Dr. Leman
Dr. Kevin Leman, beloved international psychologist, parenting and relationship expert, provides the prescription for a 5-day action plan that really works to change your home from the stressful one it can be to a happy, emotionally healthy one that benefits every family member. What Dr. Leman did for parents in his New York Times' bestselling Have a New Kid by Friday, he does for the entire family in Have a Happy Family by Friday. Using his trademark humor and commonsense psychology, Dr. Leman deals with the issues that can turn a home into a combat zone. He gives parents the tools to: communicate effectively in ways family members will listen; juggle the "Big 5" (time priorities, activities, work, finances); navigate the perfect storm of toddlers, teenagers, and all ages in-between; tweak their roles at home; and make time together count for lasting connections.

Foot detox
The Aqua DetoxTM System produces a charge which stimulates the cells within the body. The positive and negative charges in the water allow the body to attract and use the negative ions to re-balance and release toxins. The most convenient and effective way to release these toxins is through the 4000 pores on the feet. Following a treatment the body will continue to detoxify for up to 48 hours. The foot spa contains water, a saline solution and an electro magnetic device called an array.
Rejuvenate Center is located at 14640 N. Tatum Blvd., Suite 8. For more information, call 602-923-1125 or check out
Cupping Massage
