Q&A with Dr. Susan Duvé, Owner

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Chiropractic, Nutrition, Acupuncture, Biofeedback, and our new Tui Na Chinese Medical Massage are the specialties here. We also focus on treating the whole person and give a Comprehensive nutritional evaluation for every patient upon request. We evaluate blood chemistry, hair mineral analysis, ALCAT Food Sensitivity and Intolerance, and saliva hormone tests in order to teach our patients how to become healthy with food and nutrients. When one knows which foods adversely effect our health and which are missing from our diets, we can correct biochemistry and help the body heal itself. Our 21 Day Purification Program is our signature program and the beginning of this process. Many have recovered from conditions that their medical doctors have given up on or considered untreatable.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I developed a passion for healing work at a very early age caring for animals and helping others in need. I knew that I would be a healthcare practitioner. The accumulating passion is easy with over 19+ years of seeing so many people get relief from pain and discomfort with the help of Chinese herbs, homeopathy, nutrients, exercise, chiropractic, acupuncture, meditation, yoga, emotional freedom technique, biofeedback, or massage.

What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
We take our time and make every patient comfortable with their starting point for wellness recovery. We do not judge. We foster personal responsibility in a compassionate healing environment. We use humor and relatable stories to help our patients connect with us until they know that they are in the right place. Our practice is based on referrals and we value our positive reputation for observing miracles of health restoration on a regular basis. We sometimes hire from our recovered patient base and feel that they contribute first hand to our wellness story.

As the sun sets over South Padre Island, The Southern Wave makes its final voyage of the day, whisking up to 48 passengers across the pristine waters as they clink champagne glasses and toast to the beauty of the open water. As the star of Southern Wave Sailing Charters' fleet, the 48-foot catamaran sailing boat is perfect for a leisurely sail or snorkel trip, an afternoon of dolphin watching, or an evening of sunset gazing during the dinner cruise. Captains also charter boats privately, including the more intimate Southern Comfort boat, which welcomes up to 16 guests. Soft drinks are included with all tours and charter trips, and passengers are free to BYOB. For more independent exploration of the local waterways, customers can rent waverunners, kayaks, paddleboards, and paddleboats.

South Padre Island Watersports started in 2003, as a school dedicated to kiteboarding—a sport much like wakeboarding, except without the boat. Instead, the boarder gets pulled by a kite, powered by the breeze. At South Padre, this all takes place on the pristine Laguna Madre Bay.

The school has expanded since it was initially founded, too, to encompass gear rentals and myriad water sports. The shop's rental gear now spans sports from kayaking to stand-up paddleboarding, and its team of certified instructors teach lessons in a variety of aquatic sports, too.

Edible Arrangements' fresh, artful dipped-fruit boxes combine the aesthetic elements and emotive properties of floral arrangements with the juicy deliciousness and socially acceptable edibility of fruit. Delve into the depths of fruity expression with one of nine chocolate-dipped fruit boxes valued at $25 or less, such as chocolate-dipped apple wedges ($25), or the boxed 15-some of decadent fruit truffles ($25). On a holiday or any day, an Edible Arrangement can turn a frown into an upright grapefruit wedge, a tear into a three-tiered citrus structure, and a friend into still just a friend, but one with a sweet, balanced diet.

Set among stacked barrels and rough wood accents, Cowgirl Wannabe—the hip, younger sister of Taubert Farm & Ranch country store—marries the Old West with fresh looks to provide gear for rakish rancheras and steadfast stallion-steerers alike. On-trend T-shirts boast cowpoke twists ($40), such as bucking-bronco details or sparkly slogans including, “I’m your huckleberry,” and, “My other car is also a horse.” Blinged-out belt buckles, with embellishments such as turquoise-nugget beads and pearls (around $40), attract undercover uptown divas visiting the ranch as part of a movie-plot-forwarding saga. Brilliant beaded necklaces, most with sparkly and silver accents ($40+), double as luminous lariats for roping in attractive décolletage. Purses, sandals, flip-flops, and candles round out the offerings at Cowgirl Wannabe, along with handcrafted home goods from local artisans.
