I was instantly hooked on dry skin brushing since I first tried it a few years ago and saw a drastic reduction in my cellulite within a matter of weeks. The experience is what made me believe cellulite might be treatable after all –it’s the reason I launched The Cellulite Investigation in the first place.
After a few years, however, my dry brushing routine needed an overhaul. It didn’t seem to have a noticeable effect anymore so I was less consistent with it –a self-perpetuating cycle. That’s why I decided to revamp my skin brushing technique as part of my SAS efforts.
So far, I’ve only found one book dedicated to the subject of dry brushing. Dr. Berkowsky’s Vital Chi Skin-Brushing System: The Quick Start Program is our Cellulite Book-of-the-Month for July. But instead of spreading out our discussion of the book over the next month, we’re going to concentrate on the subject of dry brushing all week with a multi-part series based on Dr. Berkowsky’s method.
I’m not going to lie. This little book, first published in 1993, has not aged well. The pictures now seem hokey (warning: gratuitous crotch shot on page 32), the forewords are reminiscent of college recommendation letters, and the book itself is more of a spiral-bound pamphlet than a book I would pay ten bucks for on Amazon. Nevertheless, I learned a lot from reading Dr. Berkowsky’s “Vital Chi” Quick Start Program. It definitely helped me accomplish my goal of reinvigorating my dry brushing routine.
I’m still figuring out how to set up our forum, but feel free to come over and say hi while I’m working on it. It’s always nice to hear from my fellow cellulite investigators!
