  With 14 years experience providing services to 900+ Bostonians out of a gym and private training studio in the South End, Brian’s approach combines therapeutic exercise to teach you how to recover from injury, along with a healthy dose of manual therapy to relieve pain.  If you have one of the insurances listed below, you can call the member services number on the back of your membership card to find out your “in-network outpatient physical therapy benefit”.

Jennifer Campoli

Jennifer Campoli 

NUTRITION COACH

Jen C 2.jpg

My Philosophy
I believe that each person has the wisdom to find ultimate health, vitality, energy and balance. As a health coach, I am here to help you take the necessary steps to uncover that wisdom within and use it to create the life you desire! I believe that food, health, and life should be savored! When we give ourselves permission to slow down and look at how our food, our exercise, and our choices influence our body, we experience so much! Health coaching is the chance to go on a brilliant journey. A journey where you and I, together, discover how to fuel, nourish and respect your body, mind and spirit.

My Approach
My goal is to help you define what healthy means in your life because you are unique! Your needs are specific to YOU and you alone. In order to meet those needs, you deserve a personalized coaching program that is catered to only you. We will explore what foods, exercise, and lifestyle choices heal and energize your body. I will guide you in making gradual, lifelong changes that build upon your strengths and help make every goal a reality!

A Holistic Mind
I practice holistic health coaching. This means that I look not only at food but at the large pieces of your life that influence your body and mind, and how we can establish a connection amongst it all. We will incorporate what are called primary foods, the many facets of your life that contribute to health and vitality including physical activity, relationships, career and spirituality, to provide you true balance within.

An Intuitive Specialty
I specialize in a teaching approach called Intuitive Eating, which is ideal for individuals who have struggled with chronic dieting, disordered eating, weight loss/gain cycles, and body image. Intuitive Eating, a nutrition philosophy developed by Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch is a powerful tool that guides you in learning how to create a lifelong healthy relationship with food, the mind and body; where YOU ultimately become the expert of your own body. You will learn how to make peace with food and emotional eating, letting go of food restriction and food rules. The core premise of this approach is learning how to respond to your inner cues and inner wisdom.

  • 5+ package 1 hr session – $95 per session

  • 75 min one time Nutrition & Fitness Assessment – $190

 

I had been suffering with issues with food for a while. I would gain some weight, diet, lose the weight and then eventually gain it all back (sometimes plus more). I finally got sick of my unhealthy relationship with food and with my body and wanted to end this struggle once and for all. I happened to stumble upon Jenn’s blog and noticed her experience with intuitive eating which intrigued me. As luck would have it Jenn was offering a special on her coaching and I felt compelled to reach out to her. Speaking with Jenn was like a breath of fresh air. I realized I was not alone in this battle and it was helpful to finally express what I had been dealing with internally and receive non-judgmental and genuinely kind feedback. While working with Jenn I have gained some valuable tools to help with my journey to achieve a healthy lifestyle. These tools included learning the intuitive eating principals and figuring out what works for me, learning how to bring fun back to the kitchen and experiment with new and interesting foods, finding fun and enjoyment out of physical activity and exercise, developing a sense of confidence and achievement about the person I am today, dealing with my “inner gremlin” and working to bring my Circle of Life back into balance. In just a few short months working with Jenn I feel more secure and confident that a healthy lifestyle and attitude toward food and my body is achievable and maintainable.

Mark Forrest Dodd

MASSAGE THERAPIST

MarkDodd.jpg

Mark graduated from The Massage Institute of New England in 1996 having completed 1,000 professional hours. He then studied  200 professional hours with world renowned Rolfer, Tom Myers, (Anatomy Trains). Mark was voted 2006 “Best of Boston for Massage Therapist” in the Improper Bostonian. His review read as:

You won’t see any advertisements for Mark F Dodd’s services. In fact, you won’t even be able to find him in the yellow pages. He’s always done just fine by word of mouth. Truth be told, we’re a little reluctant to share the secret. Dodd uses a combination of Swedish/Deep tissue massage techniques on a clientele that includes some of the hardest bodies in Boston. He’s under contract to Boston Ballet (located across the street) to work with the dancers, and a lot of theatre people passing through town manage to hear about him as well. Once you have paid a visit to this muscular ex- chef, you might discover new muscles you never knew you had. There are no oils, no lotions, no wraps. It is just you, the Tiger Balm/Bio-Tone combo and Dodd’s gifted hands.

In addition to working with Boston Ballet since 2001, Mark has worked on dancers and choreographers from many ballet companies including Royal, Kirov, San Francisco, New York City, American Ballet Theater, and Mark Morris.

In November 2010 Mark graduated from “The Aesthetic Institute of Boston” having completed 300+ hours of studies. He currently offers aesthetics, facials, and waxing using European organic products by Weleda International.

Mark graduated in 1990 from “The Culinary Institute of America” Hyde Park NY and was sous chef/chef de saucier at the Ritz Carlton Boston until 1998.

After my deep tissue massage with Mark Dodd, who I believe is THE best in Boston, I will never go back to any other type of massage. One massage therapy session with Mark cured almost all of my pain. I really appreciated him informing me why certain tight muscles of mine were causing the pain I was feeling. Walking out of my massage I felt like I was on cloud nine. By body had not felt so relaxed and aligned in years. He truly is a miracle worker!

I have trained with Susan for almost a year now and have nothing but good things to say. I was referred by my close friend who lost 40lbs over a few months of training with her through working out and a serious diet overhaul. She is incredibly flexible and schedules appointments week to week with me around my hectic schedule. Her availability in her studio, at my home or outside ( weather permitting) keeps the training interesting. Our workouts vary based on my current needs and she always finds a way to make it fun. I highly recommend her whether you are making fitness goals or just maintaining your health.

Kayla Mehr is Boston’s premier Pre and Postnatal Specialist!

Kayla grew up in an Italian family that used food as a way to come together and socialize. Although she had danced, strength trained, and ran cross country in school, she always struggled with her weight. It wasn’t until college that Kayla decided it was time to make changes in her life. After learning “smarter” ways of working out rather than “harder” and learning more about nutrition, Kayla lost 30 pounds and that is where her passion for health and fitness began.

After college, Kayla moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in Fitness. She began as a Personal Trainer at Equinox in West Hollywood, CA. While she was there, Kayla was hired to train Mickey Rourke during preparation for his role in The Wrestler, as well as other celebrities. She also gained numerous certifications, competed and won her first Bikini Competition and participated in a Triathlon. After a few years, Kayla took her experience and moved back East to be closer to her family.

She has been a Personal Trainer for over 10 years and pre and postnatal certified for 5. She’s worked with tons of expecting moms and when it came time for her to become pregnant she took a harder look at all the conflicting and confusing information out there about working out while pregnant. She dove in and did extensive research and even interviewed doctors, nutritionists and moms to fully understand how working out effects the mom and growing baby. Kayla has created a tried and true pre & postnatal training program that is safe, effective and enjoyable. Not only will she keep you strong throughout pregnancy and prepare you for the marathon of motherhood, but she will help you recover quickly and safely! She also has a huge community in Boston of pre/postnatal recourses and other moms who can help support you every step of the way.

Kayla gave birth to her first son in June 2018. Four and a half months postpartum from a C section, without any dieting, she is back to her pre-bably weight and although very tired and sleep deprived, she’s feeling stronger than she could imagine!

Jennifer is amazing. I worked with her for about a year, and the workouts we did were fun and very effective. After about 6 months of working with her, a friend of mine said (after seeing me in a bikini) “wow, it's like you have a different body.” Not only is training with her effective, but she engages you in such a manner that it feels like you hardly worked. For sure, the next day your muscles inform you that you did the work, but Jennifer is so easy-going and personable that it's like you were hanging out with a friend, who happens to also kick you into shape!
