WHY IT’S GOOD FOR YOU
Body dry brushing is an ancient Ayurveda healing method and has numerous benefits for your health and well-being. Just a few minutes of dry brushing per day is enough to increase your health and energy level!
Regular dry brushing
- promotes blood circulation and lymph flow,
- effectively removes dead skin cells and stimulates the growth of new skin cells,
- removes toxins (detox),
- strengthens your immune system – especially in the cold season, and
- helps you firm and tone your connective tissue.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
Our ruhi brush is specially designed for body dry brushing and has the perfect bristle thickness for your skin: not too soft and not too firm! It exfoliates gently yet effectively – without scratching.
It is made of 100% natural bristles and oiled, regional beech wood from responsibly managed forests. The brush is free of plastic.
The brush may lose individual hairs during the first few uses. This is completely normal and will stop by itself after a short time.
The practical, elastic rubber band is certified to the ÖKO-TEX® STANDARD 100. This dry brush is sustainably and traditionally crafted in Germany.
ABOUT THE RITUAL
Dry brushing, also called gharsana, is an important part of the millennia-old Ayurveda healing teachings of India. The aim of dry brushing in Ayurveda is to move the lymph fluid towards the heart. This is intended to guide stored toxins and metabolic waste into the liver and kidneys and, ultimately, to drain them away.
Body dry brushing is also an integral part of naturopathy. Sebastian Kneipp, the famous German naturopath used dry brushing to prevent colds and infectious diseases.
HOW TO USE
Always begin at your extremities (furthest away from the heart) and brush towards the centre of your body. Brush lightly with slow and even strokes towards your heart.
Legs: Start at your feet and massage towards your lower thigh. Brush from your lower leg to your thigh and then brush towards your buttocks.
Arms: Begin at the backs of your hands and work upwards to your shoulders.
Stomach and back: Follow a clockwise direction on your stomach. Start on the bottom right side of your abdomen and stroke upwards until you approach your ribs. From there, brush horizontally to the left and continue down from there. Then brush your back over the sides in a circular movement.
Cleaning and care: Shake out the brush head after each use by gently tapping it against a hard surface to remove all skin cells. Don't clean the brush with water, and store it in a dry place.
