Her deep interest in inpatient care is reflected in her practice, where she combines complementary therapies with traditional treatments.

“I emphasize preventive medicine, because a patient’s lifestyle and daily habits create the conditions for health or disease.

I look at every aspect that could have a bearing upon an illness – spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical. It isn’t enough just to treat the symptoms. I want to know the cause. I’m a partner with the patient in the healing process, and I believe that the patient must take responsibility for his or her health.” This individualized and caring approach to treatment has earned great praise from her patients, who appreciate her personal interest as well as her special knowledge and experience.

Dr. Grose is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Texas Medical Association, the American Holistic Medical Association, the Institute of Functional Medicine, and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

My name is Dicson Leon and I am originally from Venezuela. I have been in Houston, TX since 2006. I completed my ESL certificate and Associates degree in Arts at Lone Star College in Kingwood, TX.

As a remitted and recovered cancer patient for 18 years I made my purpose in life to help other people heal. Moreover, I have the support of my beautiful wife and my family who believe in me and in my ability and commitment to improve the quality of life of my clients.

I’ve been a Texas Licensed Massage Therapist since 2012. I start my career working at Urban Day Spa for 4 years where I learned different massage techniques and body treatments. Then, I moved to Hand & Stones (Creekside, The Woodlands) in 2016-2017 where I became the Lead Therapist because of my excellent customer service and the large number of clients requesting me. Recently, I was the Lead Therapist since 2018 at Massage Heights (Summerwood, Houston) where I was considered a Senior Lead Therapist because of the experience and knowledge I have. I have certifications in: Deep Tissue, Sport Massage, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Thai Massage, Aroma Massage, Hot Stones, Cupping, and Prenatal Massage.

​What I do is more than a regular massage. It is a customized therapy that helps to maintain the body functioning with less stress and muscles tension. As a former athlete and soccer coach, I know from first-hand how important it is to have a body that performs at the highest level, so one of my areas of expertise is sports massage and muscle recovery through. This is achieved not only through the massage, but I also advise on exercises and stretches to be done at home. It is my pleasure to serve people I encounter in my practice and I am very passionate to offer you the best treatment for your body.
