Yamuna Table Treatment
What Is It?
Originating at the renown Canyon Ranch Spa, this therapeutic treatment is equivalent to a hands on body rolling session. The Yamuna balls are used on the massage table to release one side of the body while the practitioner applies gentle traction to the opposite side of the body. In this way, a dual release occurs, helping the client achieve greater joint mobility, lengthened muscles, and proper alignment of the body.
This table work is appropriate for everyone. If you are noticing tightness, restriction in range of motion, and a feeling of being shortened or compressed in any part of your body, you should try a table treatment. There are key areas in the body where we commonly begin to stiffen - the neck, the shoulders, hips, spine, knees, and feet. The table work can provide a new and restored feeling of body awareness and release, while promoting greater space and openness in the joints to free restriction. The treatment itself is very relaxing, yet is deep. The vast majority of those who experience this work feel the results quickly.
We now offer 30 minute sessions of Yamuna Table Treatment for targeting specific areas of concern. Full 60 minute sessions are also available.
TRX What Is It?
TRX is a strength training and core muscle workout that uses bodyweight and gravity to performstrength training exercises that build power, muscle strength, balance, mobility, all at the intensity that is right for you. Everyone can benefit from suspension training, whether you are in peak condition, just starting out, or somewhere in between. Because you can effortlessly control the level of resistance by shifting the position of your body, the workout is also perfect for those seeking gentle post-rehabilitation training. The big difference between TRX training and traditional weight training is that when you train on the TRX you work in multiple planes of motion using multiple muscles and joints simultaneously. Another great aspect of TRX training involves the core muscles of the body. In order to do the TRX exercises correctly, you need to activate your abdominal, spinal and shoulder muscles for optimal alignment.
YAMUNA BODY ROLLING What is it?
Yamuna Body Rolling is a program that combines fitness, injury-prevention and abdominal strengthening into a simple workout.
