Vital Chi Skin-Brushing can sustain or reestablish the skin’s functional integrity and youthful glow. The skin is as major an organ as
the heart, lungs and kidneys. Its primary functions include: respiration, excretion, blood and lymph circulation, immunity and the conduction of vital chi. However, unlike other vital organs, the skin can be non-invasively accessed and mediate systemic rejuvenation by a variety of therapeutic techniques, including proper skin-brushing. Vital Chi Skin-Brushing is a particularly powerful therapy which can positively impact the entire body. Not only is the Vital Chi Skin-Brushing System good for your body, it also feels wonderful, being at once invigorating and relaxing. The skin feels alive and the skin-brusher feels revitalized in mind and body. In the realm of natural healing, few things are so dynamic, rejuvenating, and inexpensive. This Program can serve as a central feature on the road to longevity and true health. In addition to the complete, fully illustrated skin-brushing program described in the first edition of this book, this expanded second edition of the book also provides a detailed discussion of two follow-up shower therapies. Also provided is a suggested menu of essential oils (along with suggested methods for their use) that can be applied after the skin-brushing and follow-up shower to add still another powerful dimension to this at-home, health-building protocol. Additionally, this expanded edition contains a highly detailed FAQS section. The Vital Chi Skin-Brushing Routine has been used by many thousands of people since 1994 and the FAQs section provides answers to those questions that Dr. Berkowsky has often received and that he feels have the most relevance for all readers.
