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.
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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jesse Liebman is primarily concerned with pain relief and restoring overall health. He is certified in the use of the Kennedy Decompression Technique, a comprehensive form of spinal-decompression therapy that addresses bulging vertebrae. Dr. Liebman also studied with peripheral-neuropathy expert Dr. John P. Hayes Jr. and specializes in treating hands and feet that are experiencing numbness, tingling, or an inability to do the robot.
But Dr. Liebman believes that health and wellness is about more than just pain relief. He is certified in the Brimhall Wellness technique, a six-step holistic program that addresses the body's structural integrity as well as issues such as nutrition and heavy-metal toxicity. To enhance patients' confidence and well-being, Dr. Liebman and his team offer noninvasive LipoLaser body-contouring services and microcurrent facelifts. And the cozy, homelike office puts guests at ease during treatments—full-length murals cover the walls with depictions of beach scenes, golfing greens, and a colorful hot-air balloon.
Balance Health Center takes a holistic approach to wellness by offering chemical-free body treatments and classes that promote balance within the mind and body. The center's nontraditional healing approaches include acupuncture, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, treatments that all aim to heal the body without unnatural substances.
Spa services encompass waxing and seven-step facials, and bodies can acquire a bronze glow with the center's version of sunless tanning that relies on an organic, citrus-scented solution rather than the sun's hand-me-down rays. Relaxation's role in personal balance asserts itself in assorted scalp massages, hot-stone therapy, and aromatherapy as well as in spa massages that integrate essential oils. Helping guests to bring the center's philosophies home, Balance Health Center hosts classes and workshops on herbology, stretching, and yoga.
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.
