Dr. Emma Bruno
As an athlete, trainer, women’s health advocate & movement specialist, Dr. Bruno approaches each patient relationship with a vast background in bodywork and the desire to help patients further their wellness & athletic goals.
Prior to chiropractic school, Emma obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and worked as a NASM certified personal trainer & pilates instructor for many years- she felt connected to her clients and their stories but always knew there was another level of care she wanted to provide; after thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2016 and battling many injuries as a result of the training and the hike itself, she relied heavily on bodywork and realized that hands-on care was the missing link in her career.
During her clinical training, Emma treated pre and post operative patients at an outpatient neurosurgery clinic, provided care for underserved communities at a teaching hospital in the greater Buffalo area, and is currently in the process of receiving additional levels of certification as a Mat pilates instructor from the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. Since completing chiropractic school, she has been trained in Active Release Technique (ART), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM), Dry Needling for Orthopedic Rehab & Sport Performance, as well as Webster Technique for pre & postnatal patients.
Driven by a love of hiking, running & the gift of being healthy and active, Emma cares deeply about the right to thorough, compassionate healthcare that allows patients to live and move in a way that brings them joy. When not treating patients at WIMB, Emma can be found reading, running or checking off more summits as she pursues the completion of hiking all 48 of New Hampshire’s high peaks.

Allain brings half a decade of hands-on therapeutic experience after a career on the front lines of public health. He likes to say that massage kept findng and following him. Allain’s relationship to movement is that of a dancer’s, a child who’s natural ability was honed through some formal training before being released into the world sharing this expression of joy when appropriate (and sometimes “inappropriate”). Holding space to fully unplug from day-to-day stress is important to Allain because he believes that this regular work allows one to re-establish their connection to their best self. His work is heavily influenced by reverance for the human body’s ability to manage its own healing. His goal is to complement that intuintuve design.
A graduate of The Massage School in Boston’s South End neighborhood, he is well-versed in foundational Swedish and deep-tissue approaches to massage. Clients and guests describe his work in a variety of ways ranging from medical to spiritual. This comes from his passion of learning techniques and approaches from across disciplines with a keen ability to know which skills to flex and when. His therapeutic style commonly deploys deep tissue techniques that don’t always require the deepest levels pressure as to accommodate a wide range of clients and concerns. Ask Allain about how he might incorporate myofascial release, trigger point work, sports & Thai stretching into your next session.

Dr. Malik Mahmud
Dr. Malik Mahmud has been a competitive runner for over fifteen years and ran Track & Field and Cross Country for Butler University primarily focusing on middle-distance events. At Butler, he studied Psychology and Mandarin Chinese, a combination that would later contribute to his interest in East Asian Medicine and Philosophy. Post-collegiately he has continued to train towards his goals in the sport and maintain a healthy lifestyle of which exercise has been a major component. Running has been an outlet for Dr. Mahmud and has taught him many life lessons on hard work and dedication to his craft.
During his running career, Dr. Mahmud dealt with injuries and setbacks thus having to explore many different approaches to healing. Through this journey, he found Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine and it completely changed the way he approached running, injuries, and recovery. The holistic approach of East Asian Medicine provided him with a new perspective on athletics in general and motivated him to eventually focus his Doctorate work on the sport of Running and the use of East Asian Medicine to improve one’s running. Not only has this medicine provided extremely effective and practical ways to improve recovery and healing, but the philosophy around the medicine has brought Dr. Mahmud a deeper appreciation and reverence for the sport. Outside of running, Dr. Mahmud enjoys roller skating, disc golf, spending time with friends, learning new languages and exploring new places in nature.
In addition to treating pain associated with active musculoskeletal and sports-related injuries, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are wonderful ways to support one’s overall health picture inclduing digestion, sleep, headaches and mood (to name a few) with an overarching goal of bringing patients back to a place of balance and comfort in their bodies.
In addition to the study of Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine during Dr. Mahmud’s training in East Asian Medicine, he studied the practice of Shiatsu massage, a Japanese-based form of bodywork. This is a form of bodywork similar to acupressure in which the acupoints are stimulated with the hands, thumbs, and other parts of the body. As a runner, combining Acupuncture with massage has been an extremely effective method for Dr. Mahmud in his recovery and healing process from past injuries. With strong influence from his mentor, both a Shiatsu practitioner and Acupuncturist, Dr. Mahmud has developed a style of treatment involving massage and Acupuncture which have proven to work wonders in concert with each other. This treatment option can be found as Shiatsu Massage & Acupuncture in our scheduling system.
Dr. Mahmud earned his Doctorate degree in Acupuncture with a Specialization in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM). He is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine and is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
