Helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Watson, Active Health & Wellness's staff of massage therapists, chiropractors, and cryotherapists administers a host of holistic solutions to improve health ailments. After founding the practice as Active Chiropractic in 2006, Dr. Watson revised the name to reflect the broader range of services offered. In addition to traditional spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and decompression treatments, the team helps patients manage their weight with physical exams, nutrition advice, and vitamin supplements. The cryotherapy treatments—as featured on _The Dr. Oz Show_—promote full-body wellness by placing patients in a spacious, open-ceilinged cryotherapy chamber, wherein a frigid mist of nitrogen cools the skin, jump-starting the body's natural healing process and ability to empathize with snowmen.
The talented team at Today's Dentistry employs diagnostic methods to locate tooth maladies. Munch on freshly baked cookies and recline in a massage chair before consulting with the gum gurus. During the exam and cleaning, the dentists investigate gums and interrogate suspicious-looking teeth while eyeballs can focus on the ceiling-mounted television. The dentists' exploratory adventure continues with x-rays to reveal the fully clothed skeletons inside each tooth, and the at-home whitening kit helps turn gum pebbles a supernova-esque shade in the comfort of one's own chimney. Though not included in today's Groupon, sedation is available to potentially unclench anxious jaws and replace worries with daydreams. For cleaning, an additional fee may be required for first-time or infrequent visitors to the dentist, and patients, like motorcycle riders or tricycle-business owners, must be at least 18 years of age.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Common colds and aesthetic concerns receive equal attention at Apple Family Care. Dr. Dana Colbert, a board-certified osteopathic physician and surgeon, practices family medicine from the facility—a traditional doctor's office where general health services are augmented by an array of elective services performed with state-of-the-art technology. A full-time physician is always on site to see to patients suffering from a flu bug or a dejected funny bone, and to oversee the office's many aesthetic treatments, which include laser hair removal, Botox injections, acne treatments, and skin tightening.
