Employing an array of soft-tissue and deep-tissue techniques, Professional Wellness Therapy nudges weary muscles back into place with clinical and rehabilitative massage. One of the licensed therapists will send your contractile tissues down a sinuously lazy river of relaxation with a Swedish massage or stimulate skeletal muscle with the soft-tissue pressure of a neuromuscular massage. A pregnancy massage reduces tension and bolsters circulation for moms-to-be; fibromyalgia therapy hones in on tender joints, tendons, and soft tissues; and trigger-point therapy instigates a high-noon showdown with aches. With flexible scheduling and dedicated appointments, Professional Wellness Therapy promises no overlapping or double-booking, even of multiarmed octopus therapists.
The thrilling courses at Daredevil Ziplines were originally built for the adrenaline junkies on the finale of the action series The Controller: Medal of Honor Warfighter. Happy shrieks now spiral out from members of the general public as they hit the 50 mile-per-hour speeds experienced by the stars of the show. The Dare Ya! ride whisks participants downhill for 600 feet before being stopped abruptly on the bungee braking system, which then sends them whipping out over a lake and stopping gently. They then glide down among sweet-smelling pine boughs and make a soft landing.
The Aerial Challenge combines a zipline with an aerial obstacle course, including a suspended log walk, ladders, a swinging bridge and platform, and rope walks. Riders can end the challenge with a short walk to a bridge overlooking the Tuck spring, which flows from the roots of a century old oak tree. Streams babble above and below the ground, carving the limestone into organic-looking curlicues covered with moss and ferns like somebody who won’t get off the Jurassic Park ride.
Willow Day Spa owner Brooke Hodge has every corner of beauty covered. She is not only a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician but also a NovaLash eyelash extensionist and is trained in oncology spa treatments. Since opening the doors to Willow Day Spa, Brooke and her team of beauticians have relied on all-natural product lines, Tecniche and Pevonia, to gently yet effectively keep complexions looking young. The spa's aestheticians call upon seven different facial treatments, including LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, and remove unwanted hairs with antibacterial Nufree wax, which doesn’t irritate the skin by leaving behind a residue or its pager number. Cellulite and dehydration are banished with the help of mango-passion yogurt and green coffee-infused body treatments, and the menu's organic airbrush spray tan is designed to last for up to one week.
Brooke is able to help cancer patients and survivors maintain their appearance with oncology spa treatments that include reflexology and a facial. Her treatments combine the Morag Currin Method of Oncology Esthetics with fragrance-free Tecniche products. The beauty haven also outfits clients with a wide range of Raquel Welch and Eva Gabor wigs during private, complimentary consultations.
Education is key for board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marcus Crawford. After graduating from Baylor College of Medicine, he went on to receive extensive training in cutting-edge reconstructive techniques at MD Anderson Cancer Center, which eventually led him to volunteer for a mission with Operation Smile in Lima, Peru, where he worked to repair cleft lips and other palate deformities in children. He also believes his patients should be properly educated about the procedures they undergo at his namesake office, and so Dr. Crawford and his team discuss each treatment option during a thorough consultation that reveals each patient’s beauty needs and aesthetic goals, and chart the best course of treatment.
Along with cosmetic surgery for the face and body, Crawford Plastic Surgery also offers nonsurgical med-spa services that include microdermabrasion and wrinkle-reducing dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm. The office is also outfitted with disposable permanent-makeup equipment, which technicians use to tattoo organic, cosmetic-colored ink onto skin, thus defining the brows, lips, and eyelids, or camouflaging scars caused by a malfunctioning magical wand.
