Migraines. Insomnia. Stress. Lower back pain. Traditional Chinese medicinal practitioners such as Dale Tope and Amy Woods believe all of these problems and more can be quelled by skilled acupuncturists. At Pflugerville Acupuncture, the licensed duo thoroughly evaluates each client before designing an acupuncture plan that targets a series of specific points on the body.
Tope, a registered nurse and former chief ward master for the Army, specializes in men’s health and patients suffering from PTSD, and his specialties are balanced by Woods, who focuses on women’s health. Together, they not only helm acupuncture services but also prescribe at-home remedies from their apothecary, which stocks Chinese herbs, pain patches, and supplements that ease stress by growing into live-in butlers when submerged in water overnight.
Salt Spot has taken halotherapy a long way from its roots as a healing tradition of antiquity. While the ancient Greeks had to journey to dark, subterranean salt mines to take in therapeutic breaths and season their french fries, Salt Spot's patrons reap the benefits of sodium-rich air from the comfort of salt cocoons. From a single tablespoon of pharmaceutical-grade salt, the spa's private pods generate a naturally anti-inflammatory and antifungal mist that seeps through the pores and respiratory systems of its occupant to clarify the skin and ease breathing.
