Living Health New Braunfels focuses on five simple words—holistic, integrative, naturopathic, and respectful humility—while tending to patients with nutrition, massage, hormone balancing, and detoxification services. The staff of registered nurses and massage therapists specializes in detoxification, helping patients lighten their loads by eliminating toxins and stockpiles of marbles from their bodies with colon hydrotherapy, lymph-boosting massages, whole-food supplements, and ionic footbaths. No matter what treatment they administer, they recognize that no one knows your body like you; even though they'll make recommendations for certain treatments, they'll never push you toward a treatment you don't want.
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.
Licensed spine refiner Doctor of Chiropractic Tiffany Curley fuses her expertise with advanced technologies to help her patients manage mechanical problems and reach their health goals. This Groupon encompasses two office visits. The 60-minute initial session includes a comprehensive orthopedic and neurological exam and consultation, including a patient-history intake, evaluation of vitals in a full-range motion checkup, blood-pressure reading, and test counting most consecutive backflips in one minute (a $101 value). Afterward, if the doctor deems them necessary, x-rays (a $189 value) articulate the body's skeletal framework, showing any signs of misalignment or degeneration. During the second visit, Dr. Curley reports the exam's findings, which inform her suggestions for a treatment plan as well as a 30-minute hands-on adjustment (a $75 value) and guitar lesson.
Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth McFadden tailors each of her massages to the client she's working with?whether she's de-stressing physiques with Swedish kneads, or doling out the more intense pressure of deep-tissue and trigger-point treatments. She even customizes her sessions' scents, adding complimentary aromatherapy upon request.
Wimberley Media-Spa combines medical techniques with soothing spa treatments to rejuvenate hominids in a clean, upscale setting. During the 60-minute treatment, entrust your meat suit to a makeup-wand-wielding staff member, who will assess the dermal surface to hatch a beautifying plan that best corrects the skin's flaws and evokes the client’s natural allure. Wimberley's wunderkinds will then fuse therapeutic products and mineral makeup from gloMinerals to brighten the face’s appearance until it glimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it. Throughout the makeover, the specialist will also impart techniques to patrons on how to replicate the makeover process at home.
Atlas Pain Institute takes its name from the atlas vertebrae—the spine’s uppermost segment. Unlike the other segments, this vertebra floats freely, allowing the head to pivot in all directions. As such, it is believed to be the segment most prone to slipping and bumping against nerve tissue, causing pain and other bodily symptoms.
Dr. B. Jason Trowbridge, an upper-cervical specialist, eases atlas vertebrae and the other vertebrae back into healthier positions. To do so, he relies on a combination of state-of-the-art chiropractic adjustments with advanced techniques, such as computerized posture analysis and vibratory massage.
