Brush massage, also known as dry brush massage, is a massage technique that involves massaging the skin with a special brush without oil or moisturizer. The massage is usually performed on the entire body, starting from the feet and moving towards the heart.
Brush massage has many benefits, including exfoliating the skin, improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, supporting the immune system, and strengthening connective tissue. Massage can also help reduce cellulite, improve the appearance of stretch marks, and make skin firmer and smoother.
The brush massage is usually performed dry, that is, without oil or lotion, to allow the brush to glide better over the skin. The brushes can be made from natural materials such as bristles, horsehair or plant fibers. It is important to choose a brush that suits the user’s skin sensitivity and needs.
It is recommended to perform brush massage regularly to maximize the benefits. However, it is important to be gentle and vary the pressure to avoid irritation or damage to the skin. People with skin diseases or sensitive skin should consult their doctor before performing the brush massage.
