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.

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 Rockaway Borough, 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.

The latest update for the Best Outdoor Ice Skating Rinks & Ponds is written by Lindsay Podolak.

ROCKAWAY BOROUGH — Years of planning and $2 million later, borough officials are celebrating the completion of the Parks Lake project.
The lake, also known as Fox Pond, is used by residents of Rockaway Borough and Rockway Township, but the renovations were completed only on the borough side, as the municipalities didn't see eye to eye on how to pay for the dredging portion of the project, the removal of sediment and debris from the bottom of the lake
"For the past seven years we've been trying to sock away money for this project," said borough Mayor Tom Mulligan. "At this time, Rockaway Township had other prioritization, so they didn't participate in the dredging of the lake."
Borough officials closed out the project last Friday with an estimated cost of $2 million. Work included replacement of the dam, dredging the Rockaway Borough side of the lake and extending the beach area. The walking path by the dam and the beach was also repaved.
Rockaway Township Mayor Mike Puzio said they expect renovations and improvements on their side of the lake to happen by next year. They are currently drafting up plans with township engineers.
" I had to make some tough choices in terms of what the residents were going to get the most use out of," Puzio said. "We are planning on doing our section [of Park Lake], our gazebo side and improving the landscape."
Residents in the area use Parks Lake for swimming and fishing, and it includes a 0.7-mile walkway around the lake. More than 10 years ago, the state's Department of Environmental Protection informed the municipality that the dam needed to be replaced, Mulligan said.
"So we've had over 10 years of planning, reengineering, property acquisition," Mulligan added. "We were putting money in our budget every year to cover, pretty much, the cost of this project."

The Rockaway Township side of the lake includes a gazebo and needs renovations, according to the DEP. In February 2020, borough officials asked the neighboring township to financially contribute to the dredging. Township officials told them they had other financial priorities, officials said.
"We were hoping to have the opportunity to dredge with them, since we had all the permits in place," Mulligan said.
DEP permits were obtained and they were “a considerable expense” for the borough. The permit to lower the lake's water was valid between Aug. 31 and Sept. 31.
The two municipalities split costs for other shared services, including garbage and snow removal and portable toilet rentals for the lake. Officials from both municipalities have been meeting since 2018 to discuss the project. The renovation portion of the project lasted almost a year. Mulligan said there was a lot of frustration from residents and households along the area who were not able to use it.
"But since we're done, they're all smiles," Mulligan added.
With the Parks Lake project completed, the borough will focus on residential and business construction, including a 72-unit senior housing project on West Main Street.

Sussex County hired an interim administrator to replace Gregory Poff, who left to take the administrator job in Randolph.
The Board of County Commissioners hired John Lovell on a 90-day term. He was hired through an agreement with Jersey Professional Management which is being paid $42,600 for the period from May 24 to Aug. 31.
A replacement for Poff was on the meeting agenda, but was with a company called Government Management Advisors with a price of $40,500 and a time period of May 17 to Aug. 12.
Director Anthony Fasano gave no reason for the change when he announced the resolution was being amended.
Lovell was hired by the county during the COVID pandemic to serve as temporary director of the health department.
In a touch of irony, Lovell retired as Randolph administrator in 2014 and became a senior member of Jersey Professional Management.
Poff will start his new position on July 1 and replaces Stephen Mountain, who is retiring June 30 after an eight-year tenure in the township.

"It is an honor to serve as the next Randolph township manager," Poff said in a statement on Randolph's website. "The township’s embrace of professional government management makes this one of the best local government jobs in the state. My experience as both a municipal manager and county administrator has prepared me for the challenges of this assignment."
While Poff's start date is still two months away, he will be working with Mountain in the coming weeks to get acclimated to his new position.
The new role marks a homecoming of sorts for Poff, who served as Randolph's assistant township manager from 1999 to 2004. He then served as township manager in Byram until 2007, when he became business administrator in Rockaway Township for the next decade.
Poff was named Sussex County administrator in April 2017 and received a five-year contract extension from the county commissioners in December 2020.
