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.
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.
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.
After getting rear-ended by a car driving around 55 miles per hour, Michelle Krenek escaped the car accident mostly unscathed, but didn’t feel like her normal self. While struggling to get a restful night of sleep, the energetic high-school teacher and basketball coach began waking up with intense headaches, pain in her neck, and fatigue. Michelle was skeptical when she took her friend's advice to visit a chiropractic office, but soon became amazed at the results after only a handful of visits. Not only was she completely relieved of pain, but she was also sleeping soundly at night and feeling rejuvenated by her newfound energy.
Michelle’s first visits to the chiropractic office inspired her to shift career paths and pursue her childhood dream of becoming a doctor. After graduating with honors from Parker College of Chiropractic and earning her license, Dr. Michelle Krenek opened Back To Life Chiropractic in 2010. Committed to improving clients' overall well-being and relieving chronic pain, Dr. Krenek and her team of therapists supplement their customized chiropractic and massage therapy with suggestions for at-home exercises and stretches. They also advise clients on vitamin supplements and healthy foods, and warn against unhealthy nutritional habits, such as drinking too much caffeine or eating dog treats deceptively shaped like bacon. Occasionally, Dr. Michelle can be spotted discussing the clinic's chiropractic care and wellness services on Great Day San Antonio.
