GNC's opulent aisles display a wide variety of vitamin and mineral and herbal supplements, as well as sports nutrition, diet, energy, bodycare, and other health products. The Mega Men Sport multivitamin ($19.99 for 90 caplets) supports muscle recovery and energy levels and aids speedy male metabolisms without dangling steaks in front of their treadmills. Fuel feats of female strength with the Women's Ultra Mega Active multivitamin ($19.99 for 90 caplets). Two pounds of Pro Performance 100% whey protein ($37.99) distract taste buds with the flavor of chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry and smuggle 20 grams of high-quality protein into the body in each scoop. Promote healthy bones with a calcium supplement, such as coral calcium ($21.99 for 180 capsules) sustainably harvested from the Okinawa sea to provide a healthy two-to-one ratio of calcium and magnesium.
The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics, and Dr. McKinney’s spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Invisalign eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A comprehensive oral exam (a $100 value), including x-rays and photos (a $150 value), and models of your mouth terrain (a $75 value) will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment or braces treatment varies with each customer (the average cost is $4,950 for a full Invisalign treatment, $3,950 for Invisalign Express, and $4,950 for a braces treatment).
The first Golden Rule Bar-B-Q and Grill—a roadside joint frequented by locals and travelers alike—served its first heaping plate of lovingly smoked barbecue in 1891. The restaurant has since adapted with the times, acquiring a car-repair garage, neon signs, and a hovercar dock, in addition to nearly a dozen saucy outposts across the state. Now the various locations serve slow-cooked, hickory-smoked meats served with a variety of secret-recipe sauces and sides such as collards or mac 'n' cheese. Guests can also forgo the sauce and order surf 'n' turf dishes such as a hand-cut charbroiled steak or a creole grilled fresh catfish fillet.
With more than 370 locations and 300,000 patients, HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab brings well-trained doctors and, thus, pain relief to all corners of the continental United States. Each office’s staff provides treatments designed to quell lower-back and leg pain, vertigo, scoliosis, migraines, and carpal tunnel. Rather than rely on what they call passive chiropractic care—roller tables, heat packs, ice packs—the staffers at HealthSource mostly prescribe an active care plan to patients. This means they will perform rehabilitation routines alongside chiropractic adjustments to soothe muscle spasms, increase flexibility, and straighten posture so much that local schoolmarms begin suffering from midlife crises en masse.
At GOGA Studios, 10-minute sessions on whole-body-vibration GOGA platforms pair with infrared saunas, himalayan salt lamps, and ionized water to detoxify and rejuvenate bodies. Each experience at GOGA centers on the FDA-recognized vibrating platforms, which oscillate and simulate a walking motion. This causes muscles to contract up to 30 times per second for a multitude of benefits, such as weight loss, toned muscles, decreased stress, and an improved shimmy. Sessions in the infrared sauna further aid weight loss by stimulating the body’s metabolism with warm, soothing infrared light.

At Spoiled Rockin’ Kidz Salon, patient cosmetologists pamper youngsters with kid-friendly haircuts and pintsize spa treatments, earning mention from WAAYTV. Draped in cheerful smocks, boys pilot stationary mini cars or airplanes as stylists trim, coif, and stripe their hair with temporary color juiced from crayons. For the spa day, girls perch on soft leopard-print stools as cosmetologists brush nails with lacquer. A quarter-hour later, lasses lie back as skincare experts slather chocolate on their faces and apply sheer makeup to eyes, cheeks, and lips.
