Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Eleven 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, 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); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
At Sandpiper Dental, friendly isn’t just a vague way to describe the staff. Drs. Thomas W. Waite and David J. Trebisovsky, both University of Minnesota alums with more than 25 years of experience each, and their staff show patients how much they care by greeting everyone by their first name as they walk through the door. They also handwrite friendly notes to check in with patients after they’ve undergone a root canal or complicated surgery to extract stubborn popcorn kernels. They even have been known to send out hand-crafted birthday cards and flowers on special occasions, and they keep their office equipped with a children’s play area to make the space welcoming to whole family.
The aestheticians and massage therapists at Perfect Getaway Day Spa pamper clients with a lavish spread of manicures and pedicures, custom-tailored facials, and a dozen different massage styles. Swedish and deep-tissue treatments root out aches with gentle, flowing kneads or targeted pressure, and reflexology massage relieves tension throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. Soothing soaks and massages soften hands and feet during signature mani-pedis, and facials refresh complexions with personalized blends of products designed for any skin type, whether dry, oily, or locked in an iron mask. The spa's party packages can also transform birthday or bachelorette gatherings into full-on makeovers with combinations of massages, facials, and mani-pedis.
Tucked inside Vizi Spa & Salon is a cozy room where Freddie spends his days. The massage therapist unties knotted muscles and alleviates new and chronic aches during sessions that last anywhere from 60 minutes to an indulgent 90 minutes. Freddie uses Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques to traverse torsos with both gentle kneading and focused pressure that realigns the deeper layers of connective tissue. Alternatively, couples or a client and their favorite teddy bear can recline on tables for a relaxing couples massage.
