A 30- or 60-minute Swedish massage employs a supple mix of long and short movements to lessen aches and extirpate pockets of pain. Either of the two female therapists melt soft-tissues into plumes of relaxation with specialized massage techniques, such as rocking, vibration, friction, and compression to help relieve chronic-pain, reduce everyday stress and tension, and ward off illness and disease after spending a fortnight at sea or a fortnight explaining what a fortnight is to a stubborn child.
The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics, and Dr. McKinney’s spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Invisalign eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A comprehensive oral exam (a $100 value), including x-rays and photos (a $150 value), and models of your mouth terrain (a $75 value) 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 or braces treatment varies with each customer (the average cost is $4,950 for a full Invisalign treatment, $3,950 for Invisalign Express, and $4,950 for a braces treatment).
