When it comes to the integration of Eastern and Western medicine, Dr. Carlos Chapa might as well be the poster child. He spent nearly a decade learning and practicing Western medicine, first as a medic in the U.S. Marines, then as a civilian paramedic. When he took a sabbatical from his budding medical career to study abroad in China, Dr. Chapa's early interest in natural cures—stemming from visits to his grandmother's small town in Mexico, where she acted as the town healer—took root in the form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He delved head-first into this new passion, earning his master's degree and then his PhD in Oriental Medicine from Dongguk University in South Korea, which led him to study at one of the world's first hospitals that integrated Eastern and Western principles.
Today, Dr. Chapa brings this integrative approach to clients at Valley Ranch Acupuncture. As a licensed acupuncturist who has treated thousands of patients, he uses this 5,000 year old technique to decrease pain, boost energy, and affect hormone levels in clients, all with the aim of treating the root cause of the issues and not only focusing only on the symptoms. True to his forward-thinking style, Dr. Chapa may even swap out the hair-thin, virtually painless acupuncture needles for a laser. The low-energy beam is used to target the same locations and produce the same results as acupuncture needles, but require no penetration of the skin.

Touting more than 35 years of combined experience, Expressions' smile specialists build a firm foundation of preventative and cosmetic dental services. Appropriate for patients with slight discolouration or those between intensive treatments, Expressions’ 45-minute refresher treatment combines the whitening prowess of cool LED light with a fresh coat of peroxide gel, applied to the teeth by brush for a stark, minimalist effect. Brightening teeth two to three shades which may last up to two years, the gentle refresher yields very little or no tooth sensitivity. Patients whose premolars are in permanent coffee camouflage can pay the difference and upgrade to a more extensive whitening package, such as the 1.5-hour platinum package ($200) or the two-hour ultimate white package ($300).

Under the guidance of certified medical aesthetic provider Jackelyn Davis, Skin Rejuvenation Wellness Center's technicians unleash the power of the FDA-approved triniti complete facial rejuvenation treatment to smooth and firm skin of all types. The noninvasive procedure involves a three-step treatment––performed one after the other during one roughly 90-minute office visit––that begins with a color correction process to target blemishes ranging from spider veins to sun spots in the shape of the Eifel Tower. During step two, infrared light and bipolar radio frequencies gently pulse over epidermal layers, motivating collagen fibers to synthesize and tighten saggy areas. Finally, an experienced technician harnesses a focused series of microbeams to stimulate collagen growth and create a more elastic skull sheath. Many clients enjoy immediate results and immediately resume their normal activities. Typically, three treatments are required for long-lasting smoothness and the convenience of not being carded when buying juice boxes.
Anthony Capasso, a board-certified doctor of internal medicine, has channeled his more than 15 years of experience treating weight-related ailments into developing medication-free approaches to weight loss at Thin Centers MD. At each location, clients start their medical weight-loss regimens with an initial consultation that uses various health metrics—including medical history and a blood evaluation—to determine which approach fits them best. Dr. Capasso’s diets come tailored to various lifestyles, ranging from those that work for avid cooks to diets for people with hectic schedules. Each of the programs can also be enhanced with the fat-melting technology of an FDA-approved Zerona laser. Weekly follow-up visits with the medical staff help patients track their weight-loss progress, stamp their diet journal with the words “Private—This Means You, Mom,” and make any necessary changes to their program.
