Integrative Wellness Clinic’s staffers draw upon their skills in both Eastern and Western medicine as they treat their patients. For each case, they investigate ailments based on a variety of personal elements—including psychological, physical, social, and spiritual—before offering the best course of action through their holistic services.

Balanced herbal remedies in the form of teas, capsules, and powders may be prescribed to help strengthen immune systems or treat insomnia. Other services include fertility treatment, moxibustion, and holistic nutrition, a program that aims to create personalized diets that reduce the intake of additives and preservatives.
The Chinese mapped a network of channels through which energy, or qi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. Lisa Schlegel, founder of Acupuncture & Natural Healing Therapies, taps into these channels to unlock your body's natural ability to heal itself. A Texas-licensed, nationally board-certified practitioner, Schlegel specializes in needle methods that combine gentleness, efficiency, and immaculate blindfolded aim when affixing donkey tails. Your skilled and compassionate practitioner will begin with an in-depth look at your medical history, current ailments, and concerns for the future. Armed with a thorough understanding of your concerns, the holistic health experts will design and implement a treatment to address your individual needs, whether you seek relief from allergy symptoms, insomnia, muscle and joint pain, digestive problems, or depression. The entire process takes 1.5–2 hours, the average length of a porcupine's sleep cycle.
Licensed acupuncture practitioners Joanna Lei Shelton and Molly McMichael gently stimulate acupuncture points with fine filiform needles in treatments targeted to each client's specific health concerns. Patrons relax on comfortable tables nestled in quiet, private rooms with individual temperature controls that keep patients comfortable and able to continue pranks on Arctic explorers. The session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the client's health concerns, and the practitioner draws on extensive experience to tenderly insert the sterile, disposable needles, which stimulate trigger points. The acupuncturist communicates with the patient during the process to keep the treatment as pain-free as possible and cause only sensations of tingling, pressure, or light quilting.
