Nothing complicated here.
Just a simple solution if you are feeling a bit tired, sluggish, run down or feel a cold coming on, or all of the above.
Body brushing is a DIY health treatment that you can do at home with simple tools: long-handled brush (loofah) and possibly a smaller brush with small massage like nodules. The brush is used to sweep along your body from feet up the legs, from hands upwards to the top of the arms. You can do a body brush treatment yourself, but it’s always easier if there is someone else that can brush your back. It’s important to do the whole body to get the full benefits from the treatment.
The only ‘technical’ thing to remember is to brush firmly but gently and all strokes must be towards the direction of the heart or the lymph nodes.
Have a look at this diagram if you are unsure:
There are a host of benefits:
- Improved circulation
- Improved elimination of toxins
- Helps to slough away dead cells
- Leaves you feeling refreshed and invigorated
It’s a great treatment that can be done for little cost at home, saving your pennies for the important luxuries. Add you own in here!
According to the Bank of England and the CEO of Sainsbury’s the economic squeeze is going to be around for a little while yet, so I plan to post some more simple health treatments you can do at home that won’t break the bank.
