do you know what the yellow substance in this photo is? It’s plaque. Plaque build up leads to a condition called atherosclerosis which is the hardening of the arteries. we hear this term a lot in health and medicine but not everyone knows what it really is or what it does. Most people know plaque is not a good thing but we don’t think most people know just how bad it is for you..
Plaque build up (which is cholesterol stuck to the walls of the arteries) starves the tissues of blood and oxygen. this is why so many doctors and diet stress the importance of not eating too much cholesterol because your body already naturally produces it. .
plaque can keep narrowing down the arteries until they become so blocked
that a cholesterol plaque can suddenly rupture the artery and cause blood clots (one of the top leading causes of death in the US).
we suggest getting your LDL (bad cholesterol) and HDL (good cholesterol) levels checked. just because you look skinny, don’t assume you’re off the hook from ever having a cholesterol issue. 💉👩🏽⚕️🔬
this pic sums up the vibration massage experience here at Elite Wellness. It usually entails me or josi smiling while the customer is questioning their life decisions. we smile because usually there are some comments being made about 1) how much it hurts 2) how good it feels 3) a combination of the two. .
WHY SHOULD YOU TRY THIS SERVICE?
▪️everyone on our staff has taken advanced courses in anatomy so they know to only touch the soft tissue and not the bony structures- trust me, having someone who knows the anatomy is VITAL for this.
▪️we use TWO massagers at one time to make it quick and effective.
▪️we are qualified to do an assessment on you before hand and we ask the questions that give us the answers we need in order to help you most. ▪️studying biomechanics and physiology comes in handy big time here. is a muscle causing you an issue? Is the muscle sheath stuck in some way? Has scar tissue built up over the years and you don’t even know it? Do you sit and drive in a car all day or carry a bag or kids on one side of your body that’s throwing off your musculature or skeletal alignment? ▪️get the help you need (or the help you didn’t even know you needed) by trained professionals. we will tell you the honest truth. If it’s something we can’t help you with, we will refer out to someone who we think might be able to better address your issue.
we love when people come to do cryo and they bring a friend. we love it for many reasons. we love seeing how they decide which person is going to go first. we love seeing the competitiveness between them but also the bonding between them. we love when they force the other person to take all the pics and videos of them while their in the chamber. We love the back and forth commentary between them. We love to see that friends will do anything for their friends (within reason- even if it means getting into a chamber that goes to -245°)
these two ladies were hesitant but determined. they said they had talked about doing cryotherapy for months so we gave them all the info they needed to know and left the decision up to them. as you can see from the pic, they decided to give it a try. Here’s what we tell people that stop by or call to ask us questions. If you’ve been wanting to try it, try it. It doesn’t matter if you try it with us or another company. can you find another business with a cryo chamber? Absolutely. Can you find another business with the environment and personalities we offer? Not a chance.
knowing the amount of people partying this weekend, we wanted to take a second to talk about alcohol 🍷 🍺 🍹 and hangovers and why our whole body cryotherapy could potentially be one of the biggest hangover cures that few people know about.
MEDICAL ANSWER 🧬
Alcohol affects the central nervous system, causing many short-term effects like slurred speech, blurred vision, weakened muscles, decreased reaction time and impaired memory. When alcohol is consumed excessively, it can cause cell damage in the central nervous system, creating a condition known as neuropathy.
REAL LIFE ANSWER 🍺
Alcohol is great in some social aspects but terrible for your health.
MEDICAL ANSWER 🧬
The major enzyme system(s) responsible for the oxidation of ethanol, alcohol dehydrogenase, and to a lesser extent, the cytochrome P450-dependent ethanol-oxidizing system, are present to the largest extent in the liver. Liver damage lowers the rate of alcohol oxidation and hence, elimination from the body.
REAL LIFE ANSWER 🍺
The main cause of a hangover is ethanol – the alcohol in your drinks. It's a toxic chemical that works in the body as a diuretic, which means it makes you pee more and you can become dehydrated as a result. Dehydration is one of the main causes of your hangover symptoms.
WHY WE THINK YOU SHOULD TRY CRYOTHERAPY FOR A HANGOVER CURE? 🥶 If alcohol effects your CNS negatively, then we need to effect your CNS positively. ever been so hungover all you want to do is jump in a cold pool or dump water on your head? Our cryotherapy chamber chills you to -245° Fahrenheit in 2.5 min. This temperature shocks your CNS back to life, basically hitting the reset button on your body. will it fix your hangover completely? We will have to do more tests on that but obviously replacing lost fluids and finding your electrolytes back in homeostasis would be a good place to start.

congrats to our very own Collin Verfurth who made his debut for @dcunited this week. he comes in to see us almost every week to get treatment done (cryotherapy, compression, vibration massage) and it all seems to be paying off. proper recovery + hard work = @mls . Collin has all the reasons in the world to be a cocky and obnoxious pro athlete but he’s the nicest, most polite, down to earth guy out there.
side note: one day we were finishing up with a client when Collin walked in. She asked if he was my husband. I impulsively said yes because I mean, hello why not? now we call him hubby.
welcome Manny and Riley to the Elite fam 👋🏻 Manny is a George Mason kinesiology student and Riley is a Virginia Tech human nutrition, foods and exercise student + he’s in Air Force ROTC. we take great pride in having a staff that has a degree in the health field OR is currently working towards their degree. You can trust us that you’re in good hands.
Day 1 on the job. making them both test out all of the services. best way of learning a new skill is experiencing it for yourself and then having to teach it to someone else.
and obviously we documented this lovely experience with photos 📸
these two ladies are extremely important to us. thank you to Q Athletics for referring them to us and your willingness to share these two beautiful souls. They are more to us than just customers. we text each other. We email each other when one of us is out of town. We send bitmoji’s to each other. We offer them a place for active recovery and they offer us a lifetime of advice. they teach us that at the ages of 73 and 77, that nothing is impossible. We don’t see age when we are with them. We see two women who live a healthy and active lifestyle. When we see their names on the schedule, we always have an extra pep in our step and our day is instantly better.

The face James makes when he thinks it’s going to be a slow day at work and then 7 people show up at the same time. If James was an emoji he’d look like this 😳😳😳
everyone go see James on Sunday’s from 10-3. aka today. because today’s Sunday.

many scientists are now considering the gastrointestinal tract to be our second brain. your gut can influence the chemistry of your mood, emotions, immune system, and long-term health.
100 trillion microorganisms live in your intestines and communicate with your brain 🦠 🧠.
the intestines (large and small) are about 9 meters long aka 30 feet from top to bottom. that’s a lot of room for bacteria to live in.
70% of the body’s immune system can be found in the digestive tract.
the gut processes food and produces vitamins, enzymes, fatty acids and more.
in a healthy gut, the bad bacteria will struggle to flourish.
we offer compression therapy and other services to the @evergreenhammersfc soccer team players who play 70 minutes or more per game. they are part of the #usl soccer league and some even played professionally in Europe. it’s always good to help out local teams and businesses. support the Evergreen Hammers FC by going to one of their home games in Leesburg, Virginia and help grow the fanbase of the @uslleaguetwo
you might be surprised to know that your brain actually uses more energy per pound than almost any other part of your body. It’s also among the most metabolically active tissues in the body. the brain controls voluntary movement, speech, intelligence, memory, emotion, and sensory processing.
do you want to know how to maximize your brain power so that you can perform at your best? stay tuned for more info on 🧠 🔋
WHAT DO WE DO BEST? help people get healthy and create new friendships.
Happy Monday, elite fam.
thanks to Rock Ridge High School Women’s Soccer for coming by!!!
a lot of you might recognize this woman right here. Dr. Angela Bess and her family have been coming to see us since 2018. from the second she walked in the door, we could tell there was something inspirational about her. we swear it’s as if everyone in the room already knew her. Not only did Dr. Bess just win BEST OB/GYN by @poshsevenmagazine but she is also just a downright awesome person. Doctor. Mom. Triathlete. The list goes on. She puts 100% into each and every single thing she does and we are happy to take care of her because we know she takes care of everybody else. If you’re in the market for a new OB/GYN, we have heard nothing but amazing things about Angela and her practice. check out Women’s Center of Loudoun.

we have been running our #10daycryochallenge for several months. we created this challenge based off of a clinical trial that showed that 10 straight days of cryo releases an enzyme within your body to accelerate healing WAY more than your body healing itself naturally with time. We are starting to see other places try to replicate our 10 Day Challenge and we are happy to have been the ones to start such a cool concept, however, we do ours with a bit of a special touch. ladies and gents- don’t just sign up for something because you think it’s a good deal. Know WHY and HOW the service is going to benefit you. Want to know more? Leave us a comment below or message us and ask any questions you have and we’d be happy to answer you.
over here with 13x World Champion Boxer 🥊 Tori Nelson. we were connected through a mutual friend who insisted that we meet and I’m so glad we did. you can find her training at the brand spankin’ new Ashburn Boxing Academy that opened this weekend! follow us to stay tuned for what’s to come..
we take care of people who take care of people. Donnell is one of the only massage therapists that travels all over DC-MARYLAND-VIRGINIA to come to see you in the comfort of your own home in order to give you a massage. He came all the way from Waldorf, Maryland to our location in Virginia just to show some love and get some of his own recovery. If you’re in this health/wellness industry, PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH just like @hands_in_motionmobile . Donnell Atherley
Had a great experience @elite_wellness_dmv with Mckenna, helping me upgrade my body maintenance!

here’s a pic of some of our volleyball superstars. they play for @loudouncountyvb & @loudounbeachvolleyball and have been working super hard over the last 5 months. can’t believe club volleyball last for almost 6 months so it’s extremely important that they do recovery, especially after all of their tournaments where they play multiple games back to back.

huge congrats to Cortrelle Simpson for signing with the @buccaneers !!!! he would come in after his training sessions to do cryotherapy and other treatments with us. We’d always ask him if he felt ready for pro day. if he was nervous. what would he do if he was drafted. what would he do if he wasn’t drafted. he was always willing to answer us and we’re so happy to see him make it to the NFL 🏈 thanks for letting us be a small part of your football journey and you better stop in next time you’re in town or we’ll come to Tampa and hunt you down.
