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.
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 Laser Lipo and Lapex LipoLaser systems, designed to flatten fat cells and burn calories, respectively.
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.

Austin Spine & Therapy's main focus is to help clients overcome chronic pains and begin living healthier and more fulfilling lives. It's a tall order, so the team specializes in using personalized combinations of chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and therapeutic massage.
The center's chiropractors focus on structural alignment in particular, seeking out the wayward vertebrae or joints that run roughshod over mobility and hamper the healing process. With the help of x-rays, MRIs, and other diagnostic tools, the team treats symptoms as well as underlying causes. Interferential current therapy, for example, delivers tiny electrical impulses to the tissues surrounding sprains or muscle spasms to trigger the release of endorphins to get rid of pain. In addition to subtly massaging muscles, tendons, and ligaments, therapeutic ultrasounds can also help by decreasing swelling and simultaneously increasing circulation to pain-stricken areas.
But it's not all futuristic tech. Licensed massage therapist, Celest Siebenaler, works from a roster of modalities to customize sessions. She can oust chronic pain with deep tissue massage, ease the joint stress experienced by pregnant women with pre-natal therapy, and melt icy hearts with hot-stone sessions.
The team of chiropractors at Kapsner Chiropractic Centers helps seek out and soothe the misalignments of the spine.

He leads a bilingual team offering multidimensional treatment plans that include massage therapy, postural rehabilitation, and spinal decompression.
