A wellness center is a place designed to help you restore mental and physical health and fitness. Yelo Spa provides a completely innovative experience—proven mental and physical rejuvenation through a unique combination of spa and wellness treatments. Yelo is about time-efficient, results-oriented therapy.

What’s the meaning behind the name Yelo?

The name evokes the color yellow: strong and positive — and its association with the life giving force of the sun. The Y in Yelo stands for You, our client: the most important person in our company.

What treatments are offered at Yelo?

Sports, Swedish and Prenatal massage. Reflexology on the feet, hands or ears (including the shoulder neck and head). Esthetic services from the chest up including micro-current, ultra-sound, LED treatments as well as traditional Esthetic technique such as peel, scrubs and extraction. Yelo also offers an Ionic Foot Bath (Toe-Tal Detox) and Alpha Sphere – the full sensory relaxation experience.

What is a YeloNap?

The YeloNap is our sleep therapy system. It may be experienced on its own for rest and rejuvenation or combined with Yelo Reflexology. YeloNaps are available in five-minute increments from a 20-minute minimum to a 40-minute maximum.

If I take a YeloNap, how can you ensure that I will fall asleep?

We can’t guarantee it, but you have to experience it. Our state-of-the-art YeloCabs are private, uniquely designed cabins that feature chromatherapy, aromatherapy and purified air. The YeloChair elevates the legs above the heart to slow down your heart rate encouraging full relaxation within minutes. This relaxation response will quickly lead you to sleep.

How will I know how much time I need for a nap?

We set time limits from 20 minutes to 40 minutes. Taking a nap for less than 20 minutes won’t provide you with enough rest, but a nap of over 40 minutes will encourage too deep of a sleep, from which it will be difficult to awaken without feeling groggy. You can choose any nap length between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on how much time you need to relax and get settled.

How does Reflexology work?

Excessive stress disrupts the natural functioning of the body’s systems and homeostasis. By using finger pressure and massage techniques directed at reflex points on the feet, hands, and ears, reflexology releases energy blocks that can cause pain, disability or tension resulting in decreased stress and pain, and improved well being and sleep.

Reflexology also helps the body fall into deep relaxation, calming down the nervous system and allowing for better circulation. Many clients do fall asleep during our Reflexology sessions. This brief nap, combined with the benefits of Reflexology, help put you in a better mood and increases your energy and productivity.

Are there age limitations or contraindications for receiving Yelo Reflexology treatments?

No, but please let your therapist know of any condition that may be applicable, such as diabetes or pregnancy. Reflexology is considered to be one of the safest and non-invasive forms of alternative medicine. Your therapist is trained to carefully work with these conditions.

Do I need to remove any of my clothing?

None, except for your shoes.

What are some specific conditions that Yelo Reflexology can be used to help with?

Allergies, Arthritis, Upper And Lower Back Problems, Colds, Cramps, Fatigue, Headache, Indigestion, Ulcer, Insomnia, Constipation, Depression, Drug Dependency, High Blood Pressure, Impotence, Infections, Kidney Problems, Liver Conditions, Menopause, Nervousness, Sciatica, Loss of Vitality.

What is a YeloCab?

YeloCabs are our patented treatment cabins. They’ve been designed to be the ultimate individual relaxation space—a sleek, private, self-contained environment.

With our state-of-the-art sound system, you can customize your aural experience from a wide selection of relaxing music and environmental sounds.

Choose your settings for chromatherapy and aromatherapy and be soothed by state-of-the-art LED color changing lights and relaxing scents.

The YeloCab also features a technologically advanced, custom-designed YeloChair that reclines deeply so the legs are elevated above the heart. This gives a feeling of weightlessness, which encourages full relaxation within minutes.

Can you tell me more about the YeloChair?

Custom-designed, thickly cushioned, and crafted of the finest leather, the YeloChair reclines deeply to keep the legs elevated above the heart, allowing the heart rate to slow down. This is called the zero gravity position. It produces a feeling of weightlessness and induces complete relaxation within minutes. At the end of the session, the LED projector will simulate a gentle “sunrise” in order for the waking experience to be subtle and natural, not disorienting.

Where is Yelo located?

Our flagship location is at 315 West 57 Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, New York, NY 10019. Click here for a map.

How can I make an appointment?

Clients can book treatment sessions at www.yelonyc.com, or by calling Yelo at 212-245-8235. Walk-ins are also welcome.

When will I start feeling results?

You will start feeling results immediately. You will begin to relax and rejuvenate as soon as your session begins. The long-term effects are cumulative, and will increase steadily over time. Ideally, treatments work best if you are able to sustain a proper maintenance schedule.

How can I get my company to enter into an agreement so I can be a corporate member?

If you provide us with the contact information, we will be happy to send them informational material. We also offer deep discounts to employees of participating companies.
