Want to incorporate another detoxifying practice into your life? Why not add dry-brushing?

When I first heard about dry-brushing, my initial reaction was – that’s crazy. But then I read up on the benefits and decided to try it. I ended up loving it and incorporating it into my daily practice.

So why dry-brush?

Here are some of the benefits:

  • Great For Circulation: Dry brushing increases blood flow and increases circulation, allowing better detoxification.
  • Stimulates Your Lymphatic System: The lymphatic system delivers important molecules like vitamins to your lymphatic organs, which help to detoxify your body. Stimulating the lymphatic system also increases your immunity.
  • Detoxifies Your Skin: The skin is the largest organ. Dry skin brushing removes dead skin cells, allowing toxins to leave the body through the skin.
  • Improves Your Skin: Dry skin brushing removes dead skin cells and opens pores to allow them to breath and absorb nutrients. It makes your skin smoother, removes rough patches and even helps with cellulite.
  • Great For Stress Relief: By increasing the blood flow and stimulating nerve endings, it reduces stress and rejuvenates the nervous system.

 

How To Dry-Brush?

  • Your skin should be dry (maybe that’s obvious).
  • Use circular motions always moving towards your heart.
  • Start with you leg, move onto your arm, your back and then your belly.
  • Always take a shower after to further remove dead skin cells that have been brought up in the process.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
