Chiropractor Rockaway NJ Jason Abaza Meet The Team

Chiropractor, Owner

Jason Abaza D.C.

Dr. Jason Abaza was born and raised in East Hanover, New Jersey. His father was a well-known coach within the East Hanover soccer program, so naturally, under his fathers tutelage, Dr. Jason gravitated towards the sport which inspired one of the many of the quality traits that make up the man he is today - leadership.

Dr. Jason graduated with Honors from Hanover Park High School in 2010 and was awarded a scholarship for leadership which afforded him an opportunity to pursue a doctorate degree from Life University in Marietta, Georgia which is world-renowned for its chiropractic program. Life University is also where he would eventually meet his best friend and fiancée, Dr. Marissa.

In 2017, Dr. Jason graduated with his doctorate in chiropractic and moved back home to East Hanover with a burning desire to serve families in New Jersey with an all-natural, drug-free approach centered on neurologically-based chiropractic care.

"A leader isn't always the one to get the credit or even be given the title of leader. A leader is someone who stands behind the pack and is able to inspire others while sacrificing his/her own wants for the greater good of others."

- Dr. Jason Abaza

Marissa Abaza D.C.

Dr. Marissa has always had a passion for serving others. Before chiropractic she was a professional salsa dancer. While she loved performing on stage and social dancing, she was particularly drawn to instructing. Not only did she experience tremendous personal healing through dance, she also found she could also help individuals heal and improve their quality of life.

Dr. Marissa was eventually introduced to the philosophy and vitalistic lifestyle of chiropractic, and from that moment on she realized she could help people on a much grander scale. With fervor, she embraced this newfound passion for chiropractic, said farewell to her family and friends in San Diego, and moved across the country to pursue her doctorate at the world’s most renowned chiropractic college, Life University in Marietta, Georgia.

Dr. Marissa completed her senior research presentation at Life University on the subject of breastfeeding difficulties and chiropractic. This spawned another passion for her – perinatal care and pediatrics. Soon thereafter she became a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and received advanced certification in Webster Technique. Dr. Marissa is now currently pursuing the ICPA Certification program to expand her expertise in adjusting techniques, evaluation, and assessment of different stages of development – from pregnancy, birth, and infancy to childhood.

Dr. Marissa was born and raised in San Diego, CA. While she never imagined leaving this gorgeous city permanently, she met Dr. Jason while attending Life University. They were drawn to each other early in the doctorate program, and neither could deny their incredible dynamic, personally and professionally. Months before their graduation, Dr. Jason proposed marriage and Dr. Marissa gladly accepted. The two then embarked on opening their dream practice together near Dr. Jason’s hometown of East Hanover.
