The six pulses of your wrist, the quality of your tongue—Lei Shaw scrutinizes such aspects of the body to pinpoint signs of imbalance. One way of rectifying those imbalances is through acupuncture, a technique the licensed acupuncturist and herbalist honed while serving as resident doctor at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in China. She performs sessions by inserting thin needles at specific points of the body to help restore the flow of energy and increase empathy toward pincushions. To alleviate muscle tightness and sprains, Lei turns to cupping, in which heated glass cups placed on patients’ skin create a vacuum that boosts circulation. She further stimulates the body’s natural healing processes with personalized Chinese herbal formulas administered through pills or capsules.
Dr. Allison Yee—an Indiana University health physician—and Melinda Johnson dislike medications and surgery as a rule of big toe. They instead opt to treat toenail fungus—which can spread quickly, cause discoloration, and incite impolite glances at sandal expos—with a noninvasive, handheld laser system. During quick sessions, they bombard affected nail plates and surrounding tissue with the heated energy from the intense light to eventually banish fungi and promote new, clear nails without painful side effects.
ProWellness's certified massage therapists have many years of experience between them, having untied more flesh-knots and restraightened more teettering Jenga-block spines than the 1965 Olympic championship Ukranian Rubbing Team. While they specialize in penetrating techniques such as deep tissue, myofacial release, and trigger point, you can opt for softer techniques like the flowy Swedish, the pre-natal, and hot stone. Their modern office facility features enough open space and gleaming surfaces to calm the mind of any jittery docoto-phobe, and even houses a children's play area to help make the waiting and treatment process stressless.

The spinal cord tunnels through the spine's stacked bony segments, known as vertebrae. Even though the spine exists to protect the spinal cord, vertebrae often slide out of place and irritate delicate nerve material. This sliding can cause pain and other neurological symptoms, but can also occur without symptoms while still impacting health. Nerve irritation can occur at any age, but when it occurs in children, it can negatively affect their physical development.
Doctor of Chiropractic John P. Rempel believes it's important to ensure the spinal health of children, and at HealthZone Chiropractic, he specializes in administering gentle adjustments for kids, as well as treating all family members.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned dentistry. Each practice features doctors specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process—including some categorized as Premier Providers—which eschews burdensome 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, 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 $2,000 to $8,000; treatments commonly fall in the range of $4,300 to $5,800). This Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost of the full treatment.
