Q&A with Dr. Susan Duv?, 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.

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.

SwimSpot brings high fashion poolside by amassing a collection of designer bikini and one-piece swimsuits by brands such as Athena, Guess, and Nautica. Each swimsuit and cover-up incorporates contemporary trends such as asymmetrical cuts or tropical colours to create stylish silhouettes, and a fit-specialist service provides body-shape searches and remote one-on-one discussions with experts to find a flattering suit for any shape. Lauded in the pages of People Style Watch, Lucky, and Seventeen, an online bikini builder enables the beach bound to build their own ensemble by mixing and matching tops and bottoms using a tool that yields more than 1,000 possible combinations. In addition to providing detailed descriptions and material breakdowns, each swimsuit offered in the online store is modeled in a video that offers a 360-degree view, allowing customers to get a better idea of what they’ll look like as they run into the surf or slowly back away from a sleeping bear.
