Dr. Faith Esterson is joined in her practice by a talented physician's assistant, a licensed aesthetician, and a pair of medical assistants.

Since a goodly portion of overall health comes from weight management, the medicos expand their services well beyond traditional chiropractic services to help clients take charge of their diet and exercise routines. Deploying the Metabolize system, they run clients through scientifically calibrated metabolic assessments that reveal how many calories folks burn whether they're exercising, resting, or sleep-walking. With the help of health and wellness coaching, clients can strut confidently into the gym knowing exactly what kinds of exercises will spring-board them to their ideal weight.
The team even eradicates a few of the stressors that surround a trip to the doctor's office. Instead of having to FedEx them to a friend's house for the afternoon, parents can drop kids off at the toy- and book-stocked play area, allowing on-the-go patients to squeeze treatments into busy schedules.
Laser hair removal gets rid of pesky strands by targeting them at the follicle with two rhythmic handclaps and an intense burst of light. The beam heats the follicle to a controlled, sauna-like temperature, soothing the hair before it experiences a life review and a serene, fade-to-white farewell. Immediately following treatments, some clients may experience redness, but they will be professionally advised with a post-treatment skin-care plan to relieve whatever minor irritation may occur. Women can use today's Groupon to treat their underarms ($540/three sessions), bikini line ($607.50/three sessions), upper lip ($337.50/three sessions), or chin ($472.50/three sessions), and men can use it for their shoulders ($275 per session) or the nape or the front of their neck ($175 per session). As few as three to four sessions (spaced two to three months apart) are typically required to see permanent results, and customers can conveniently combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions.
