With meticulous attention to detail and current trends, Alexander Myles Salon & Spa's highly trained staff trims and styles locks amid floral accents and warm earth tones. Wielding hand-picked products from renowned brands such as L’Oreal Paris, the team clips strands to match each client's personality and schedule, whether it requires an easy wash-and-go style or allots five hours each day to testing the power of window fans. The stylists specialize in nourishing and trimming multiracial hair and gladly offer parents advice for beautifying their children’s manes during complimentary 15-minute sessions. While the stylists dance around their salon chairs to the music of clipping shears, therapists and technicians stationed in private treatment rooms enhance relaxation with aromatherapy massages, botanical facials, and waxing services.
From the tranquil tones of the flora-laden reception area to the dual waterfalls and simulated sky of the Meditation Room, Harmony Wellness Center strives first for client comfort. Licensed therapists and aestheticians demonstrate chivalry by ordering a detoxifying body wrap and a cleansing facial for clients mesmerized by the spa's a multifarious menu, which features soothing, organic ingredients like distilled essence of bliss and free-range lullabies. Free consultations help serenity smiths craft the perfect custom service packages for each patient's skin. Besides the ornate, expansive lounge and meditation quarters, Harmony Wellness Center maintains comfortable private treatment rooms to minimize the presence of sousaphones.
At New Life Spinal Care Centers, Dr. Jack Norsworthy works with each patient to relieve the painful effects of pressure on the bones and vertebrae. Using nonsurgical spinal-decompression techniques, Dr. Norsworthy customizes treatments to address issues such as carpal tunnel and lower-back pain—a common malady ever since Sir Isaac Newton invented gravity. To promote natural healing, Dr. Norsworthy partners with a certified massage therapist and offers rehabilitation services, such as electrical muscle stimulation and intersegmental traction on a specialized roller table, for auto-, work-, and sports-related injuries.
Gold-framed mirrors, Buddha statues, a spiral staircase, and purple accent walls lend an eclectic yet relaxed vibe to Skin Care Studio by kat, where aesthetician Kat Cabrera pampers her clients with signature services and products from A Natural Difference and shea butter/coconut creams and sugar scrubs made on-site with all-natural ingredients. In addition to classic spa treatments, such as facials, eyelash extensions, and waxing, she administers four types of chemical peels and dermaplaning—a treatment that uses a blade to oust unwanted hair and dead skin cells at the same time.
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 seven 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.
