The following techniques may be provided as stand-alone treatments, or they may be combined with each other or with any other bodywork treatment for a luxurious and therapeutic combination treatment.

Electro-Magnetic Impulse Therapy (EMI)
- A Transformations Wellness EXCLUSIVE

Think Reflexology for the body – your therapist will use massage to establish and maintain contact with your body’s electro-magnetic field and will read electrical impulses/signals emitted by the field. The therapist will then apply gentle pressure to specific reflex points in order to correct imbalances and restore the natural flow of energy within and around the body. EMI Therapy triggers the body’s natural ability to heal itself and can address any number of maladies, such as: all types of pain including arthritis and migraines, depression and other mental/emotional imbalances, chronic fatigue, mental fog, obesity and eating disorders and much more.

Total Body Transformation - our signature service

Remember those Progressive Muscle Relaxation techniques we learned, when we were younger, which were designed to produce extreme relaxation? (see video to the right) These techniques were based on the understanding that a sufficiently fatigued muscle is incapable of holding tension. If your massage therapist or physical therapist were to apply pressure to the muscle being focused on, while you were to flex and work the muscle, it would fatigue even more completely and efficiently, releasing more tension and lactic acid than you would be able to release by performing these techniques by yourself.

Our Total Body Transformation is by far the most effective form of bodywork you'll find at releasing tight muscles throughout the body in the least amount of time WITHOUT PAIN - it's not a massage, but more like a physical therapy workout. If you want to feel like a soggy noodle and sleep like a baby for days (or maybe even weeks) after your treatment, and you don't mind working for it, this is the treatment for you!

This is not your mother's massage!

We use Active Release techniques from head-to-toe to slightly fatigue every major muscle group in the body, effectively releasing lactic acid and tension in a gentle-but-effective way. Each and every major muscle group is worked progressively, until your entire body is completely relaxed and tension-free.

Each successive treatment becomes more and more effective as you and your therapist become more and more established in a synergistic, personalized routine together. We're not kidding when we tell you that this treatment is not for beginners! This treatment will release more lactic acid than any other type of massage or bodywork. If you've never had a massage, or if it has been more than a year since your last massage, please do not schedule this treatment until you have had at least one full-body deep-Swedish-type massage to flush excess lactic acid from the body first. (Forcing too much lactic acid into the bloodstream at once, when your body isn't used to it, can result in excessive muscle soreness or nausea after treatment.)

  • Introductory Level: SAVE $40 ON YOUR FIRST TREATMENT! We recommend 2½ hours for your first treatment (reg $200, you pay just $160), which will include a brief intake/consultation and an explanation of the technique, followed by a full 2 hours or more of treatment with movement instruction.
  • Maintenance Level: Once you've learned the required movements, maintenance level treatment takes less time. Once you're happy with the results you've achieved from your Introductory Level or Transformative Level of treatment, Maintenance Level treatment will help you to maintain those results. This level brings each major muscle group to a light fatigue. 90 minutes.
  • Transformative Level: This level brings your muscles to a more complete state of fatigue, and more muscle groups may be treated than in Maintenance Level. If you're still experiencing pain, fatigue or postural problems, continue at this level until you feel ready to maintain what you have achieved. 2-hours.
  • Expert Level: More muscle groups, more fatigue, more transformation! Recommended for athletes and extra-strong body types. 2½ hours.

"I developed tendonitis in my right arm, which was very painful and affected my ability to do my job. [Chena] was able to work me into her schedule the same week. She assessed my pain and developed a therapy based on my individual needs. She used neuromuscular-therapy and cupping-therapy on me and continually provided explanations of the process and the benefits it would provide. I never heard of cupping before... but I loved the results! I noticed less pain and increased comfort the next day. My arm continues to heal thanks to [Chena's] professional therapy and I continue to recommend her to my friends and coworkers." - Kacey Gallagher, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Pain Neutralization Technique (PNT)

Developed by Dr. Stephen Kaufman, this amazing system of instant pain relief is also widely known as the "Kaufman Technique." If you are having pain that is so severe that you can't bear the thought of anyone touching you, let alone performing bodywork, then start with this technique!

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Points are regarded as the source of pain. When a Trigger Point is effectively "turned off", pain disappears. In this technique, the therapist is using thumbs, fingertips or elbows to apply firm pressure to individual points on a muscle in order to encourage the Trigger Point to release and the muscle to relax.

The use of vibrational devices in trigger point therapy is increasing in popularity. It helps to decrease hand/finger fatigue for the therapist, allowing for longer, more intense treatments. The Ohio State University Medical Center recommends using vibration massage as a method of pain relief that doesn't involve drugs. The vibrational massage helps relieve painful conditions by creating numbness in the afflicted area. Vibration can also help relax muscles surrounding the painful site, which can further reduce the pain. It also increases circulation, restores chi to the area being treated, and it simply feels great! Book It!

"I have been getting regular massages for 11 years. After a car accident in 1998, I started visiting massage therapists to relieve the pain in my neck and back. I've seen many massage therapists throughout the years, but none of them compare to the relief I've felt since starting with [Chena] at Transformations Wellness. She is extremely thorough before each massage; asking me questions about where I need relief, and then focusing on those areas until we're both satisfied. She also is unique in the techniques that she specializes in. I've been particularly impressed with the addition of deep-tissue stretches to my massage. I leave each session feeling 100% better than when I walked in - and always anxious to go back! I recommend Transformations Wellness to anyone who is looking for relief, relaxation, and getting great value...!" - Monica, Cheyenne

Active Release

In this technique, the client is working with the therapist in order to flex and stretch the muscle being worked as the therapist is applying firm pressure on it. When the client flexes a muscle, the fibers spread and the therapist can wiggle in between the muscle fibers; when the client stretches or relaxes the muscle, it softens to allow the therapist to work in a little deeper. The continuation of this alternating flex and relax/stretch allows for the most effective and painless penetration of the muscle tissue possible. Book It!

Traction, Compression and Decompression

The use of quick, firm pressure, stretching and traction helps to increase range of motion and decrease pain in the joints of the hands, feet, neck and spine. Book It!

Muscle Stripping

There are at least two variations of Muscle Stripping: Rapid and Slow. Rapid Muscle Stripping is the most aggressive and painful of the techniques listed here, but may also be the most effective in extreme cases such as chronic pain conditions caused by incorrectly-healed or untreated past injury. In this technique, the therapist is using knuckles or elbows to firmly and rapidly "strip" the muscle while the client is breathing deeply and performing a rapid stretching movement with the body part being treated. It is recommended only in extreme cases, or when a rapid result is desired. In Slow Muscle Stripping, the therapist is using thumbs or elbows with very slow, firm, deep movements. Book It!

"Hi [Chena], I got a great sense of how important your mission is to you, and so I thought you'd enjoy a follow-up report on my experience with your bodywork. Admittedly, when I left you I felt perhaps as much discomfort as I had the whole week, but by about four hours later I was marveling at how good I felt! I guzzled water, and made sure that this time I had plenty of back support in the "torture chair", and 90% of my pain was gone! On that [pain] scale of 1-10, where you wanted to get it down to a "2", I'd say we made it down to "1". Thank you for your excellent care, and for the education that came with it about taking care of myself... I look forward to coming back to Cheyenne... Many thanks," - Leslie Getty, Boulder, CO.

MyoFascial Release

Myofascial Release is a form of Slow Muscle Stripping (see above). The therapist uses slow pressure and passive movement to separate soft tissues where they are stuck together with excess lactic acid, and to realign muscle fibers to increase muscle efficiency. Book It!

Acupuncture Therapies

Acupressure and ETPS (Electronic Acupuncture)

Acupuncture is one of the most effective methods for redistributing "stuck" energy in the body. Many people don't realize that acupuncture can be painless and non-invasive - points can be stimulated with finger-pressure or with electricity (with a small TENS unit) instead of with needles. Book It!

"I had a very painful back spasm that my husband ended up taking me to the emergency room for. I took pain killers and muscle relaxers for a couple of weeks, and the knot was bearable, but still painful. Then I had my monthly massage with Chena, and my back suffered a spasm during our session. Chena quickly massaged one spot, I got no relief, and she switched to another [and the spasm stopped]. It was amazing! She worked a spot under my arm that I would have thought was totally unrelated to my back, and the knot released. I hadn't been able to get that kind of relief from weeks of pills! I'm a beliver in her knowledge and ability!" ~ Mandy, Cheyenne

Acupuncture Cupping Therapy

This technique involves the use of suction cups applied to the body, which causes the muscle fibers to expand and separate, as opposed to pressure-strokes used in mainstream massage therapy which compress the fibers together. By expanding the muscle tissue, it allows for additional space within the muscle for lactic acid and other toxins to flow and be released from the tissue more completely and more rapidly than with traditional massage techniques. The suction that occurs also forces body fluid to flow through the tissue, which further encourages toxins to be "flushed" from the area. It also allows the therapist to more effectively re-align tight muscle tissue fibers, which releases the "knot" that is created by tension and excess lactic acid buildup. Cupping Therapy can be used in conjunction with acupuncture needling and massage for an effective and synergistic combination treatment. Book It!
