How We Do It
Wellest offers a unique interdisciplinary team of a Physical Therapist and Nurse Practitioner. We believe that each patient needs a unique care plan. Wellest providers are specifically trained to effectively assess and treat internal and external pelvic floor tissue restrictions and global myofascial restrictions that can contribute to dysfunction and pain. The treatment you will receive is 100% one-on-one with your specialized provider. We do not have physical therapy aides or assistants. We utilize a multidisciplinary approach in order to have a comprehensive treatment plan for our patients. We coordinate with all other providers and recommend adjunct therapies that we believe can play a role in your healing. We spend 60 minutes with YOU and only YOU.
Myofascial Release is a technique that involves sustained pressure into the connective tissue or fascial restriction in order to improve function, restore motion, and eliminate pain
VM uses very specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, motion, and tone of the organs and their connective tissues. The gentle manipulations improve the functionality of the individual organs and enhance the entire body.
A soft touch is used to release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the function of the central nervous system

A Word from Our Clients
"Like most men with pelvic floor pain, I was given the standard run around by my doctors and treated with medicine that was completely ineffective. My outlook and prognosis didn't start to improve until Melissa started treating me. My pain went from a constant 7 out of 10, to a 2-3 daily and now some days none at all. Melissa not only helped me with her treatment, but was also able to connect me with other providers to supplement hers. I would not be where I am at today without Melissa's expertise and guidance. Long story short, Melissa gave me my life back."
