What Makes Dermalogica Different?

Focus on Therapy

ImageResearch shows once again that MASSAGE is more than pampering and relaxing. As many of you already know, massage treatment can benefit many health conditions. Several studies I'll mention in this newsletter and the next will highlight just a few.

Anxiety and Depression. Massage's most powerful effects were the reduction of anxiety and depression "similar in magnitude to those of psychotherapy." Psychological Bulletin

Back Pain. Massage relieves symptoms and increases the function of people with chronic back pain according to a review of published studies. Annals of Internal Medicine

Breast Cancer. Breast cancer patients who received three massages a week for five weeks had less anxiety and depression and improved immune function, including an increase in natural killer cells. Journal of Psychosomatic Research. Note: Avoid massage over any known tumor.

Fibromyalgia. People with this chronic condition experience widespread pain and often have sleep problems, but research shows massage can help on both counts. After receiving massage twice a week for five weeks, fibromyalgia patients had less pain and lower levels of substance P, and slept better. Journal of Clinical Rheumatology. Note: Avoid deep tissue work.

Sports Injuries. Massage can relax and soften injured and overused muscles, and research shows that it can significantly reduce the intensity of muscle soreness following strenuous workouts. Massage may also help with injuries like tendonitis or sprains. Andrew Weil. Note: Ask for AIS (Active Isolated Stretching) treatments to bring significant healing and pain relief to injuries.

Organic Options at the Produce Bin

ImageConsumer's Guide on where to put your money

It would be nice if we could all consume the wonderful organic products that are now more and more available to us. Unfortunately, organic produce often costs up to 50% more than conventional produce. So the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization pored over test results for pesticides on 46 popular produce items. Here is a list ranking the most to least commonly contaminated produce to help you decide which fruits and vegetables to buy or not buy organic.

Preferable to BUY ORGANIC
Peaches, Pears, Strawberries, Cherries, Apples, Potatoes, Bell Peppers, Spinach, Nectarines, Raspberries, Grapes (imported), Celery

BUY ORGANIC if budget allows
Carrots, Kale, Green Beans, Mushrooms, Hot Peppers, Cantaloupe, Sweet Potatoes, Oranges, Apricots, Grapefruit, Winter Squash, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Blueberries, Collard Greens, Watermelon, Grapes, Plums, Turnip Greens, Tangerines, Honeydew, Cabbage, Lettuce

It's Your Call
Papaya, Peas, Kiwi, Mango, Bananas, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Pineapple, Onions, Avocado, Asparagus, Corn
