Tucked away on the quaint, tree lined Music Row is Nashville Tennessee’s newest wellness studio, Blue Stem Wellness. I had the opportunity to check it out before it officially launches in January and I wanted to share with you all what makes it super unique. As someone who loves CrossFit and works out daily I will jump at the chance to try something new. And bonus points if it is something that I have never done before because I love testing my body and omg, Blue Stem Wellness offered just that.
I was greeted by Chelsea, who is their manager and knows all the things. Off we went to try out all the offerings. Below is the order I did my spa day in and I totally recommends it.
Blue Stem Wellness:
Lets just say HOLY CORE. This is not your average core workout. It is a core therapy and training system that targets over 50 deep core muscles. It can benefit anyone from quadriplegics to elite athletes! By using your body weight to fight gravity, you are exercising in a way you never have before. It’s only 10 minutes and recommended that you use three times a week for improved core stability, balance, coordination, improved posture, and better overall fitness & health. Best part, you literally can do this in your street clothes. I tend to avoid abs since I have always been weaker here. There is no avoiding this ab workout. They are engaged the whole ten minutes and workload can be increased or decreased based off your specific wellness.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy mat aka PEMF Therapy
It is FDA approved to treat anxiety, depression, increased energy, muscle stimulation, and so much more. It also helps reduce pain and inflammation.This was actually amazing because I could feel the electromagnetic pulses penetrating places on my body that were sore even though my whole body was covered by this weight of the machine.
They have the number one Ozone Sauna in the world (and the ONLY one in Tennessee). It is the ultimate detox and immune boost, with 9 different therapies in one 30 minute session.
* immune system boost
* increased energy
* mental clarity
* reduced pain
* and so much more!
You enter the hot steam cabinet where ozone is introduced to your body to through the skin. This is known as transdermal ozone. As the steam penetrates skin, your pores open and toxins are removed. Oh and did I mention this actually burns calories too! Yeah I could get used to that workout. They diffuse essential oils in the room, turn the lights down, music on, and oxygen is provided for a super relaxing yet rejuvinateing experience.
So my overall thoughts? I love the owners and employees. They are super friendly and knowledgeable. I have no doubt they are going to lead the change in unique offerings in wellness spas and I left feeling like a million bucks. I can only imagine what repetitive use would do for overall health and wellbeing. Go check them out!
