Mecca Integrated Medical Center's compassionate staff understands how back and neck issues can cramp one's quality of life. The team of chiropractors and medical doctors performs nonsurgical methods of spinal decompression and physical rehabilitation to alleviate pain in the joints and muscles. Their holistic approach emphasizes preventative measures, correcting faulty body mechanics before a sneeze backfires and your shoulders catch on fire. The spa-style clinic, wrapped in creamy tones amid fresh fruit and flora, also executes aesthetic treatments such as facials and Botox injections.
Dr. Jeffrey Wise specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. Dr. Wise graduated from Yale College before attending med school at Cornell University and completing his residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated from Penn with the department’s highest award for research and innovation in his field, and he now teaches facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the New York University School of Medicine. When he’s not lecturing students, publishing medical articles, or fine-tuning his surgical skills on miniature dolls, Dr. Wise can be found at New Jersey Facial Plastic Surgery, repairing broken noses, pinning back protruding ears, and lifting eyelids and faces. He also subtly improves appearances with minimally invasive laser tattoo removal, facial peels, and Botox.

Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.
A licensed chiropractor and experienced martial artist, Dr. John Surie started practicing hot yoga when he met his future wife, Natalie. Charmed by her Australian accent and passion for the practice, he soon became an avid Bikram student himself, and in 2002, the husband-and-wife duo opened their first studio with Natalie helming her own curriculum of Bikram-inspired classes. Today, their hot-yoga empire has expanded to five studios sprinkled across the United States and Australia, each teeming with certified instructors who lead students through 13 different class styles. Designed to make hot yoga accessible to everyone, classes range from the studio’s signature Ignite series, which introduces newcomers to the foundations of hot yoga, to intense Shape classes that see stretchers melding hot-yoga and Pilates moves while solving Pythagorean equations.
Each studio comes equipped with special flooring tailored to the humid environment of hot yoga, as well as air-circulation and advanced heating systems to keep fresh, hot air blowing.
