Led by Dr. John P. Salerno, founder of the Salerno Center in New York City, we have a fabulous team comprised of highly trained medical professionals who genuinely care about our patients and believe in the power of complementary medicine.
Complementary medicine is different than alternative medicine. Complementary medicine is when a non-mainstream practice is used together with conventional medicine. Alternative Medicine, on the other hand, replaces conventional medicine.

AtlasPROfilax® is a safe one time vibropressure treatment that focuses on the short muscles of the neck that allow the atlas to move itself into it’s natural position without cracking or manipulation. The atlas is the first cervical vertebra which carries the skull. It’s influence on the CNS and brainstem function affect every aspect of human function. A malrotation of the atlas (which 99% of people have) leads to continuous pressure on arteries, blood vessels, cranial nerves, and spinal cord causing serious pain and discomfort.
Also, the adverse changes in posture can lead to disc degeneration, bulging, herniation, scoliosis, balance issues, leg length differences, and problems with the hips, knees, and feet. It also hinders blood, oxygen, and energy flow and interrupts neurotransmission. When the atlas is in place, it stimulates the body’s own healing response.
AtlasPROfilax, the path to good health.

Feet, toes, ankles, knees, hips, low back pain, all over back pain, neck pain, elbows, tennis elbow, bursitis, hands, wrists, fractures, carpel tunnel.
Natalie has treated many patients for pain over the last 7 years and out of the thousands treated with the shockwave (AKA the soundwave) there were only about 5 patients that did not receive full relief and they each had the most severe accidents and back surgery. I also treated thousands of patients that had back surgery and auto accidents and received full relief from pain.
Natalie is an exceptionally skilled massage therapist in the area of deep tissue, aromatherapy, reflexology, sports massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy helping many people recover from auto accident, injury from accidents or sports injuries. Natalie is known for her intuitive touch which guides her application of pressure for the ultimate massage experience.
Natalie is a certified SPECTRAVISION / BODY SCAN practitioner for the last 7 years. Natalie’s greatest talent and passion has been working with patients one on one, using the Spectravision /Total Body Analysis / Body Scan, which is a cutting edge technology, on each patient to uncover what is going on inside the body that only the Body Scan is able to detect through bioenergetic testing and then give a customized LASER ACUPUNCTURE treatment for the specific imbalances / stressors / sensitivities detected.
The spectravision body scan will tell a patient where there is weakness in the body, where the body is breaking down behind the scenes, before it is ever bad enough to show up in bloodwork. The goal is to know the enemy beforehand so the patient is given the opportunity to address the weakness or deficiency in the organ or system, ahead of time, so that it does not turn into a disorder, or disease years down the road.
The Spectravision body scan uses a computer- based instrument to measure the energy of the body, providing a highly accurate method for determining the energetic causes of allergies and ailments, by quickly and non- invasively providing important information about what’s going on inside of you. Your practioner has an immediate road map for supporting your body dramatically and efficiently.
Because of the importance of supporting the energy systems of the body by use of this balancing process, many of the energetic blocks to wellness can be determined. Such blocks may include stress responses to toxins such as pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, heavy metals, environmental allergies, food allergies, and emotional blocks that hinder overall health. Blocks may result from pathogens such as underlying or sub clinical: bacteria, parasites, fungus, yeast, molds, viruses.
The spectravision can also detect energetic insight to nerves, organs, glands, hormones and an energetic need for vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes. The Laser acupuncture treatment will help support your body’s own natural ability to detox the toxins from your body, and desensitize you to allergies, chemicals, toxins, cleanse the pathogens from your gut and lymphatic system, and strengthen, support and build weak organs and body systems. Through addressing the body’s toxic load and supporting detoxification and desensitization of allergy responses at a cellular level the body is able to dramatically release unwanted body fat with ease, which is complementary to Dr. Salerno’s weight loss program.
Over the last 7 years of consulting / scanning/ treating Pts with laser acupuncture Natalie has seen remarkable and dramatic improvement in patients dealing with autoimmune disorders, digestive imbalances from mild to severe, liver toxicity, fatty liver / MTHFR gene, leaky gut, systemic inflammation throughout the body, neurological disorders, parasitic and fungal overgrowth, unexplained rashes on the skin, patients striving to overcome cancer, hormonal imbalances, emotional stress/ trauma, nutritional deficiencies, allergies galore an many more imbalances!
The body scan and laser acupuncture are free of needles, painless, non- invasive and approved by the F.D.A.
The spectravision is a complementary support to the nutritional IV treatments and chelation offered at the Salerno Center. Also, the spectravision can give you insight to determine your need for heavy metal testing / detoxing through chelation or nutritional IV therapies.
Natalie is certified in Frequency Specific Microcurrent since 2013 and uses the Pulsar Pro to administer frequency specific microcurrent to patients. F.S.M. Is non -invasive, painless and approved by the F.D.A. Frequencies provide information to the cells, and increase the body’s ATP process / energy to heal and repair at a 1000 times faster than the body’s own natural healing process. The Wellness Protocol includes frequencies for: the immune system, liver support and detox, kidney function and detox support, lymphatic and blood stimulation for faster detoxification, chemical detox, energy essentials to normalize adrenal function, hormone essentials to normalize hormone function more easily. There are also frequencies for pathogens such as bacteria, fungus, molds, parasites, viruses, cancer and general autoimmune responses, Lymes Disease, shingles, weight loss, HPV, chrons, IBS, and frequencies for injury and surgeries.
The Spectravision scan/ Laser Acupuncture, Frequency Specific Microcurrent and Lymphatic Drainage all work together and provide a synergistic affect on the body to help support the body as a whole to heal itself and detoxify, and are complimentary to the treatments and modalities that Dr. Salerno provides in his office,
I look forward to meeting each of you and you will find....” I care about your health, as if it was my own”!
Almost all of my patients throughout the 7 years would tell me, “you know what I like about you? Why you are different? Because you care about my health as if it was your own body!!” As I heard this statement throughout the years, I decided to make it my slogan for my business, INTUITIVE HEALING.
Finally, Natalie will start at the Pacific College of Oriental medicine in Manhattan in January to become a doctor of Oriental medicine/acupuncturist.
Noemi is a European Osteopathic Manual Practitioner (non-physician), born and raised in Milan, Italy; she got the Diploma in Osteopathy released by the Istituto Superiore di Osteopatia and the Bachelor of Science in Osteopathy released by the Prifysgol CYMRU University of Wales in 2011.
In the following years he continued she education in diverse postgraduates programs around Europe.
Osteopathy is an established recognized system of healthcare which relies on manual contact for diagnosis and treatment. It respects the relationship of body, mind and spirit in health and disease; it lays emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body and the body's intrinsic tendency for selfhealing. Osteopathic treatment is viewed as a facilitative influence to encourage this self regulatory process. Pain and disability experienced by patients are viewed as resulting from a reciprocal relationship between the musculoskeletal and visceral components of a disease or strain.
It is a form of assistance focused on the health of the person rather than on the disease; makes use of a causal and non-symptomatic approach (often the cause of pain is located far from the painful area), looking for the functional alterations of the body that lead to signs and symptoms that can then lead to pains of various kinds.
The term "Osteopathy" was coined by its founder, the American surgeon Dr Andrew Taylor Still, who at the end of the nineteenth century discovered the relationship between the functional balance of the whole body structure and health. Dr Still, after years of study and experimentation, developed a new conception of the human body and another way to cure it.
- The human being is a dynamic unit of functions, whose state of health is determined by body, mind, and spirit.
- The body possesses mechanisms of self-regulation and self-healing.
- The structure and function are mutually inter-related.
- Rational therapy is based on the application of all three principles.
Applications of techniques for the release of tension in the muscles and improvement of the quality of movement in the joints. Apart from direct effect on the functions of the muscular-skeletal system, this approach also brings in biochemical effect, as it stimulates the correct exchange of fluids within the treated structures.
Techniques applied to the fascia - the connective tissue beneath the skin, that attaches to, connects, stabilizes, separates internal organs, muscles, and all the structures of the body. The continuous palpatory feedback is used to obtain a relaxation of myofascial tissues. These techniques act on the fascia to facilitate the healthy communication in the body to treat musculoskeletal disorders, pain and tension.
Techniques that restore mobility and motility of an organ. These techniques stimulate organs towards a correct digestive, absorption or expulsion function, both in mechanical and biochemical field.
These techniques work on the movement of congruence between the bones of the skull, nervous system, meningeal and cerebrospinal fluid levels. With these techniques, osteopathy works in particular on the vitality of the organism, a fundamental quality that allows living beings to react effectively to disturbing events from the external and internal environment.
