Cafes, crafts stores and more are headed to or opened in Flower Mound, Highland Village and Argyle.
Lighthouse Chiropractic is now open in Flower Mound, owner Austin Ray said.
Ray opened Lighthouse as his first chiropractic center after working in an office with other doctors in Frisco. Ray chose the location at Parker Square because he and his family live nearby, and he wanted to open his first office in a community they love.
He strives for a holistic approach with a focus on the nervous system, offering thorough examinations and clear communication with patients. Ray is also certified in a technique specific to pregnant patients as well as pediatric care, he said.
“I want to see people not only get better from pain, but also optimize their health through chiropractic care,” he said.
