I was diagnosed with a thyroid issue at the beginning of the year and have always had PCOS. I was told to go to an endocrinologist but had to wait 4 months for an appt. I went to Natalie immediately for help to try to address my thyroid issue. She really listens and digs into the full picture of everything ever in your health history to connect symptoms that I had never realized were connected or could be changed about me (ie dry skin). She educated me so much and truly has steered me into living a completely different lifestyle when it comes to what/how/when I eat, drink, sleep etc! When it finally came time for my endocrinologist appointment, I was educating my endocrinologist and asking good questions and not just taking what she said as the answer. The endocrinologist wanted to treat the pcos and thyroid issue as 2 separate issues, she didn’t believe they were related… despite both being hormonal issues!? They also didn’t do a full thyroid panel or compare my results to the results from 4 months earlier. Natalie did and pointed out that despite some being too low/high, some of the numbers were improving. It’s been 6 months now and I just got my period for the first time in several YEARS. So it feels amazing to know that my efforts, through Natalie’s guidance, are slowly healing my body. I know it won’t happen overnight but am so grateful to have Natalie as a resource in my life to help me overcome health issues, especially when traditional doctors don’t have answers.

I have been a client of Natalie’s for about 7 years now. Until this year Natalie was solely my esthetician, helping me literally turn back the clock when it came to aging without the use of botox or fillers. Natalie and I would often discuss diet and lifestyle habits that could affect the quality and appearance of the skin. During these conversations I was always in awe of Natalie’s knowledge of the body and her curiosity about my overall health. She listened compassionately as I shared issues related to my thyroid and hormone health and my frustration with generally feeling unwell. So earlier this year when Natalie began offering functional medicine services, I came onboard right away.

Prior to working with Natalie I had worked with several functional medicine practitioners. Not one has helped me the way that Natalie has. Her listening skills are unparalleled. She listens critically but also with great compassion. When you share your issues with her you don’t feel judged or “crazy”. She asks questions and probes with the skill of a researcher, trying to unearth as much information as she can to direct her work. Once she complies all of the information, she determines what testing is necessary for her to get a better picture of what is going on in your body. Natalie is thoughtful and deliberate when it comes to selecting testing. Previous practitioners would just list out thousands of dollars of testing, insisting that I needed every single one. Natalie is not like that. In fact, one of the tests Natalie selected for me was one that no other practitioner had offered me. It was actually a very affordable test. And as it turned out, that test gave me the most important information of all. I had been suffering from a parasite for some time. Without Natalie’s suggestion, I never would have taken this particular test or found out about the stealth infection hiding out and wreaking havoc in my gut.

After working with Natalie these last few months I have seen HUGE improvements in my overall health. I plan on continuing my work with Natalie, confident that my improvements will be even greater.

I highly recommend working with Natalie! You will not be disappointed!

I had a CooLifting treatment on my face. I left super hydrated and my skin looks amazing. Perfect treatment for winter. Thank you.

Bill Hinchley

I’ve never felt moved to write a Google review before. I’m doing this just because Natalie is that good. (“Good” isn’t a good enough word. She’s amazing.) I have seen her for facials for a number of years and always appreciated her scientific approach, her dedicated research skills, and her ability to sift through all the latest technologies and products in a critical way, selecting only the best for her clients. She’s also technically gifted–great at massage and application of products (I often fall asleep during treatments, because she’s so relaxing and gentle). Just from those visits, my skin noticeably improved (texture, elasticity, and redness).I’m a pretty skeptical person, so when she said she was starting to offer functional medicine consultations, I unsure if it was for me. She didn’t push it at all though (this is something I appreciate about Natalie as well–she never over-sells). Eventually, because I trusted her skills and her scientific mind, I decided to take a leap.I went for a consultation with generalized symptoms–nothing conventional medicine could help with, mostly relating to inflammation.I went through the whole functional medicine program. Natalie was very patient with my over-burdened scheduled and inability to completely conform to each of her recommendations. She kept adapting to my needs while also making clear which of her recommendations was most important. She provided lots of information, including primary source articles from science journals, which I appreciated (I imagine the amount of information could be too much for some people, but I think she adapts to each client). I took her recommendations to heart and was eventually able to make major lifestyle changes.About three months later I learned that I had cleared a chronic infection; my systolic blood pressure was down ten points; my joint inflammation was completely gone; I no longer had recurring headaches; and my skin was less sensitive. I also lost over twenty pounds, which wasn’t something I was trying to do, but it happened as a positive side-effect. (I actually continue to lose weight.) The changes were almost unbelievable.I’m not saying functional medicine is a cure-all. I still manage sensitivity issues, and I’m sure my routine will have to adapt as I age, but I am *so* glad I found Natalie to help me through all this. I have never had such positive results from a health and wellness routine, and I have tried many (whole 30, cleanses, elimination diets, fasts). I trust Natalie completely and recommend her fully, without reservation.

Emily du Houx

Natalie at Unique Verve provided me with the most thorough facial and evaluation I have ever received. And I have had many facials. Their environ products are a must have to continue the maintenance. I give them a A plus.

Carolina Tess Balsbaugh

5 stars only because there’s no option for 10! Natalie is absolutely incredible! After moving to Boston, for the life of me (and a ton of research), I could not find a great esthetician–one that spends quality time with a client, uses top products, and is a true specialist in their field. Natalie has such a calming presence, knows EVERYTHING about the products and procedures she offers, and literally creates a refuge for the 2 hours during which she works her magic on you! And the magic is worth every penny! Thank goodness I found you, Natalie!!!

Liz Cal

Best facials of my life. I started seeing Natalie a few months before my wedding – both as a means to get my skin in glowing shape but also to de-stress. She has a magically calming presence while also educating you about your skin’s structure and how to treat it. I’ve had her do it all to me – from vitamin infusions to pulsing ultrasound treatments and even LED anti-aging skin therapy. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone!!! Best facial in Boston, hands down.

Jessica Maniatis

I began working with Natalie in early 2021 I was not feeling well and had recently been through a very stressful time- divorce, surgery and the death of the mother..She patiently and thoroughly explained what was going on in my body. She systematically educated me on making changes both with supplements, diet and stress management. She is so supportive and I began to see and feel the difference.As I continued my health journey- fast forward to the summer and the years of neglect culminated with a trip to the emergency room – I had gallbladder stones blocking the duct and this lead to further complications. They put in a stint and I fought to keep my gallbladder. Through my working with Natalie I had an understanding of how important your gallbladder is – digestion, thyroid, supports the liver and I wanted to try and kept it.With her guidance and following her recommendations I was able to lower my A1C in 6 weeks to normal range, reverse fatty liver and keep my gallbladder.The surgeon still checks in with me every 6 months and for 2 years afterwards they insisted I get an ultrasound to confirm I was ok.I will be forever grateful to work with her.

Ginny Miller

You need to make an appointment for the best facial ever. Unique Verve, in Back Bay Boston is aptly named. It is a rare gem among any skin care salon in Back Bay and beyond. Natalie Maibenko’s care and expertise has contributed to my skin looking radiant, clear, and balanced. I regularly book the Active Vitamin Facial with Natalie. My skin hasn’t looked this great since I was in my twenties and I am currently in my fifties. Don’t put off investing and maintaining healthier skin. Natalie is the best and the Environ Skin care line she uses is outstanding.

Karen Provanzano

Thanks to Natalie’s Functional Medicine program, I have finally resolved life long digestive issues, returned to a much healthier weight, and substantially improved my vitality. Any skepticism I had about what can be achieved through Functional Medicine was completely dispelled by the results I’ve realized with Natalie’s help. She is a supportive, encouraging, but firm health coach who expertly applies her comprehensive knowledge and understanding of Functional Medicine to an individual’s unique situation. I highly recommend Natalie and her Functional Medicine program to anyone trying to improve their digestive or overall health.

Unique Verve has been my go-to place for facials for years! Best facial you get in Boston
Patty Quispe

Unique Verve has been a Godsent for me and my family. I began taking supplements back in October of 2023 and have seen a world of difference in my skin, hair, energy levels, and overall feeling. I recommended them to my father who started a Functional Medicine comprehensive VIP treatment plan about two months ago. We have already seen a vast improvement in his overall health and have seen how knowledgeable Natalie is in all areas. We are confident we came to the right place.

I have been recommending Unique Verve to friends and family and will definitely continue to! Thank you Unique Verve!

Jacquelyn Kozowyk

In the 9 months I have been seeing Natalie, she has literally transformed my skin. She has helped me understand what products to use and how to properly care for my skin. She always makes me feel like she is truly invested. She is professional yet genuine and caring and the spa is beautiful and serene! Try Unique Verve once and you will never want to go anywhere else for facials!

Maru Rantoul

So relaxing! Always a wonderful facial.

Mary Kilroy

Natalie is warm, friendly, professional and extremely knowledgable about skin and skincare products/treatments/devices. I have very sensitive and dry skin and after my first facial I already noticed a huge difference. She has also helped my skin survive the Boston winter, which is often a huge challenge for me. I can honestly say that Unique Verve is the best facial spa I have ever been too – the facials are the perfect mix of relaxing (including a lot of massage) and effective medical grade treatments. Natalie takes such care when performing her facials and you leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated (both your skin and body). I could not recommend Natalie high enough 🙂

Kate Godfrey

Natalie had given me wonderful facials for years, but I am writing this review because she enabled me to experience a dramatic improvement in my overall health and sense of well-being through application of her functional medicine expertise. I had had a stressful year and attributed my palpitations, chronic waking up between 2-4 am, ongoing hot flashes (10 years after menopause), higher than desirable blood sugar, and periodic bouts of itchy skin — as well as the fact that I never seemed able to lose the 5-10 pounds I wanted to lose – to “getting older,” having stressful work, my mother passing away after a long period of decline, and other external factors. I had spoken about each issue to my doctors – and had had a complete cardiac evaluation – with the result being that I was told I really had nothing to worry about. So I was going along assuming that I should just accept the fact that – at 61 – I was going to have physical discomforts and not great sleep. I kept working out to stay relatively fit, but I felt as though I was never 100% healthy and energetic.After Natalie’s thorough, customized assessment I learned that my internal biochemistry was in disarray – I had a clinically high level of mercury (after a misguided sense that sushi was always healthy), genetic impairments that were preventing me from absorbing multiple key vitamins and minerals, elevated blood sugar due more to internal imbalances and overloads than to what I was eating, a very high sensitivity to gluten (despite not being allergic to it), and a liver that needed me not to rely on 1-2 glasses of wine each night to alleviate stress. Natalie developed a nutrition and supplement plan for me, explaining the science behind each recommendation and providing me with relevant research articles, and gave me many tips about how to make my life more healthy. After ten weeks, carefully following Natalie’s recommendations, I feel so much better it is hard to explain. I have very few palpitations and hot flashes, and my skin is no longer itchy. I wake up at night but always go back to sleep easily and never have arrhythmias or an accelerated heart rate at night. My transient dizziness is gone, I feel more inherently stable and grounded, and the weight fell off me without effort. I have not yet been retested but feel confident that my mercury level is no longer high.Natalie both inspires and teaches – without being judgmental or insensitive. She is phenomenal at this work, in part because she is clearly passionate about it. I feel certain that i will live a longer, healthier, happier life because of the guidance and support she has provided. I cannot thank Natalie enough, or recommend her more highly.

Jennifer Davis

I’m so happy I found Unique Verve a few years ago! Natalie is a great skincare specialist. Her facials and the products she recommended have transformed my skin. I keep getting compliments on how glowy and healthy my skin looks. I’ve also tried a detox program Natalie suggested, and I can’t recommend it enough. It helped with bloating, lack of energy and weight loss and made my whole body feel better.

Maria Palienko

I love going for facials by Natalie! My skin is so vibrant for 2 weeks after. Such a relaxing atmosphere. She takes the time to analyze your skin…and gives the best massages! She is extremely pleasant and professional. 10/10!

Emily Asselin

Natalie is incredible and is so knowledgeable in our practice. I have continued seeing Natalie because the facials are incredible, and my skin always leaves me feeling and looking better than before! I see clear improvements in my skin after every session. Natalie takes the time to listen to your needs and really dives deep into your health/skin concerns, which is not commonly seen in practitioners and difficult to come by! I highly recommend seeing Natalie if you want to see improvements in your skin and overall health, she also specializes in functional medicine and is extremely knowledgeable. She really takes the time with her clients and never rushes any treatment. Thank you Natalie for helping me feel and look better than ever. I can’t recommend her enough!

Vanessa Gonzales

Best facials in boston – period.

Lela

I started working with Natalie for functional medicine since January/February. For 2+ years I was dealing with severe gastrointestinal issues. I had many other symptoms I wanted to address, but my GI issues were the most impactful and detrimental to my daily life. I went to multiple doctors who simply were unhelpful. At one point I was told I have IBS and basically there was not much to do about it and I need to just manage my symptoms. I felt incredibly frustrated and refused to accept this as my new life going forward. When Natalie reached out about starting to work with clients for functional medicine, I was hesitant to venture outside of traditional medicine despite its disappointments. However, having known Natalie for years (I’ve been seeing her at least once a month for 4+ years for my facials), I know she puts an insane amount of effort and diligence into anything she pursues. I am so incredibly happy I decided to work with her to heal my body.

From day one of the functional medicine journey, Natalie truly listened and carefully assessed my entire medical history (which is pretty extensive). Doctors are faced with a combination of being overloaded with patients, trained to treat acute symptoms, and bombarded by paperwork from insurance companies. It felt strange to feel fully heard and I wish all healthcare experiences were what Natalie gives. It’s only been 4-5 months and I’m not “cured”, but my symptoms have vastly improved way beyond what I expected when I first started. I am no longer constantly uncomfortable and in pain. She not only helped my GI symptoms, but also my energy, brain fog, etc. I finally feel that my body and mind are returning to normal and it is a freeing experience of relief.

Healing your body with functional medicine is a team effort. It requires personal effort to change your own habits and lifestyle, but I couldn’t ask for a better teammate in guidance, knowledge, and support than Natalie.

Stephanie

I highly recommend Unique Verve — definitely the best facial I’ve gotten in Boston. Natalie is a awesome. Not only is she super sweet, but she’s very knowledgeable about what she does. My entire facial was really pleasant — I felt like I left Unique Verve not only really relaxed and pampered, but informed as to steps I can take on my own to improve my skin. Great experience overall.

Martha Carl

Natalie is simply the best and gives the best facial in Boston. She is so knowledgeable and leaves your skin glowing. Natalie takes time to really understand each person’s skin concerns and works with you to select the right products that actually improve your skin – without pushing products you don’t need. I cannot recommend her enough!!

Christine Karabin

I enjoy my facials at Unique Verve and visibly notice the difference after each session. Natalie not only consistently produce great results, but she is also lovely to spend time with, is very knowledgeable about skin and products, and is extremely customer-focused.
I highly recommend Unique Verve for anyone who wants to take care of their skin for now and well into the future. I wish I met Natalie years ago!

Lina M

Unique verve’s functional medicine program was a god send for me.
I initially started the program to manage gut issues, hypo-thyroidism, to correct the immune balance of my body and prepare for a healthy pregnancy.
The program did that and much more for me. I got pregnant a few weeks into the program and Natalie worked twice as hard to help me through it all.
With the new way of healthy life, nutrional balance and appropriate supplements, I have had a normal 8 months of pregnancy… void of heart burn, constipation and other gut related issues that moms have to endure.
I highly recommend this program.

Shilpi G.

I would 100% recommend Unique Verve! I see Natalie and she’s always very professional and friendly. Not to mention knowledgeable! She knows skin and skincare products. I’ve been seeing her for nearly two years and she really invests time in getting to know you and your skin. She’ll recommend what regimen to do (and which ones to not do), how to adjust your diet (because we are what we eat) for better results and take her time in answering any/all questions you may have for her. The space is always immaculate and I always feel welcomed when I walk in.

Naomi Ward

I had sufferend from recurrent UTIs for 20 years. They worsened after I had children. I started working with Natalie as my functional DR and for over 8 months I have been cured. I also understand what I need to do for better health and digestion. Natalie is totally focused, personal, and she will follow through. She will treat like family. I have finally learned how to holistically take care of myself.

Melissa Baldino

Unique Verve is absolutely wonderful. Natalie is so skilled at identifying skin needs and is just a lovely person. I’ve seen her for facials for years but took a break right for one year after having another baby. After my first visit back, I was reminded why I see Natalie. My skin was brighter, smoother and less red. Natalie is THE best!

Kara Brown

I approached Natalie for advice after two miscarriages, a fibroid surgery and being diagnosed with hypothyroidism at the age of 37. I am fairly health conscious and do what I can to eat healthy, work out and sleep well. However, some unexpected family related stress in the last 2 yrs, subconsciously had a severe impact on me emotionally and physically without me realizing it.

Natalie, unravelled my story and got right to some root causes for my health issues literally in one phone call. She had clearly spent hours on research. First, going through my medical history, lifestyle and family history. Second, drawing connections across the board to arrive at a root cause. She took the time to explain everything and backed it up with scientific publications.

I love Natalie’s approach and fully trust that my journey with her will lead to a better me. I will learn to prioritize health, tame stress and prepare my body for a lifetime of well being.

Shilpi G

I worked with Natalie as part of her functional medicine practice. Over a period of several weeks, Natalie helped me prepare for an intensive, long term course of anti-biotics which is known to create difficult side effects for most people undergoing treatment. Through diet changes and supplements, I have experienced no side effects from the antibiotics. I am really grateful for the work I did with Natalie!
