The Healing Center embraces the Six Steps to Wellness program, using it to create custom treatments that help patients achieve total physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Doctor of Chiropractic John A. Morrow first consults with patients to determine which wellness area needs work. He corrects spinal misalignments with the Adjustor system to improve structural issues, evaluates diet deficiencies to optimize nutrition, and uses biofeedback to identify and eliminate allergies and sensitivities.
For outer wellness, The Healing Center offers noninvasive body sculpting with the Zerona laser and teeth whitening. All treatments are performed inside the cozy 8,000-square-foot facility, which feels more like a spa than a traditional wellness clinic, with its infrared sauna, exercise machines, detoxification room, and peaceful kazoo background music.
The Joint has a simple mission: 'to improve people's lives with routine and affordable chiropractic care.' Their team of skilled chiropractors operate on an appointment-free basis, helping to ensure that people can receive treatment despite busy schedules, and membership programs help to keep costs low.
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.
The mission of Energee Massage is right in the name: to help clients regain their healthy vigor. Under the direction of founder Dr. John Boren, a skilled staff provides both fitness and wellness services in one spacious building. The treatments themselves continue the active theme—15-minute express workouts, for example, rely on whole-body vibration platforms and other specialized equipment designed to efficiently tone muscles. Guests seeking relaxation can opt for a classic massage, recline atop a dry HydroMassage table, or kick back in a RoboMassage chair programmed to feel empathy. An onsite infrared sauna promotes detoxification and works to burn calories, and weight-loss programs provide nutritional guidance. No matter what the treatment, the wellness professionals aim to make Energee Massage a welcoming place to begin or continue on the road to health.
"My purpose is to help as many people possible to get well naturally. It's what fuels my fire," expounds Dr. Derek Maxson, founder of Maxson Chiropractic and Wellness. The embers of his chiropractic passion were first kindled in childhood; suffering from year-round allergies and sinus problems and living through a "fog of medication," Maxson was elated to finally find holistic relief through chiropractic care. After earning his doctorate of chiropractic from Parker University College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Dr. Maxson began his mission to free others from the burdensome haze of chronic pain through gentle spinal adjustments and other natural methods. Each day in his office, he assesses spinal health with an array of techniques and tools, including x-rays that can help locate fractures, identify long-term spinal degeneration, and tailor form-fitting skeleton costumes.
To augment his pain-relieving adjustments with a dose of relaxation, Dr. Maxon directs patients to his office's licensed massage therapist, Natalie Tyler, a self-described "fixer" who nonetheless believes in the body's natural ability to heal itself. The therapeutic kneads of Natalie and the other licensed massage therapists can help jump-start the healing process and strengthen the immune system while freeing the mind from daily stressors.
Donovan Greer spent seven seasons playing football in the NFL. After hanging up his shoulder pads, he returned to his native Houston to put his athletic ability to work in another way—as owner of Pro Dynamic Fitness. Adults can work out in myriad classes, becoming more flexible in yoga, gaining endurance in spin class, or building core muscles in TRX. Kids, too, can work on fitness in personal and group sessions. The gym also offers training for young athletes hoping to win gold medals or young mathletes hoping to win Fields Medals.
At Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center, practitioners take the time to educate their patients on how the human body works before launching into one of a variety of therapies to treat patients’ pain. Dr. Joe Clinton and his team collaborate with patients to identify the root of discomfort, then work to ease aches with traditional or high-tech therapies. Acupuncture treatments target energy pathways with hair-thin needles, and ultrasound and interferential stimulation sends therapeutic jolts of electricity directly into the muscles. Doctors can also conduct postural screening to counteract the side effects of slouching, including back pain and just missing the cutoff to ride the tilt-a-whirl.
