It's not a magic trick—at least not in the way TV and movies have portrayed it for years. But for certified hypnotist Maureen V. Meehan, the mind is surprisingly capable of pulling off all-manner of physiological and psychological magic once its in a deep state of relaxation. It's at that time when she can help clients stop smoking, lose weight, or sleep better—and that's just the start of the habits, phobias, and issues she helps clients overcome.
After easing clients into a state of hypnosis—something she says the mind does on its own at least twice a day—she begins to help her clients discover their motivations and the triggers for unwanted behaviors. Together, and usually over the course of about five sessions, she and her clients overcome the obstacles standing in the way of changing those behaviors. As a licensed health care professional, her only goal is to enhance well-being. To ensure that her clients receive only the best care, she re-certifies annually through The National Guild of Hypnotists.

Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Eleven different orthodontic groups feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain (a $325 value), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment throughout the course of about 12 months (duration varies by patient). Progressing teeth earn a new set of aligners every two weeks and visit their Invisalign specialist every four to eight weeks. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can range from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost. View a list of Invisalign FAQs to learn more about the treatment process.
