Beyond her role as registered nurse, Susan Richter is also a certified digestive health specialist, nutrition counselor, and colon hydrotherapist. At Next Level Healing, each specialty plays a part in fixing digestive issues and other health problems.
When it comes to digestion, Susan's services begin with proper eating habits. She focuses specifically on integrating enzyme-rich whole food supplements which help to naturally re-balance biochemical reactions in the digestive tract. The next step is ridding the body of any lingering toxins, which Susan achieves by treating her clients with colon hydrotherapy or sessions in an infrared sauna, the latter of which can also help to control weight or ease muscle aches. Finally, Susan uses emotional direction to keep health issues from coming back?namely meditation, breath work, and stretching, among other holistic methods.
The practitioners behind Kula Yoga & Wellness chose Kula—the Sanskrit word for "community” and “family"—as the moniker for their studio. The choice reflects the yogis’ desire to cultivate a community at their center dedicated to the physical and spiritual well-being of others. The staff consists of certified yoga instructors and massage therapists, along with a meditation guide, life coach, and nutrition counselor. Each professional assists pupils and clients in improving their health, both physically and mentally.
Visitors to the center can explore floatation meditation, a unique sensory-deprivation experience that allows each client's mind to enter a wakeful dream state directed by Richard Linklater. The tanks are filled with 10 inches of water and 900 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt, which allow clients to remain buoyant while helping extract toxins from the body. In addition to their regular classes, Kula Yoga & Wellness also offers workshops and events featuring guided meditation experts and yoga with live music.

Voted one of New Jersey's premier chiropractic healers by NJTopDocs.com, Village Family Chiropractic founder and published author Doctor of Chiropractic James Fedich treats chronic spinal issues, as well as back, neck, and shoulder soreness.

Using soothing massage motions, each session gently kneads and maneuvers strained sinews to improve the function of bodily hinges without the use of greasy, joint-clogging pomade.
Doctors Michael and Andrew Grano, voted the favorite chiropractors in Sussex County in the 2010 New Jersey Herald Readers' Choice awards, relieve spinal and postural difficulties with chiropractic care aimed at preventing common sources of pain or illness. Consultations begin with a professional evaluation of the spine to detect irregularities or con artists masquerading as vertebrae, and a computerized orthotic scan reveals any postural problems caused by weight distribution on the feet. Digital spinal x-rays arm the skeletal therapists with a glossy map to chart treatment, which may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and massage. Patients can follow their treatment or schedule a separate appointment for a deep-tissue massage in the relaxing oasis room at the hands of Grano's experienced massage therapists. The specialist combats chronic tension with gradual strokes and deep pressure on a specific area that can leave some muscles sore and others jealous for attention. In addition, a physician will evaluate each individual's nutritional profile to point out dietary habits that can enhance their overall wellness, and present two tickets to a nutritional seminar.
