At Integrative Chiropractic Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Sherin Bourne sees no reason to infiltrate the body's natural rhythms with drugs and surgery when her patients carry the ability to heal within their own bodies. She taps into the body's self-healing properties through the energy that courses through its nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments promote better brain-body communication, and laser therapy helps heal injured tissue without breaking the skin. As a certified hypnotherapist, Dr. Bourne also helps patients overcome emotional issues and addiction.
Licensed acupuncturist Amy Yip uses the ancient technique to treat such ailments as allergies, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome. The hair-thin needles also have the power to combat depression and patients’ addictions, such as smoking or drinking.
As founder and clinical director of Acupuncture Health Associates, Dr. Andy Rosenfarb leads a licensed, pain-punishing team of acupuncturists that helps patients overcome an array of troubling conditions. Fifteen years of acupuncture experience guide the doctor's sure hands as he inserts thin needles at key points on the body's energy meridians, dislodging blockages that disrupt the flow of qi, or energy, to vital organs. When energy flows freely, the body maintains a balanced state of wellness and allows the individual to lead an active lifestyle, with less time spent hobbled by health concerns and more time spent winning freestyle rap battles. Acupuncture has been shown to treat a wide range of conditions—Dr. Rosenfarb specializes in care for degenerative eye conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma, and coworker and licensed acupuncturist Vanessa M. Guinet specializes in women's health and reproductive issues.
Within the salt caves at Respira Salt Wellness Center are three salt rooms: one for children, and two for adults. In the children’s room, kids up to 10 years old play with toys like they're at a beach made of salt. Parents observe as children take in the salt-infused air, helping mitigate sinus inflammation, congestion, and allergies. In the adult rooms, clients sit back on recliners, listen to music, and relax as a dry mist of rich salt minerals helps clear the airways. In addition to salt therapy sessions, the center also offers other restorative services inside the salt rooms, including Swedish, deep tissue, and Thai massages, reiki treatments, and guided meditation. Their private yoga sessions combine slow stretches and deep breaths with modified poses such as downward-facing sugar cube. Respira Salt Wellness Center also sells Himalayan salt lamps and Dead Sea skin care products.
At Scotch Plains Pain & Rehabilitation, Doctor of Chiropractic Eric Chludzinski and his staff help clients suffering from pain return to normalcy with a wide range of physical therapy and chiropractic services.

Peony Wellness and Healing Center combines the best of Eastern and Western medical treatments to promote wellbeing. Each practitioner calls on at least three years of experience when restoring the body’s flow of energy, be it through precisely placed acupuncture needles or tuina—a form of massage therapy that helps improve circulation and eliminate toxins. In addition to these Eastern-influenced treatments, therapists call on classic deep-tissue or Swedish massages to abolish stress.
