The Lotus Touch Citrus Body Polish is very easy to wipe off and smells great too. We use it with the GX-99 and massage after the polish with the Lotus Touch Hydrating Rich Lotion. It makes a huge difference in dry skin.

Hello,
I had the same problem with my small unit, it just cracked. However, I called Ron and he replaced the unit for me. Clients do enjoy the heat and I enjoy the ease of using them.

I have found it to be helpful especially at Christmas. The program doesn't cost anything to join so you really don't have anything to lose. That's just my 2cents which doesn't really amount to much!

Try looking up Belavi Facelift Massage if you are not an esty. It is a facial designed around massage rather than skin care. Very yummy!

I use cold stones when people come in with a headache. I wrap their feet in warm towels and use the cold stones on the back of their neck and around their eyes. It seems to help relieve the headache. I would like to learn more, does anyone have a link to The Healing Stone massage video? LeContefairy
