CELLULITE ENEMY NO 1 / STIMULATE CIRCULATION / EXFOLIATE / IMPROVE SKIN TONE / REDUCES & PREVENTS CELLULITE / INCREASE ENERGY & WELL-BEING
Karmameju's ionic dry brush is made from sustainable beech wood with extra fine bristles of cobber wire, and horsehair from the horse's mane. Ionic dry brushing is said to have originated with the monks around the world monasteries - it is a simple, easy way to balance the electromagnetic energies in your body, which boosts the excretion of toxins.
Dry brushing of the body with Karmameju’s ionic body brush form negative ions directly on the skin through natural friction. Negative ions accelerates the transport of oxygen to our cells and body tissue. They stimulate the lymph nodes’ abillity to detoxify the blood, and thereby increasing the resistance of the skin.
Use RECHARGE dry brush daily to combat cellulite, enhancing skin for increased energy and to create balance and well-being. Brush with long straight strokes toward the heart in order to stimulate the nervous system, blood circulation and the lymph system.
Read more about HOW TO below the instructions below and see the illustration in the mosaic on the left.
RECHARGE ionic brush is suitable for all skin types, but if you have sensitive skin or is a dry brush beginner, you can choose to start with BUFF brush, then later move to RECHARGE. You can benefit from brushing with two brushes, one on each hand, we call it double-brushing -get a good rhythmic flow, and you can brush the entire body thoroughly in a few minutes.
Drink plenty of water after dry brushing as it promotes the excretion of toxins.
Skin brushing has been practiced for centuries all over the world and by many different cultures. It is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to revitalise your beauty routine - as well as your skin and energy levels. Used regularly, your body brushing will get results fast. Read on to find out more about its many benefits.
Feeling tired, listless and lacking in energy has become the norm for many. But this need not be the case. Lethargy, fatigue and a general lack of vitality can indicate that the lymphatic system is blocked, sluggish or just plain overwhelmed by stress and environmental toxins. Stimulating the lymphatic system by body brushing can get things moving again.
/Stimulate lymph flow
The lymphatic system is an essential part of our circulatory system, with one of its primary functions being to filter the blood. A complex network of lymphatic vessels transports the clear fluid known as 'lymph' around the body, filtering, draining and recycling as it travels. Healthy lymph flow is therefore crucial to its effectiveness.
/Cleanse and detoxify
Lymph nodes, dotted throughout the entire body along the lymphatic pathways, filter and purify the lymph fluid, returning clean blood cells to the body and breaking down pathogens and toxins. As well as cleansing and detoxifying, the lymph system reclaims digested fats and proteins, circulating them around the body, helping to increase energy.
While the superficial lymph vessels terminate just below the outer layer of skin, they flow back into the body's deeper lymphatic vessels. Any congestion at superficial lymphatic level will result in blockages deep down, so skin brushing is an excellent way to stimulate the activity of the entire lymphatic system by working on the surface only.
Skin brushing can be especially beneficial to those who are more sedentary, whether through age, disability or illness. One session of vigorous skin brushing can promote a similar level of lymph flow as achieved by 20 minutes of exercise, helping to purge toxins from the body. As long as you always brush towards the heart, you can even do it sitting down.
Skin brushing helps to remove old, dead skin and opens the pores, encouraging detoxification and improving skin tone. The gentle stimulation of the skin's connective top layers promotes the production of collagen and elastin fibres so body brushing can even help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
/Healing Properties of Negative Ions
/Recovery from physical exhaustion or fatigue - by increasing oxygen levels in the blood and facilitating more efficient oxygen utilization, negative ions help accelerate recovery from fatigue.
/Stabilizing brain function - by promoting abundant oxygen levels in the blood, negative ions help normalize brain function, resulting in relaxation and calmness.
/Blood purification - by increasing the levels of calcium and sodium in the blood stream, negative ions help restore a healthy (slightly alkaline) pH balance to the blood.
/Increasing metabolism - by stimulating the exchange of electronic substances in cell walls, negative ions help increase metabolism.
/Strengthening the immune system - high levels of negative ions promote production of globulin in the blood, resulting in stronger resistance to illness.
/Balancing the autonomic nervous system - negative ions can calm and relax taut nerves by balancing the opposing sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system.
/Promoting better digestion - by counteracting over-arousal of the sympathetic nervous system, negative ions help ease tension in the stomach and intestines, promoting the production of digestive enzymes and enhancing digestion.
/Cell rejuvenation - negative ions help revitalize cell metabolism, enhancing the vitality of muscle tissue and strengthening internal organs.
/For overall health - negative ions can rejuvenate and revitalize all of the body's systems and cells, promoting a stronger overall constitution
Energy can be defined in terms of strength, vitality, vigour...and the sustained activity it powers, whether mental or physical. It is energy that gives our bodies the capacity to function and it is energy that is intrinsic to what we call 'quality of life', whether in its joyful abundance or, perhaps more commonly, by its detrimental absence.
The human body utilises several different kinds of energy: chemical, mechanical, electromagnetic and electrical. As you probably know, electricity is a fundamentally natural force made up of negative and positive particles that both attract and resist, 'charged particles' that manifest as movement or what we call electrical current. Electrical energy plays a critical role in the proper functioning of the body.
Ions are the key to the creation of electric energy within the body. Simply defined, they are atoms or molecules in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge. Ions with an extra electron are known as 'anions' and possess a negative charge. Those with less electrons than protons carry a positive charge and are called 'cations'.
Ions occur naturally and are created through friction, often between the air and water. Negative ions have long been known to have beneficial effects. The elevated sense of wellbeing experienced near a mountain waterfall or by the crashing waves of the ocean is a good example and the result of thousands of negative ions impacting on human biochemistry. Inhaled through the air we breathe and the water we drink, we thrive on negatively charged oxygen ions.
Positive ions have the opposite effect. Produced by electronic equipment, mobile phones, WiFi and bluetooth devices, positive ions collect in places where the air is stale and dust settles - in windowless offices, on TV screens and in front of computer monitors. It is easy to imagine that they are harmful to our health.
Our bodies are under constant attach from chemicals known as 'free radicals'. Generated by our external environment and within the body itself, they effectively 'steal' an electron from another atom or molecule in order to become electrically 'stable' and inflict some serious damage to cells and tissues in the process.
Introducing antioxidants into the body is one solution that effectively counteracts this cell degradation. Naturally occurring chemicals found in fruits and vegetables, antioxidants readily 'give up' a spare electron, thus neutralising free radicals and preventing them from doing their damage. While the introduction of antioxidants is often via diet, this process can also be encouraged by other means - like IONIC body brushing.
/IONIC body brushing
Dry skin brushing with the Karmameju ionic body brush creates negative electric ions directly onto the skin through natural friction. The highly conductive composition of the copper alloy bristles allows these ions to be absorbed transdermally. Providing your body with an excess of negative ions means providing it with a plentiful supply of 'spare' electrons, ready to neutralise the onslaught of free radicals we combat every day and prevent the inflammation and 'disease' they cause.
Skin brushing also has massive benefits for the body’s circulatory and nervous systems. The increased delivery of oxygen to our cells and body tissues boosts the metabolism and energy levels as well as detoxifying the blood and lymph, increasing the skin's eliminative potential to optimise the body’s circulatory and nervous systems.
