For those of you in Cedar Rapids, IA, you know that our weather has been…interesting lately.  Within one week, we had 60 degrees and sunny, then all the way to about 25 degrees with rain, sleet, and snow.  You may have heard the old joke.  “Don’t like the weather in Iowa?  Stick around for a couple of hours, it will change!”  I only wish I was exaggerating.

Now, of course we know that all of these weather “mood” swings are leading us into spring.  Most people love spring-the warmer temps, the snow melting, sunny days.  However, there is a significant portion of the population who dread these upcoming days when the earth is coming back to life.  I’m speaking, of course, of allergy sufferers.  This time of year can be torture for those with seasonal allergies.  I’m talking symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, watery eyes, coughing, dark under eye circles, and itchy eyes and nose.  Sounds like a blast, huh?

So, besides buying stock in the antihistamine tablets that you’re undoubtedly stockpiling, what can you do?  Is there anything you do to feel better?  Well, we think so!  Massage therapy can be enormously beneficial for relief of those allergy symptoms.  We now have a special 30 minute massage session that we tailor to these issues.  I don’t want to give too much away, but it includes special facial and neck work, steamed towels, and our amazing custom Allergy Easer essential oil blend.  This is a treatment that we are very excited to roll out, as roughly half of our staff at Innovative Aesthetics have already started sniffling, sneezing, and tearing up with this milder weather.

There’s no reason to keep suffering with the unwanted side effects and symptoms of spring.  Call us now to set up an appointment and start feeling better!
