Like personalities, no two homes are quite the same. The designers at Lush Livings take this for granted, which is why they spend so much effort poring over color schemes and furniture arrangements to find the best match for each home.
These designers even travel to homes themselves, carefully surveying the empty rooms while offering their clients tips for layout and decoration. Such consultations are a matter of course at Lush Livings, where you'll never have to settle for sort of right. The store's designers simply refuse to be satisfied until they've found the perfect custom fabrics for everything from drapes and rugs to suspended sleep cocoons.
Shady Acres Pet Ranch is more like a farm than a typical boarding facility. On three acres of land, lush, green grass awaits hounds who can frolic in three play yards dappled with sunlight thanks to the property's 100-year-old oak trees. Pups spend their daylight hours playing with similarly-sized friends under the watchful eyes of pet-friendly staff members. Then, as the sun sets, they can hunker down in heated and air-conditioned closed-door suites that offer privacy for dogs who keep diaries. Though farm-like in many ways, the ranch does boast a number of modern amenities where it counts, including having a CPR– and First Aid–certified caretaker.
Flourish is a clinic that focuses on noninvasive aesthetic treatments. Their LipoLaser treatments, for example, slim physiques with laser light rather than incisions, shrinking fat cells in areas such as the back, thighs, and arms. The clinic's whole body vibration treatments further tone physiques. For each session, clients stand on a platform that vibrates vertically and stimulates reflexive muscle contractions, strengthening core muscles. For a brighter complexion, meanwhile, staff aesthetician Linda Jenkins offers a natural alternative to a facelift: her assorted botanical facials can combat signs of aging with an antioxidant-rich mask made from organic berries. Flourish also offers a variety of additional services including facials, massages, vibration plates, and infrared saunas.

The board-certified ocular experts at Hill Country Eye Center sharpen vision with LASIK and PRK outpatient procedures to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After greeting patients with a consultation and a series of coded blinks to set them at ease, the LASIK procedure begins with a laser creating a circular flap on the surface of the cornea. The doctor folds the flap back to allow a cool laser to reshape the cornea, refocusing entering light in a process designed to vastly improve vision and eliminate the need to wear contact lenses and socket-size crystal balls. Alternatively, PRK applies the laser's sculptural powers directly to the surface of the cornea, with no need to cut a flap. Patients can click here to learn more about the procedure.
