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.
Whether you’re a man, woman, child, or even a dog, Doctor of Chiropractic Christian Kaufman has your back. The chiropractor tailors treatments to each individual, specializing specifically in expectant mothers and children. He’s a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is certified in the Webster technique, which treats pregnant mothers whose babies are in a breech position.
Depending on the patient and his or her symptoms, he may prescribe corrective exercise, lifestyle advice, or massage therapy. Dr. Kaufman has also completed training in Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation, meaning he can prevent surgery on injured dogs, cats, and piggy banks.
Patients at Contour Chiropractic LLC, located inside Liquid Spa & Fitness, won’t find any needles or bottles of medication there. That’s because Contour’s doctors rely on the patient’s body to heal itself. They trigger self-healing features inside the body by aligning the nervous system—especially the spine—by stretching the muscles, and by employing cold-laser therapy and electrical muscle stimulation.
With training gained from every corner of the globe, Dr. Lawrence Petracco's team of specialists—which includes chiropractors, a physical therapist, and an acupuncture expert—take a preventative, whole-body approach to assuaging physical aches. In addition to examining spines and realigning rogue disks during basic chiropractic sessions, Dr. Petracco draws from his professorial expertise in manipulations under anesthesia, which uses advanced states of relaxation to achieve more thorough adjustment of muscles and connective tissues. The team boosts their patients' well-being from every angle, honing in on muscle pains with massage services and physical therapy while optimizing inner health by prescribing personalized exercises and diets in lifestyle and nutritional counseling sessions.
Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s David and Kim Yoo strive to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. Their hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. The doctors Yoo also employ moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
City Acupuncture’s master herbalists and acupuncturists—all of whom hold master's degrees in traditional Oriental medicine—calmly administer a range of holistic treatments.
During acupuncture sessions, the specialists invite clients to unwind on heated massage tables before lying down on fresh white linen treatment beds. With great care, the acupuncturists then begin to insert disposable needles along the limbs and torso in an effort to alleviate issues such as addictive behaviors, chronic pain, and needle-related phobias. The center’s staff also promotes whole-body well-being by administering nutritional and herbal consultations in addition to full-line of massage services.
