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.

With a systematic treatment plan, patients can find help for painful symptoms like:
Professionals practicing acupuncture in Long Hill Township, 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.

CAMDEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New Jersey American Water today completed its acquisition of the sewer assets of the Township of Long Hill, N.J. for $12.7 million. This municipally owned sewer system serves approximately 2,800 customers, most of whom already receive water service from New Jersey American Water. The acquisition was approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities on May 20, 2020.
“As Long Hill’s water company for more than 110 years, we are delighted to now also be the sewer service provider for this community”Tweet this
“As Long Hill’s water company for more than 110 years, we are delighted to now also be the sewer service provider for this community,” said Cheryl Norton, president of New Jersey American Water. “We look forward to getting started in making the needed improvements so that the community’s sewer service is as safe, reliable and affordable as the water service we provide.”
The agreement to purchase the sewer system was approved by voters in Long Hill Township by a two-to-one margin in a referendum held in November 2019. As part of the acquisition agreement, New Jersey American Water committed to invest more than $13 million in critical sewer system improvements in the next five years. These improvements include pump station upgrades, sewer main lining and replacements to reduce the infiltration of stormwater, and treatment plant upgrades to reduce and ultimately eliminate the release of partially treated wastewater during heavy rain events. Additionally, the company will coordinate sewer and water pipeline replacements with the Township’s road paving schedule to minimize disruption.
“Selling the system to New Jersey American Water is the best solution for our town,” said Brendan Rae, Mayor, Long Hill Township. “The proceeds from the sale will eliminate our debt, freeing up over $1 million in our annual budget, but more importantly we expand upon the partnership we have with New Jersey American Water. Fixing our troubled sewer system is of critical importance to the Township and I’m confident New Jersey American Water will do just that in a responsible, cost-effective manner.”
Residents will receive additional information in the mail from New Jersey American Water in the coming weeks. A new webpage, Long Hill Sewer, has also been created on the company’s website at www.newjerseyamwater.com, under Customer Service and Billing. New Jersey American Water will also hire five, full-time employees to operate the sewer system.

The preliminary budget was presented to the public on Tuesday night showing the impacts to Warren, Watchung, and Long Hill residentsWARREN, NJ — Watchung Hills Regional Board of Education presented its proposed school budget for 2023-24 on Tuesday night which includes a tax increase for some sending town residents.The proposed budget of $46,649,203 for the 2023-24 school year is an increase of 4.49 percent over the 2022-23 budget which was roughly $44 million."It's important that everyone realize that this w...
WARREN, NJ — Watchung Hills Regional Board of Education presented its proposed school budget for 2023-24 on Tuesday night which includes a tax increase for some sending town residents.
The proposed budget of $46,649,203 for the 2023-24 school year is an increase of 4.49 percent over the 2022-23 budget which was roughly $44 million.
"It's important that everyone realize that this was a difficult budget. It seems we say that every year, but our number one priority continues to be the student. Continues to be the education of the student. Whether academic or non-academic," said Board Vice President Michael Birnberg. "Although we are very conscious of the budget and cost, we are as conscious, if not more, of making sure the students have the opportunity to succeed and thrive."
For an average homeowner in Warren Township with a home assessed at $824,594, they would see a tax increase of $38.47 per year.
For an average homeowner in Watchung Borough with a home assessed at $802,735, they would see a tax decrease of $20.55 per year.
For an average homeowner in Long Hill Township with a home assessed at $578,714, they would see a tax increase of $52.12 per year.
The Board pointed to a number of factors for the increase in the budget including inflation, a rise in healthcare of 8.74 percent, and salaries and benefits that account for 61 percent of the budget. The district is currently in negotiations for new contracts.
The budget includes a number of costs including:
To help lower the budget, the Board is taking $100,000 from its additional reserve to help pay for the track. Additionally, the late bus will be reduced from 5 days a week to 3 days on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. The number of late buses also is reduced from 5 buses to 3 buses. This will save the district $60,000.
The district also recently was awarded $5,777,532 in state aid this year. It is roughly $2.8 million more than the district received last year.
"The aid will go toward tax relief," said Board President Bob Morrison. "We are using that to ensure we are not going to have to raise additional taxpayer funds to fund the district. This Board from the outset was committed to doing everything that we could to bring that tax impact down because of the impact inflation is having on all of the families in our community."
The preliminary budget will now be submitted to the county office for approval. A public hearing and vote on the final budget is scheduled for April 25.

CHATHAM, NJ -- The Chatham Township Committee discussed the creation of a "Pocket Park" on Shunpike Avenue in the "overflow" parking lot closest to Long Hill Chapel at its regular meeting on Tuesday night.
Committee member Celeste Fondaco offered that the space could possibly be enhanced with landscaping and be used as a township gathering place with a Gazebo.
Committee member Mark Lois suggested that the Shunpike Trail created by BSA Troop 280 Scout Azniv Basralian that starts in the lot could be connected to the other trails in the area. Right now, the Shunpike Trail is separated from others by a brook and Lois said a bridge over the water could connect the trail to the other township trails nearby.

Lois also noted that the lot could be used as a commuter parking lot. He said that the township has already committed to a shuttle bus to the train station for residents of the affordable housing that will go up at 522 Southern Boulevard. Lois said that the Shunpike lot up for discussion is on the route to the Chatham Train Station and could easily be included in any shuttle service from the 522 Southern Boulevard site.
A shuttle bus could also alleviate the need for Chatham Township residents looking to obtain a parking space at the train station, which is prioritized for borough residents.
In other business, the committee took action on a number of resolutions:

NEW JERSEY — Tap water could taste and smell a bit different for millions of state residents in the coming months. New Jersey American Water will soon add chlorine to its supply as part of its annual-maintenance process.
The company will temporarily change its water-treatment process from a chloramine (combined) residual to free chlorine residual at several of its treatment plants. The process will begin the week of Feb. 20 and last through the end of April, impacting many customers throughout North and Central Jersey. (See exactly where below.)
During that time, some may notice a "slight taste and smell" of chlorine in their water, says New Jersey American Water, which serves about 2.8 million people in the state. Those who wish to reduce the taste of chlorine can place water in an uncovered glass container in the refrigerator overnight to dissipate chlorine faster.
"This periodic, scheduled change in disinfectant is a standard water treatment practice that allows us to continue to provide safe, high-quality water for our customers," said Laura Norkute, the company's director of water quality. "We perform this distribution system maintenance program every year as an added measure of disinfection in our distribution system."
Most customers won't notice a change, New Jersey American Water says. The smell and taste will return to normal once the utility completes its system maintenance.
New Jersey American Water has used chloramines in its water-treatment process since the 1970s. In 2012, the company began using the substance to treat water in its coastal system, which serves customers throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency accepts chloramine as an effective treatment to prevent the waterborne transmission of parasites. One in five Americans receives drinking water from systems that administer the process, according to New Jersey American Water.
But kidney-dialysis patients and fish owners should take extra precautions, the company says. As with chlorine, chloramine must be removed from water used in the dialysis process. Dialysis systems already pre-treat their source water to remove chlorine, but some modifications may be necessary to remove chloramines. Find more info here.
Low levels of both chlorine and chloramine are toxic to aquatic life and must be removed from water they'll use. Fish owners should contact their local pet-supply store for assistance and recommended products. See more info.
Chloramine is safe for dogs, cats and birds.
The temporary change will impact the following communities (those with an asterisk purchase water from New Jersey American Water):

CHERRY HILL, New Jersey (WPVI) -- A decade-long battle between a property owner and Cherry Hill Township may be coming to an end.
The legal fight involves a massive 18,000-square-foot partially built mansion that was torn down Thursday morning.
The Empire State building took a year to build. The Eiffel Tower took two years. And it took roughly seven years to build the Colosseum in Italy.
"My house will always be here. They're not going to tear down my property," Denise Williams told Action News in an exclusive interview last week.
Her mega-mansion on Winding Drive in Cherry Hill has been under construction for nearly 14 years, and it still wasn't done. There were still no windows, no exterior finish and no basic components.
"It will be over my dead body before I allow the township to tear my property down," she said.
Construction came to a standstill about a decade ago. The 60-year-old blames the real estate market crash around 2010, troubles with contractors and harassment from neighbors and township officials for her construction woes.
"At every turn, the township, instead of working with me, have hindered my efforts," she said.
Cherry Hill Township Attorney William Cook disagrees.
"There has been no effort by Ms. Williams to present us with the necessary documentation that we need to approve further construction for this property," he said.
Cook said the building was unsafe and an eyesore in this wealthy enclave. He said after construction halted in 2012 and Williams' permit extensions expired at the end of 2015, she failed to submit proper architectural and engineering reports and new construction permit applications to meet new building codes.
"We have been more than fair to Ms. Williams in allowing her for well over 10 years to provide us with the necessary approvals for her to complete construction," he added.
Williams gave Action News her response.
"OK, what I say to that is that is just a regurgitation of lies," said Williams.
The battle has played out in the courts. The township said Williams' attempts to prevent demolition ultimately were denied.
And on Thursday, the township ripped down the home, demolishing what Williams says was an estimated million dollars in building costs.
Williams arrived on the scene in the middle of the demolition. She had 24-7 security on site, which did little to prevent the teardown.
The township told Action News the demolition cost $149,000 and it plans to put a lien on the property.
Williams told Action News that although they tore down her home they haven't torn down her resolve. She plans to sue to try and recover her building costs which are now just rubble.
