Melissa Sonners

Living a happy, healthy life amidst the chaos of work, family, and kids.

Great to meet you!
I love to work hard, learn something new every day, and constantly step out of my comfort zone in the name of doing something I believe in.

Together, with my husband, we are raising three amazing kiddos and are committed to living our best lives by treating our bodies with respect. We insist on pushing our bodies and our minds hard, fueling them with mostly excellent things, creating the time for and making the investment in things that keep us healthy and make us even healthier as our bodies age and change. These are the principals that we pass along to our patients, our audience and our online community.

We are committed to always bringing our best and being fully present with our patients.  We are driven, we are passionate. We practice what we preach. We realize that change isn’t always easy and although we live super healthy lifestyles, we are also human and want you to see that too. We have treats, we skip workouts, we mess up and we get knocked down, but we always get back up again…and you can too.

Dr. Melissa Sonners, a Doctor of Chiropractic, is committed to inspiring others to take steps towards a healthier version of themselves whether it be through incorporating self-care, cleaner living or detoxification.

She is also one of only 52 professionals who earned her Diplomate in Chiropractic Pediatrics from the Academy of Family Practice in North America.

Drs.

Core Therapies also offers acupuncture, massage, infrared, sauna, spinal decompression, yoga and laser therapies. They are also the owners of NJ HBOT and HBOT USA.

The beautiful mess of a so-called perfect life can be a thrilling experience, but it requires us to put boundaries on ourselves in order to be our best selves. At times, choosing to live a healthy and natural life puts even more pressure on us to do it perfectly. I am all about sharing and showing my messy imperfection in the hopes that it reminds all of us to do the same.  When we free ourselves from the goal of perfection, we create a sense of freedom for ourselves and our families, allowing for greater happiness.
