As a child visiting his grandfather's small clinic in Garland, Dr. Eric Wu witnessed the rejuvenating benefits of traditional acupuncture therapy firsthand. Then later in life, when an automobile accident had left him with chronic pain, Dr. Wu found relief in the form of chiropractic care. Because of these past experiences, Dr. Wu embraces both approaches at his practice, knowing that a combination of chiropractic sessions and acupuncture treatments tends to have a synergistic effect upon a person's health.
Chiropractic care and acupuncture share the common goal of jump-starting the body's natural healing capabilities, albeit by different means. During chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Wu checks for any misaligned vertebrae, which can place pressure on the spinal cord and interfere with the nervous system's function. Correcting these alignment issues facilitates uninterrupted communication between organs and helps alleviate the constant aches and fatigue that can interfere with everyday life. Alternately, acupuncture treatments focus on points of stagnation in the flow of the body's natural energies. These blockages can be removed by inserting needles, applying fingertip pressure, or using electrical stimulation. Dr. Wu specializes in needle-free acupuncture, opting instead to stimulate pressure points with a low electrical current, making the treatment ideal for children and adults afraid of needles. Needle-free treatment is also helpful for treatment of sensitive points on the head and face. Both chiropractic sessions and acupuncture appointments promote a sense of holistic wellbeing, without resorting to unnecessary medications, surgeries, or tongue-depressor prescriptions. Instead, they aim to relieve existing symptoms while also bolstering the body's ability to stave off future complications.

After completing her massage studies at Texas Healing Arts Institute, Kristen Tagle tempered her skills in the fires of a local chiropractic office. She spent this time using modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and prenatal to treat muscular dysfunction while developing an understanding of how each helped soothe particular aspects of muscular stress. Now the owner of Heart & Sole Massage, Kristen works alongside therapists who demonstrate a similar commitment to these modalities and devise treatment strategies that address clients’ particular aches and pains. Initial consultations allow staffers to review each visitor’s medical history, past injuries, physical conditions, and ill-fitting nicknames, and after the sessions they can recommend exercises and self-care therapies to perform at home. A deep-blue couples room, meanwhile, allows those celebrating a date night or a platonic date night to enjoy the soothing power of massage together.

Today, he practices these same noninvasive treatments, such as spinal adjustments and massages, that helped heal his wife's migraines.
