Dave & Juliet have recently completed updated training on The OOV, and they’re excited to share what they’ve learned!

The OOV is a revolutionary device that is ergonomically designed to complement the three curves of the spine and to mimic natural movement. The OOV was developed by Australian Osteopath and Neuroscientist Daniel Vladeta who saw the need for a self-correcting device that would embed motor learning. The OOV is an unstable, proprioceptive, bio-feedback tool that re-patterns and enhances efficient movement.

Incorporating traditional Pilates exercises applied to the OOV and balance training, our OOV-trained instructors are able to assess correctly & identify where instability and restriction exist in the body, and help you develop strategies to promote improved motor control, strength, endurance, proper alignment, and increase dynamic stability through the 3D activation of myofascial slings.

Ask your provider about how you can incorporate the OOV into your sessions! To book a session with Dave or Juliet, give our office a call at 773-472-0560.

Meet Melody!

Hello! My name is Melody Lien. I’ve been a massage therapist going on 7 years now. I was born in Hawaii and have family that practice massage on Oahu, which is one of the reasons I chose massage therapy as my career. My style of massage varies from relaxation, to treating and helping specific areas of concern. I am also certified in prenatal & postnatal massage. I love educating clients and showing the benefits of massage through stretching and increasing mobility. In my time off I stay active through yoga, lifting, and spending time outdoors whenever I can! I’m excited to be a part of Balance and hopefully meet a lot of you soon! 

We are so excited to have Melody joining the Balance team! To book with Melody or any of our staff, give the front desk a call today at 773-472-0560.
We’re happy to help!
