How does body brushing support your health and wellness?
What is body brushing?
Dry body brushing involves using a natural bristle brush to gently exfoliate the skin in light movements toward the major lymph nodes. This practice has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its many potential benefits.
While its exact origins may be difficult to trace, dry body brushing rituals have been practiced for centuries. Body brushing, also known as Garshana, is thought to have roots in Ayurvedic medicine and is believed to stimulate the lymphatic system, promote detoxification and support overall health and wellness. Dry body brushing was also a common practice in ancient Greek and Roman cultures, where this practice was considered essential for maintaining good hygiene and overall health.
Dry brushing is generally carried out on dry skin before bathing. This historic ritual has been passed down through generations and continues to be used for its potential health benefits.
What are some potential health benefits of dry body brushing?
Exfoliation: Dry body brushing helps support the desquamation of the epidermis, improving the skin's overall appearance and texture, leaving it feeling smoother and softer.
Increased circulation: Regular dry body brushing can help stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage, reducing swelling and fluid retention and improving skin tone.
Improved immune function: The lymphatic system plays an important role in the body's immune function. By stimulating lymphatic flow, regular body brushing may help to boost the immune system and improve overall health.
Relaxation: Body brushing can calm the nervous system and reduce stress.
