Dr. Dana McKirahan, DC, PA sets backs straight using a variety of techniques at Lordex Spine Institute of Conroe. For some patients, he recommends sessions on the Lordex Lumbar Spine System, which helps ease lower back and leg pain with inverted or horizontal decompression and strengthening exercises. For others, he prescribes traditional adjustments and manipulations to treat misaligned bones and joints, instead of gluing one’s hands to monkey bars and hanging in the playground all day. Massages can be either therapeutic or relaxing, serving to treat chronic conditions or simply erase tension.
The beauty technicians at Elegant Hair Designs make the health and well-being of their clients their primary focus during head-to-toe treatments ranging from facials and massage to hairstyling and nail services. On the salon floor, stylists cut and color hair and also coat strands with relaxers and body waves to tame frizz. They also offer natural-hairstyling services including dreadlocks and titanium Phusion blowouts, which smooth hair with titanium technology that locks in moisture and prevents damage. Away from the salon floor, aestheticians enhance skin with facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and chemical peels, and massage therapists enhance sessions with warm stones and aromatherapy oils selected to reduce stress.
For more than a quarter of a century, the aestheticians at Perfections European Skin Care have beautified and pampered patrons with a rejuvenating cornucopia of skincare, hair-removal, and massage services. In addition to microdermabrasion, electrolysis, and Synergie AMS cellulite-reduction treatments, they provide services specially designed for people who have undergone medical procedures. These treatments aim to mend skin damaged by chemotherapy or cosmetic operations. Before appointments begin, a clinician consults with the client to customize a plan of action and ensure that staff members don’t accidentally hit the patron’s self-destruct switch disguised as a button nose.
In his 16 years of hairstyling experience, Mark Harmon has seen a lot of fads come and go. So rather than simply copy a trend, he works closely with his clients to come up with individual styles that will make them feel beautiful but still work with their particular lifestyle. But while his innovative methods and intense training make him adept at styling, coloring, or designing updos on the fly, he understands that many clients have trouble verbalizing their desires, and so he encourages clients to bring in pictures of hairstyles or celebrity mug shots in order to help direct their service.
The up-to-date lasers at Belallure Laser & Wellness Center are a triple threat—they can reduce unwanted hair growth, erase tattoos, and obscure signs of aging. Noninvasive Laser 360 treatments compound photonic wonderment by toning crinkled skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and balancing discoloration. The physician-supervised team also inspires overall well-being with an arsenal of more traditional spa treatments. Hot-stone and Swedish massages, for example, relax musculatures, whereas a set of facials brighten complexions better than neon blush at a blacklight disco.
