Headaches, chronic pain, and low energy are no match for Dr. Ray Milazzo. A 30+ year veteran of chiropractic medicine, he has used advanced spinal correction and physical therapies to relieve these symptoms in adults and children at his Wychoff and Oradell offices throughout his career. But Dr. Milazzo aims to get to the root of any nervous system ailment, which is why he thoroughly analyzes the spine with posture and weight balance testing, and determines the client's range of motion. Additionally, on-site x-rays provide a deeper understanding of what is happening below the muscles so that Active Release and trigger point therapies can ease aches and pains caused by tight muscles. Dr. Milazzo also encourages a healthier state-of-being by providing patients with at-home corrective exercises and lifestyle advice as well as posting informative health blogs to his website.

The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
Exercisers lunge, leap, and lift around the gym, their feet supported by Parisi Fitness Centers' logo-emblazoned hardwood floor. It shines between mats in yoga class, blurs beneath the sliding platforms of Pilates reformers, and supports the stationary wheeling of spinning classes with stoic resignation. Finally, it gives way to plush carpeting in the strength-training area, where patrons blast their lats and abs, and personal trainers craft personalized regimens in one-on-one sessions.
Further accommodating guests, the gym's staffers walk the floor to dole out technique pointers, and provide childcare services while parents shed sweat. After an intense workout, they help guests replenish energy with a healthy beverage from their juice bar.
The dynamic instructors at each of the six centers teach a holistic approach to yoga and noncombative martial arts that targets flexibility, strength, breathing, and energy sensitivity.

Vibration sessions at the Body & Brain Center in Metuchen and Dahn Yoga in Closter and Oradell can release stagnant energy and recharge bodies to take on exhausting second jobs impersonating the Energizer bunny at birthday parties. Instructors monitor students' progress, suggesting home-workout plans tailored to personal strengths and vulnerability to fire.
