Certified acupuncturist and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practitioner Adriane Dourte wields drug-free techniques to vanquish pain and alleviate a range of health complaints. A Philadelphia native, Adriane received her masters in TCM before deepening her knowledge through an externship at Zhejiang College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Hangzhou, China. There, she received hands-on training with doctors at TCM hospitals, as well as lectures from top professionals in the field.
Adriane's treatments employ TCM techniques from acupuncture with sterile, disposable needles to moxibustion, during which a carefully selected blend of herbs burns on or close to the skin. Using knowledge of each patient's medical history, she can customize sessions to address a range of conditions as diabetes, anxiety, or neck pain from watching out for falling asteroids.
Precision Health & Wellness Center's experienced massage therapists offer a trio of massage modalities to eliminate stress and tension. Clients can reduce torso-trapped stress during a one-hour Swedish massage, which employs gentle strokes and firm kneading to intimidate knot bullies into leaving town. Deep-tissue massage utilizes targeted pressure and power movements to trigger a tendon chain reaction of relaxation that may also relieve chronic pain. Physical laborers, sportsmen, and veteran soccer balls can eliminate the aches of athletic competition with a sports massage, a treatment that soothes overworked muscles to enhance performance. Customers can treat their back muscles to a therapeutic session during Precision Health & Wellness Center's office hours on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Dr. Kam Tareen trained in acupuncture at what might be an unexpected place: Harvard Medical School. The course he took there united ancient medicinal practices with Western ones, helping him to practice both. At Advanced Physician Acupuncture, though, he focuses on the former. His treatments include Japanese acupuncture, ear acupuncture for bodywide pain control, massage therapy, and nonsurgical Face-Lifts, which rely on acupuncture needles to stoke the face's production of collagen.
Doctor of Chiropractic Stacy Cohen founded First State Health & Wellness shortly after he received his degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984. Since then, his center has expanded to six locations and welcomed aboard 12 other chiropractic physicians.
Each location features traditional adjustment techniques and Activator tools that rapidly and gently prod trouble spots. A few locations feature specialty techniques such as the Newark location's high-tech subluxation scanning and the Wilmington location's adjustable Thompson Terminal Point table made up of several different cushions that help it morph into an even more therapeutic surface: a ping-pong table.
Dr. Cohen and his staff complement their chiropractic touch with acupuncture, massage, and nutritional counseling services, which are overseen by the center's own licensed acupuncturists and certified massage therapists. Together, the team's collective efforts have been awarded The News Journal's Reader's Choice Award for Best Chiropractic Office in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2003 and 2009.
