The team of chiropractors at Kapsner Chiropractic Centers helps seek out and soothe the misalignments of the spine. They use detailed exams to target the subluxations that interfere with the nervous system and spark pain. Lead Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Kapsner boasts more than 30 years of experience. He leads a bilingual team offering multidimensional treatment plans that include massage therapy, postural rehabilitation, and spinal decompression.
Specialists in corporate-massage services, the team of therapists at Clear Spirit Corporate Massage helps keep Austin’s workforce relaxed with its repertoire of tension-releasing techniques and mobile massage chairs. When they aren’t destressing employees, the therapists are also available for Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages in their office outside of downtown Austin.
Austin Body Contouring has one goal: streamline their patients’ silhouettes. To that end, the staff employs a two-pronged approach of laser treatments and dietary supplements. They wield the beams of Zerona and LipoLaser 2000 systems, designed to flatten fat cells and burn calories, respectively. Curva supplements bolster weight-loss efforts with a blend of extracts—including ginkgo biloba and green tea—that help the circulatory and lymphatic systems dispose of excess fat and sort the body's recyclables into their proper bins.
Throughout her more than 25 years in practice, Doctor of Chiropractic Cynthia Schade has always aimed to treat more than the back. She thinks of each patient as a whole person, and that conscientious care shows in her methods. Two of her own staff members became health care practitioners as a result of her treatments: Kelly Grosch found relief from tennis elbow thanks to Dr. Schade's knowledge of the soft-tissue-mobilization method known as the Graston technique, and went on to become a chiropractor and master the technique herself.
Today, Dr. Schade and her staff at Active Life Wellness and Healthcare, including fellow chiropractor Cynthia Lara, ease clients’ aches and promote their wellness in a welcoming environment. Their careful adjustments and soothing massages can treat a variety of conditions, including injuries resulting from car accidents and neck pain resulting from chain mail ties.
After chest surgery, Marina Ginn suffered from terrible, lingering pain and could find no relief in Western or alternative medicine. Her mother recommended Alphabiotics after it relieved her own chronic back pain, and Marina was immediately an ache-free convert. She continued on to graduate from Alphabiotics Training Academy in Dallas and opened Alphabiotic Center in Austin.
Developed by the father-son team of Dr. Virgil Chrane and Dr. Michael Chrane, the practice of Alphabiotics aims to relieve stress and pain and balance bodies with a quick adjustment of the supine head. Practitioners of this therapy liken it to pressing the reset button on the body, clearing away tension, refueling energy levels, and causing internal clocks to stop flashing 12:00.
Doctor of Chiropractic Amy Hess's mission is to educate her patients about vertebral subluxation, which causes spinal bones to become misaligned, as well as about proper nutrition. But before she can do any of that, she needs to educate herself about the patient and attempt to determine the causes of their vertebral subluxations, so she asks them detailed questions about the sports they've been involved in, the number of car accidents they've been in, and if they've ever been a professional limbo dancer. Hess then takes the time to explain her services, such as thermography scans—which use digital thermal imaging to suss out pain—and ashiatsu massages—which blend deep-tissue, Swedish, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies and require Hess to walk over the patient's back. She also teaches her patients healthy eating habits during nutrition consultations and posts a healthy recipe every week on her Facebook page.
