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.
To Dan Kim, a red mango is something truly special. The fruit only becomes that color for a very brief time, when it's most ripe, most delicious, and most nutritious. This became an allegory for Dan, a frozen yogurt enthusiast, who was conceptualizing his first yogurt shop. He opened the first location in 2007, vowing to use all-natural ingredients that, like the red mango, are both tasty and healthy. His commitment to conscientious snacking certainly caught on, as the brand has since expanded to more than 200 locations throughout North and South America. In 2011, Red Mango took top honors for frozen yogurt shops and for healthy options in a Zagat poll.
In addition to being all-natural, Red Mango's award-winning yogurt satisfies a range of diets by being gluten-free, kosher, and low-fat or non-fat. Each of the nearly 50 flavors, which range from green tea to dulce de leche, contains calcium, protein, and immune-boosting probiotics. Depending on the location, people can serve themselves or order from the full-service counter as they concoct sundaes crowned with anything from fresh fruit to peanut butter cups. The menu includes more than just fro-yo sundaes, however?it also features yogurt parfaits, Skinny Sorbettos, and fruit or boba smoothies. In addition to developing secret handshakes with their favorite yogurt taps, regular visitors can sign up for the Club Mango rewards program to receive special offers and discounts.
Last Call Bar and Grill keeps the taps flowing late into the night with pints of Guinness, Blue Moon, Coors Light, Budweiser, and Rolling Rock. Dozens of bottles on the liquor shelves include Crown Royal, Jameson, Southern Comfort, Bacardi, and Smirnoff?all of which can be served solo or mixed into a cocktail. Inside the kitchen, chefs make half-pound burger patties from scratch and grill chicken breasts. Both sandwiches are customizable with more than 20 toppings, including saut?ed mushrooms, fried onions, and bacon. On select nights, a DJ spins tunes in the corner while diners kick back, relax, and play a few rounds of darts or pin the tail on the anthropomorphized burger.
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.
