At Shea Essence Day Spa, the noise and stress of the outside world melt into the spa's signature organic shea butter. The product exemplifies the business' core belief: that beauty and wellness go hand-in-exfoliated-hand. Aestheticians use the body product during treatments such as the Herbs and Organic Shea Butter Deluxe Manicure or the Back Facial Treatment. During both, the shea butter exfoliates and moisturizes skin, rendering it healthier and more youthful looking.
Other treatments eschew the shea butter for hydrating creams, mud body wraps, or body products designed for specific clientele, such as men or expectant mothers. The spa also houses an infrared sauna where infrared heat travels deep within the body to promote blood flow and a detoxifying sweat.
Imagine losing all of your hair—what would that do to your self-confidence and quality of life? With the belief that hair is much more than a fashion accessory, Untourage Salon Retreat owner Tanissa Carmon uses custom-fitted cranial hair prostheses to help clients to feel good about their appearance when dealing with hair loss, whether due to illness or heredity.
This dedication to giving people peace of mind also shows in Tanissa's other salon services, which range from stylish cuts to smoothing keratin treatments to seamless extensions—all of which begin with a complimentary consultation to determine each client's preferred look and salon nickname. As clients settle into cozy styling chairs, the 800-square-foot space reverberates with the sounds of experienced stylists snipping, smoothing, and lengthening 'dos backed by a soundtrack of instrumental jazz music.
Lisa Patel was at a crossroads; she knew she wanted to pursue a career in healthcare, but she didn’t know which one. After getting into a car wreck that injured her back, she discovered the benefits of chiropractic medicine and, ultimately, the solution to her dilemma. She went on to pursue a doctorate from Texas Chiropractic College and today treats all manner of pain and ailments with spinal adjustments, acupuncture, and rehabilitation techniques at Precision Chiropractic. She works alongside a team of massage therapists, who strive to complement her practice with a variety of bodywork techniques designed to recalibrate the muscles of semiprofessional athletes, marathon runners, and chauffeurs who have to pack up their car and take it home in their backpack after every shift.
A massage can improve range of motion, reduce tension, and even tackle more complicated ailments such as depression and disco fever. That's where Massage Mind & Body Healing comes in. After a client is led to a private suite, a licensed massage therapist blends techniques such as Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to promote full-body healing and wellness. Hot-stone therapy and reflexology are also available.

Under the expert guidance of their respective doctors, the staff at each of these medical centers harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
