Bordered by a dark hardwood floor and amber walls warmed by low light, the lobby of Bella Pella Medical Spa cultivates a serene feeling even before treatments start. Velvet chaise longues, a small waterfall, and glowing bouquets of light-tipped stems also occupy the room, lulling guests into a tranquil state that continues in the treatment rooms. There, services as varied as hot-stone massages and laser aesthetics help visitors feel and look their best.
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.
The Zen Den's mission is to help clients unwind completely, much like the world's largest ball of yarn after its meeting with the world's largest kitten. That mission is accomplished in each of its services, which include energy balancing sessions, therapeutic spa services, personalized yoga instruction, and an on-site counselor. However, it is most evident in its signature, most sought after massage treatment, My Zen Myokinesthetic Massage. This 75-minute sojourn into relaxation includes a relaxing massage that employs Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques to quiet aches and pains, plus reflex-point therapy on the hands, feet, ears, and scalp. For good measure, the massage also includes hot towels, hot stones, and an aroma of the client's choice.

On the surface, Anew MediSpa looks like an upscale spa, with a homey waiting room decked out in hardwood furniture and sunny yellow paint. The services fit the bill, too: traditional facials, waxing, and massage therapy among them. However, the center boasts a medical director, Dr. Ashley Chin, who personally administers all injections of Botox and Juvéderm. It's her medical expertise, paired with the center's state-of-the-art technology, that gives Anew its edge.
Dr. Chin oversees the safety of the med spa's laser treatments, which include hair and spider-vein removal, skin tightening, photofacials, and acne treatments. Despite the reliance on technology, Dr. Chin and her team of aestheticians are personally invested in each treatment, maintaining a professional-and-inviting atmosphere that makes clients feel at ease.
