Physician and Balanced Health and Wellness founder Dr. Mary Alavi may not be a mapmaker, but she does understand that knowing where you are is the first step toward getting to where you want to be. She created the center after years of watching her patients suffer from premature aging and degenerative diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, knowing full well that many cases could have been preventable had her patients merely stopped to examine the signs. Her whole-person approach to health care includes a detailed exploration of each patient's history, lifestyle, and genetic factors. This road map to wellness might include medical screening or lab testing, nutrition plans or fitness protocols led by a certified personal trainer. Dr. Alavi's balanced approach to wellness also inspired her to make changes in her own life and she continues to share her own personal successes and failures to encourage her patients to stay on track.
The patient-centered philosophy at Balanced Health and Wellness is evident in the lobby. Staffers present clients with tea or flavored water before directing them to sessions with a massage therapist or an aesthetician, or to a consultation with the office's certified laser technician who will discuss hair removal, spider veins, fine lines, and age spots.
Ben Crabtree of Massage By Ben takes the time to fully understand each client’s needs so he can target treatment to specific ailments. As a licensed massage therapist and certified neuromuscular therapist, he has mastered 17 different techniques to reverse chronic pain and stress. Beyond traditional Swedish and deep-tissue modalities, Ben helps bodies release tension through Ortho-Bionomy therapy, in which he guides limbs through simple positions that compress joints to trigger the body’s corrective reflexes and propensity to hokey pokey. Neuromuscular therapy works to relieve chronic pain by manipulating soft tissue, such as tendons and connective tissue, targeting issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, and migraines.
As a veteran of the modeling and acting world, Carly Roarke understands the significance of maintaining a youthful, healthy appearance. The medical clinician, licensed in medical aesthetics and certified and trained in injectibles and laser technology, gleaned her beauty knowledge from years spent with makeup artists, photographers, dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and laser-wielding power-point presenters.
The spa-like clinic’s encyclopedic list of treatments ranges from traditional facials and chemical peels to laser vein correction, Botox, and dermal fillers. Carly can also lessen the effects of gravity, sun damage, and furrowed brows caused by repeated exposure to reality television with skincare products by brands such as Actifirm, iS Clinical Skincare, and Éminence Organics.
Integrative Sports & Wellness Medical Center's health experts, under the watchful gaze of Russ Jepson, D.C. and medical director Bryan Jepson, M.D., aim to aid patients in the quest for improved health with a diverse palette of detoxification, massage, and chiropractic care services. Sports- and child-focused chiropractic treatments help bolster active or still-developing bodies, preventing spinal problems, athletic injuries, and being scolded for slouching at the dinner table. Multidisciplinary weight-loss management programs assist patients in shedding pounds while also ridding the body of harmful toxins, and massage packages regularly ease tension.
When patients are greeted with aromatherapy and massage chairs, it becomes immediately clear that the Plano Center for Aesthetic Dentistry places a priority on client comfort. Heated neck pillows soothe stressed bow ties, and the ceiling's high-definition televisions keep eyes and ears occupied as teeth undergo their treatments. While these spa-style extras pamper patients, Dr. Dickson and his team are busy rejuvenating smiles with dental technology whose forward-thinking style echoes that of the clinic's amenities. These tools include laser dentistry, digital imaging, lower radiation digital x-rays, and two types of sedation.
