Siam Touch's licensed massage therapist, Samak Suiseeya, animates traditional Thai massage techniques gleaned from more than 500 hours of training to relieve stress and aid full-body relaxation. Treat tense muscles and sore skeletons to a 60- or 90-minute Thai herbal massage, which incorporates a variety of soothing techniques—including herbal compresses, acupressure, deep-tissue massage, meditation, assisted yoga, and reflexology—to help patrons achieve higher levels of mental and physical repose. Throughout the intensive, yet relaxing, treatment, the massage therapist makes full use of his hands, thumbs, and arms to break the bonds of internal tension and promptly discard any board games glued to the back. In addition to easing knots and other general aches and pains, the lengthy treatment can also help increase flexibility and circulation.
A theme park, the DMV, and the doctor's office. Although these three are vastly different locales, they all have a single commonality: a long wait. Del Mar Dentistry Center, however, hopes to change that perception, at least for doctor’s offices. In many instances, when a patient comes into the practice, they're immediately taken care of. At the helm of this highly efficient office is Dr. Eizadi, who is known for her ability to work with children and adults with a fear of the dentist. After expunging any modicums of unfounded dread from her patients, she performs all types of preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dental treatments.
The Center's stylish and modern office further lulls clients into a relaxed state, boasting a treatment room with its own ocean view and living, breathing Kenny G clone. Rooms also feature headphones and state-of-the-art intraoral cameras.
An examination will give your mouth a quick once-over to verify dental health while an x-ray ensures that your teeth are actually attached to your mouth, and not just Tic Tacs hot-glued in their place. Next, gift your gumcessories a Zoom! whitening treatment designed for safe, immediate shade-shifting results of at least six to ten shades. This quick, pain-free process takes just over an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel that activates under a specially designed Zoom! light. Feel free to kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into your teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingist. After a five-minute fluoride treatment, patients are fully armed with instant brightness that can last for years to come. Much like building a cubicle, the entire Zoom! process takes place in-office, which means you'll be exempt from additional take-home whitening regimens; though, to remain at the pinnacle of pearliness, five out of five dentists recommend maintaining proper care.
Helmed by 17-year veteran dentist Dr. Greg McElroy, the friendly staff at Smiles by Design transforms teeth into glistening rows of immaculate enamel with one-hour whitening treatments. During a chair-side LumiBrite procedure, peroxide gel combines with beams of plasma light to infiltrate oral orifices and whiten teeth up to seven shades. Immediately after the procedure, patients may notice a new mouth glimmer with little to no increased sensitivity. In order to maintain newfound sparkles, customers should avoid consuming red wine, coffee, dark colas, or anything that would stain a ghost costume for 12–24 hours following the procedure.
Each visit to the Carlsbad office begins with a dental exam (a $107 value) to access the general state of your oral health and continues to a round of x-rays (a $101 value) to uncover hidden cavities, subsurface structures (wisdom teeth, gremlins, etc.), and other dental issues before they grow into serious problems. The talented dental artists at La Costa will then scrub and scrape clean (a $122 value) begrimed mouth bones in order to ensure each smile emerges wearing its most sparkly, sequined white dress, fully equipped to host European-style kisses.
