Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That?s why acupuncturist Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco and Shawn Marie Miller, the center's holistic estheticians, blend years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. They read each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy and Shawn also help clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.

The Woodlands Threading's expert staffers emulate ancient Middle Eastern beautifiers by nimbly knotting thread into brow-pruning snares. Cotton loops precisely pluck strands with a twinge akin to tweezing in 15- to 30-minute threading sessions, swiftly molding brows into natural arches or handlebar mustaches. The chemical-free threading services touch up forehead fringe without irritating sensitive complexions or inciting the wrath of ingrown hairs, which is common with waxing. Over-eye fuzz remains sequestered within imposed borders for two–three weeks, much like mock-trial grand juries.
