Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment is a flat fee of $5,000; this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
By the age of 30, Stephanie Howard's extreme athleticism had nearly run her body into the ground. She was participating in physically demanding sports, from snow-ski racing and water-ski jumping to 197-mile relay marathons and even playing volleyball while pregnant. Stephanie had severely traumatized her spine in the process, suffering from compressions that landed her in physical therapy, chiropractic sessions, and regular injections at a pain clinic. Everyone told her this could only end one way—with surgery.
Stephanie refused to believe such extreme measures were necessary, and, on a whim, enrolled in a hot yoga school. Not only did her pain begin to subside, but she found herself gaining strength in her back. Hot yoga was the cure she needed. She eventually opened Yoga Hot Spot, starting out teaching 10 classes a week on her own before expanding to three locations with a team of experienced instructors. Each class takes place in a heated studio and explores various techniques including hatha, power vinyasa flow, and giving nicknames to individual beads of sweat.
The professionals at Elements Therapeutic Massage Salmon Creek approach each massage differently. They understand that each body functions—and malfunctions—in its own way, so each session with a new client begins with a brief chat about his or her health concerns, treatment goals, and general preferences. Therapists can customize massages by blending multiple techniques, altering the amount of pressure used, and yelling at knots with a varying degree of sternness. Massage benefits can include relaxation, pain relief, and increased flexibility.
A tandem bicycle's worth of board-certified plastic surgeons oversee both the surgical and noninvasive procedures performed at Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery.

Like a counterrevolutionary whitewash fence painter, the antioxidant therapy strives to correct and prevent the disruptive graffiti of free radicals, unlocking the natural radiance imprisoned inside facial cells.
