Delos Therapy is a precise, state-of-the-art therapy where pressure is applied to the entire length of the muscle. It is based on the science of three-dimensional micro-stretching of the muscular fibers that are causing the symptoms observed. During this stretching process, vascular and lymphatic circulation is vastly elevated to improve the vital health of the affected tissues.
We are thrilled to welcome Delos Therapy to StyleChicago.com’s Resolutions 2020 at the W Chicago – City Center on Friday, January 31, 2020. Meet and chat with their medical professionals to find some hope and a solution for your nagging pain.
Among the results that can be expected from the Delos Therapy are the elimination of muscle tightness, prevention of surgeries, faster recovery after surgery, reduced need for MRI/CT scans, reduced side effects, reduced medication and treatment costs.
The Delos Approach:
Muscles and fascia become chronically contracted, forming knots and congested tissue, leading to dysfunction, disability and pain. They approach pain, stiffness, and injuries by identifying the root cause of the problem to help alleviate symptoms and get you back to doing the things you love.
How Delos Therapy is different than…
• Physical Therapy – Conventional techniques of stretching and strengthening are most effective when muscles are pliable. Delos Therapy achieves pliability by micro-stretching muscles and fascia with systematic and precise pressure.
• Chiropractic – Manipulating bones becomes more effective when surrounding muscles are pliable. Delos Therapy restores pliability, allowing skeletal alignment to hold.
• Trigger Point Therapy – Rather than targeting predetermined points on the body, Delos Therapy targets specific, three-dimensional patterns of muscle tightness and addresses all of the fibers, including the trigger points.
• Deep Tissue Massage & Foam Rolling – Deep tissue massage is a superficial technique that glides over muscle tightness in a single plane. It doesn’t address three-dimensional tightness or hold tissue in a stretched position long enough to be fully effective.
• Conventional Stretching – Tight tissue does not stretch effectively, so during conventional stretching, only healthy and pliable fibers are pulled apart. As a result, pain and stiffness remain.
Why the name “Delos”?
The island of Delos in ancient Greece was the birthplace of Apollo, the god of medicine and healing. Many say modern medicine was born in Delos. This is where the world’s most advanced physicians and scientists practiced. In a way, it was the island of hope.
About the practice:
Delos Therapy was developed over 30 years ago by Kenny Owens. In the early 1980s, he injured his shoulder playing competitive table tennis and sought the help of numerous traditional and alternative healthcare providers, all to no avail. He noticed that anytime a practitioner applied static pressure, it seemed to be effective, but it was always combined with ineffective gliding techniques. Using a system of only pressure, he found that the muscles would soften at the location of the pressure, and the result was a decrease in pain and increase in range of motion. As he worked on himself using this philosophy of sustained pressure, he restored his body to normal function. Kenny ended up building a successful therapy practice in Houston where his impressive client base has included professional athletes Evander Holyfield, Carl Lewis, Warren Moon, the Houston Oilers and the Houston Rockets.
Kenny passed on his knowledge to his son Eric Owens who has grown the business across the Chicago area. Eric, with his background as a professional athlete, his Master’s Degree in biomedical science, current medical studies and his experience administering the therapy for 15 years has partnered with Mimi Bosika, who also has an athletic background, management, operations and sales experience and a Master’s in Business degree from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
