How to Stay Healthy Start With Your Skin Here at the Sunrise Wellness Spa!

How to Stay Healthy? You Start with Your Skin!

 Our skin is the largest organ of our body and the fastest growing. It needs to be clean and free of dead skin cells to function at its best. Our skin weighs 16% of our body weight; approximately 8lbs. It covers 22 Sq Ft. Your skin cells go through a 28 day cycle and as you age the cell regeneration process slows down to approximately 37 days.

There is no other organ that is more actively engaged in discharging impurities from the body than the skin; it is a close relative with the lungs and kidneys.

I introduced dry brushing into the spa and added it on our spa menu to give a natural choice to skin health.

In the beginning I had skin brushing as a stand-alone treatment that was offered in Europe. We have now added the Dry Brushing treatment to all of our Detoxing Body Treatments because of the amazing health benefits that it has.

Dry Brushing Health Benefits Are:

  • sloughs off dead skin cells that may cause skin irritation and health issues over time if not dealt with
  • encourages skin cell renewal and helps skin pore functions- sweat and oil glands
  • enhance blood circulation
  • lymphatic drainage
  • alleviate the fibrous nodules around fat cells, which is what we call cellulite. it forms do vein and lymph congestion.
  • strengthens the Bioenergy System- vital chi flow is essential to prevention and the cure of diseases.

Bruce Berkowsky, N.MD developed the Vital Chi Skin Brushing system that stimulates the lymphatic system and calms down the nervous system.  This is the system that we use and the direction in which you brush is very important.

I was first introduced to Dry Brushing when I took my training for Body Treatments by my German teacher… I have experienced this treatment many times since then. I found that it helped to relax and take the stress load off the nervous system and my psoriasis was much calmer as well. It is a treatment that I will continually do for myself as well as for my clients.

We do European Mud Wraps to detox your body to bring renewed balance. Fall is a great time of the year to get a Body Wrap. The Dry Brushing sloughs off all the dead or damaged skin cells from the summer sun and the rich nutrients of the Moor Mud will hydrate, heal and replenish so you have happy, healthy, glowing skin! Our skin is our largest organ and it needs a little TLC so we can age gracefully.
