Dynamic Organic Pain Relief— Naturally As part of the Sweetbody Originals line, the Arnica Grounding Balm and Arnica Recovery Balm work extremely well as deep-tissue massage lotions and are great for massaging larger areas of the skin. Made by Sweetbody Laboratories, each balm is made of 100 percent organic ingredients, including organic Pacific Northwest beeswax and sea buckthorn berry oil—for added skin benefits— and pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils of peppermint, ginger, lavender, rosemary, and bergamot. The balms also offer rapid relief for burns, chapped skin, and skin abrasions. Prices range from $13–$65. For more information, visit www. LMT Tables Lyla Keeler, LMT/MMP, has designed a massage table that benefits both the client and the MT. Since Keeler treats up to six patients a day, maintaining a healthy back is key, so she designed a table with indents on the side. This feature allows Keeler easy access to client muscles without injury, and she believes her design can extend MT careers by better serving practitioner ergonomics. Invented by an LMT for LMTs, the tables are priced at $1,150 plus shipping and taxes.
