A melding of calming Eastern therapies and restorative Western technologies soothes bone sheaths at the warm, inviting Spa Mercer. Today's deal welcomes clients to one of the spa's rejuvenating one-hour body services. The Chinese body scrub opens your pores to a pair of miraculous cleansing mitts and thousands of years of exfoliation tradition (a $65 value). Relax and unwind as the expert scrubber sweeps away dead cells and cobwebs; meanwhile, marvel as the mitts' motivating motions stimulate your lymphatic system into body-detoxifying gymnastics, leaving the body feeling silky smooth and tender. Alternately, the rebalancing body wrap (a $69 value) merges massage and herbal oil therapy to expertly attack stress, jet lag, and general tension. Unlike zipping yourself up in a sleeping bag packed with melted Almond Joys, the process simultaneously hydrates and re-energizes the skin. Spa Mercer's friendly, welcoming atmosphere is accentuated by the hospitable certified aestheticians and body bufferers, who take the time to listen to your pores' needs and demo tapes. If further dermal repairs beckon your vessel, present your Groupon and the spa deckhands will happily take 15% off any of their massage services. Call to make your appointment.
Dedicated expert Dr. Stacy Pacheco straightens top and bottom gnashers with the advanced computer technology of Invisalign, whose clear aligners make precise adjustments to tooth orientation. First, Dr. Pacheco assesses overall oral health with a comprehensive exam, followed by x-rays and oral and facial photos. Next, she mints a series of mouth sheaths that prevent the hassles of traditional braces, such as constantly having to dodge wily scrap-metal collectors. Invisalignees can remove aligners while eating, drinking, and brushing their teeth. Treatment times average 9–24 months, during which time patients will visit Dr. Pacheco every six weeks to ensure healthy progress and trade out aligner sets, which total 18–30 throughout the process on average. If needed, Dr. Pacheco will make up to three revisions to the original case of aligners and one midcourse correction. Dr. Pacheco is also a preferred Invisalign Provider.
The 60-minute hot-stone mud body renewal combines a hot-stone massage, a Moor-mud body wrap, and a hand-and-foot hot-stone treatment into one muddy pampering session. Like the Terracotta Army, a hot-stone massage recruits toasty lumps of earth—in this case, sleek basalt stones—to melt back and neck nerves into a euphoric stew. This stony kneading is followed by an application of mineral-rich Moor mud to the back. As you snuggle into the cocoon of a warm blanket, fatigued hoofs and paws are treated to their own hot-stone massage and heated body-oil treatment. The treatment wraps with a head and scalp massage to assuage pressure points made tense by unyielding visits from shower-borrowing neighbors.
If you've been named a Top Dentist by your peers, you know you're doing something right. That's the case for Dr. Dona Seely, a dentist and orthodontist for more than three decades. Named Top Dentist by her peers in a survey in Seattle Met magazine, she holds a master's degree in orthodontics and is board certified by the American Board of Orthodontists. To keep up her stellar reputation, Dr. Seely personally meets with every client and designs smiles around each individual's unique face. She then uses Invisalign or traditional braces to straighten teeth, and if more drastic measures are needed, she works with an oral surgeon to correct misaligned jaws.
Dr. Clara Song and her team of friendly dental dynamos operate the latest technology to provide patients with attractively gleaming gum rocks. The efficient, in-office Zoom! teeth whitening treatment—which brings smiles to new levels of brightness with a special gel, laser light, and readings from Bel and the Dragon—typically yields results that endure longer than many take-home whitening kits. AnaBella's bicuspid custodians can also treat clients to a dental exam that includes detailed x-rays to help spot your teeth's invisible enemies and a refreshing mouth bath that scrubs crusty chompers and rinses away dental dirt.
After studying biochemistry and molecular biology as an undergrad, the Dr. Gannon B. Stahl earned his dental degree at the prestigious University of Washington School of Dentistry. Dr. Stahl has garnered acclaim from both patients and fellow dentists—he was named the best cosmetic dentist in Seattle magazine's Best of 2010 Reader's Choice Awards, and awarded a spot on the Seattle Met's peer-nominated Top Dentists lists in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
To elevate his expertise, Dr. Stahl uses state-of-the-art technology during treatments at Pineview Aesthetic & Family Dentistry. He wields a laser to target periodontal disease, and employs a CEREC 3-D imaging and milling machine to create same-day crowns or tiny busts of medieval kings. Dr. Stahl extends his warmth and expertise outside the walls of his clinic, donating a significant amount of his profits to charities and the local community, and providing free dental care for people in need.
