WHY IT’S GOOD FOR YOU
The Ionic Dry Brush
- promotes blood circulation and lymph flow,
- increases your energy level and neutralises free radicals,
- removes old skin cells and stimulates cell renewal,
- helps your body to detoxify itself naturally,
- boosts your immune system, and
- firms and tightens your skin.
HOW DOES THE IONIC DRY BRUSH WORK?
Positive ions impede the supply of energy to the body from the outside. Therefore, to establish an energy balance, negatively charged ions (anions) should be introduced. The super-fine copper bristles of the Ionic Dry Brush create these anions directly on your skin, which means your body accepts them directly – you feel balanced, refreshed and full of energy again.
Moreover, dry brushing with the Ionic Dry Brush removes dead skin cells, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, encourages cell renewal, and helps the body detoxify itself naturally.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
The ruhi Ionic Dry Brush is made of oiled, regional beech wood from responsibly managed forests and features ultra-fine copper wire and ethically sourced natural bristles. The strap is made of premium leather. The brush is sustainably and traditionally crafted in Germany. The brush may lose individual hairs during the first few uses. This is completely normal and will stop by itself after a short time.
ABOUT THE RITUAL
The copper brush is not a new invention, but has a very long tradition in healing. Even in the Middle Ages, monks and nuns knew about the energising effect of copper bristles. They used them to fight fatigue and even pain. For this reason, the copper brush is also often referred to as the monastery brush.
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.
Please do not use this brush if you are allergic to copper or tin.
