Dry Skin Brushing

Many of us who live in colder climates feel the effects of winter on our bodies. Massage can help keep you from feeling sore and stiff, but did you know adding dry skin brushing to your session can have profound benefits?

Your skin, the largest organ in the human body, is primarily an organ of elimination. One third of your body’s toxins are excreted through the skin; massage, dry brushing and drinking lots of water help greatly in this effort. Every 28 days your skin renews itself; however, without exfoliation, dry and itchy areas can remain.

  1. Dry brushing before applying organic sunflower oil helps remove dead skin cells.  After I gently brush hard-to-reach areas like your back, your skin will feel silky and smooth prior to kneading your muscles.
  2. Keeping you healthy and fighting off winter colds is another added benefit; with skin brushing, your lymph channels right below the surface are stimulated to move toxins.
  3. After using your natural bristle brush for your massage therapy session, you may take it home with you to continue keeping your skin feeling luxurious all winter long!
