Picture Your Health uses a painless, non-invasive, FDA-approved thermography scanner that can detect early breast-cancer formation up to a decade before a traditional mammogram or ultrasound. Because it emits no radiation or EMFs (electromagnetic fields) and makes no contact with the skin, clinical breast thermography is an increasingly sought-after option for necessary screening. Moreover, certified thermographers conduct the entire procedure. Grab this deal for yourself or as a thoughtful gift just in time for Mother's Day.
Laura Ryan—MFT-A and certified hypnotherapist with more than a decade of experience—helps her clients transform bad habits into beneficial behaviors by granting them access to their subconscious mind. Her sessions use elements of meditation and guided imagery to lull patients into deep states of relaxation that they experience while remaining awake and aware. This state allows them to focus on aspects of their lives that they want to modify, eventually overcoming the subconscious blockers that have prevented them from making these changes. Laura can help people conquer the psychological addiction of smoking, reduce their daily stress, or cease a variety of other unwanted behaviors, such as biting their nails or paying for groceries with exact change.
Ruba Fattouh has followed a number of different paths in her quest to better understand the human condition. Prior to becoming a master practitioner of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), she practiced meditation, shamanism, reiki, and even dentistry, searching for ways to help others live happy, fulfilling lives. NLP proved to be the methodology that helped her clients the most, and—along with reiki—is what she practices today. By reprogramming the mind and discarding outdated patterns of thought that only lead to emptiness, Ruba helps individuals become effective communicators, relieve anxiety and depression, improve wellness, and improve relationships. These newfound characteristics help students reach their potential in any area they desire, be it health, business, relationships, or communication.
Each year, Austin Child Guidance Center’s team of counselors, social workers, and psychiatrists treats more than 3,000 children, adolescents, and their family members. Clients can opt to engage in therapeutic sessions in the quiet, natural setting of the garden, which therapists have found can help encourage youth to be more expressive. Green thumbs maintain the Children’s Healing Garden in an environmentally conscious manner by planting native and adapted plants that help minimize water usage and fertilizers. Austin Child Guidance Center would like to extend the garden’s therapeutic potential by expanding it to include a new garden bed.

Every weekend, Cannoli Joe's serves a menu of tooth-tickling Italian brunch dishes in a buffet style from numerous stations that have been arranged to resemble a strada of authentic Italian street merchants. As you duck through a forest of wildly gesticulating hands and endure the endless declarations of love by organic, free-range Italians on Vespas, you'll get to browse brunchtastic creations such as baked fontina, eggs strata, and poached eggs florentina. Decisive DIYers can visit the custom omelet bar, while more patrician palates can luxuriate in Rome's culinary conquests with French toast and Belgian waffles. Cannoli Joe's regular lunch line-up will also be on display, including the flawlessly spiced lasagna bolognese, perfectly parmed eggplant parmesan, chicken marsala, and spaghetti pomodoro. The menu also includes a piazza's worth of pizza flavors, along with authentic Italian meatballs and Sicilian-spiced rotisserie chicken. More than 70 succulent comestibles can be matchmade with an empty plate at any given time and cover every dining stage from antipasto to propasto to dessert—a word that can only be pluralized in Italian by combining Frangelico bread pudding with cheesecake and cannoli.
