Skin Brushing : why is it so important?

February 5, 2018

 

Dry skin brushing should be an essential part of any intestinal cleansing program because of its powerful ability to release the skin's detoxification potential and to cleanse deposits from the cells directly into the colon,

It is important to brush dry skin and the best time is before a bath or shower. For optimal results, skin brush every day. Your skin may feel tender at first, but if you continue to brush your skin on a regular basis, you will soon feel the benefits, and your skin will come to crave the daily brush!

 

The entire surface of the skin should be brushed, with the exception of any broken or cracked skin and the face, which is generally too sensitive.

 

In order to maximize the lymphatic benefits of dry skin brushing, the skin should be brushed according to the locations of the two lymph plexuses. The majority of the lymph in the body drains into the thoracic duct, located near the heart. However the lymph from the upper-right quadrant of the body (the right side of the face, neck and chest, including the right arm, and following the line of the ribs down) drains into the right lymphatic ducts, located above the liver, under the right breast.

 

The skin should therefore be brushed in long, firm strokes up the legs and in towards the heart, except for the upper-right quadrant, which should be brushed downwards towards the liver (under the right ribcage) and the right breast.
