Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center's specialists demonstrate a skill and efficacy that earned their work a nod from Goldline Research which named the center one of the country's leading LASIK providers for three years in a row. People and cyclopes from all across the nation come for treatment from proficient doctors and certified surgeons, who use FDA-approved Allegretto Wave Eye-Q lasers to correct vision. Before the procedure, patients must undergo a complimentary consultation to determine their candidacy and favorite tunes to blast on the stereo during the procedure. During the blade-free procedure, a certified surgeon spends 30–60 seconds reshaping the cornea to match the patient's specific prescription. Patients can expect to return to their normal tasks the day after the procedure and swing by the center a week later for a brief post-op checkup and eye-strengthening Magic Eye book.

The duo behind Odara Salon and Spa – one hairstylist, Amanda, and one aesthetician, ReQuesia – began their partnership as an on-location beauty team. They worked on-location services for local weddings and Quinceanera celebrations to keep revelers looking their best. After the demand for their services grew, they eventually decided to set down roots, and acquired a space to practice their face-flattering trades.
Their cooperative efforts continue to bear fruit, as one focuses on trimming, coloring, and styling hair, and the other on make-up application and smoothing skin. The stylist uses Paul Mitchell-recommended Awapuhi Luxury hair care products for all her services, while the aesthetician swears by the DermaQuest Skincare line. As an added bonus, they throw in scalp massages and shampoo with haircuts and upper body massages with spa services.
When non-life-threatening medical trouble arises, MedSpring’s immediate-care physicians provide quick treatment without the long waits of the emergency room or the difficulty in securing last-second appointments with a primary-care physician. The center's medical staff prescribes treatments for allergies and coughs, treats fever and flu, and tends to broken bones and sprains. Walk-ins and same-day appointments accommodate all manner of unexpected injuries, and next-day appointments accommodate injuries foretold by fortune cookies. Complimentary beverages and snacks nourish family members as they await their loved ones' treatments. Patients, meanwhile, are tended to in private suites furnished with couches, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and coloring tables to amuse children. Unlike a search-and-rescue st. bernard, MedSpring accepts most major insurance plans. Patients are also asked to fill out a brief written survey and with their permission, MedSpring posts good and bad reviews to their website.

JoLynn Swain doesn’t subscribe to the one-size-fits-all model of massage. The licensed and nationally certified therapist believes in the body’s ability to communicate its needs, and as an intuitive massage artist, her hands pick up on tension, stress, and pain and tailor their movements in accordance. Working within the framework of treatments such as hot-stone, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage, JoLynn listens to each muscle's patterns and deciphers its thick Texas accent to deliver the best possible treatment and address underlying issues such as past injuries or misalignment. In addition to her custom services, she also excels at reflexology as well as oncology massages, which, with a doctor’s consent, can help clients find emotional and physical comfort while undergoing chemo or radiology.
Dr. Sherry Durrett and the team at AllergiCare Relief Centers takes a homeopathic approach to fighting allergies at AllergiCare Relief Centers of Houston, aiming to reduce the symptoms of allergic reaction by helping the body to better cope with stress factors that inhibit its immune system. During allergy assessments, Dr. Durrett and staff use the noninvasive BAX laser to send digital signals for each tested allergen to the body, and then cross-references symptoms to a database of the more than 25,000 allergy-inducing substances, including animals, chemicals, and plants. The AllergiCare team then uses a combination of acupuncture and the laser to bombard bodies with photon-borne positive vibes and small doses of the offending allergen over the course of 30–60 minutes, reducing typical symptoms such as pollen-induced runny noses, food-sensitivity reactions, or Christmastime scrooginess.
The seasoned paranormal investigators at the Spirit Quest Center instruct burgeoning ghostbusters in the art of spectral detection on its spine-tingling Spring Ghost Tour. Before embarking into the ectoplasmic world, Spirit Quest preps spirit walkers ages 10 and older with a Ghost Hunting 101 lesson. Students learn investigation techniques such as detecting magnetic-field disturbances, using dowsing rods to communicate directly with specters, and uncovering electric voice phenomena (EVP) in digital recordings that capture the kelpie vibrato of karaoke phantasms. A professional paranormal investigator then leads the tour past some of Old Town Spring's oldest buildings, regaling the fascinating history of the vexed settlement with frequent stops for ghostly apparitions and interaction. During the 2.5- to three-hour tour, phantom pursuers may get the chance to chat with the poltergeists through the medium’s translation, asking questions about ghostly life and what it’s like to hang out with Elvis.
