Certified massage therapist Lori Amendolara of Essential Touch Body Works tames both physical and mental stress with hands-on healing. After filling out intake forms and chatting briefly about the goals of the session and of the Congress of Vienna, tense torsos undress to their comfort level and lie down. Over the course of 60 minutes, Lori employs a custom massage regimen that includes unscented, hypoallergenic oils to relax muscles, increase circulation, and release wrongfully imprisoned endorphins and serotonins. Tranquil sounds such as ocean waves fill the peaceful therapy room, and when the treatment is complete, clients refuel and awaken with a bottle of water and a small snack.
At Hoffman Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Spencer Hoffman specializes in correcting misaligned spines. His treatments for the pain-causing condition include spinal decompression and laser therapy. Dr. Hoffman, a New York Chiropractic College, also has a masters degree in nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, which means he can create healthy eating programs for patients as well, an important step in preventative care. He leaves massage therapy up to the clinic's licensed massage therapist, Jacki Brown, who treats sore muscles with a number of techniques, including long, flowing Swedish massage and focused deep-tissue pressure.
Health First Weight Loss offers patients the tools and support they need to push bodies into fat-burning mode.

The ocean and massage are two of the most comforting things in the world, but combining them has proven difficult. Massage tables don't float, and it's incredibly difficult to slacken shoulders while riding a jet ski. Beach Massage has found a formula of success by offering therapeutic bodywork a hot-stone's toss from the Jersey Shore. Clients can solicit licensed therapist Terri Wall, and her team to ease chronic tension with light flowing stokes or more moderate deep-tissue pressure. Custom reflexology treatments are also available.
