Hill Country Apothecary has its sights set on Bee Cave. The Lakeway-based compound pharmacy will open Alive and Well, a comprehensive wellness center, at a new development in the booming suburb.

Alive and Well is the anchor tenant of the Medical Towers at Bee Cave, a new project from Hat Trick Development and Matt Fajkus Architecture that aims to serve the burgeoning, and affluent, Hill Country community. The center will offer a comprehensive approach to health and wellness centered around traditional and alternative therapies.

There will be a meditative indoor wellness garden; yoga and wellness classes; seminars; and nutrition consultations. Services range from infrared saunas, ionic foot baths, and an IV vitamin bar to more standard spa offerings like massage and acupuncture. Alive and Well also will feature a coffee and tincture bar, where guests can grab specialty drinks and organic lunch offerings post-treatment. 

An integrative doctor will be practicing onsite, guiding the community, notes a release.

“People get overwhelmed with the volume of information that’s out there, or how to find real solutions to their health needs. We aim to be a single source that helps people cut through the noise and find legitimate, custom solutions. We want to get to the root of the issue,” says owner Adam Metcalf.

Construction on Alive and Well, located at the corner of RM 620 and Highway 71 just west of the Hill Country Galleria, is scheduled to begin next month. The wellness center should be complete in fall 2017.
