Mellow Yelo - Power Naps For Urbanites
Yelo is an entirely new concept in wellness. It is a sanctuary designed to help urbanites deal with the pressures of modern life through a unique combination of sleep and reflexology therapies.
The YeloNap is Yelo Spa's version of the “Power Nap”—their sleep therapy system of 20- to 40-minute naps. Naps of this duration have been medically proven to increase alertness and productivity as well as information retention.
Yelo is about time-efficient, results-oriented relaxation. It is not a spa. Yelo provides the deeper experience of giving you back your time and space when you need it most. It’s about you. It’s about time.
Sleep is a crucial part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Medical studies have proven a direct correlation between sleep and productivity, and recently it has been discovered that even a short nap can significantly improve performance. A YeloNapSM will help you recharge and feel refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated.
The YeloNap is our specially-designed sleep therapy system. It takes place in our unique, modern, private cabins: the YeloCabsTM. When your nap begins, you will recline in our luxurious YeloChairTM to elevate your legs above your heart. This will slow down your pulse and encourage deep relaxation.
YeloNaps are available in five-minute increments from 20-40 minutes in length, priced at $1 per minute. You can choose the timing that suits you best within these limits. We set these limits because a nap of less than 20 minutes won’t provide you with enough rest, while a nap of more than 40 minutes will encourage a deep (REM) sleep, from which you might emerge feeling groggy.
The YeloNap may be experienced on its own for rest and rejuvenation or combined with Yelo Reflexology—treatments designed to heal and alleviate specific conditions or ailments and allow you to emerge feeling balanced and energized.
On their website they have a real time clock letting you know when the next available YeloCab is. Very cool. And very rejuvenating.
