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.

If you or anyone you know suffers from any psychological issues and/or could benefit from the services The Discovery Wellness Center offers, visit their website and see how to begin the journey towards a better, healthier you.

8fold Integrated Creative Works

Everyday is filled with endless opportunities and possibilities. There is always something new popping up in the world around us, and there is always another company opening its doors with the hope of a bountiful future.  8Fold Integrated Creative Works is that stepping-stone which leads those driven hopefuls down the right path towards triumph.

8fold is a Morristown, NJ-based, client-driven “8gency” that focuses on giving their clients the right tools to bring their branding and marketing to life. HipNJ’s Melisa LaTour sat down with Jennifer LoBianco, founder of 8fold, and discussed how her company has helped numerous New Jersey businesses achieve maximum results.

Jennifer expressed the three most important factors 8fold takes into consideration when working on a marketing campaign:  Knowing the customer/audience; identifying and understanding the competition; and measuring company traffic.  By arming themselves with this information, and integrating creative thinking and problem solving into their strategies, 8fold charters the most direct path to prosperity.

One of 8fold’s many success stories is Crossfit of Cranford, NJ (where this interview took place); they doubled in size in just a year and a half after coming on board with Jennifer and her partner, Brad Leszczynski.
