Voted best men's barber and salon by the readers of Delaware Today in 2012 and 2014, Studio One Eleven surrounds fellas in relaxing, masculine ambiance while polishing handsome exteriors. Haircuts, coloring services, and dandruff-fighting scalp treatments keep dapper Dans looking even dapperer, and waxing streamlines chests for pool season or removes chest-clinging koalas for sweltering summer months. Spa services such as massages and facials melt away stress while keeping skin supple with essential oils and moisturizing emollients. The studio's focus on luxury extends beyond specific services, with complimentary chair massages during every visit, free hairdo touchups between scheduled visits, and an onsite putting green to practice shots while waiting for appointments.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Scott E. Rosenthal, taking over the family business meant stepping into the shoes of his chiropractor father and helming a practice more than 40 years old. Inspired by his father's work, he set out to straighten backbones and nurture the health of others by learning all he could about chiropractic care. But he didn't stop there—a passion for health and wellness led him to become a registered yoga teacher and earn certification in the Webster technique of pediatric care. His studies also enabled him to become an expert in nutrition and the writer of a monthly column for Living Well Magazine that discusses the pros of a healthy diet, nutritious foods, and breathing.
All of this knowledge serves to bolster the health of Rosenthal Chiropractic's patients. Dr. Rosenthal's chiropractic services for adults, children, and expecting mothers keep them healthy from head to toe, and he performs specific treatments that address more troublesome disc problems. Free, in-office health classes hosted by the staff impart tips on eating healthy, stress reduction, and exercise for corporate workers.
Ensconced in a private room, a woman takes a deep breath and slowly exhales as warm bamboo transmit heat to her muscles, melting away the tension built up between her shoulders. As she slips into a state of profound relaxation, a trained therapist blends Swedish, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release techniques to untangle her most tightly wound knots. They also offer Mu-Xing bamboo therapy, which allows therapists to use warm bamboo and rosewood tools to work deeper and deliver a full body deep tissue massage.
Such a scene is a daily reality at A Balanced Life Massage, where 18 massage therapists team up to alleviate muscles sore from the workday rigors of sitting in office chairs or riding the break room’s mechanical bull. Their massage center is built on the basis of professional massage services without the fancy robes, manicures, and expensive notions of some day spas. Simply tell your therapist what ails you during a 15-minute presession consultation; together, you can craft a custom massage that pays specific attention to your treatment goals and problem areas.
