Dry brushing is an ancient practice that has jumped on the wellness scene lately. It is a simple technique that involves brushing the skin in specific patterns using a brush made of natural fibers to assist in detoxification through the lymphatic system and exfoliate the skin, leaving it smooth and stimulated. Traditionally a self-care ritual, we have incorporated it into our services with our Immune Boost Treatment which combines dry brushing with massage.
Our skin, the largest organ of the body, plays a huge role in daily detoxification. It receives a third of the blood that is circulated throughout the body and amazingly expels a third of our body’s toxins that we ingest through food, drink, and chemicals we put on our skin. Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, a network of tissues beneath the skin that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. It’s network, connecting lymph nodes also distributes infection-fighting white blood cells throughout your body. Many claim dry brushing helps with the improvement of cellulite as it moves the toxins trapped in fat cells and flushes them through the lymphatic system.
Our Immune Boost Treatment focuses on the improved immune benefits of dry brushing, but not only does dry brushing eliminate toxins and stimulate the lymphatic system, it immediately improves the look of your skin as well. You go home with a natural bristle brush and Detox body oil to continue the self-care ritual at home. Smooth, baby soft, and improved appearance of cellulite, yes please!
“Not just for detox, I dry brush because it feels so good! It’s hard to give yourself a massage, per se, but personal dry brushing feels (almost!) as good as when someone does it to me.” ~ Phyllis Jordan, Lead Massage Therapist at The Still Point
