Element 5 Om’s owner and licensed acupuncturist Sheri Davidson focuses on making disparate parts work together as a whole. Sheri began her traditional Chinese medical studies in 2000, cultivating a passion for Japanese architecture and martial-arts along the way. Through her studies, Davidson has learned extensively in the fields of Acupuncture, moxibustion training, Chinese herbology, Tai Chi, and Qigong.

Eastern medicine emphasizes a theory of interconnectedness. For example, the lungs affect the kidneys, which in turn affect the heart. To this end, the clinic’s range of services works to bring clients’ bodies into balance, without standard medications or excessive seesaws. Acupuncture guides the body’s energy flow into more healthful patterns by inserting fine needles into certain meridian points on the body. This is believed to stimulate the flow of energy and can treat a variety of chronic medical conditions, along with decreasing chronic pain. During cupping treatments, gentle suction coaxes tight muscles into releasing tension and toxins, whereas one-on-one health-coaching sessions help clients learn to live a life that fosters wellness.

Q&A with the President

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?

We offer hot towels, hot or cool eye masks, and full-body heating pads.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

The president of our company suffers from chronic neck pain. Her husband is also a fitness enthusiast and an executive who relies on massage to recover after rigorous exercises and maintain high productivity at work. The president's elderly parents enjoy the relaxation and pain-relief massages bring, and her friends in the fashion and entertainment industries receive massages to stay at the top of their game.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

If the body has to work on pain relief and maintaining a normal, relaxed state, then it cannot be at its best. Our experienced therapists work with you to restore your body to an optimal condition so that you can look and function better. We've lived in this area for close to two decades and understand the needs of our clientele very well. Our decor, ambiance, and the way we treat clients are truly distinctive.

Belly dancing and hot yoga, all set to thumping house music? Yes, please. Your Body Center on the Katy Freeway in the Heights is housed in a rather non-descript office building, but inside are two huge yoga rooms and a startling supply of weekly classes. The seriously up tempo studio has been operating from different Heights locations since 2003, but in their current space trainers and coordinators offer both hot and regular yoga classes daily, as well as belly dancing and several different Pilates classes. There certainly is no boredom here; even if you tried all of the sessions, pumping music and upbeat trainers make each class unique. Massage therapists are available by appointment, and the facility offers plenty of showers and lots of parking.
