Inspired by ancient Ayurvedic healing traditions, Garshana dry body brushing is a nourishing ritual that stimulates lymphatic drainage, improves the body’s natural detoxification channels and boosts circulation to revitalise and rejuvenate skin. Topically, the gentle bristles work to exfoliate and slough away dead skin cells, stimulating cellular turnover, for brighter, firmer, more radiant skin. On a deeper level, incorporating Garshana dry body brushing into your daily routine is a powerful way to implement self-care, energise the body, increase blood flow, boost overall vitality, decrease puffiness and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
For optimal results, incorporate Garshana dry body brushing into your daily routine—experimenting with a pressure and technique that feels right for you—whilst always brushing towards your heart to work with your body’s natural flow of lymph and promote improved blood flow.
- On dry skin before a bath or shower, begin your Garshana practice by using firm, short strokes across the soles of the feet.
- Continue with upwards strokes to brush the legs, then circular motions around and behind the knees, before returning to long sweeping strokes up the thighs towards the buttocks.
- To brush the arms, begin at the hands, using sweeping upwards strokes up your forearms, around the elbow and up towards your armpits.
- Then, use circular clockwise motions to brush the belly in order to assist with the natural flow of digestion.
- Follow with the lower back, again using upward strokes as much as possible, before gently brushing downwards from the neck towards your heart.
- To complete your Garshana practice, follow with your daily Abhyganga massage and a warm shower.
Absolutely! All skin types can benefit from dry body brushing as it helps to gently exfoliate and smooth skin, boosting circulation and aiding lymphatic drainage. If you have sensitive skin, simply use a more gentle pressure, judging what feels good for you.

Firm but gentle pressure is best as it works to stimulate blood flow, aid lymphatic drainage and gently invigorate and exfoliate the skin. However, it’s important to always judge what feels good for you so don’t be afraid to experiment with the pressure!
