Tranquil Waters Spa combines the refreshing powers of a day spa with the healing prowess of a wellness center to create a haven of whole body well-being. Specialists keep exteriors shiny and new with aesthetic treatments that range from traditional facials and AHA chemical peels to aromatherapy and bath-salt treatments. Resident therapist Dr. Lew Huff flaunts holistic regimens focused on treating the root cause of ailments and not just their symptoms through painless acupuncture, chiropractic care, hypnotherapy, and nutritional counseling. A multidisciplinary assessment can also help determine the path to wellness as a slew of specialists—such as acupuncturists, structural therapists, and aromatherapists—heal from every angle like a Neosporin hot tub. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Massage Therapy School in Houston unleashes its students inside the spa to learn a range of massage modalities, as its interns—all of whom have completed at least half the hours required to become professional spa experts—bring their newly acquired skills to the treatment table.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
The Bilingual Education Institute, accredited by ACCET, uses a modern curriculum to instill Spanish- and English-speaking skills and a multicultural approach to communication in its students. For more than a quarter century, instructors with at least a bachelor's degree and two years of prior teaching experience have imbued students with skills to help them get around in foreign countries or confuse their pets. Instructors guide quality multicultural programs for individuals, small groups, and government service programs in the Houston area, hosting private and group lessons as well as online instruction. These programs help to instill confidence, initiate conversation, develop flexibility in communication, and prepare students to sneak into the UN. The Bilingual Education Institute also works closely with students wishing to learn English as a second language. Innovative projects ranging from the Refugee Education Program to the Intensive English Program immerse students until they learn to converse and express their thoughts.

Whenever violent outbreaks and natural disasters strike, ISI Training Center's team of security specialists mobilizes on the ground to protect private properties and individuals caught in high-risk areas.

Since 1993, instructors have prepped soldiers with mission-specific combat training at a 25-acre facility that incorporates role-playing and simulators that recreate realistic combat environments. Law-enforcement officers and first responders undergo similarly experiential training to enrich their tactical techniques for handling hostile conditions.
