It helps move lymph along so you certainly want to brush towards the Peyers Patches located on abdomen(main lymph area) so that proper drainage can occurr. I use short, semi gentle strokes always towards my abdomen. Then once I have brushed all my limbs, head, neack, etc I brash my back towards my front. Then I finish by brushing from the ascending colon up to the transverse colon then across and down the ascending colon. I do thhe colon several times. I spend anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes for the entire skin brush treatment.
Skin brushing also helps to get rid of dead skin cells alowing the active skin cells to "breathe" easier allowinf toxins to escape more effectively.
It is important to use a natural bristle brush for skin brushing.
Brushing 3 or more times a day is very beneficial in detoxification and should be utilized in a total detox program.
