              DR. NICK GOES MOBILE---Literally!


     For the past several weeks I have devoted each Wednesday for making 'on-site' visits to patients at their homes and offices.  So far this new program has proved to be very successful and will continue on a regular basis covering Nassau, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Is.

     I will still see patients at the Brooklyn office on Wednesdays but by appointment only.  Since I'll be covering a lot of ground that day appointments should be made in advance.

     The establishment of this program is a result of continuous requests by patients old and new who either could not leave their home or jobs in time to get to my office, live too far or have disabilities preventing them to get the needed care.

     For the past 30 years as a chiropractor I have always made on-site calls to patients but this is the first time I will be doing this on a regular basis.

     This change does not affect office hours on any other day and on-site calls are still available in Manhattan and Long Island on Mondays and Fridays.

     The experience so far has shown that the on-site visits allow for a more rewarding experience for both doctor and patient:

1. more 'face' time allows for greater value and quality of care.

2. better doctor-patient relationship and therefore a higher level of service given.

3. the time spent is uninterrupted and the patient is in a more comfortable setting.

4. accessibiltiy and convenience; you do not have to leave your home or office; no worries about parking, weather, driving, commuting, waiting----NO HASSLES!

     I can visit you at your home, office, studio or health club.  All equipment is portable and just requires a small space to set up.  Fees may vary depending on location.  Discounts for 2 or more people at the same site.

     For an appointment or for further details please call the office at 718-680-8080 or send a text to 917-455-0495 or email:

     We believe a gradual approach is the best approach for one to build a solid foundation in order to maximize overall health and fitness potential.

     We like to call this approach Everlasting Fitness because it is a process in which we help our patients develop a lifestyle to achieve optimum health and continue that way for life!

      It is a methodical transition integrating flexibility, cardio and resistance exercises to change your body without experiencing injury.

     During this process, chiropractic adjustments are given on a regular basis to enhance your results, keep your spine flexible and improve the function of your nerve system.

     We will work with you and give you the necessary techniques to correct your posture, your gait and your breathing.

     Also the development of sound eating habits and nutritional guidelines are worked into the program to increase your energy and help control your weight. Stress reduction therapies such as   massage, hypnotherapy, Qigong and other workshops are also included in the program.

     See Programs page for more information.







As the summer months approach we instinctively take advantage of the warmer weather   and get out to participate in recreational activities and exercise more often. Many injuries occur at this time of year because the muscles are not yet conditioned to accommodate for the increased activity. So warm-ups and stretches, when done the right way and at the right time are necessary to prepare our bodies for the increased demand. The muscles need to become 'loose' enough to accommodate for the added stress to the joints.

      Warm-ups can include light cardio like walking or stationary bike at a moderate pace to elevate the heart rate. Dynamic stretches too like lunges, arm swings or jumping jacks.  This will raise your body temperature to prepare for more vigorous activity.  It reduces injury and muscle pulls, improves performance and efficiency and increases speed of movement. It also decreases post muscle soreness by increasing oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, eliminating waste products and helps lubrication of joints.

      Stretching following exercise or later on in the day will maintain flexibility, help correct posture and help prevent restrictions to your range of motion.

     Also, the need for chiropractic care becomes increasingly important at this time to help improve coordination and balance, extend range of motion, restore function, achieve greater mental focus, increase energy, help mobilize already injured joints especially in the spinal column and to prevent joint deterioration and muscle atrophy.

     We mourn the loss of a dear friend, father, grandfather, mentor, consultant, who was always available when needed and always brought happiness; Sallyann's dad, BERNARD AMATO; we celebrate his life and honor him in death; his spirit lives on in our hearts always. For your sympathy and prayers, we thank you all.










NUTRITIONAL  NOTE:     Omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty, cold water fish like salmon, sardines, herring, char, trout and nuts like walnuts, Brazil and pistachio have been shown to reduce the size of tumors and enhance the positive effects of some chemotherapy drugs.
     Omega-3 is a major component of brain gray matter and of the retina in most mammalian species and is considered essential for normal neurological and cellular developments. The researchers found that DHA (a component of Omega-3's) acts by reducing leukocytosis (white blood cell accumulation), systemic inflammation, and oxidative stress - all processes that have been linked with tumor growth.





     The Community of Bay Ridge is delighted that Dr. Nick will NOT be singing at the 3rd Ave. Summer Stroll this time. But you can CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE for upcoming engagements with the legendary nostalgic rock group, JUST US and Long Island pop band, HART & SOUL.

      Also, keep an eye out for outstanding performances with DR. NICK’S WIFE, exciting jazz vocalist,

NANCY VALENTINE, who also features distinguished jazz headliners in her shows.

Nancy Valentine is a straight-ahead jazz vocalist who weaves an emotional story with each song. She gets deeply intimate with the intent of the composer making the music a memorable experience to take home with you.........truly, a lovely, Lovesome Thing!!!!!

Nancy Valentine’s sumptuous voice is THE perfect garment for Billy Strayhorn’s melodies!
John di Martino composer, arranger, jazz pianist

Nancy Valentine sings Strayhorn with a depth of feeling which the music demands! She shades his melodies with multicolored blues and tells their stories with a subtle, lyrical honesty inviting you into the music. This is a special one!
Tamir Hendelman jazz pianist, arranger, composer, educator

Nancy Valentine is a consummate professional with a unique approach in her delivery of lyrics. She is also fun to work with and her singing encompasses perfection and warmth.
Jim Czak engineer – Nola Recording Studios, NYC

Nancy has a wonderful feeling and I love her voice. I think she sounds great!
Sheila Jordan jazz vocalist

Nancy has a vision of how a song is supposed to go and she makes it happen that comes out that way. The only other singer that does that is Annie Ross. No singer sings like that anymore. No singer sings like that today....perfectionist!
Warren Vache jazz cornetist, educator

It’s rare to meet such a combination of a voice this beautiful with a person behind it so disciplined yet passionate. Add to this, carefully selected sets of some of the best music ever written and you have Nancy Valentine and the gig you can’t miss. She’s the real thing!

As an expressive, tasteful and versatile jazz singer, Nancy has a very appealing voice that is quite haunting. She is a perfect match for the music of Billy Strayhorn. A memorable singer who is poised to make an important impact on the music scene.
Scott Yanow jazz commentator, writer, reviewer, editor




Nancy has the essence of a very accomplished musician. Her intuition, bona fide musicianship and tons of soul, skills most technically gifted musicians would trade in a minute for just an ounce of Nancy’s expression. What she has can’t be taught!
Bob Stoloff jazz vocalist, Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music, Mass.
