Psychotherapy is a collaborative process rooted in the relationship between the client(s) and therapist. While each approach and relationship are unique, one constant is the confidential, supportive space in which client(s) can speak openly with someone who is objective and nonjudgemental. Client(s) and therapist work together to identify, process, and change areas of difficulty or stress.
Please take a look at the therapists’ bios on Threshold and their individual websites listed there to find the right fit for you. Offerings include individual, couples, family and group therapy. Each therapist can be reached directly for a consultation.
Beth Jellinek, MPhilEd, MSEd, LPC offers therapy on Thursdays and Fridays. To schedule with Beth, contact her at 215-804-4137.
Acupuncture is one of the fastest growing medicines in the country. It is effective and safe. It has been successfully used by millions of people over thousands of years. Acupuncture works by restoring the systemic balance to the human body. A systemic imbalance occurs when we have physical pain, injury, insomnia, digestive issues, stress, gynecological and reproductive issues, allergies, depressions, colds, and countless other complications. Acupuncture helps to restore one’s natural balance so that organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony. Once this is done, the body is prepared to repair itself and maintain its own optimal health.
Acupuncture had been known to:
–Stimmulating the immune system by increasing white blood cells which boosts overall immunity and guards the body against future infection.
–Regulating blood sugar metabolism, which helps maintain energy levels and aid in weight loss if desired.
–Incrasing blood circulation to naturally lower blood pressure while decreasing “bad” cholesterol and increasing “good” cholesterol.
–Optimizes the function of the digestive system by normalizing stomach acidity and improving the digestive process.
–Directly impacts pain neural pathways in the nervous system so that pain is decreased and erased.
–Regulating the bio-availability of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the human body which leads to better sleep, appetite and mood.

This type of massage works with the connective tissue in the body, and allows for deep releases with often surprising new understandings of how parts of the body connect.
This type of massage offer specialized myofascial techniques specifically focused on relieving TMJ symptoms. Missy’s own issues in this area led her to seek out more training, and over time, she’s combined that training with her own knowledge and understanding of the body to make this work available to you. Getting a general massage helps, but when dealing with issues in this specific area, these techniques bring more relief because they get into deeper muscles, ones that don’t ordinarily get touched.

Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques with or without the use of oil, cream or lotion based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body.
Research has demonstrated such effects for several reflex areas and their reflected parts of the body. In general terms, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body’s equilibrium.

Warm Bamboo Massage
Warm bamboo massage uses heated rollers and curved bamboo tools to roll away the tension trapped in your muscles.
This ancient technique has been adapted to our modern day wellness center to combine deep-tissue massage and heat therapy. Some recipients of bamboo massage have described the experience as releasing a whole-body tingling or warming sensation. When heat is applied to a sore area of the body, blood vessels widen and blood flow increases to transport excess lactic acid and other toxins away from tired muscles.
