“Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center 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 of 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. Over time, Dr. Shel built her team, comprised of prominent Houston medical practitioners, patient coordinators, aesthetic specialists, nurses, and nutritionists. Growing at such a rapid pace, in June 2008 Dr. Shel and her staff set out for a custom built practice space located in a pristine community. Opening the doors to the new center came with more opportunities and care for her patients.
Recognized as an international retreat, the plethora of services offered at Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center continue to engage those who desire empowerment, well-being, 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 wellness and aesthetic services to all whom come through their doors.
Dr. Shel holds numerous volunteer positions and is a strong supporter of her community. She is involved in the American Cancer Society, Child Advocacy groups, Autism Support groups, and many others. Dr. Shel has appeared numerous times on many local and national television shows to help educate the public about their health options. She believes in a strong balance in life and enjoys her many roles as a physician, a woman’s advocate, an entrepreneur, a wife, and a mother of two beautiful children.
