When children are sick, their parents will do anything to heal them. That’s why, when her teenage daughter developed fibromyalgia, Sorina Durante decided to go back to school to find ways to improve her daughter's health. She attended 10 different programs across England, Canada, and the United States to learn the latest in laser therapy and relaxation techniques, which not only helped her relieve her daughter's pains but also led her to open Energy Balance Laser Therapy & Massage. There, Durante shares with her clients her expertise in red-light therapy, therapeutic massage, and Dr. Kaufman's pain-neutralization technique, the latter of which relieves chronic and acute pain using a light touch. Durante also offers anti-aging facials that use lasers to firm and clear the skin, as well as stress-relieving alternative therapies such as reiki and CranioSacral.
David Marron remembers a day when he was in middle school, kneeling atop a pew during Mass and clasping his hands together in prayer. His back, already strained at a young age from participating in a number of sports, sent pulses of pain to his knees. The pain overwhelmed him and he fainted, startling the Catholic-school peers around him. David's mother, concerned for the wellbeing of her son, decided to take him to a chiropractor. The treatments quickly helped to rebuild the strength in his body, and sparked young David's desire to pursue a career in chiropractic.
Since becoming a board-certified chiropractor in 1984, Doctor of Chiropractic David Marron has completed numerous post-graduate studies, garnered several certifications, and opened a center focused on treating ailments with a combination of holistic modalities. The team at Marron Wellness Center creates personalized healing plans for patients of all ages, whose aches and pains may meet their fate with any blend of techniques from chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and massage therapy.
The facility houses multiple treatment rooms, including three chiropractic rooms, two acupuncture rooms, and one decompression room, plus two separate waiting areas to ensure that all visitors can score a seat for themselves and their favorite cat figurine.
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.
Dr. Henry Roth draws upon knowledge gleaned during stints with the 1988 U.S. Olympic team. During his intensive period of training in Carnegie Hall, Dr. Roth honed manual-therapy techniques to treat repetitive overuse syndrome in the dancers and musicians of the classical stage. He brings this experience to his practice at Health in Hand Massage Therapy Center, where he calls upon an array of massage modalities to help muscles recover from slouching or taking shortcuts home through live hockey games. Among his many specialties, which includes treating acute sciatica, the doctor’s exclusive Rothstone technique employs Y-shaped stones to emit soothing warmth deep into the body’s structures. When not healing muscles of their many maladies, Dr. Roth trains up-and-coming therapists at the Red Bank Holistic Learning Center.
