Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), 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 varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Recharge Sports Injury Center's licensed chiropractors aim to destroy everyday aches and particular pain by seeking out their root sources in the spine and its network of nerves. Structural analysis of musculoskeletal systems through x-rays, exams, and consultations informs classic, hands-on chiropractic adjustments as well as a host of newer therapies: cold lasers, electrical impulses, and ultrasound waves can all target tissue on the cellular level to prompt microscopic healing. In addition to sports-therapy specialists, general chiropractic pros, and a peppy skeleton mascot, the Recharge staff also boasts a dedicated nutritionist and weight-loss counselor.
Doctor of Chiropractic Phil D. Golinsky is a master of the upper-cervical-specific technique, an approach that fixes subluxations in the cervical vertebrae—the seven key vertebrae located directly below the skull. Golinsky honed such skills during his education at Life Chiropractic College and, subsequently, in his time spent helping patients both inside and outside the office. One such instance of extracurricular care occurred when Golinsky took part in a two-week chiropractic retreat in Russia, a trip that helped to ease the aches of more than 39,000 people and one very lucky giraffe. Today, the doctor and his fellow Doctor of Chiropractic Kyle S. Bloch apply their specialized knowledge of chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and massage as they help patients with a variety of issues at Golinsky Specific Chiropractic.
An incubator for kung fu, the Songshan Shaolin Temple is one of the most famous sights in China. More than 1,500 years ago, Bodhiharma introduced the temple’s Shaolin monks to basic techniques for boosting their health, fitness, and defending themselves and their fortress. Centuries later, this practice of Shaolin Kung Fu has emanated across the known universe, especially through the temple’s satellite Shaolin Temple USA Culture Centers. At two locations in California and one in Virginia, Shaolin monks lead students of all ages through Dharma’s ancient teachings, including the authentic, traditional fist and weapon forms in addition to sparring techniques, self-defense maneuvers, and peace-inducing meditation.
