For more than three decades, Dr. Frederick R. Santangelo and his staff have provided both relief and wellness care to patients throughout Morris County. As a young man, Dr. Santangelo would watch patients enter his father's office hunched over or in pain, then leave later without the same discomfort. He, like his brother, a fellow chiropractor, chose to follow in his father's footsteps, returning to New Jersey after completing his education to join the family chiropractic practice.
Dr. Santangelo uses a variety of techniques to help heal clients and has experience using VAX-D spinal decompression to help herniated lumbar disks. He also works with local medical doctors to treat auto-accident victims.

Behind the walls of a stately brick building, Shu-Chin Hwang helps restore bodies to prime working condition through acupuncture, a holistic healing practice backed by the World Health Organization and National Institute of Health. A facet of ancient Chinese medicine, acupuncture attributes ailments to blockages in the body's natural energy, also know as chi. Based on the client's personal malady, Hwang decisively inserts needles in critical healing areas, encouraging the body to cure itself without having to eat another Chicken Soup for the Soul book. Many of the programs at Acupuncture 4 Your Health are packaged to address specific health needs such as weight loss, smoking addiction, and insomnia, all of which use strategic acupuncture treatments and a special blend of Chinese herbs.
Formerly known as the Wellness & Tranquility Center, Shakir Whitehead of The eLements Spa was unsatisfied with the way people would shrug off pain as an unavoidable product of aging, especially when there were more probable triggers such as diet, stress, hair color, and lack of exercise. Drawing on this idea, and the deep appreciation of his friends and family for his incredible backrubs, he decided to become a licensed massage therapist. Now in the comfort of his own private studio, Shakir can alleviate chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes, or address lower-layer aches with deep-tissue or trigger point therapy. When not befriending muscles, Shakir befriends his community, volunteering his time for Whole Foods and Susan G. Komen charity events.
Doctor of Chiropractic Pat Selimo sees a connection between spinal health and overall wellness. He uses this connection to keep his patients feeling good, making manual adjustments that help the entire body function. Gently applying pressure to correct vertebral imbalances, he says, allows organs and glands to perform at their peak.
