The Spine Institute of New Jersey's chief chiropractic neurologist and physician, Dr. David Harris, leads a multidisciplinary team of acupuncturists and massage therapists. With a range of treatments at his disposal, Dr. Harris aims to dispatch mental stress and physical pain through electrically stimulated acupuncture needles and chiropractic adjustments. Alternatively, massages provide gentle pressure that relaxes the tense tissues and caramel centers under the skin.
You don't need an appointment to see a licensed physician, nurse, or x-ray technician at one of Doctors Express' New Jersey locations. You just have to show up. Beyond urgent visits, each clinic offers everything from routine vaccinations and physicals to more sophisticated care such as lab work and drug screenings. To help keep wait times reasonable, some of their clinics offer online check-ins rather than spending years trying to invent a machine that stops time.

Dr. Marc L. Epstein locates the lost faces of youth with the aid of modern FDA-approved beauty injections and a skilled, artful touch. Dysport slows down frantic facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses in a targeted attempt to smooth creases found in common wrinkle-squatting spots such as the forehead, between the brows, the space-time continuum, and around the eyes. The entire treatment takes about 15 minutes and results typically appear within a few days. Restylane plumps deflated lips, voids laugh lines, and eliminates under-eye sadness in about 30 minutes with a hyaluronic-acid-infused gel. The time-rewinding serum's handiwork may last six months or more, or about the amount of time it takes to dig a tunnel to Nova Scotia. The elegant medical office treats visitors' vehicles to free parking.
Patrons at Elements Massage pair up with the therapist best qualified to address specific personal issues and concerns. Therapists then spend time with clients, gathering information about their conditions before customizing massages. During the massage, the therapists intuitively blend a variety of modalities, such as deep tissue, Swedish, and trigger-point therapy.
Throughout the process, the therapist keeps communication going. The team uses a system by which clients can communicate the desired level of pressure; level 1 corresponds to long, light strokes over superficial muscles, and level 4 uses some force to root out embedded knots. Through this system, the therapist can get at all depths of tension while remaining well within the client’s comfort zone.
