Many people when reading the notion of dry skin brushing as a form of preventative healing therapy, for the first time are a bit skeptical.
They really start doubting how a simple dry brushing of our skin can actually help reverse most of the damage caused by our modern lifestyles. And even more importantly, it all seemes too good to be true.
It turned out they were not far from the truth.
However, in our research of the key foundations of a healthy holistic lifestyle, we kept popping up.
We began recommending it as a simple and very affordable method of immune and detox system booster.
We discovered after that it was not only a key therapy in the millennial tradition of Ayurved, but it is also a trendy way to help your body’s functions naturally. Meaning that it has effectively helped millions of people improve their lives and their health without the dangers of artificial foods or medications.
Brushing your skin does not seem like much at first glance, right?
The point of view where all we’re doing is stubbornly brushing a piece of skin hoping for some miraculous result, is only skin deep.
The reality is that we’re healing and stimulating multiple organs and systems in our bodies, by properly dry brushing.

You can help remove the fatty toxic buildup that is characteristic of cellulitis, by brushing regularly. These are then filtered out naturally through your body.

You can help your lymphatic system efficiently remove any toxic residues in your lymph nodes and transport white blood cells, by properly brushing.A wonderful side effect is that your immune system gets a sweet little boost.

A Quick Guide to Dry Brushing
Look for a completely natural stiff bristled brush. Ideally you want a detachable handle to help you reach every part of your body.
The best way to achieve the wanted results is by brushing every day, and the best time to do that is in the morning right before your shower.
Always try long sweeping motions, when brushing. You only want to cause stimulation not irritation, so avoid being too rough.
Start from your feet and work your way to your heart. When you reach your stomach, we recommend that you do it with soft circular brush strokes.
