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.

Brandi Chase, the owner of The Athlete Stop, specializes in repairing people. She assembled a deep bench of medical and physical specialists, from doctors and chiropractors to dieticians and massage therapists. They all combine services to help athletes overcome injuries and get back to the sports they love. The team performs all their services in a heavily sports-themed clinic, complete with memorabilia-bedecked walls and an ever-blinking slideshow of patient accomplishments. Of course, the clinic is not without the staff's own personal touches; Brandi and company love the orange, and painted several whole rooms in the color, presumably to help them imagine what it's like to live inside a tiger.
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.
Woodlands Integrative Medicine Associates' certified medical staff helps to contour and fine-tune physiques through comprehensive health care. Since opening in 2004, the center has tightened and toned bodies through cellulite-reducing Endermologie and VelaShape II treatments approved by the FDA. The center also helps to relieve chronic pain by realigning clients' energy with acupuncture or correcting posture with chiropractic care that follows the Lordex system. Developed after 15 years of research, the Lordex system targets lumbar muscles by placing the spinal joint in traction and gently decompressing nerves and disks in the lower back, allowing an increase of circulation to the aching areas and back tattoos.
"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.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Devin Parrish, it is easy to remember the perspective of a patient. For years he suffered with a herniated disk, but refused surgery because of the risks involved. He developed a treatment expressly designed to help move the disk into a more comfortable position while eliminating the need for pills and scalpels. Many of the noninvasive techniques he used on himself help his patients. Decompression therapy gently elongates the spine, removing the pressure of slipped disks while drawing in water and oxygen.
As a former accountant, the chiropractic doctor also has a keen eye for detail that compels him to find out what’s going on before administering any treatments. He begins all appointments with a 20-minute consultation and exam, combs through health histories, and discusses the patient’s issue while manually feeling for abnormalities along the spine. After he memorizes each vertebrae’s nickname, he further investigates with advanced detection equipment such as MRIs and x-rays. With this information, he and the patient work eye-to-eye in developing a treatment plan designed for their conditions.
