Discovery Wellness Center

The human mind is the number one key tool to that greater and healthier lifestyle we all crave.  But for most of us living in New Jersey, our high-paced, busy schedules get in the way of achieving our goals.

At the Discovery Wellness Center of Morristown, New Jersey, their board of highly trained experts and therapists give their patients that extra push to harness the power of their minds.

HipNJ’s Gina Cerniglia spoke to the Discovery Wellness team at their  “Discover Wellness in 2014” event at the Westminster Hotel in Livingston.  Gina was able to speak with director, Christopher Barker, Ph.D., and observe other therapists in action.  Barker explained how their facility uses psychotherapy to help solve patient issues such as depression, eating disorders, behavioral problems, and more. They use an integrative approach, which channels the mind and body in order to achieve success on the pathway to better living. The goal is to “discover” how to use those tools needed to achieve happiness. We learn that there are major health benefits, both physical and emotional, that come from proper nutrition and meditation.
