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.
At Vineland Community Acupuncture, acupuncture treatments are performed in a group setting. Fully clothed patients gather in a relaxed environment as a licensed acupuncturist uses small, sterile needles in an attempt to unblock internal energies. Treatments can potentially assuage conditions such as headaches, allergies, stress, pain, and depression.
Inside an unassuming brick building, Ridgely Retreat takes its name seriously. The multifaceted spa, wellness center, and yoga studio offers mental escapes in the form of hot-stone massages and meditation classes as well as physical relief in the form of acupuncture and chiropractic services. The eclectic yoga offerings range from gentle and Vinyasa classes to yoga dance, wine-and-cheese yoga, children’s yoga, and the newly added aerial yoga. On the spa side, services such as glycolic peels and Fraxel laser resurfacing flaunt a modern edge, though the cherry-blossom facial, detox body wrap, and warm bamboo treatment let clients experience the kind of classic relaxation enjoyed by hedonistic pandas the world over.
Zenscape Spa’s signature treatment is a perfect reflection of their blend of Eastern and Western wellness techniques: the service integrates reflexology, Swedish massage, trigger-point therapy, and aromatherapy. Of course, practitioners can also focus in on any one of these techniques. Chinese acupressure is modeled after acupuncture, but swaps out needles for finger pressure in order to stimulate pressure points and help boost energy. Focused on the hands and feet, reflexology stimulates key pressure points to address such concerns as indigestion, fatigue, and separation anxiety from socks, and can be paired with an herbal foot sauna. Clients await their treatment in a room awash with warm magentas, bright green plants, and a literal invitation to "relax" scrawled on the main wall.
Ever since Brenda Novak decided to get permanent makeup a few years ago, she's loved knowing that she always looks her best. Her makeup is perfect, no matter if she's just crawled out of bed in the morning or just finished exercising. At Forever Beauty, LLC, she helps clients gain the same self-confidence with permanent makeup tailored to their features. Using skills honed at the Academy of Cosmetic Arts and Sciences, Brenda fills out brows, enhances eyes, and makes lips look fuller with natural, permanent color.
