“Dr. Shel Wellness & Medical Spa is not only a spa; it’s the foundation for education. Our mission is not only to empower patients but to educate and plant seeds of knowledge into every person who takes part in our programs.” -Dr. Shel
What once began as an idea formulated into a reality. After 13 years of concentrated OB/GYN practice Dr. Shelena Lalji decided the time was ever so present to pursue her independent practice.
With passion, motivation and support of her clients and family in Spring 2006 Dr. Shel broke away from one of the most prominent medical industries and began on the path to create a niche; and fulfill the demand in Houston and surrounding communities for wellness services. Building a steady clientele wasn’t stringent for Dr. Shel, with her notoriety and presence throughout Texas, providing a grand variety of services came easy.
Over time, Dr. Shel built her team, comprised of prominent Houston aestheticians, nutritionist, medical advisers and medical physicians. Growing at such a rapid pace in June 2008 Dr. Shel and staff set out for a custom built practice space located in a pristine community. Opening the doors to the new spa came with more opportunities and growth.
Recognized as an international retreat the plethora of services offered at Dr. Shel Wellness & Medical Spa continues to engage those who desire empowerment and rejuvenation. Although it all began as a dream, Dr. Shel and her well rounded staff still continue to engage, relate and provide 5 star luxury medical spa services to all whom come through their doors.
