Before being discovered by med spas, lasers were used exclusively for slicing turkeys during space Thanksgiving. Give thanks for lasers with today's Groupon: for $999, you get six Zerona body-slimming treatments at Lake Tapps Family Medicine in Sumner (a $2,200 value).
Zerona, a noninvasive body-contouring procedure, reduces corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches without the negative side effects associated with surgical methods. During each session, a low-level laser floods over the body causing fat cells to become porous and flush their unwanted contents into extracellular space. The adipose tissues merge onto interstitial highways surrounding the cells, where they rubberneck at organs during a naturally detoxifying joyride through the body. During six 40-minute treatments, laser-wielding professionals focus on eliminating fat deposits located in the waist, the hips, and other sections resistant to diet and exercise. Like watching a Ken Burns documentary, the treatment is painless and results in zero downtime.

But today, the fruits of her medical globetrotting are ripe for the picking by the citizens of Lake Tapps, where her family practice promotes well-being with a barrage of health services. Alongside full physicals and massage therapy, Dr. Day and her team take particular care of women with gynecological exams and children with pediatric care.

Whether one is afflicted with a tummy ache or unshakable stress, Dr. Day is bound to have a remedy and an attendant anecdote from a faraway land.
