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. The traditional hands-on treatments pair with more advanced technologies and techniques, such as cold laser therapy, which helps to treat carpal-tunnel syndrome, and pregnancy chiropractic care.
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.
Good communication between the customer and stylist leads to the most flattering haircuts, so the staff at Studio Irma Beauty Treatments keeps the conversation flowing by fluently speaking English, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Trims are just the beginning—the salon's coloring, conditioning, and texturizing services can work together to add depth and dimension to virtually any style without writing them into a thoughtful screenplay.

Each styling chair at Hilights Salon doubles as office space for the hairdressers, who start every session with a detailed consultation to make sure they understand the looks their clients desire. Once they have the right mental images, they clip and highlight hair, permanently straighten it, and craft locks into updos more intricate than a bird's nest made of Rubik's Cubes. The staff also includes a bridal specialist and two makeup artists who prep clients on location for their big day.
