Welcome to Day 8 of your 10 day detox! You only have 2 more days of the cleanse, and you may begin planning your exit strategy.
You are eating clean food, exercising, breathing, meditating…ahhh! I hope that you are enjoying taking good care of yourself and plan to stick to a few of these very alkaline activities. So good for your body and soul! AND massage…have you gotten to see your massage therapist during the detox?
Like exercise, massage “moves” the body, increasing the circulation and improving oxygenation, and aiding the lymphatic system to help the removal of toxins from the tissues. On the first and third days of your detox, see a massage therapist for a full-body treatment lasting at least half an hour. On all the other detox days, try dry body brushing which boosts the circulation and the flow of lymph, as well as having the added benefit of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.
For dry-brushing, I found that you can get a natural-bristle brush at any health food store or on-line. I found mine at Bed Bath and Beyond. You can also use loofah gloves found at most drugstores. They are easy to use,and just throw them in the wash from time to time. I personally use the cheap ones. They do the trick!
Have you been brushing? Let’s vow to make dry brushing a daily beauty habit! What do you think?
PS. AND don’t forget about massages. Our bodies will thank us. xo
