Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy involves stepping into a cryosauna which is chilled with liquid nitrogen to over -265 degrees for up to three minutes. The person in the chamber wears gloves, socks, clogs and underwear.Whole Body Cryotherapy is an amazing treatment for workout recovery and pain management. It is also effective for treating arthritis, chronic & acute inflammatory disorders, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disorders, weight issues, anxiety, and depression.
Therapeutic Massage should be considered a necessary part of your health and wellness plan as opposed to a pampering treat. Regular massage can decrease depression and anxiety, improve concentration, and enhance sleep quality. We also work with a lot of athletes of all levels to prepare for and/or recover from strenuous workouts, to ease soft tissue strains or injuries, and increase joint flexibility.
Acupuncture is effective for a wide range of conditions including physical, mental, and emotional problems. Acupuncture can be beneficial for treating a wide variety of diseases, but is most commonly recognized as a remedy for pain, allergies & asthma, insomnia, dermatologic issues, depression & anxiety, menstrual challenges, digestive problems, neurological disorders, migraines & headaches, arthritis, stress, stroke, high blood pressure, and infertility
Clinical Counseling are mental health counselors who operate from a wellness perspective, which emphasizes moving toward optimal human functioning in mind, body, and spirit, and away from distress, dysfunction, and mental illness. Counselors also view wellness and pathology as developmental in nature, and take into consideration all levels of a client's environment when conducting assessment and treatment.
Salt Therapy in our Salt Cocoon
Salt Therapy or Halotherapy is the use of microfine salt particles circulated through the air to help open the airways and make breathing easier. Salt therapy has been shown to help with many respiratory disorders such as allergies, asthma, both acute and chronic sinusitis, and more severe breathing disorders like COPD. Patients have also shown improvement in certain skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy Light is a lot like food. Similar to how our bodies digest fats, carbs, and proteins, we uniquely metabolize colors of light as well. In fact, specific wavelength of red and near infrared light within the “therapeutic window” have been proven across hundreds of peer-reviewed clinical studies to enhance mitochondrial function at a cellular level.
