Dr. Melissa Benenfeld doesn't believe that great health requires surgery and drugs. At South Jersey Chiropractic, the board-certified chiropractic physician uses minimally invasive means to help her clients get in the best shape of their lives. Her gentle treatments include everything from chiropractic adjustments and electro-muscle stimulation to traditional massage and physical therapy. And these treatments aren't just geared toward sore backs; they can also relieve seemingly unrelated ailments such as carpal tunnel syndrome and malfunctioning brain chips.
At Balance Health Center, balance is the central philosophy and comes into play through many of the center's services. During both private and group yoga classes, instructors teach students to hold asanas to strengthen their core muscles and tone their bodies. The ancient practice is also renown for helping harmonize the mind, body, and spirit through physical exercise and meditation, which helps practitioners with stress relief and balancing both physical and spiritual needs.
But the health center doesn't offers more than yoga to meet those goals. The team here takes a holistic approach in all their practices, whether they are offering workshops on Feng Shui or acupuncturists are administering their procedures to tackle issues such as insomnia or a crippling fear of acupuncture needles.
Dr. Jeremy Tremblay first discovered the powers of chiropractic in his 20s, when a several-month bout of excruciating back pain disappeared in only three visits to his local specialist. Ever since, Dr. Tremblay has devoted himself to chiropractic study, garnering a bevy of degrees that have culminated in his current tenure at Quest Chiropractic. An advocate of natural healthcare, the doctor bolsters his chiropractic exams and spine-straightening adjustments with a complete holistic regimen that includes nutritional counseling, massage therapy, corrective exercises, and role-playing games with the office's skeleton model.
In a partnership with the Physicians Weight Loss Center Northeast Philadelphia, Donna Skin Care?s staff attempts to restore natural beauty to weathered visages. Microdermabrasions and custom facials with ingredients including raspberry and peach or coconut papaya enzymes aim to exfoliate pores while sloughing away dead skin cells. This results in glowing skin with a minimized appearance of acne scarring, sun spots, and visible signs of aging such as fine lines or bifocals.
The crew of Advanced Spinal Care Center can take many approaches to ensuring backs are straight and free of pain—their job titles include board-certified medical physiatrist, doctor of chiropractic, exercise physiologist, and registered dietitian. They pool their skills to offer several modalities of massage, personal training, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and other treatments that can have beneficial effects beyond the spine.
An Advanced Proficiency Rated Activator doctor who specializes in natural pain management, Dr. Jeffrey Shusman has been de-kinkifying the backs of Philadelphians for nearly 25 years. Your session begins with a consultation to determine the nature and source of your body's bugaboos, after which Dr. Shusman will administer an Impulse iQ adjustment. During this adjustment, the Impulse iQ—a hand-held, computerized device 100 times faster than traditional chiropractic methods—lightly taps your back and feeds the data of each tap back into the device's microcomputer, which uses it to set the frequency of subsequent taps. Once the spine is in alignment, the Impulse iQ stops automatically. Relaxed muscles, soothed nerves, and internal organs spontaneously breaking out into song are common results of this gentle procedure.
