Dr. Laura Mellon

Laura discovered Acupuncture and Oriental medicine one might say by accident – a family member had suffered a significant injury.

Once introduced to it, she became progressively more curious about how and why it worked.   Laura graduated with honors from Texas Health and Science University with a MSAOM and a passion for Oriental Medicine.  

After graduating she completed all four of the national exams and is designated nationally board certified as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine. Laura believes that no one system of medicine can fix everything and knows that research shows a collaborative approach significantly improves patient outcomes!   She has worked with counselors for the last several years to help the patients recover from the physical effects of stress and anxiety, with great results.  

Her work with Palmercare Chiropractic allows her to compliment the body’s recovery from structural conditions using Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. You will likely be surprised by the fact that often needles don’t get put in the places where it hurts, so you actually can relax into that acu-nap so many have come to love.

By helping the body use its own innate healing tools the body can heal faster and stay stronger so patients can live a better quality of life.

Dr. Mary Davis D.C.

Hi, my name is Dr. Mary Davis. I have a Bachelor of Science in exercise and sports science with a minor in chemistry and American sign language from Texas Tech University. Right after graduating from Tech, I moved to Houston to pursue an education in chiropractic. For along a I can remember I have had a fierce passion of serving others. So, becoming a doctor was something I have always dreamed of becoming. Within this profession, I strive to create a space of healing, wellness, and helping others reach their optimal health all through the art of chiropractic. Through my time in school, I found a very special place in my heart for the health of women throughout all stages of pregnancy and the neurological development and health of their little ones, by adjusting the body to help calm the nervous system so that the communication between the brain and body is accomplished without inference. Since the newfound passion, it has been brought to my attention how much this community needs to be advocated for, educated of their options, and most of all protected.

So, I will strive to create a space that is safe for all to bring their families to learn about all the various ways chiropractic can help their families develop properly and reach their optimal health from healing from the inside out.
