Acupuncturist Joeming Dunn sees the body with a physician's eye. That's because his eye is attached to the brain of a trained medical doctor, though he's practiced acupuncture for the last 15 years and contributed to two acupuncture textbooks. Dr. Dunn views the ancient Chinese technique not only as an alternative to Western medicine but also as a supplement. With the diligence of a scientist and the precision of a bluegrass banjoist, he applies needles along the body to relieve allergies and muscular pain, as well as help clients lose weight and quit smoking.

Integrative Wellness Clinic’s staffers draw upon their skills in both Eastern and Western medicine as they treat their patients. For each case, they investigate ailments based on a variety of personal elements—including psychological, physical, social, and spiritual—before offering the best course of action through their holistic services. Licensed acupuncturists insert tiny, sterile needles into the skin along specific pathways, aiming to restore balance to internal energies and treat conditions such as muscle spasms, migraines, and stress. Balanced herbal remedies in the form of teas, capsules, and powders may be prescribed to help strengthen immune systems or treat insomnia. Other services include fertility treatment, moxibustion, and holistic nutrition, a program that aims to create personalized diets that reduce the intake of additives and preservatives.
The skilled staff members at Taichi Wellness Spa Plus draw on Eastern practices and philosophies to guide their clients on the path toward wellness. Reflecting the holistic nature of this approach, the spa’s services soothe body, soul, and mind, a trio more interdependent than Burt Reynolds, his moustache, and his moustache’s modeling career. The spa’s skilled therapists ease aches while calming minds with acupressure and reflexology massages. Skincare specialists cater to both weary complexions and tense nerves with custom facials that incorporate ingredients such as honey hydrators and vitamin C.
The spa delves further into Eastern treatments with cupping and detoxifying Gua Sha oil, and its Chinese herbal soups and teas blur the line between food and medicine with their nutritional and therapeutic benefits. The meditative martial arts taught at the spa’s tai-chi center has also passed from generation to generation. Under the guidance of Master Li, students in the center’s tai-chi and Qi Gong classes develop the balance and coordination needed to pickpocket a tightrope walker.
The Chinese mapped a network of channels through which energy, or qi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. Lisa Schlegel, founder of Acupuncture & Natural Healing Therapies, taps into these channels to unlock your body's natural ability to heal itself. A Texas-licensed, nationally board-certified practitioner, Schlegel specializes in needle methods that combine gentleness, efficiency, and immaculate blindfolded aim when affixing donkey tails. Your skilled and compassionate practitioner will begin with an in-depth look at your medical history, current ailments, and concerns for the future. Armed with a thorough understanding of your concerns, the holistic health experts will design and implement a treatment to address your individual needs, whether you seek relief from allergy symptoms, insomnia, muscle and joint pain, digestive problems, or depression. The entire process takes 1.5–2 hours, the average length of a porcupine's sleep cycle.
