A chiropractor for more than 15 years, Doctor of Chiropractic Dale Southerland leads Southerland Chiropractic as staff members work together to help bolster back health with holistic methods. Focusing on the detection and correction of spinal ailments, Southerland makes gentle adjustments while onsite massage therapists knead problematic muscles and a vengeful grocery-delivery driver kneads all of the bananas.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 2,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Those looking to amp up their aesthetic moxie can enlist in a variety of services such as weight loss treatments, spray tanning, chiropractic care, and Lipo Plex. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
Licensed massage therapist Robert Luddington, the founder of Integrated Body Solutions, believes that massage is a vital part of a holistic wellness program. With more than 10 years of experience, he offers a host of different massage techniques at his private Pearland studio, from deep-tissue to Swedish, hot stone, and trigger point. Come in to try the most popular massage choice, the Integrated Solution, which fuses several types of massage modalities in one session—Swedish, Myofascial Release techniques, and customized strokes. Clients can also relax during a sports massage before or after an athletic event such as baseball, or before an unathletic event such as criticizing people who play baseball.
Janette Poche is like a detective. With 21 years of investigative know-how, she ferrets out sources of tension and chronic pain with a trifecta of massage techniques—Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger point. Just as each case is unique, Janette can blend these techniques at will according to the needs of each client, whether they are hoping to just relax, are recovering from an injury, or are prepping for an upcoming stint on a pogo stick. While she has a private massage studio within a nearby Pilates studio, she can take her operation on the road to clients' homes, offices, and campsites.

Kaitlyn Confer, a massage therapist at Family Rehab and Medical Massage, says that she loves helping her clients relax and forget about their day-to-day problems for a while. And she does so with the aid of her talented thumbs, which skillfully employ multiple modalities of massage ranging from the more intense deep-tissue massage to Swedish massage to gentle chair massage, which is ideal for tense office workers and their tense office chairs. She says that the best compliment she's ever received from a client is one that comes up again and again—a repeat visit. "It tells me that I've done a good job and provided excellent service," she says.
In addition to massage, she and her fellow staffers also provide spa services, including fat-melting body wraps and mind-soothing aromatherapy.
