It's easy to feel pampered inside Glam India. As guests enter the coral-colored salon, aestheticians lead them toward the gold-framed mirrors of individual styling stations where they fix up brows, brighten complexions, and decorate skin. Though the staff also excels at waxing treatments, the salon's signature service is threading—a hypoallergenic hair-removal method that relies on twists of cotton thread to quickly and accurately contour eyebrows and remove fuzz from faces without harming the surrounding skin. The beauty experts can also refine visages with one of their signature herbal facials, which call on everything from chocolate to ancient Ayurvedic serums to create glowing complexions and orphaned blackheads. For a more distinctive aesthetic treatment, the staff also uses henna to add a slight reddish tint to hair or draw complex designs on hands.
At World of Wellness, a team individually tailors a wellness plan to each patient, often offering complimentary weight-loss and wellness consultations to new clients. For clients interested in more in-depth therapies, visits begin with an in-depth diagnostic consultation, followed by a physical exam that helps the doctors better understand the patients' ailments and preferences. Doctors then construct a wellness plan, drawing from services including natural medicine, chiropractic work, rehab, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling.
Clotilde Barnes's passion for holistic healthcare and nutrition has led her around the globe. After graduating from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, the native of Veracruz, Mexico, went on to train at the Western College for Medical Assistance and the San Francisco School of Massage while becoming a licensed medical aesthetician. Her journey to the U.S. in 2000 drew her deeper into the medical field, affording her the opportunity to work with family doctors, dermatologists, and chiropractors. Barnes has pooled everything that science and ancient traditions have taught her, and has owned her own business since 2008.
Barnes promotes health and well-being with alternative therapies such as reflexology sessions, which balance bodily energy via pressure points in the feet. Organic chemical peels exfoliate skin with gentle enzymes and minerals to diminish fine lines. She also performs photofacials that employ light-emitting diodes, diachronic lamps, or Lite-Brite pins to boost collagen production and combat signs of aging.
Since 1989, licensed acupuncturist Bill Clement of DFW Acupuncture Center has used holistic techniques to help his patients improve the connection between mind and body. Bill uses acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat ailments that range from chronic pain and migraines to digestive disorders and asthma. Prior to each service, Bill evaluates patients' health concerns within an initial consultation and measures their comfort with needles by discreetly popping a balloon. During acupuncture, Bill inserts hair-thin metal needles at points along the body’s 14 meridians, which are energy points that run the entire length of the body. Specific adjustments to the needles can circulate balanced energy throughout the body. Allergy sufferers should inquire about the outfit’s allergy-elimination service, which rids patients of a variety of symptoms through acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, and muscle-response testing, all without using medications or plotting pollen coups.
