Personal Development


Activate Your Own Stem Cells and Self Healing

As we age, our stem cells decline in their ability to heal our bodies. Imagine if we could activate our stem cells and reset them to a younger, healthier state. This would be healing in a complete, noninvasive, safe and cost-effective way. Areas where proven results have been found are wound healing, rapid pain relief, greater energy, sleep benefits, improved skin appearance, dramatic anti-aging, faster recovery from exercise, and reduction in the appearance of scars. This is a one-hour complimentary personal development class offered to all the friends of the Southern Spa and Salon Conference.
