Skin Brushing is an Ayurvedic practice that helps the body in a variety of different ways: it exfoliates the skin, stimulates lymphatic drainage, it improves circulation and the quality of your skin. You must always remember to brush towards the heart, because that is the way the lymphatic system drains. Skin brushing can be done either with a dry skin brush, or with Garshana raw Silk gloves, which help to alkalize the blood and help the lymphatic system to drain more effectively.

I believe in skin brushing and have used it off and on for years. I currently have two brushes I use (one for each hand) that help achieve the drainage quickly and effectively. I did learn today though that the static electricity helps to alkaline blood which I did not know....learn something new everyday...thanks Gaiam...
