Affiliated with the American Naturopathic Medical Association and the American Alternative Medical Association, Wojciech Konior, ND, TNC, launched Natural Medicine Center to help those interested in pharmaceutical-free healing. Believing that all illness results from imbalances within the body, Dr. Konior performs alternative diagnostics, such as hair-tissue-mineral analysis and timing how long it takes patients to build a ship in a bottle, to identify the source of maladies. Recommended care may integrate a range of treatment approaches, ranging from dietary changes and supplements to exercise and detoxification therapy. Dr. Konior can also help arrange care with a network of other practitioners, such as massage therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists. To further support clients' lifestyles, Natural Medicine Center houses a store filled with health products, including herbs, vitamins, and minerals, as well as natural and organic items for the home, hygiene, and homes that refuse to bathe.
Tension and stress melt away at International Steam Baths, where guests lounge within the steamy chambers of a Russian steam room, relax inside an infrared sauna, or high-dive into a cold plunge pool. Inside private treatment rooms, spa-goers receive more than five types of massages or a body wrap blended from black mud and seaweed. Guests can also get a breath of fresh air on the outdoor deck or visit the restaurant, where bright orange walls surround tablecloths covered in strawberry designs.
Nationally and state certified massage therapist Kristine Pilsbury draws on more than six years of massage experience and an education in natural healing to help clients achieve physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. She works in a studio located within The Advanced Center for Spine Care in Saddle Brook. There, she tailors treatments to each individual's needs, blending modalities such as neuromuscular massage and Swedish massage, while focusing on balancing energy.
In 2005, Sandra Gutierrez was stressed and overworked. She found relaxation at a spa, but not in the way you'd think. Sandra discovered that helping others feel better also made her feel better, so she started a new career as a licensed massage therapist.
That career has since blossomed, and Sandra now kneads muscles daily at Euphoria Massage & Spa. Along with five other therapists—all of whom she personally trains—Sandra eases tension with Swedish strokes and relieves aching necks, backs, and shoulders with trigger-point techniques. While Sandra and her team focus on relaxing muscles, Euphoria's resident aesthetician cleanses and detoxifies skin with clay body wraps and sea-salt scrubs. Treatment sessions unfold inside spacious rooms, where soft piano music drowns out the sound of your boss banging on the spa's window, asking for that TPS report.

Tres Jolie's techs also swaddle clients with body wraps and tenderize tissues with an array of massage modalities, including hot stone, reflexology, lymphatic drainage, and shiatsu.
When they’re not helping adults retain their youthful glow, staff members let little ones feel grown up with kids' spa parties. These scaled-down, relaxing get-togethers are enchanted by princess and fairy themes, pink limos, and four-tier chocolate fountains that refuse to trade pennies for wishes.
The staff members at Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center perform an array of services to care for the bones, nerves, muscles, and connective tissues that make up the body.
