about Dr. Steve...

Dr. Steven Bacall is a lifelong New Jersey resident. He attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history with minors in both anatomy and philosophy. Dr. Steve was on his way to becoming a veterinarian when, after an encounter with traditional medicine for an “indeterminate viral infection” he realized there must be a better healthcare model available than just drugs and surgery. Through much research Dr. Steve learned of chiropractic care. He was immediately drawn to the concept of the body as a self-healing organism and after learning of chiropractic’s century-long track record of helping people regain their health through all natural means, he was hooked. In 1997 Dr. Steve graduated Life Chiropractic College in Atlanta, Ga. and after marrying his beautiful bride Kerri he began practice in 1998 and has been going ever since.

Additionally, he has earned post-graduate certification in whiplash injury diagnosis and treatment through the Spine Research Institute of San Diego, as well as certification in chiropractic utilization review through the New York Chiropractic College Centre for Postgraduate and Continuing Education. Dr. Steve prides himself on being a different kind of healthcare provider than you may be used to, and his goal is to help as many people as he can truly improve their health and their lives. Dr. Steve focuses on unlocking the body's self-healing potential through chiropractic adjustments and ensuring the body has the right support to achieve this goal through diet modification and nutritional supplementation.

about Kerri...

Kerri Bacall is a Registered Nurse in the state of New Jersey. In addition to co-owning and operating Springfield Holistic Wellness, she currently works as a nurse for the Cranford Board of Education as a High School Nurse. Through her work in the High School, she recognized the profound need to provide the students with tools to reduce the stresses under which today's society places them. In response to this obvious need, Kerri co-founded and directs the Mindfulness Program at Cranford High School and several schools in the surrounding area. Kerri puts her Mindful Schools training and nursing education to work teaching Mindfulness, Positive Thinking and Stress Reduction techniques to students and staff. It is her hope to bring mindfulness to many more schools and institutions. By doing so, she hopes to support individuals to become more mindful thereby decreasing their stress and anxiety and increase their focus, concentration, attention and emotional regulation and reach their full potential.

Mindfulness is not only what she does, but it is who she is. Teaching and practicing Mindfulness is a great honor and at the same time a great challenge to Kerri. "I am very much aware that there are times when I am the teacher and there are times when I am the student. This inner learning is always present and keeps me humble. I am acutely aware that you never really complete your education in mindfulness. It is a lifelong work in progress, which is my joyful obligation."

Kerri also is a Licensed Massage Therapist. She has completed training in Reiki/Energy work and has obtained the title of Reiki Master/Practitioner.

Before she decided to pursue a career as a health care provider, she was a full-time attorney in New York City. After moving to Springfield, New Jersey.

She also became involved in many community activities; serving on several not-for-profit boards, working as an emergency medical technician for the Springfield First Aid Squad, and volunteering as a La Leche League leader.

Her practical experience underscored the guiding philosophy that acupuncture, in conjunction with western medicines and other traditional modalities, enables the body to heal itself.
