The optometrists at Eye Contact Vision Center's two locations examine eyes for prescription changes and diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts during comprehensive exams, treat poor eye health, and permanently correct vision with lasers. Customers can select frames by brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gucci, and Ray-Ban, and if the glasses don't look as good as they did in the store or don't conceal a secret identity well enough, Eye Contact Vision Center will buy them back for up to one year.
Though he’s a licensed chiropractor, Dr. Vincent Saraceno doesn’t stop at the spine. The lead of Newark Pain and Rehab Center takes what he calls the “whole person approach” to medicine, covering any and all underlying causes of pain and prescribing treatments apt for an overall better quality of life. Clients can stop into his office—where staffers speak Spanish, Portuguese, and English—for an initial consultation, exam, and myriad treatments, including adjustments, physical therapy, and acupuncture.
The NASM-certified personal trainers at Gifted Bodies strive to improve lives, not just bodies. Driven by the belief that all clients have the potential to become gifted, trainers redefine clients' limitations and push them toward progressive goals with a mixture of firm motivation and compassion. During boot-camp classes and group sessions, which include kickboxing, Zumba, ab work, and yoga, they guide patrons of all backgrounds through invigorating routines.
They also visit homes for one-on-one appointments—as long as they have a 5'x5' space or a permit to punch through drywall, trainers can commence a custom exercise routine. To instill sustainable habits for healthier living, they place emphasis on nutrition as well as gym drills. Troy Samuels, Gifted Bodies' creator and nutritional counselor, likens one's diet to the fuel put into a car: the proper fuel allows the vehicle to hit maximum speed.
The Spine Institute of New Jersey's chief chiropractic neurologist and physician, Dr. David Harris, leads a multidisciplinary team of acupuncturists and massage therapists. With a range of treatments at his disposal, Dr. Harris aims to dispatch mental stress and physical pain through electrically stimulated acupuncture needles and chiropractic adjustments. Alternatively, massages provide gentle pressure that relaxes the tense tissues and caramel centers under the skin.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.

After the workout, members can hit the sauna and grab a smoothie at the juice bar before heading up to the rooftop tanning beds, where they can add a sun-kissed glow to newly bulging muscles.
