Like armies of fierce yet plush teddy bears fighting off hoards of invaders, the certified technicians at Intrinsic Wellness Center decimate stress and bodily toxins with a soft touch. The service menu brims with colon hydrotherapy, massages, and other therapies designed to boost energy and extract the venomous microorganisms that run roughshod through the body.
Powered by far-infrared heat, saunas and body wraps help bodies sweat away unwanted pounds while melting pent-up stress like a microwave dinner melts the romance of a first date. Seasoned massage therapists dissolve muscle knots with four types of kneading modalities, and nutrition counselors help clients build custom regimens of vitamins and supplements using high-tech analytical tools such as Nutri-Physical. In addition to pampering bodies and spirits with detox programs and other spa treatments, staffers edify minds during onsite personal training and prepare people for emergencies during CPR classes.
The owner of Avalon O2 first discovered the curative powers of pure oxygen after a big night out in Las Vegas. A friend dragged her to an oxygen bar at The Venetian, where the life-giving gas restored her exhausted body, quelling the waves of nausea and unplugging the cranial jackhammer that had rendered her incapacitated.
The "bartenders" at Avalon O2 hope to serve up that same kind of relief with oxygen mixed with aromas such as peppermint for upset bellies, almond for slimming, or cherry for reliving a summer spent hiding in a produce truck. A writer for Thrillist said that these scented add-ins "allegedly enliven your brain's alpha waves, and at the very least smell better than you after a bender." As oxygen floods the lungs, massage treatments and other services soothe the outside of the body.
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.
Beauty, relaxation, and customer service are the pillars of Purity Skin Spa's philosophy. To those ends, the oasis's aesthetician works diligently to make the treatments as enjoyable as they are efficient. Facials include the use of microcurrent and oxygenating technologies, as well as chemical peels and vibrating microdermabrasion. Each service has a different goal. By using contemporary cosmetic techniques, each service aims to complete a different goal, such as evening the tone of the complexion, reducing hyperpigmentation, tightening tired skin, and sloughing off temporary tattoos that turned out to be not so temporary.
Edward Tang was struck by how the slightest change in a patient?s symptoms could completely alter their medical diagnosis. The chiropractic doctor was visiting a clinic while attending The Medical University of Lodz in Poland, but this discovery made him readjust his approach to medicine by focusing on both the symptoms and his patients? history.
Today, Dr. Tang serves as medical director at River Oaks Spine Center, where he and his staff strive to aid patients by personalizing each of their therapeutic services. They customize their treatments with a variety of tools, including physical-rehab equipment, low-level laser beams, and pain-alleviating acupuncture needles. Licensed massage therapists offer muscle-manipulation aimed at reducing stress and improving circulation. The center also specializes in spinal decompression, a procedure that works to ease back and neck pain resulting from herniated disks or attending Halloween parties dressed as a slinky.
Tat Laser Removal Clinic, LLC’s team of certified laser technicians operates under the tutelage of Dr. Joel Potasznik, who rotates between the clinic and his positions as chief of surgery at Southeast Methodist Hospital and chief of surgery and staff at Mesquite Community Hospital. Many patients compare the feeling of laser therapy to that of a rubber band snapping the skin, and TAT’s staff eases sensitive skin areas with ice or numbing injections. A fleet of lasers can target unwanted ink as well as such imperfections as acne scars, toenail fungus, and birthmarks coincidentally shaped like one's social-security number. Dr. Potasznik and his team also perform microdermabrasion treatments and body contouring with advanced vacuum therapy.
