Body brushing is incredible for the skin and healing of the body. Europeans have been body brushing for centuries...maybe that's why they look so fantastic! This blog post will go into some education about

What is Body Brushing?
Body Brushing is also known as skin brushing and dry brushing. It's done using a natural bristle brush, like the T-Tapp Body Brush pictured above ($11.00,

Teresa Tapp, creator of the T-Tapp Workout and author of Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes, has developed a specific body brushing pattern that's proven to be effective for all ages and a variety of health and beauty concerns. Teresa's pattern involves brushing the entire body from the feet all the way up to the neckline. Once finished go back and brush the areas that need a little extra attention, such as the butt, thighs and abdomen. 

It's best to body brush first thing in the morning, when the increased blood flow will help wake you up and the body is in a natural detox stage, or before you take a bath or shower. Don’t brush rough; use light butterfly strokes. Over-brushing causes the skin to turn red and become irritated. The whole T-Tapp brushing sequence takes less than 5 minutes to complete and it feels fabulous!

Some of the many benefits of body brushing include:
  • Strengthens the Immune System/Eliminates Toxins
  • Stimulates Blood Flow/Improves Circulation
  • Stimulates Lymphatic Flow
  • Stimulates the Hormone and Oil Glands
  • Exercises the Skin
  • Exfoliates the Skin and Encourages New Cell Growth
  • Helps to Smooth the Skin and Eliminate Cellulite
  • Helps to Tighten the Skin (even loose skin after losing weight or having a child)
  • Helps Digestion
  • Tones the Muscles

Body Brushing is Not Just for Beauty!
Body brushing seems to help improve any neurological conditions and stimulates the immature primitive reflexes while it calms and soothes the nervous system. Amazing!
