As the heads of The Chiropractic & Physical Therapy Center of New Jersey, Doctors of Chiropractic Michael and Nicolas Chillemi and their staff provide massage therapy and acupuncture, in addition to the chiropractic care and physical therapy for which their business is named.

Serene Dreams uses isolation and float therapy to soothe the minds and bodies of clients, including a reporter from WPIX morning news. The treatments use some of the most modern isolation tanks available, each filled with a special salt water solution warmed to the exact temperature of the body or a perfectly cooked hot pocket, 98 degrees. The tanks completely shut out outside noise and distractions, allowing clients to float effortlessly and fully relax and quiet their minds. Aside from instilling a feeling of weightlessness, the flotation therapy can also bring relief to physical complaints such as migraines, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, and additional benefits include softened skin, better circulation, and an enhanced immune system. By inducing meditation-like low-frequency brainwaves, the treatments can also help improve sleep cycles, enhance creativity, and alleviate some symptoms of depression, among other psychological effects.

Pureology products help them wash and blow-dry strands into eye-catching arrays, such as the voluminous Bombshell or the Bohemian—breezy waves that wrap around a full-size acoustic guitar.
