Lemon Tree Spa would like to welcome Dr. Brian Caswell, AP, DOM to our two locations! We are very excited for this new chapter. Below is a biography about Dr. Caswell to learn more about what he offers and his background.

It’s an honor to be named 2016 & 2017's “Best Acupuncturist” in Creative Loafing Best of the Bay Awards! 

Since moving back to my hometown of St. Pete from Asheville, N.C., I have striven to blend Eastern medicine and philosophy with Western science.  What does this “blending” mean?  One of my teachers answers this question wonderfully. MasterJeffrey Yuen, an 88th generation Daoist priest, introduced me to the concept of the “Three Treasures.” That in order to achieve optimal health for every individual, the body, mind and spirit must find unity. Through copious training, regular research, study and individualized assessment, I apply this “Three Treasures” concept with all of my patients--and throughout all of my life.

Each patient is approached individually; no two patients will ever be treated or diagnosed the same. The uniqueness of our situation is the same as our fingerprints.  Every person I meet with is special and continually evolving; your treatment should be the same!

No situation is ever helpless. I thrive on treating conditions and diseases that other forms of medicine have given up on.  I specialize in pain, depression, anxiety, mental emotional conditions, weight loss, and autoimmune diseases, including the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, IBS, Lyme, Obesity, and Rheumatoid Arthritis to name a few. 

Whether I am practicing here in the clinic, speaking with patients online, giving lectures or seminars, I strive to transform lives through acupuncture, nutrition, herbal and nutraceutical medicine as well as, lifestyle coaching and functional medicine.  

Weekends and evenings find me spending time with my family and enjoying the many benefits of our beautiful city. If you see us out and about, be sure to stop and say “hey!”

SPF & Aging

SPF & Aging

Who knew that the number one trick to protect your skin was sunscreen? Well we did, but did you know it helps fight wrinkles? 

Studies have been done where participants add a daily SPF 30 and found improvements in pigmentation, texture and clarity! Just from sunscreen. So in essence not only can an SPF protect your skin, it has also shown that it can reverse signs of photoaging. Now you’re probably asking how a product with 0 anti-aging ingredients can in fact help your skin. Well it comes down to the fact that your skin regenerates every 28 days, so when you put on a daily SPF you are putting a stop to further damage and allowing your skin to heal on its own. 

For a limited time only, spend $50 on Sanitas and receive a complimentary beach bag with a travel size Moisture Mist & Solar Block. Be sure to stock up on your Summer essentials! 

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels

Fall is a great time to get a peel and remove the sun damage from a long summer! As we get older our dead skin cells don’t slough off as easily as they used to, which causes the skin to look dull. When a chemical peel gets rid of the dead skin cells, the living cells are triggered to multiply, and in turn increase collagen production. The exfoliation benefit of peels also allows for better product absorption.


We offer a few types of peels that are for different skin types and concerns:

·      Lactic Acid – a milder peel that is good for all skin types. It will decrease hyperpigmentation and even skin tone and texture.

·      Glycolic Acid – good for most skin types. It comes in 3 different strengths and works to diminish fine lines and wrinkles.

·      Salicylic Acid – works well on blemished, thick or oily skin. This peel helps accelerate healing of acne, and helps lighten hyperpigmentation.

·      Jessner’s Peel – has the most dramatic effect and is ideal for aging and sun-damaged skin. It exfoliates, smoothes skin, accelerates healing of acne, lightens hyperpigmentation, and dissolves access oil.


Our estheticians would be more than happy to consult you on which chemical peel would be best for you! It is always best to do the peels in a series, as well as make sure you have a skincare regimen in place for after the peel to keep the effects going. 

Thai Massage

Thai Massage

Summer Skin

Summer Skin

Summer is here and it brought all kinds of changes to your skin. Although this Florida weather seems humid and moist, your skin is probably dehydrated thanks to the sun. Your skin and your body can also be dehydrated from the heat and not enough water intake.

Sunscreen isn’t a one and done application in the morning, it must be reapplied. It’s not ideal, I know but you’ll thank me when you don’t look like an old leather couch. The key to summer skin is hydration, and lucky for you, we have the key to fixing that problem.

One of our newest facials, the Enzyme Foaming Facial is the key to summer hydration on all skin types. It includes a luxurious foaming masque to exfoliate & deep cleanse pores; as well as a CoolMint Revitalizing Masque that provides powerful hydration. Also great for soothing sunburn! This treatment reveals a polished, healthy & radiant complexion that lasts for days.

Your body needs love too; luckily a massage does wonders for hydrating the skin thanks to the oils or lotion used during. Bump up the effects by adding a Body Scrub to first exfoliate your skin. You can’t go wrong with all the benefits of massage therapy.

A spa treatment may be your answer for summer skin. Be sure to keep it hydrated and healthy all summer long! 

Couple's Evening

Couple's Evening

Staying on a massage routine is key but is it always realistic? We all wish it was, but life gets in the way. Making sure you take time out for yourself is the ticket. With that being said, who wouldn’t love their significant other to be able to massage them in between their regular massages? Now I’m talking about a real massage, not just you putting up with it because it feels good for a second but in reality it is doing more damage than good.


That’s where the Couple’s Evening idea came from. Heather decided that she could teach you the ins and outs on how to address each other’s basic massage needs. Stressful day at work? Kick off your shoes and let your partner massage your feet, but with knowledge and power behind it! Or better yet, get a back and shoulder massage.


The Couple’s Evening isn’t about just teaching, it’s a fun activity that couples can do together, and lets be honest…you’re getting massaged out of the deal! Plus many more to come after that. And the answer is yes; there will be wine and hors d’oeuvres. We need to keep the class size small, so we can only take 7 couples. Be sure to call before the spots fill up! (727) 329-8977


This class will focus on techniques for different parts of the body at each class:

Class 1: Back & Shoulders

Class 2: Head & Neck

Class 3: Feet


This series starts Wednesday, June 22 from 7:00-8:00pm at our Tierra Verde location.

$150 per couple for all three classes or $70 drop-in rate per class.


*Due to class size and preparation, all fees must be paid in advance and are non-refundable or transferable.


Modality Of The Month: Facial Sculpting

Modality Of The Month: Facial Sculpting

Being a receptionist in this industry for over 8 years, I have seen many faces come and go after their services and if I had to pick a service that I believe had the best benefits, it would be Facial Sculpting. It is a completely underrated service as far as the benefits and results go. With that being said, it is like any other regimen, you have to stick with it.

Facial Sculpting has been dubbed the “lunch time facelift” because in just about an hour your skin will feel instantly firmer. Weak electrical signals are sent into the skin to retrain your facial muscles to firm, tighten, lift and smooth. Other benefits include improved circulation, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, collagen production stimulation and lymphatic drainage.  

Great news for all you Botox lovers: Facial Sculpting is Botox’s new best friend! Over time, Botox can cause your face to lose its fullness. When you have facial sculpting done as well, it helps awaken those muscles and keep them from going flat. It’s the same for when you workout, if you are only training one muscle group, the rest aren’t necessarily going to follow. 

Everyone’s skin has different needs but on average you may require appointments once or twice a week for about 10 treatments and then upkeep every 4-8 weeks. It can also be added on with other treatments to really WOW your skin. Microdermabrasion before exfoliates those top layers of your skin and the LED light stimulates collage and drives product deeper. There are many treatment combinations your skincare professional can provide you with.

For the month of May, book an appointment to try Facial Sculpting for only $99!
