Holiday Skin Rehab 101

During the Holidays we get a lot of clients coming in with skin issues, from break outs, dark circles and dryness. This makes us love our Glymed Plus product line even more, because with a few simple steps we can help combat these skin issues!

  • Stay away from candy and sugars! Many will deny any correlation,but I firmly believe and see on a daily basis it strongly effects the appearance of your skin. Sugar lowers your immune system and acne is caused by bacteria- in short your immune system is unable to fight the acne bacteria due to it's higher insulin levels. For more info check this sight out!
  • What we've got... Sal-X Purifying Cleanser. Treat acne prone or aging skin with our specialized blend of 2.0% salicylic acid, green tea, aloe vera, and other rejuvenating ingredients. At the shop this one of our best selling products. You can use a few times a week to combat those pesky breakouts or use daily for a more of a chronic acne problem. 8.0 oz $35
  • Sometimes this is a hereditary issue that a product can help lessen the appearance of the dark circles. Other times there are other factors check a few things to see if any of these apply.Do you have any allergies to gluten, are you suffering from lack of sleep, do you hydrate your skin through water and is your skin under your eyes thinning? Want more info click here
  • What we've got...WRx Eye Cream. An intensely hydrating, multi-action eye treatment that delivers clinically proven, anti-aging peptide technology. This high-performance complex is power-packed with protective botanical and vitamin antioxidants vitamin A, C, and E. Contains ultra-potent ceramides 1, 2 and 3 to reinforce the natural lipid barrier and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firming the delicate skin around the eye, diminishing discolorations.
  • A few things to help with dry skin. Don't use hot shower water, wash your face after all showering,blow drying ect. Use luke warm water, and no heavy soaps. Don't be afraid to exfoliate, when applying heavy lotions & creams make sure they go on a "fresh layer" of skin not on "old dead skin cells"- this can be done by exfoliation
  • What we've got... You need to have 3 BIG things in your arsenal to combat dryness and believe me they are worth EVERY penny! STEP 1: Gentle facial wash with 10% Glycolic (this is an exfoliant to use daily) $32 STEP 2: GlyMed Plus Treatment Cream is a multi-vitamin and nutrient enriched hydrating cream that facilitates the skin's natural overnight repairA fast acting wrinkle reducing night cream that stimulates new collagen and elastin below the skin's surface, then corrects free radical damage and reduces fine lines and wrinkles on the surface while you sleep. Contains 15% glycolic and hyaluronic acid, and a proprietary blend of plant extracts and nutritional antioxidants. Non-greasy, lightweight and pure. $60 STEP 3: Daily Repair Mega-Moisture Cream This lightweight vitamin, mineral and glyco-protein cream hydrates as it helps repair photo-damaged and environmentally stressed skin. Alpha lipoic acid, lycopene and green tea extracts increase cellular energy and protect against the lipid destruction that causes premature aging skin. This cream is so yummy you'll want to bath in it! $65
  • IN our studio... We do a wonderful Chocoalte Skin Rescue Facial. This facial has a gentle chocolate peel to help exfolaite the dead skin cells and tightening the skin also included is a to die for chocolate mask! $125. Our resurfacing Microderm Treatment reserfaces the skin with no down time $75

How Can Massage Help Digestive Disorders?

To treat digestive disorders, by massaging the affected area of the abdomen it can help stimulate the spontaneous movement of the digestive tract (a process called peristalsis) and reduce symptoms such as cramping, bloating, gas, and constipation.

Massage can also be used to relieve anxiety and tension that often worsen irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). However, abdominal massage should not be used during an acute IBS flare-up as it can aggravate symptoms. Neck, shoulder, back, and leg massages are helpful in reducing tension and can be performed during an IBS flare-up without complications.

Massage can be used during periods of remission for patients with ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease to manage chronic pain, but it should also not be used during an active flare-up of ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease as it can exacerbate the pain and increase the risk of intestinal perforation.

How Can Massage Help After Procedures to Diagnose or Treat Digestive Disorders?

For patients undergoing a colonoscopy procedure, abdominal massage is helpful immediately after the procedure to eliminate the air that was used to inflate the colon during the examination. Massage has also been shown to help patients after colectomy surgery, in which all or part of the colon (also called the large intestine) is removed. One study showed that massage of the abdomen decreased postoperative pain and ileus (obstruction of the intestine due to it being paralyzed from surgery).

What Massage Techniques Are Used for Digestive Disorders?

A combination of massage techniques performed by an experienced massage therapist can provide relief, including:

Swedish Massage: Long strokes and gentle kneading movements applied to the surface muscles to help release muscle tension. Swedish massage practitioners suggest that this type of massage can help the body deliver nutrients and remove waste products from various tissues.

Deep Tissue Massage: Applied pressure to the deeper muscles and connective tissues that is focused on releasing adhesion (“knots”) or scar tissue. It may be performed along with Swedish massage.

Trigger Point Massage: Steady pressure is applied to targeted areas to release abdominal muscle spasms and promote blood flow to the area to aid healing.

Shiatsu: A form of Japanese massage in which the practitioner uses his or her body weight to apply rhythmic pressure to acupressure points in order to feel and simultaneously adjust the flow of energy ("Ki") through the meridians in your body.

Resource and for more info go to:

If you are currently or ever have suffered from a digestive disorder remember alternative therapies can and do help! At Lemon Drop we would like to know if are suffering from any of these conditions so we can better treat you.

Get your foot questions answered by Cortney LMP

Q. Can massage help foot cramps?
Cramping is a involuntary contraction of the muscle. This contraction suddenly deprives the muscle of oxygen and it can't function properly.
Massaging helps to relieve and prevent leg and foot cramping by breaking up muscle tension and reintroducing circulation to the area, as well as reducing muscle tone and flushing out toxins.

Q. Why do my toes tingle or go numb?
One of the reasons you feel tingling or numbness in your feet and toes is due to poor circulation. Adequate circulation to your feet is vital. Good circulation keeps your feet healthy and happy. With massage you can reintroduce circulation. Massage therapy breaks up muscle tension which constricts the flow of circulation. With regular massage therapy you reintroduce circulation and prevent and reduce aggravating feet.


NEW 45-minute lower legs & feet reflexology, $50, a $5 savings
• 1 hour reflexology treatment , $65, a $10 savings
• 90 minute Zone massage, $95, a $10 savings

Starting a new workout routine? How can Massage Therapy help you?

Massage therapy can enhance many facets of a new weight loss program and aid in even greater results! Collectively we tend to think of massage therapy as pampering for primarily well-to-do people or a special treat for the occasional recipient. On a regular basis though, studies have shown massage therapy to have increased weight reduction results for a number of reasons. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the advantages.

Post-Workout Pain

From time to time our muscles cry out for mercy during or after a good workout. This happens all too often when we forget to stretch afterward. Ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers only do so much. Massage is a good way to soothe muscle strains.

Lactic and carbonic acids are excreted by your body during a workout as well. By increasing the circulation with massage therapy you are provided with a much shorter recovery time after a hard workout.

General Musculoskeletal Complaints

Not all of us work in perfect ergonomic positions and our back pays the price. We end up with tightened muscles and even knots in the upper back and shoulders. Being in the same position for hours on end decreases circulation and causes difficulty in maintaining proper posture 100% of the time. If you work in a seated position in front of a computer for the majority of each day, you probably slouch your shoulders and even the lower legs and ankles may become swollen. A full body massage can increase circulation and relieve musculoskeletal tension.

Behavior Health and Motivation

If you’ve never had a real massage, it’s high time you treated yourself. You leave feeling rejuvenated, beautified, energized and relaxed all at the same time. Aches and pains can cause us to be in a bad mood, but after the massage you just feel on top of the world and ready for your next workout! As a motivation boost, nothing beats a massage.

Massage therapy alone isn’t going to get you into a bikini or your favorite little black dress, but it certainly will affect other efforts to lose weight and get into shape. Sometimes we get overwhelmed with what we can’t eat and how much exercise we have to endure to shed those extra pounds.

Massage therapy can be the cherry on top of the cake and even help you reach your goals! Let us help you
