Born and raised in New Jersey, in high school, Kika developed an interest in dance when her family relocated from Newark to Bloomfield.

In 2011, Kika Wise founded Kika Stretch Studios to introduce a new approach to people’s health and fitness. Through gentle assisted stretching, Kika Stretch Studios helps clients maintain youth and vitality with designed tension relief that aids in increased flexibility and overall ability. Incorporating a dancer’s approach to stretching and fitness with a signature one-of-a-kind Kika Method®, Kika has also developed the Kika Stretch Age ®, a unique tool used to measure a client’s age based on flexibility.

Kika Stretch Studios’ unique system also features a custom line of products, including stretching oils and socks to enhance the assisted stretching experience.

As one of the nation’s youngest and most promising franchisors, Kika is rapidly growing her brand and helping others along the way. Having established a successful career of wellness built on the hope of inspiring and empowering others, Kika Wise is a businesswoman on a mission to educate millennials and other generations on how to preserve self and pursue franchising.
