At three locations across the Metroplex area, licensed massage therapists at The Massage Co. have loosened muscles and reduced stress during more than 40,000 massages. They customize seven different modalities, ranging from the targeted finger pressure of trigger-point therapy to the ancient art of reflexology, which is designed to address health issues throughout the whole body via channels in the feet. Massage therapy's myriad health benefits include better circulation, improved flexibility, and an enhanced capacity for creative thought, which comes in handy when converting your twin mattress to a king-size using nothing but bubble wrap.
At HD Laser Center, experienced physicians wield proprietary laser technology in an attempt to treat deep muscle and joint pains without the use of drugs. Customers don protective glasses before the FDA-cleared laser's large treatment beam works to increase blood flow and provide temporary relief from pains, muscle spasms, or stiffness as cells attempt to convert the infrared energy into metabolic energy.
Massage by Galen's licensed therapists tailor each massage to their client's needs. This might mean more focus on the back, neck, or legs if that's where the issues lie, or a blending of different massage styles in order to address multiple concerns at once. The staff here is well-versed in multiple styles of bodywork: Swedish for stress, hot stone for tension, and sports massage for injuries. Other treatments include Thai massage and reflexology, as well as portable chair massages, which the staff can bring to treat sore backs at any workplace, festival, shopping mall, or limbo tournament.
Dr. Gary Martin and Dr. Brandon Bonds calls his clinic Sports & Spine Chiropractic, but that doesn't mean he only treats athletes and achy backs. In fact, after he uses x-rays to identify inner issues, the doctor can design a treatment plan to relieve neck, head, arm, and leg pain. Such a regimen might include massage and manual therapy to relax tight muscles or electrical stimulation to improve muscle mobility. He treats other ailments, too, including migraines, sleep disorders, and the carpel tunnel syndrome that results from knitting a blanket for a chilly mountain.
Dedicated to the privacy and comfort of its clients, Alazan Care eliminates any embarrassment associated with colon hydrotherapy thanks to a carefully designed treatment plan. Irrigation sessions begin in complete privacy, when clients insert the individually packaged, sterile, and lubricated tube on their own and without anyone else in the room. Once they’re covered up, the client calls in the certified therapist with a click of a button for some verbal coaching. The therapist explains how the warm rush of filtered water will break down and expel waste and stays in the room to monitor the process. The therapist also will step out if the client desires more privacy.
For those not quite ready for hydrotherapy, Alazan Care offers plenty of other healing services. The center’s licensed massage therapists soothe muscles and joints with relaxing Swedish, therapeutic, and maternity massages. They also administer reflexology, a method centered solely on the body’s pressure points. By massaging specific areas of the hands and feet, the reflexologist eliminates nervous-system tension and enhances blood circulation.
Aesthetic Laser Academy has two kinds of clients. The first: those who walk through the doors in search of professional med-spa services, such as chemical peels and laser hair removal. The second: those in search of sweet, sweet knowledge.
The staff caters to both. Cofounder Michelle De Leon (the Academy's resident "laser diva") and medical directors Dr. Ann Nolen and Dr. Dustin Ray lead a staff of laser specialists, educators, and aestheticians who tend to clients with high-powered tools and elixirs. They also help create more aesthetic professionals, offering training programs for new students, classes for people looking to add new skills, and a night course that lets students fit their education into already-busy lives.
