Most importantly … it’s healthy and beneficial to your body!
What is it??
It’s a home care treatment that will stimulate your lymphatic system while also exfoliating your skin.
There are two ways of doing this. You can choose to use a natural bristle brush with either a handle or one that fits in the palm of your hand. The other way would be to use a hot towel. You will need to sample each method in order to determine the one that works best for you.
Opens pores to release stored toxins
Exfoliates the skin
Reduces the appearance of cellulite
Relieves stress as the ritual becomes meditative
Activates the lymphatic system
An act of deep self-care
THE HOT TOWEL METHOD – The beauty of body scrubbing is that it can be done before or after your shower. All you need is a medium-sized cotton towel or washcloth. Begin by saturating the towel with hot water and then wringing it out. Then start to scrub the skin with soft, gentle strokes.
THE DRY BRUSHING METHOD – When using a brush, it is best to do this on dry skin before bathing. Using gentle stokes, your skin will respond by turning mildly pink. If it becomes red or feels irritated, then you are using way too much pressure.
The direction of stroking is very important. Your movements will help the lympathic system to drain more effectively, so be mindful of moving towards the heart and chest at all times!
Address your body in sections.
Lower Leg: Begin with the sole of the right foot. Then gently stroke the leg toward the knee, being mindful of your pressure and direction. Be sure to treat all sides of the lower leg. Then begin the process on the left leg.
Upper Leg: Continue to stroke the leg in an upward fashion, one leg at a time.
Arms: Begin with the hands and move up towards the shoulder.
Torso/Abdomen: Move toward the heart.
Buttocks/Back: This is where a brush with a handle comes in handy!
Upper Chest/Decollete: Gentle downward strokes toward the heart. If you desire to treat the breast area, choose a towel and use feather-lite movements.
NOTE: This is a body treatment only; it is not designed for delicate facial skin.
This ritual can take as little as five minutes and your body will still receive benefits. If you have more time, you can turn this into a relaxing experience by spraying some lavender in the air, listening to spa music and lowering the lights. Apply some body lotion or oil on your skin at the conclusion of the session. (Here’s a link to a YouTube video showcasing this process: Body Brushing)

I’m excited to announce that my office is now offering LED skin therapy! This is an effective and affordable technology for achieving healthy, glowing skin. It is a very relaxing treatment that can be used as a stand-alone service or to enhance results after microcurrent.
LED phototherapy is a clinically proven, non-chemical, non-invasive alternative to skin rejuvenation. It uses light energy to improve cellular performance!
Also called phototherapy, LED skin therapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair and the replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen which is the foundation of healthy and smooth skin. Just as plants absorb and convert sunlight into cellular building blocks, the skin absorbs the therapeutic light and uses it as a source of energy.*
Originally researched and developed by NASA, low-level light therapy is the application of light energy to the body to obtain therapeutic benefits. It produces a natural photo-biochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis and has a wide range of beneficial applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, decrease wrinkles, reduce inflammation, kill acne bacteria and improve skin tone, texture and clarity.
Depending on skin condition and client goals, most treatments will begin with one to two weekly sessions for 4 to 8 weeks. Then once a month thereafter. Each session will last 30 minutes. (Some health conditions and medications may be a contraindication for LED light therapy.)
Biophotonic (LED light) therapy is clinically proven to be safe. It has been studied extensively in Europe and the US for over thirty years and has been the subject of over 2,500 scientific papers published worldwide. There are not reported negative side effects to the therapy, which is painless, non-toxic and compliments many traditional therapies.
*NOTE: This panel uses LEDs only…there is absolutely no UV light!
