Goodbody Wellness, LLC Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine

Amanda Picken L.Ac.

4111 Marathon Blvd. Suite 110

Fancy an all-natural glow up? Ancient medicine is making a splash in the world of modern beauty. The signature facial-rejuvenation treatment at Goodbody Wellness combines cosmetic acupuncture, facial massage and Gua Sha.

Your treatment begins with Gua Sha, an East Asian facial massage technique that involves gently pressing and gliding a flat jade or quartz stone across the face. This tool is used to promote blood circulation, break up fascia, assist lymphatic drainage and sculpt the face.

Next, c​osmetic acupuncture is performed to address fine lines, tone, texture, symmetry and clarity. Licensed acupuncturist, Amanda Picken, will often insert 30-50 super-fine needles into problem areas around the face. The needles create micro-traumas that encourage collagen production and increased circulation.

Goodbody Wellness is an acupuncture and herbal medicine clinic that takes a holistic approach to health and beauty. In addition to cosmetic concerns, your practitioner will address any hormonal imbalances or stress that may be having a profound effect on your skin, body, mind and spirit.

IV Vitamin hydration Therapy

The majority of us are in a constant state of toxicity, malnutrition and dehydration — and we don’t even know it. Busy lifestyles, stress and illness deplete our supply, setting us up for chronic conditions, disease and premature aging. At La Vie En Rainey, 12 different IV Vitamin Hydration Therapy Fusions are offered as well as individual Boosters for beauty, energy, weight loss, hangovers, liver cleanser, libido enhancer and wellness. If you need to revitalize your overall well-being, re-hydrate and restore your vitamin levels, IV Vitamin Hydration Therapy is for you. IV Vitamin Hydration Therapy can help you detox your body, strengthen your immune system, fight cold and flu symptoms, fight jet lag or simply cure a hangover.

IV Vitamin Hydration Therapy delivers a powerful dose of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other vital nutrients directly into the bloodstream at levels that are not possible through oral supplements. Even the healthiest bodies are only able to absorb about 50 percent of the vitamins and hydration through digestion and only 15 percent of the active nutrients may find their way into your cells. IV drips bypass the digestive process and deliver essential nutrients and fluids directly into the bloodstream for quick and safe 100 percent absorption. This allows us to detoxify, nourish and hydrate our cells from the inside out for dramatic, long-lasting and often instant results.

Now you can experience the once exclusive “little secret” of celebrities and athletes and benefit from the impact of La Vie En Rainey’s revitalizing and rejuvenating IV therapy. All IV Vitamin Hydration Therapies are painlessly administered by a certified nurse at your home, business, or on location at La Vie En Rainey.

August Special: Receive 50 percent off your first IV Therapy Fusion by mentioning Austin Fit when you book your first appointment.

Invisalign is a great alternative for patients who are self-conscious about an overbite, underbite or other alignment imperfections but do not want traditional braces. Instead of obvious metal brackets and wires, you can wear nearly invisible trays that are consistently replaced as teeth shift into their proper position.

While treating damaged teeth and inflamed gums often improves the overall appearance of your smile, restorative treatments may leave you wanting even better-looking results. Cosmetic dentists specialize in enhancing the aesthetics of your smile to give it that extra boost.

With the comprehensive dental care at Smile 360, you can receive all your treatments from the same dentist so that your oral health is consistently maintained.
