Island Chiropractic realigns crooked spines and blocked chi, allowing clients with various ailments to restore their health with noninvasive, drug-free techniques. The first visit examines your spinal column (a $180 value)—taking x-rays if necessary (a $215 value)—in search of pesky subluxations, or misplaced vertebrae that can impinge the nerves’ ability to carry signals down the spine and into the body’s muscles, organs, and glands, potentially causing decreased resistance to disease and other imbalances. After ascertaining the root of the problem, the first visit ends with a relief treatment (a $45 value) to soothe any pain the patient is experiencing.
Lihua Yang began her study of traditional Chinese medicine during her formative years in China, before moving to America and deepening her knowledge of hands-on therapy by learning Western massage. Li now specializes in reflexology, applying precision pressure to various points on the body, such as the feet, hands, and head, that correspond to organs such as the heart and liver. The process aims to bolster health and help patients overcome a vast array of illness. While Li administers her soothing treatments, padded beds, lounge chairs, or hollowed-out tree trunks cradle her patients, and sage-green and white hues surround them, helping them relax.

Wimberley Media-Spa combines medical techniques with soothing spa treatments to rejuvenate hominids in a clean, upscale setting. During the 60-minute treatment, entrust your meat suit to a makeup-wand-wielding staff member, who will assess the dermal surface to hatch a beautifying plan that best corrects the skin's flaws and evokes the client’s natural allure. Wimberley's wunderkinds will then fuse therapeutic products and mineral makeup from gloMinerals to brighten the face’s appearance until it glimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it. Throughout the makeover, the specialist will also impart techniques to patrons on how to replicate the makeover process at home.
