Just as an interstate can become congested with traffic, the flow of life-force energy can become backed up and suppress the body's natural immune response. That's where D.J. Kim comes in.

Doctors Michael and Andrew Grano, voted the favorite chiropractors in Sussex County in the 2010 New Jersey Herald Readers' Choice awards, relieve spinal and postural difficulties with chiropractic care aimed at preventing common sources of pain or illness. Consultations begin with a professional evaluation of the spine to detect irregularities or con artists masquerading as vertebrae, and a computerized orthotic scan reveals any postural problems caused by weight distribution on the feet. Digital spinal x-rays arm the skeletal therapists with a glossy map to chart treatment, which may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and massage. Patients can follow their treatment or schedule a separate appointment for a deep-tissue massage in the relaxing oasis room at the hands of Grano's experienced massage therapists. The specialist combats chronic tension with gradual strokes and deep pressure on a specific area that can leave some muscles sore and others jealous for attention. In addition, a physician will evaluate each individual's nutritional profile to point out dietary habits that can enhance their overall wellness, and present two tickets to a nutritional seminar.
The treatments at Women's Center for Holistic Healing rely only upon the healer's hands and exhaustive knowledge of the body. For instance, craniosacral therapy eases tension, pain, and disease with precise hands-on manipulations. Similarly, holistic chiropractic treatments begin with spinal adjustments, but they also carry into a client's home life. The chiropractor prescribes meal plans and exercise regimes to augment in-office healing. In addition, the center offers testing for food sensitivities and intolerances.
