Micro Current Therapy (Thop Institute Certified)
Thorp Institute of Integrated Medicine microcurrent therapy works where other treatments fail. Many kinds of therapy treat the symptom—most often pain—rather than the problem. Microcurrent therapy goes directly to the area of most pain, to the cellular level where illness and injury begin. Treatment plans are tailored to your individual needs and ailment. Generally, a plan consists of three consecutive 60 to 90 minute treatments. These treatments have a cumulative effect, which in most cases leads to permanent pain relief and/or greatly reduced pain levels. For many patients three treatments are enough. However, depending on severity of condition or degeneration, more treatments may be necessary to see results. Thorp Institute of Integrated Medicine is committed to supplying our clients with a solid foundation for treatment based on proven and effective protocols. Thorp Institute of Integrated Medicine microcurrent therapy successfully relieves the pain and symptoms associated with the following conditions:
Arthritis—Osteo and Rheumatoid
Back injury (acute and chronic)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Scar tissue repair
Soft tissue regeneration

Kathy Kissner, LMT
I have been in the massage industry since 1998 in the Houston and Katy, Texas area. Currently, I hold certifications to practice massage in Texas, and am also certified in medical massage, sports injury therapy, repetitive use injury therapy, massage cupping, neuromuscular massage, trigger point therapies, Prenatal, Swedish, chair massages, and various spa treatments. When working with a client, the focus is the overall well-being of the client. I have a great referral base and if I feel I cannot help a client, I will do my best to help them find someone who can help with their problem. If this means referring them to a doctor, chiropractor, hormone therapist, acupuncturists, and various other resources, to help with their needs. I have worked with Chevron for 3 years, Ernst & Young for 5 years, and was the sole contract company for Enron for 4 years. I have had my own location in the heart of Houston's beautiful River Oaks since 1999 and in Katy, since 2005. A few companies I have worked with in the past is Shell, Continental Airlines, MS 150, along with some Texans Player (not current players). My specialty is in medical massage, a varied massage technique. I incorporate different styles of massage to give my clients relief from chronic/acute pain. This can be under the supervision of a doctor, personal trainer, physical therapist, or for a personal need. Most clients overwork themselves and need relief from everyday stressors, while others need to perform better at their jobs. I can also include massage cupping, which can be a spa treatment, or a treatment that is necessary for medical reasons, in cases where, for example, patients experience extreme pain, and pressure on the muscles would damage tissue or cause inflammation. Another use for massage cupping is to minimize the appearance of cellulite. Kathy is a mother of 4 children ranging from 10 yrs old- 23 years old. Loving the community that we live in. Family and activity is her priority. Her kids went to private and public schools in Houston, St. Michaels Catholic Church, Beck Junior High, Cinco Ranch High School and Shlenker School. God is her driving force for her life.
Guadalupe Gonzalez-Chodzko. photo - (1)My name is M. Guadalupe Gonzalez-Chodzko. I am an esthetician specializing in facial skincare and anti-aging treatments. My earliest experience with facial treatments was when I was a teenager growing up in Mexico and I experimented with oatmeal and avocado facial masks. Like many teenagers, I started having problems with acne and I became very interested in skincare. I wanted to educate myself about acne prevention and to learn how to keep my skin cleaner and younger looking. I learned that health and beauty starts from the inside through healthy lifestyle, foods and dietary supplements and can be complemented and completed on the outside by facials and body treatments. I enjoy helping and teaching others about how to become healthier and how to look and feel younger. I moved to Houston 15 years ago. I have a Bachelor's degree in education and I received my Texas esthetician license in 2007. I had the opportunity to work in a medical spa for one year. In 2010, I trained with Brian Champagne using Bio-therapeutic micro-current technology (a non-surgical facelift treatment). He is a world champion facialist and 3 time winner of the "Face of the Future" award for his anti-aging facial treatments. After training with Brian, I started my own business as an independent esthetician. In 2014, I earned my Texas esthetician instructor license.
