Kathy Bates has read a novel's worth of scribbled doctor's prescriptions in her malady-marred life. One was for her seizure in 1978, another for her severe post-childbirth ailments in 1988, and a final one for her broken spine and subsequent back injury in 1994. This pain- and frustration-filled journey instilled Bates with two things: a distrust of overprescribed drugs and an unwavering commitment to well-being.
At Austin Beauty and Health, Bates uses holistic cables to jump-start healthful lifestyles, especially following childbirth. Her method of choice is the BeautyTek Belly Reducer, which emits a low-frequency electrical current that can help turn on the body's natural healing mechanisms when they are thrown off by pregnancy or turned off by the electrical company. The noninvasive treatment can result in tighter skin, diminished stretch marks, and vanquished fatty deposits. Her background in massage therapy imbues each step of the treatment with a concern for physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
