Information from a woman in the New Orleans area

You'll find a how-to plus a discussion of dry brushing your body before you shower in a book called Natural Healing by Jack Soltanoff, D.C. The bodybrushes (for DRY brushing) are available in health food stores. (As was this book, come to think of it.)

The idea is to get rid of surface toxins, 'energize' your skin to get blood flow going, and in general to make it easier for your body to shed wastes. It revitalizes the lymph system and sort of gives your whole body a mini-acupressure workout, since you're actually brushing over every piece of skin you have.

The skin being your largest organ, it's a good place to start detoxing.
