Dr. Faustino certainly has his chiropractic specialties—which range from subluxation correction to sports injury rehab—but he also takes a holistic approach to wellness. That means he treats the entire person and offers preventive treatments rather than focusing on symptoms only when they arise. For the past 25 years, he's relied on this foundation while adjusting spines. He and his trained staff at Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center tend to patients at all stages of life, from infancy to those already in their second robot bodies.
The expert fitness instructors at Sweat Fitness's Philadelphia-area locations help students of all ages and fitness levels track down svelter silhouettes with Precor training equipment and fat-roasting classes—including yoga, Pilates, spinning, Zumba, and kickboxing. Committed to fostering a supportive community for all fit seekers, the trainers devote individual attention to each patron to help them meet their fitness goals. Clients first undergo a body-fat analysis to assess their preworkout fitness level and to help them gauge their progress throughout their journey. During group sweat sessions, patrons can tone their bodies in classes such as Group Power and Power Pump, which blast subdermal meat suits via squats, lunges, and curls. A full aquatics center welcomes guests to dive into relatively narwhal-free waters for swimming lessons, triathlon training, and pool parties.

Acupuncture is a gentle application of specifically placed thin needles that promote healing and decrease pain. This ancient modality dates back to 5000 BC and is currently world renowned for its affects on the reduction of pain.
Licensed acupuncturist Daniel D. Nemer helms Translating Health, a holistic healing center where acupuncture liberates chi, massages limber up muscles, and the therapeutic powers of exercise alleviate ailments. Acupuncture places needles at specific points along the body’s meridians, or energy channels, liberating chi or pent-up rapping abilities. The treatments rarely hurt and may improve bodies after one session. In massages, Nemer kneads muscles using a blend of reiki, bodywork, and acupressure to diminish tension and pain. Nemer’s supervised distribution of herbal therapies and nutritional advice helps clients prolong good health with potent organic herbs that they can cook, apply topically, or sprinkle like confetti over their duvets.
Jardin Medical Spa springs several spa services on Philadelphia's faces, but only two have been set aside for Groupon users. The chemical peel efficiently and effectively treats skin that's been damaged by the harsh winter sun, unevenly pigmented, unfairly wrinkled, or unwisely replaced with a hologram. The spa's sugarcane-based glycolic peel improves texture and tone, adding a healthier look to faces while helping reduce future aging agitators such as age spots or faded pigmentation. At 15 minutes, the chemical peel is also one of the fastest cosmetic procedures available, topped only by a goblet of vitriol tossed in the face by a spiteful Victorian mistress.
