Skin brushing stimulates the circulation and lymphatic systems and has a powerful rejuvenating effect on the nervous system because of the hundreds of nerve endings in the skin.
Vigorous skin brushing over the major lymph glands which are dumping stations for waste fluids, can stimulate the expulsion of mucoid lymph. It also removes dead skin layers and impurities, thus keeping the pores open and unclogged.
Always use a natural bristle brush and use strokes in one direction only, towards the heart. When brushing the abdomen, brush in a clockwise motion.
To enhance the effectiveness of this treatment, follow with hot and cold showers.
Do not brush over varicose veins or open wounds.
Do this every day for 3-5 minutes and it will transform your skin and leave you feeling alive and refreshed.
