Unless they're wizards, people don't restore their youthful looks by casting spells on their skin. Instead, they head to Aesthetica Med Spa, where Dr. David L. Sneed, Sharon M. Sneed, PhD, and their team of skin-care professionals work their own form of magic with services that defy aging. Photofacials, Juvederm injections, and laser skin resurfacing remove years from appearances without erasing those years' memories. Specialists also augment bodily fa?ades with everything from laser tattoo removal to lash tinting and lip augmentation.
Traditional medicine never quite did the trick for Nicole Lenffer. Prior to earning her acupuncture and herbalist licenses from the Texas Medical Board, she suffered from various health problems that never responded to her doctor's prescriptions. In 2000, she tried acupuncture on a whim. It left a deep impression, because not only did she feel better, she decided to abandon her desire to be a teacher in favor of focusing on traditional Oriental medicine.
Today, 10 years after first opening Natural Health Center of Austin, Nicole's commitment to acupuncture continues unabated. She begins each client relationship with a free consultation and Chinese Pulse Diagnosis, which helps her determine whether health conditions will respond to acupuncture and if patients are alive. Post-acupuncture, patients often find that the treatment yields the same results it did for Nicole, bringing relief from maladies such as allergies, fibromyalgia, and emotional imbalances.
