Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth McFadden tailors each of her massages to the client she's working with?whether she's de-stressing physiques with Swedish kneads, or doling out the more intense pressure of deep-tissue and trigger-point treatments. She even customizes her sessions' scents, adding complimentary aromatherapy upon request.
Throughout her two-year stint at a cardiac rehab clinic, Lydia Hernandez met countless patients who suffered from stress and persistent pain. Feeling she could be doing more to help these patients, she founded her own private massage practice, which has since expanded to include a number of massage therapists plus an extra-terrestrial receptionist. The multifaceted staff is proficient in 14 different types of massage modalities. Some methods, such as Swedish, hot-stone, and couples' treatments, are focused on general relaxation and overall well-being, whereas modalities such as deep-tissue, pain-relief, and neuromuscular massage are perfect for those dealing with aches caused by nagging sports injuries and bad backs.
Many people would rather not turn to drugs to treat certain aches and physical maladies. Chiropractic massage offers an alternative method of healing that can help improve your overall well being without relying solely on medication. There are many benefits to chiropractic and massage treatments.
Massage practitioner Lora Barragan combines her licensed training and intuitive hands and elbows to smooth away stress and soreness. Lora's most popular remedy is the wellness massage, a one-hour series of sequentially administered top-to-toes relief. Soothing kneads execute a full-body takeover, progressing across the back, shoulders, arms, legs, feet, upper chest, and head in a full-scale tension attack.
Licensed acupuncture practitioners Joanna Lei Shelton and Molly McMichael gently stimulate acupuncture points with fine filiform needles in treatments targeted to each client's specific health concerns. Patrons relax on comfortable tables nestled in quiet, private rooms with individual temperature controls that keep patients comfortable and able to continue pranks on Arctic explorers. The session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the client's health concerns, and the practitioner draws on extensive experience to tenderly insert the sterile, disposable needles, which stimulate trigger points. The acupuncturist communicates with the patient during the process to keep the treatment as pain-free as possible and cause only sensations of tingling, pressure, or light quilting.
The Chinese mapped a network of channels through which energy, or qi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. Lisa Schlegel, founder of Acupuncture & Natural Healing Therapies, taps into these channels to unlock your body's natural ability to heal itself. A Texas-licensed, nationally board-certified practitioner, Schlegel specializes in needle methods that combine gentleness, efficiency, and immaculate blindfolded aim when affixing donkey tails.
