At Stamps Chiropractic, Dr. Wes Stamps and his team of specialists dish out doses of relaxation via a variety of massage-therapy treatments. During 30-minute hydro massages, clients remain completely clothed and completely dry atop a specialized bed. As powerful waves of water deliver heated, soothing strokes to targeted areas, a user-friendly touch screen encourages further customization with peaceful videos and a relaxing soundtrack that includes music and the tranquil call of howler monkeys.
More than a decade ago, Lisa Lapwing became a personal trainer to fulfill her passion of helping others improve their quality of life. During that time, however, she discovered the world of Oriental medicine and realized she could help people beyond fitness. She eventually enrolled in the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine and earned a master's of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. Today, Lisa draws from her knowledge of holistic services at her clinic, where she helps clients who suffer from a range of issues, such as sciatica, allergies, and stress.
Lisa works to help patients naturally stave off colds and fatigue with custom Chinese herbal pairings, which coax the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The practitioner also encourages optimal well-being via the ancient art of gua sha massage, which detoxifies the body by applying quick strokes against the skin, as well as acupuncture, a centuries-old treatment that relies on strategically placed needles designed to release excess energy and hot air clogging up the body. In addition to Oriental medicine, Lisa is also on hand to help clients reach a healthier weight through exercise and nutritional counseling.

The majority of Total Wellness Austin's treatments are customized to meet the needs of each individual, and they all help to strengthen the relationship between mind and body. Owner Lori Massad-Koska sets the tone by developing individualized yoga programs for her clients that assist in lowering stress and improving flexibility, and a series of online instruction videos allows her students to practice in the comfort of their home or their car on the commute to work. Massad-Koska's classes also incorporate furry best friends in Doga sessions, which allow pooches and their pet humans to stretch together.
In addition to sun salutations, Total Wellness Austin aids its clients in the quest for better health with acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic care and prompt extended sweating with boot camps led by certified personal trainers. Their focus on wellness extends from clients to the community in which they live: mental-health workshops raise donations for the family room at the Travis County courthouse, which helps comfort children in trouble, and a band of skilled instructors teach free yoga sessions for vets, their spouses, and bands of migrating penguins.
