Twin Cities Wellness Center & Recovery Gym

2912 N 2nd Street Minneapolis, MN 19512

(612) 234-4242

Twin Cities Wellness Center provides patients with multiple wellness groups throughout the treatment week by utilizing its 3500 square feet multipurpose gym area.

Patients are assessed for overall fitness and lifestyle habits/interests and have a mutually agreed wellness plan prepared as a part of a client’s treatment programming and under the direction of our LADC’s and the Wellness Program Supervisor. All of our LADC’s that facilitate wellness groups also hold certifications within exercise and nutrition including Certified Physical Trainer’s, CF -L2 Trainer/Coach, and Registered Dietitian.

The scheduled participation in group fitness activities is tailored to a client’s individual capabilities. Clients endure physical activity and increase production of their brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins. In turn, clients are exposed to a healthy practice that can help manage their stress levels, develop relationships with their body, and improve their physical health and functionality by focusing on improving mobility, breathing, weight loss, muscle gain and physical endurance enhancing both quality of life while addressing mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, etc.

All wellness groups that take place in the gym, begin and end with a warmup and a cool down session as part of the training. During these times, client’s check-in regarding stress and anxiety levels and pre and post physical wellness.

Physical wellness groups include low-intensity circuit training, inner resistance training, strength training, yoga, and light weight kickboxing

Jennifer Tichenor

I work with Individuals and Couples in Maplewood, Minnesota.

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and have found success in helping couples who struggle with issues related to conflict, trust, infidelity, and other unresolved issues. Many therapists will say that they work with or use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, but have not completed the specialized and rigorous training that entails the competency to use it. It is imperative that you choose a therapist for your relationship who is well trained and competent in couples therapy because an untrained therapist can diminish your chances of relationship success greatly.

I am passionate about this because I have been a client in couples therapy and have experienced someone who was essentially “practicing” what they learned from a book, and not through the proper training that addresses the complexities that an intimate relationship contains. The benefits of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy include decreased anxiety when conflicts occur, effective listening and communication skills, the creation of positive interactions (that used to be highly charged and damaging), increased trust and intimacy, comfort in managing and working through impasses, and a better understanding of each other’s needs.

Most of us are not taught how to have healthy interactions with our partner. Working with a therapist who is warm and effective in creating a non-judgmental place to help you work through relationship issues that may feel shameful and embarrassing, is the basis for your relationship growth. It is my goal first and foremost for you to feel comfortable, as if you are talking to a real human being, and not the stereotypical “shrink.” My approach is centered on you feeling comfortable and focused on teaching and helping you to apply solutions you can begin to use right away.

I am Level 1 trained in EMDR, which is highly effective in managing symptoms that stem from trauma. Additional expertise in working with Native American population around trauma.

Cold therapy is a form of cold stress that will activate the body’s internal healing mechanisms. There are many forms of cold therapy tubs and chambers that will give you all of the benefits of cold therapy. These methods may include using a chiller combined with cold plunge, or adding ice to a cold tub or ice barrel. Most commonly cold therapy is used for athletic recovery or mental clarity.

What is the difference between and Ice Bath and a Cold Plunge?

The difference between an ice bath and a cold plunge is that you typically don’t have to add ice to a cold plunge with a chiller unit. With an ice bath you will simply add the ice, and drain the tub when finished. With a cold plunge the chiller will circulate and filter the water so there will be less frequent draining and filling the tub.

What is the optimum temperature for an ice bath?

The optimum temperature really depends on the individual and the goals they may have. The standard temperature is 50-59 degrees F for at least 5-10 minutes. Although, high performance athletes may use colder temperatures between 42-50 degrees F with a duration of 3-6 minutes.

Are ice baths healthy?

Before using any of our ice baths or cold plunges please read the manufacturer's suggestions on temperatures and time in the water.

Is an ice bath better than a cold shower?

Although there is value to taking a cold shower every now and then. Ice baths and cold plunges will have an immediate effect on your entire body. The only way to truly reach consistent application of the cold is to fully submerge the body for a set duration of time.

How do you take an ice bath?

For beginners the best way is to submerge your body into the water while keeping your hands and head above the water. Focus on your breathing and remain calm as the first few minutes are always the hardest. Typically the bath would last about 5-10 minutes. 

More experienced methods may include a quick head dunk into the water and keeping hands in the water for full recovery benefits. We also recommend using a colder temperature for a shorter amount of time.
