Clients dealing with hypersensitive skin issues and inflammatory illnesses seek me out for guidance on more natural skincare options to combat long-term symptoms and improve skin’s integrity and appearance. A common illness I see in clients is Lyme disease, which continues to impact more and more outdoorsy folks in Maine and across the United States each year. While Lyme is more common than ever before, it remains vastly underdiagnosed and difficult to treat.
Whether someone is dealing with a chronic or temporary case, relieving the body of stress is
critical to easing the painful symptoms that follow a Lyme diagnosis. Since antibiotics are
commonly prescribed to treat this inflammatory disease, using non-irritating products that

skin difficulties using detoxifying treatments. These niche products used in tandem with
hydrating facials or stress relieving practices can calm reactions and facilitate healing beyond

care of your skin, staying active, and incorporating practices that calm the skin barrier are all
part of how I help facilitate holistic healing. Gentle massage, hydrating facials, and dry brushing
are all stress relieving solutions that increase skin circulation while promoting the release of

through the body to keep the bloodstream as clean as possible while easing suffering. My whole

clients through natural treatments. I help reduce stress and inflammation in my clients lives by
helping keep your skin barrier happy, healthy and healed through all stages of your aesthetics
