At Blueprint to Healthcare, a team of doctors, physician's assistants, and chiropractors guides patients toward personalized health goals with lifestyle education, wellness checks, and preventive care. In addition to reaching the masses with health fairs and seminars at local businesses, they treat individual patients with diagnostic evaluations, medical weight loss programs, physical therapy, and technical processes such as spinal ultrasounds, digital x-rays, and hugs from robots.
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.
Analyte Health's staff of certified phlebotomists works to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases by offering affordable screening to patients at more than 30 Houston-area locations. The FDA-approved and CLIE-certified test scans blood and urine samples for eight sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B and C, herpes I and II, HIV, and syphilis. Within 72 hours, patients receive their confidential test results on a secure website or via e-mail, with the promise that Analyte Health will never share them with a third party. If necessary, fully trained doctors and medical professionals are on hand to discuss treatment options.
New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
Folicure's developers approach hair restoration with an artist's precision instead of treating customers with the same unchanging template and sending the specs off to a factory. With each client, they map the original hairline, density, and characteristics such as cowlicks. Then they re-create them through a mold and base, fitting the customized hair system to the scalp with a medical adhesive. Working on the hairline by hand and blending new hair in with the sides and back, they construct a natural-looking head of hair that can be styled, slicked back, spiked, parted, washed, and combed. The approach creates hair that moves, feels, and talks like the real thing. The system is designed for both men and women, and in many instances they can send clients home with their new hair the same day as the consultation.
