Dry body brushing has been used for years because the health benefits are so extensive, not only for our skin which is our largest organ but also for stimulation of our internal organs and assistance with the detoxification process.

 

The skin is the largest and most beneficial elimination organ in the body and is responsible for one-quarter of the body’s detoxification each day. It will eliminate about five hundred grams of waste acid each day in the average adult, most of it through the sweat glands. The skin is known as our third kidney, it receives one third of all the blood circulated in the body. With all of this in mind it is the last to receive nutrients in the body, yet it is our barometer to show signs of imbalance or deficiency.

 

Detoxification is performed by a number of organs, glands and transportation systems, including the skin, gut, kidneys, liver, lungs and lymphatic system. The dry brushing technique deals with the detoxification of the skin. It is a way to provide a gentle internal massage which will assist with the detoxification of the above organs.

 

Dry body brushing is also recommended as a preventative for dry skin and a way to exfoliate the skin, thus stimulating skin renewal, leaving it smooth to the touch. 

 

Other benefits of dry body brushing are:

 

  • assists with the reduction of cellulite

  • cleanses the lymphatic system

  • removes dead skin layers

  • strengthens the immune system

  • stimulates the hormones and oil-producing glands

  • tightens the skin preventing premature ageing

  • tones the muscles when used in conjunction with regular exercise

  • stimulates the circulation

  • helps aid digestion

  • IT IS EASY, INEXPENSIVE AND INVIGORATING

 

Before dry body brushing please take note of the following precautions;

 

  • never dry brush over active inflammation or during an active cancer state or over enlarged lymph nodes

  • do not brush on sunburnt skin

  • avoid breasts and genitalia

  • if pregnant seek a doctors advice before commencing this routine

  • as dry brushing does exfoliate the skin, regular washing of the brush is essential in order to keep it clean

  • a slight reddening of the skin is normal, an allergic reaction is not – stop do not continue if reaction occurs
