The chiropractic professionals at Texas Pain & Wellness work to prevent injury and illness so that patients can fully participate in life. The specialists accomplish this by evaluating each person as a whole, investigating age, lifestyle, diet, and fashion sense while rotating the patient on a Lazy Susan. After pinpointing the underlying cause of any pain or ailments, Dr. Alwyn Lorenzo develops a personalized wellness plan that incorporates various services and techniques. In addition to spinal adjustments and massages, the clinic offers New Age remedies including sonic vibration therapy, which aggressively wiggles the body to simulate anaerobic and aerobic exercise.
The sizzling sound of fajita platters carried through Fogata’s festive dining room is softened by the gentle babbling of three indoor waterfalls and live music on Thursday and Friday nights. As parties share margaritas and tasty Mexican dishes, a wall-size projector screen displays sports games or what may appear to be a giant talking burrito to especially hungry diners. A recipient of the Fort Worth Weekly's Critic's Choice award, Fogata's specialty queso is flambéed tableside to melt around beef, chorizo, or shrimp, and guacamole is also smashed tableside to ensure fresh, custom flavors.
Analyte Health's staff of certified phlebotomists works to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases by offering affordable screening to patients at more than 30 Houston-area locations.

If necessary, fully trained doctors and medical professionals are on hand to discuss treatment options.
Upon first meeting licensed massage therapist Charles Hannington, one can be forgiven for not taking note of his smooth and dexterous hands. His bright smile draws the eyes upward and reflects his uncommon enthusiasm for life—much of which he derives from meeting new people and sharing his skills with them. Charles uses massage techniques to achieve his goal of bringing others closer not only to physical health but also to a profound acknowledgement of their own humanity.
At Charles’s eponymous Hannington Massage, 16 distinct modalities assist him in achieving this admittedly ambitious goal. From the firm and focused pressures of deep-tissue massage to the high-speed knuckleballs thrown at backs during sports massages, he finds unique ways to communicate the benefits of massage to diverse clientele. When his own nimble fingers are not enough, Charles enhances the efficacy of their treatments with heated pebbles, soothing aromatherapy, and hot towels. He prides himself on customizing treatments to each client’s individual needs and even dispatches outcall services to those who prefer the serene ambiance of their own Batcaves.
Dr. Richard T. Ethridge, voted by his peers to be one of Fort Worth, Texas magazine's Top Doctors of 2012, has not only an impressive educational background and hundreds of successful surgeries under his belt, but a strong desire to help others. He strives daily to help his patients achieve their physical dreams with procedures such as face-lifts, liposuction, and breast augmentation. He also beautifies clients with skincare products and glitter stickers, as well as aesthetic services such as spa facials and laser hair removal.
In addition to helping patients at his practice, Dr. Ethridge helps those outside his practice by participating in Austin Smiles, a charitable organization that provides reconstructive plastic surgery to children suffering from cleft palates and lips.
Drs. Alan Robbins and Alan Ettinger take aim at unwelcome nail fungus and yeast with advanced laser technologies. Microscopic fungus, or onychomycosis, causes toenails to become thick, brittle, and discolored, taking all the fun out of sandal wearing and grape stomping. By carefully calibrating laser technologies such as the Noveon NailLaser, which boasts an 85 percent success rate, the staff restores nails to their former health. After finishing each course of treatment, ClearNailz's podiatry posse furnishes patients with information on long-term foot hygiene and future fungus prevention.
