Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that the body is controlled by a flow of energy, referred to as qi, and pronounced "chee." According to ancient texts, qi travels through pathways in your body called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that interruptions with energy flow in these meridians are responsible for modern ailments.
Acupuncture improves your body's functions and helps boost its self-healing processes through anatomic site stimulation - usually called acupuncture points. To stimulate acupuncture points, professionals typically insert fine, sterile needles you're your skin. Most patients feel little-to-no discomfort as the needles are applied. Typically, needles are left in the skin anywhere from five to 30 minutes. After their session, patients often report an incredible feeling of relaxation.
While some practitioners still adhere to traditional acupuncture philosophies, modern acupuncturists take an integrative approach. Today, professional acupuncturists use the therapy to stimulate the body's natural healing and pain-fighting processes. When coupled with personalized chiropractic care and physical therapy, patients can find real relief from painful physical conditions.
At Denville Medical, your licensed physical therapist's goal is to maximize your body's structure and increase its overall function for long-term health. To accomplish this, our physical therapists combine traditional and innovative techniques focused on increasing muscle strength and improving the body's range of motion. Our goal is to discover the root cause of your pain or mobility problems. That way, we can address the true reason why you need physical therapy, and work towards achieving long-lasting relief.
Of course, we understand that every patient is different. Your doctor can provide expert care in an encouraging environment by creating a customized treatment plan for you using modern, evidence-based research.
Professional acupuncture treatments can be incredibly helpful for patients suffering from a wide range of disorders. When paired with personalized chiropractic care and other medical treatments, acupuncture is even more effective.
With a systematic treatment plan, patients can find help for painful symptoms like:
Professionals practicing acupuncture in Lincoln Park, NJ, use several techniques to achieve overall patient wellbeing, from Cupping and Gua Sha to Needling and Facials.
Made popular by Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, most acupuncturists describe cupping as giving an inverse massage. Rather than using pressure to release tight muscles, acupuncture cups create a suction effect. The suction pulls on muscles and fascia to relieve tension and improve blood flow. Like a massage, cupping is very relaxing for patients. Most people describe it as enjoyable, although the suction cup markings may look painful to friends and family.
Acupuncture cups are made using various materials, including glass and plastic. Cupping applications also vary - some clinics go the traditional route with cotton balls, rubbing alcohol, and fire. Other applications include manual placement with silicone suction points. Usually, patients receive one of two cupping styles. The first uses stationary cups, which remain for about 10 minutes. The second uses moving cups, supplemented with massage oil to let the cups glide over painful areas.
Also called "dry needling," chiropractors and acupuncturists often use this technique to reduce trigger points within soft tissues and muscles. In this application, acupuncturists use a sterile needle and insert it into the trigger point, which fosters a feeling of "release" that helps reduce muscle tension and pain while boosting mobility.
Trigger points are hypersensitive, irritable skeletal muscle areas formed in rigid bands of muscle fiber. Trigger points lead to neuromuscular dysfunction and manifest in painful symptoms, increased stress, and lower overall functionality. During an acupuncture session, these needles are applied to trigger points, which cause a twitch, essentially releasing and restoring proper muscle function.
Gua Sha is the practice of using tools to scrape the skin and apply pressure to painful areas of the face and body. A Gua Sha is a flat, hard tool, usually made of stone. Recently, Gua Sha has taken the skincare world by storm, but the technique has been providing relief for centuries. It is one of the oldest forms of Chinese medicine used to boost blood circulation and energy flow.
In traditional Chinese, Gua means to press or stroke, while Sha refers to redness. Gua Sha usually causes small red spots or bruises to form, which are also called microtrauma spots. When using Gua Sha on microtrauma areas, your body elicits a response that can help break up tough scar tissue. When paired with professional chiropractic care, Gua Sha can be quite effective, even for moderate injuries.

NEWARK, NJ — The Lincoln Park restoration project is receiving an infusion of $3.55 million in funding from the $1.7 trillion federal spending bill approved last year.“I am personally grateful for Senators (Cory) Booker and (Bob) Menendez’s commitment to Newark’s ongoing revitalization and redevelopment, and to our shared vision of ensuring that the City’s long-time population will still have a place as change occurs,” said Newark Mayor Ras J.

NEWARK, NJ — The Lincoln Park restoration project is receiving an infusion of $3.55 million in funding from the $1.7 trillion federal spending bill approved last year.
“I am personally grateful for Senators (Cory) Booker and (Bob) Menendez’s commitment to Newark’s ongoing revitalization and redevelopment, and to our shared vision of ensuring that the City’s long-time population will still have a place as change occurs,” said Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka.
Booker and Menendez secured the funding for the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District, which is overseeing the much-needed facelift to Lincoln Park, a National Historic Register landmark that has served a wide array of the city’s residents for more than 300 years as one of Newark’s original colonial-era ‘Commons’ public gathering places – the South Commons – renamed as Lincoln Park to commemorate President Lincoln’s visit to the area in 1861.

The Lincoln Park Restoration Project is the transformational centerpiece of a five-year planned reemergence of the Lincoln Park Neighborhood as an artistic, energetic, healthy and empowered community.
“The park improvements will include infrastructure for arts, music and cultural programming and festivals; respite and seating areas; park restrooms and upkeep of green spaces for youth and families to play. The upgrades of Lincoln Park will also enable more diverse programming for the park which will enhance vending and other economic opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses," Anthony Smith, executive director of Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District.
“Thanks to their advocacy and support, the redevelopment of Lincoln Park will not only enhance the economic vitality of the city, but will also provide affordable housing, additional employment opportunities, and enhanced access to the arts for our residents," Baraka said.
Hundreds of community projects across New Jersey are being funded by this federal bill. "These vital projects will create jobs, stimulate economic activity, and keep New Jersey families healthy and safe," said Booker, who served as the 38th mayor of Newark from 2006 to 2013. "I am proud to have fought to ensure this funding was included and am grateful for the organizations, community leaders, and elected officials who are working tirelessly to advance these critical initiatives."

NEWARK, NJ, December 02, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) announces the official 20th Anniversary of the non-profit organization marking two decades of arts, culture, and community development. Upon the occasion of its platinum anniversary milestone, Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District will host its first-ever full in-person fundraising benefit awards dinner entitled The Lagniappe Experience: Dîner en Noir et Blanc (in Black & White) powered by Prudential Financial, a legacy anchor who has supported LPCCD since its inception.

At twenty years, LPCCD acknowledges its humble beginnings and Newark's past, but also its future crown jewel, the development of the historic South Park Calvary United Presbyterian Church into the "Lincoln Park Façade" project. The most recent architectural rendering was disclosed in The Positive Community magazine's annual Newark Issue and can be found here on page 56 https://thepositivecommunity.com/2022/10/25/october-nj-issue/.

"They've weathered many challenges with us from the ripple effect of 9/11 to the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007-2010 and more recently the global COVID-19 pandemic". Smith continues "Not just financially, but as a true partner, they've provided capacity building resources, professional development and currently hold a seat on our board. We're the little engine that can because of partners like Prudential Financial and are looking forward to the next twenty."
The Lagniappe Experience, which translates to "a little something special", is a fundraising event that will benefit the non-profit's capacity and work in Arts & Culture, Green Jobs Training, Community Engagement and serve to seed the 2023 Capital Campaign and help operationalize the Lincoln Park Façade facility once completed.

It’s been over a year since construction began on The View at Lincoln Park in Jersey City, which is a new dining, catering, and banquet hall. And good news is it’s almost done.

It’s been over a year since construction began on The View at Lincoln Park in Jersey City, which is a new dining, catering, and banquet hall. And good news is it’s almost done. Passersby at the circular park can observe for themselves the luxury building that’s to be completed by the end of the summer. Read on to learn more about The View at Lincoln Park, located at 670 West Side Avenue.
It all began in February 2021 when the Jersey City Planning Board approved the design of The View, located at 670 West Side Avenue. The following month, news circulated that Hudson County officials and Landmark Hospitality broke ground on The View — a three-story, 47-feet high building that will feature two banquet halls, a public restaurant, and a rooftop dining area. There will also be an outdoor patio and balconies on the second floor.

The first banquet hall will be 2,850 square feet, capping the capacity at 190 guests, and the second will be approximately 3,375 square feet and can accommodate up to 225 guests. The public restaurant will be 1,225 square feet and will be able to host 175 patrons.
The architect of the multi-million-dollar project (approximately $12M), Jeffrey Fleischer, previously stated that there will be two elevators, one of which will be a service elevator for the staff. A new parking lot will also be part of the expansion.
Prior to The View, the historic landmark, Casino In The Park, took over the space. It opened in 1950 and closed in 2017 before being demolished in April of 2020. Casino In The Park was a banquet hall that hosted political events, weddings, and fundraisers. Fun Fact: In 1963, Frank Sinatra celebrated his parents’ 50th wedding anniversary here.
Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise stated at the groundbreaking ceremony for The View: “Lincoln Park has long been a jewel for Jersey City, with its previous banquet hall hosting distinguished guests from Frank Sinatra to President Bill Clinton. Today marks a new chapter for the future of Lincoln Park and once again puts our community on the map as a place where lifelong memories will be created. We are excited to bring this special new venue to our community and look forward to this dining experience opening in the not so distant future.”
Angelo Del Russo, CEO of the contractor Del-Sano Contracting Corp., added, “The current renaissance in Jersey City will sustain and advance the history of the former Casino in the Park. We are grateful to serve as the General Contractor working with the Hudson County Improvement Authority and Landmark Hospitality on The View at Lincoln Park.”

While Hudson County Improvement Authority owns The View, Landmark Hospitality, which also owns Liberty House Restaurant, has reportedly signed a long-term lease to operate the new dining hall.
The View at Lincoln Park was last expected to be completed by September, but a sign on the construction site now, which includes ownership details, states the estimated completion date is August 2022. Anyone who frequently visits Lincoln Park has seen how much hard work has gone into the construction by workers hoping to complete it in the time period given of 12-14 months. Click here to see a rendering of the final look of the design.
Lincoln Park is a popular spot where locals go to take in some greenery. The massive 273.4 acres of space features a well-kempt water fountain with a picturesque statue, a lake to go fishing, track, tennis court, kids’ water park and playground, bike and running path, baseball fields, basketball courts, football fields, soccer fields, barbecue and picnic areas, and gazebos.
In the meantime, locals and visitors can check out West Side Community Alliance’s (WSCA) Farmers Market at the West Side Ave Lincoln Park entrance every Sunday from 9AM-2PM.
