Drs. John Marullo and Ryan Varga work to eliminate pain and the need for surgery with their holistic healing services.

The clinic also treats clients to acupuncture sessions and outfits them with orthotics.
During his time as an athlete at Villanova University, Joseph Cilea, DC, saw firsthand the effects that focused training and dedicated care can have on the human body’s performance. One Doctorate of Chiropractic later, Dr. Cilea founded Advanced Wellness to bring crooked spines and health habits into alignment with an array of holistic services. Dr. Cilea mends musculoskeletal ailments ranging from arthritis to sport injuries with a three-phase treatment process, which focuses on initially reducing pain before stabilizing the weakened area and then strengthening surrounding muscles with exercises that simulate real-life movements, such as swinging a golf club or washing a spaceship. Advanced Wellness’s team of specialists also targets deeper health roadblocks with alternative treatments, including acupuncture, interventional pain management, and low-level laser therapy, and identifies potential allergies to more than 100 foods with the ALCAT testing system.
Multiple generations of the Dugo family serve as the chiropractors at Freehold Spine and Joint Care. Drs. Jack Sr., Jack Jr., and Robert Dugo, along with Dr. Staten, use chiropractic adjustments to help clients find relief from migraines, scoliosis, whiplash, and fibromyalgia. The practice also treats ailments with acupuncture treatments. For patients recovering from injuries related to exercise, accident, or trying to give themselves a spinal adjustment, Freehold provides physical therapy as well.
Peony Wellness and Healing Center combines the best of Eastern and Western medical treatments to promote wellbeing. Each practitioner calls on at least three years of experience when restoring the body’s flow of energy, be it through precisely placed acupuncture needles or tuina—a form of massage therapy that helps improve circulation and eliminate toxins. In addition to these Eastern-influenced treatments, therapists call on classic deep-tissue or Swedish massages to abolish stress.
Dr. Joe Mazzeo knows that many clients come to the chiropractor when they are in pain—neck aches, back pain, or headaches, typically—but it can also be a preventative measure to stave off future discomfort. At Active Care Wellness Center, he prescribes treatments including corrective exercises to strengthen connective tissue and nutritional counseling to convince patients that swallowing bricks won’t fortify the backbone.
One of Dr. Len Siskin’s first experiences in medicine was as a social worker in a hospital, where he was struck by how patients were forced to fight their way through a labyrinth of hospital administrators, attorneys, and pharmaceutical companies instead of just being able to focus on getting well. This experience—coupled with his desire to treat and prevent disease with minimal medication—led him to attend Life University Chiropractic School. Today, Dr. Siskin helps pained patients to resume the activities they enjoy through an array of adjusting techniques, such as the Thompson technique, which employs a terminal-point table to adjust the entire spine.
Additionally, Dr. Siskin helps spines to assume more competent relationships with gravity through the clinical biomechanics of good posture and sleeping on piles of physics homework.
