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.
During a discussion of sports-performance psychology on Fox 29 News, Todd Stofka, founder of Philly Hypnosis, paraphrased self-help pioneer Napoleon Hill in saying, "What you believe, you can achieve." This mantra captures the mission of Todd and his business partner and former protégé, Pat Donohue, as they use hypnotherapy's power of suggestion to help clients remodel their thoughts in the areas of sports, smoking, and eating. The pair of certified hypnotherapists conducts hypnosis using Todd's signature technique, the Stofka method, which combines his firsthand insight as a competitive athlete with neurolinguistic psychology and traditional hypnosis.
Reformers, Wunda Chairs, Cadillacs, and Ladder Barrels. While it might sound like a line from the classic novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it is in fact a list of the Pilates equipment within Chi Balance Center. Each bizarrely, wonderfully named device performs a different function, helping bodies to engage their core more deeply as they build muscle throughout. The staff offers far more than just Pilates, treating ears to the Latin rhythms of Zumba, spines to Chiropractic ministrations, and musculature to therapeutic massage.
Escape Body Works Boutique realizes that pain isn't just a problem for the person affected. It also touches those around them through displays of unhappiness and irritability. The center's team of massage therapists helps ease that pain—and perhaps mend personal relationships as a result—through four styles of tension-melting massage. Swedish and hot-stone modalities take a generalized approach that's ideal for creating full-body relaxation, while deep-tissue massage banishes more localized tension with focused, firm pressure. The therapists also specialize in pregnancy massage, which uses belly-safe positions to help ease back pain stemming from carrying a child or from using your belly to store gym equipment.
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.
Board-certified physician and member of the Pennsylvania Chiropractic Association, Dr. David Tucker helms a professional staff that addresses and assuages illness, injury, and pain. During each hour-long massage, clients consult with the on-site physician before therapists work up a finger sweat as they employ Swedish massage techniques to alleviate tension, promote relaxation, and ease injuries. Long, soft strokes soothe recalcitrant sinews and kneading motions release knots. Hands traipse rhythmically across muscles, stimulating tissue and releasing an electrical storm of signals throughout the body that can help heal damaged muscles, clear away toxins, and boost circulation. Clients may also feel their mood elevate as endorphins rush through their systems, inducing a sense of well-being and an overwhelming desire to rewind all their videotapes. Groupon customers may upgrade to deep-tissue massage at an additional cost ($25 per massage).
