When Kimberly Schadewald won a gift certificate for a massage, she wasn’t just winning free relief from stress. She was winning relief from the chronic pain that had plagued her since a work injury when she was 16. It also led her to discover a calling to heal others in the same way. Before founding 5 Points Wellness LLC, she studied Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy at the Gentle Healing School of Massage before attending Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to study reiki. Equipped with this knowledge and experience, Schadewald helps clients alternatively manage and prevent pain through massage services with amenities such as a heated cherry stone pillow that eases areas of deep tension. She also works with children over the age of 6 to eradicate the daily stress of growing older, going to school, and cat fighting with imaginary friends.
Licensed massage therapist Kristen Lamb studied an array of bodywork techniques at the Institute for Therapeutic Massage, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, reflexology, and myofascial release. Unsurprisingly, she offers those same techniques as well as relaxing add-ons such as aromatherapy and salt scrubs at her massage studio. Benefits of the services can include everything from reduced anxiety to increased circulation of fun cells.
The staff at Holistic Reflections, LLC really listen to their clients.

The massage therapists are also well versed in oncology massages that offer respite from side effects of cancer treatments.
David Marron remembers a day when he was in middle school, kneeling atop a pew during Mass and clasping his hands together in prayer. His back, already strained at a young age from participating in a number of sports, sent pulses of pain to his knees. The pain overwhelmed him and he fainted, startling the Catholic-school peers around him. David's mother, concerned for the wellbeing of her son, decided to take him to a chiropractor. The treatments quickly helped to rebuild the strength in his body, and sparked young David's desire to pursue a career in chiropractic.
Since becoming a board-certified chiropractor in 1984, Doctor of Chiropractic David Marron has completed numerous post-graduate studies, garnered several certifications, and opened a center focused on treating ailments with a combination of holistic modalities. The team at Marron Wellness Center creates personalized healing plans for patients of all ages, whose aches and pains may meet their fate with any blend of techniques from chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and massage therapy.
The facility houses multiple treatment rooms, including three chiropractic rooms, two acupuncture rooms, and one decompression room, plus two separate waiting areas to ensure that all visitors can score a seat for themselves and their favorite cat figurine.
Physical therapy, pain management, and chiropractic care are the three primary disciplines of the practice, which aims to construct strong relationships between clinicians and patients. Staff members also work to find similar connections between the systems of the body, which functions best when all of its components work in harmony. By doing this, they relieve chronic pain and guide bodies toward wellness without prescription drugs. The team counts a family doctor and an internal physician among its ranks, which include physical therapists, chiropractors, and a pain-management expert, which is also what some sports fans call their favorite team?s coach. Their areas of expertise extend to acupuncture, massage therapy, and stress management, all part of a comprehensive roster of treatments to usher holistic relief and health into achy frames.
