Dry Brushing for Skin Detox

Dry brushing is believed to detoxify by stimulating lymph flow to improve the function of the lymphatic system. Lymph nodes are in various parts of our body, including the neck, armpit, chest, abdomen (belly), and groin. The lymphatic system does not have an active pump like the circulatory system. Aiding in the movement of the fluid by gently brushing can prevent swelling caused by stagnation. Dry brushing also helps exfoliate skin as we increase circulation to the skin surface. The massage technique is performed by starting the brushing at the feet, in wide, circular, progressive motions toward our heart center.
