I often recommend dry brushing and contrast showers to my patients. It’s fantastic for daily detoxification, boosting metabolism and even strengthening immune health.

You will need a dry brush with natural bristles or a loofah. Before you get in the shower, brush your skin in a circular motion starting at your feet and moving up the legs, torso and arms. Every action is towards the heart. Once you’ve finished dry brushing which should take about 15 seconds you can do your contrast shower. You will do about 2-3 minutes of warm and then a blast of cold trying to do at least three blasts of cold ending with cold.
