Bodies looking to rekindle relationships with minds will find yoga, pilates, and meditation classes, while those with inner alkaline batteries to recharge can look to reiki treatments and Pranic healing sessions.

The studio also offers cleansing programs.
Though the list of health professionals that gather at Care Center of South Jersey is extensive, their mission is singular: to help clients attain total wellness. Their means, however, various significantly. As no client is the same, they work together to come up with custom treatment plans that can include the work of chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, naturopathic physicians, and acupuncturists to alleviate chronic pain or tend to injuries. Alternatively, exercise physiologists, athletic trainers, and nutritionists join forces to foster weight-loss goals or rehabilitate athletes during the off season.
Degrees in chemistry, holistic spirituality, and theology decorate massage therapist Jonathan Nidock?s walls, complementing his 20 years of experience while alluding to his dual commitment to therapeutic bodywork and spiritual nurturing.
Jonathan pairs this commitment with a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology to administer relaxing massages that call upon modalities such as myofascial release and neuromuscular therapy. Though each maintains a specific focus, Jonathan?s massages all work to stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation, dissipate tension, and curb chronic aches caused by wearing Kick Me signs made of concrete. Ideal for addressing uncertainties in the organs and nervous system, Jonathan?s holistic foot-reflexology treatments promote well-being through the application of thumb pressure to specific points on the feet, which are thought to correspond to various organs in the body.
After experiencing the effectiveness of acupuncture firsthand as patients, the clinic’s three practitioners, Erin, Jennifer, and Dennis, avidly sought master’s degrees at New York City's Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. During their studies, they found one another and bonded over their healing experiences with acupuncture. After school, they started up their own clinic as a place herbal treatments could complement acupuncture and regular infusions of light jazz as a complete wellness regimen. By inserting thin, sterilized, disposable needles, the doctors begin the healing process by targeting specific points in the body's energy channels. Acupuncture relieves a variety of physiological and mental symptoms, as does the herbal medicine it complements at the clinic. Treatments are preceded with an in-depth consultation addressing physical and emotional needs.
