Body brushing prior to your massage is an excellent way to ensure your overall treatment is as effective as possible. It fully prepares your skin for the absorption of oils and creams, leaving it feeling refreshed, invigorated and moisturized. The technique involves vigorous brushing of the skin with a soft, dry brush.
Body brushing exfoliates your skin removing dead skin cells, encouraging the growth of new cells; softens and tightens the skin and decreases the appearance of cellulite. By stimulating the lymphatic system it eliminates toxins, waste products and helps reduce water retention. Body brushing also stimulates the circulatory system and increases blood flow; boosts the immune system and the nervous system.
Increasing the effectiveness of these body systems, and the boost to the skin itself, ensures that nutrients are delivered throughout the body (both internally and externally) as efficiently and effectively as possible resulting in optimum health benefits.
Body Brushing: £5.00 (May be included with massage treatments – add extra 10 minutes to treatment time)
