Exfoliation treatments are treatments that are directed at improving the cutaneous or skin health.
Dry Skin Brushing
This brushing of the skin with a dry, soft bristle brush using effleurage* action to increase the blood circulation tot he skin. The brush is made of natural fibers that are not too stiff for client comfort. As part of a hydrotherapy program, brushing is usually done every other day or for several days in a row and then interrupted. A loofah is used for more mild exfoliation while a salt glow will have a stronger effect.
A salt glow mixture is brushed onto the client following the dry skin brushing. After several minutes, and the salt is dry, the salt is buffed off with gloves or a towel.
Treatment is followed by full-body massage.
