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.
Red lanterns shower the Kaya Wellness Center in warm light, and dark wood shelves of colorful yoga mats and vases filled with peacock feathers and orchids carve out a serene space for yoga classes and workshops throughout the week. Atop the studio's hardwood floors, certified yoga instructors lead group classes and private training sessions in a diverse range of traditions, including prenatal yoga, men's yoga, and aerial yoga, a low-flying variation of Hatha that suspends yogis from hammocks. During the summer, instructors lead classes on the scenic shores of local beaches to give the sun a chance to salute back.
Additionally, the center houses a whole crew of holistic healers. The roster includes reiki masters, certified massage therapists, hypnotherapists, and an honest-to-god shaman, all of whom promote physical and spiritual balance and healing through a wide range of modalities, ranging from massages to herbal healing sessions.
At Rehoboth Surf Boarding School, instructors get pupils out in the waves in the span of two hours. Their surfing lessons accomodate individuals, small groups, or larger groups of up to 10, and cover everything from beginner moves to more advanced wave-slicing techniques.
Dr. Dimitrios Danikas and his team of highly trained, certified aestheticians help to revamp visages with a medley of revitalizing skincare services. After a private consultation, facial clocks are cleansed and prepped before the application of the personalized PCA peel solution, which takes about 30 minutes. Clients can choose from three types of peels that include an enhanced Jessner's treatment, which helps smooth fine lines and treat skin discoloration, and a TCA peel that blends lactic acid, ascorbic acid, and plumping phytohormones to reduce redness and smooth countenances without the downtime common in other TCA treatments. A salicylic-acid peel helps to clear follicle blockages, smooth skin texture, and reduce breakouts, and it’s available in a pumpkin scent that induces grins wider than those of a made-over jack-o’-lantern. Once the peel is removed, a well-shaken cocktail of corrective serums treats skin to a venerable happy hour of complexion-quenching rejuvenation, leaving skin feeling fresh and slathered in SPF.
