Miami’s Casa Privée Integrates Science-Based Technologies for Brain and Body

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, heatless red light LED therapy, and more.

Brickell’s Casa Privée isn’t about massages and facials: This one-of-a-kind medical wellness center is far more scientific than that. Its enigmatic treatment rooms are lit up in brilliant color and dressed with inspiring, impressionistic portraits of movie stars (Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift). They offer the gentle buzz of the multisensory theta chamber (a spinning table delivering vestibular motion, binaural beats, cranial-electrotherapy stimulation and eye movement desensitization reprogramming) and a heatless red light LED therapy that’s effective for muscle repair and enhancing athletic performance. Those are just two of the many therapeutic options available. The most popular modality is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, renowned for its healing power, where the patient breathes 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber. (We normally only breathe 21% oxygen in our atmosphere.) “Everybody has a sense of needing to improve themselves,” says Dr. Bankole Johnson, the founder of Casa Privée, “and hyperbaric oxygen is one of the most powerful ways of doing that, because it reduces inflammation, improves wellness and increases longevity. Inflammation comes in many forms—wound injuries, metabolic disorders, cancers, neurological disorders, neuropsychiatric disorders—so almost everyone’s got something that hyperbaric oxygen can help them with.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
