Dr. Dana McKirahan, DC, PA sets backs straight using a variety of techniques at Lordex Spine Institute of Conroe. For some patients, he recommends sessions on the Lordex Lumbar Spine System, which helps ease lower back and leg pain with inverted or horizontal decompression and strengthening exercises. For others, he prescribes traditional adjustments and manipulations to treat misaligned bones and joints, instead of gluing one’s hands to monkey bars and hanging in the playground all day. Massages can be either therapeutic or relaxing, serving to treat chronic conditions or simply erase tension.
Doctor of Chiropractic Ken Perkins works to treat the root causes of maladies such as headaches, carpal tunnel, lower-back pain, and sciatica through evaluation and careful adjustment of the spine.

With more than 15 years of experience, Premier Pilates’s head instructor, Rosa McGill, is very familiar with the benefits of Pilates: better range of motion, increased flexibility, better balance and posture, and a stronger core. To help people achieve those benefits, she and her team lead one-on-one and small-group classes with mats and equipment such as Reformers and spine correctors. The staff strive to make Premier Pilates a place for holistic health, offering access to an infrared massage bed, which uses deep-penetrating heat to relax muscles or help snowmen slim down as wheels made of jade roll up and down the body.
Orthossage leaves no doubt that its therapists know what they’re doing: every week, they participate in continuing-education courses to stay up to snuff on their craft. That dedication enables the Orthossage team to deliver a wide array of modalities, including an advanced orthopedic technique that focuses specifically on muscle attachments. No matter the type of massage a client chooses, though, Orthossage enhances every visit with aromatherapy, topical muscle pain reliever, and steamed towels. The facility also provides 3D anatomical photos so clients can see what groups of muscles get worked on without having to dissect a mannequin.
Owner and acupuncturist Dan Yun began his healing journey studying Western medicine until he met his mother-in-law, Dr. Wang Rim Lee, a well-known South Korean doctor whose Western practice was enhanced by Chinese treatments such as acupuncture and colon hydrotherapy. An inspired Yun began studying Chinese medicine, and he opened D-A-N Wellness Clinic in 2010 to share his knowledge with others. D-A-N Wellness Clinic focuses on three wellness areas: detox, anti-aging, and natural healing.
Due to his multifaceted training, Yun has the unique ability to describe the workings of Chinese medicine using Western terminology. After explaining that chi is the electromagnetic force that runs through every atom, he uses acupuncture to remove roadblocks and traffic cones in the chi pathways and restore balance to the body as a whole. According to Yun, acupuncture can treat almost any condition and is especially effective for pain management, enabling many patients to live free of medication for the first time.
The clinic also offers colon hydrotherapy, often in tandem with acupuncture. Yun says the unwell body is like an infected computer: Acupuncture acts as antivirus software, preventing the resurgence of infection, after colon hydrotherapy flushes out harmful substances before they can steal the client’s contact list. Patients often feel reenergized after treatments due to the removal of toxins and dose of hydration.
