East Asian Medicine allows me to regard all of these parts as a whole, untangle less than optimal functioning, and help people feel their best on all levels. Appreciating the wonder of ourselves and assisting people in caring for themselves is such a pleasure.THE CORE PLACEClaudia Aarts-Schreiber178 Maplewood Avenue, Maplewood973-996-2063|thecoreplace.comWHY IM AN EXERCISE PROFESSIONALMy goal as a studio owner is to empower my clients to deepen their mind-body connection. By harnessing energy and focus into mindful movement, we help clients hone their body awareness to create inner strength both physically and mentally. After giving birth to my second child in 2020, I realized that postpartum recovery only grows harder and there is a need to help mamas in the process. Im excited that we now offer pre- and postnatal-specific classes at the studio.

Seeing their ecstatic faces again in medical school clinched my dream to practice ophthalmology. There is no greater feeling than helping people with their vision, such as through LASIK, cataract surgery, or even routine exams. Restoring sight is a privilege and I am thankful for the opportunity to make such a meaningful difference in my patients lives.why i care /31'
