Garshana | Ayurvedic Dry-Brushing Massage

Garshana, also called dry-brushing or dry-rubbing, is a dry, full-body massage in which one uses special raw silk gloves or dry brushes to apply the treatment. The silk gloves or brushes are used to exfoliate, firm, and smooth the skin.

Garshana is often carried out as a self-care treatment, making part of the Ayurvedic Dinacharya daily routine. A Garshana treatment is typically followed by a soothing Abhyanga oil massage.

The Garshana massage is known to increase blood circulation and activate lymphatic flow. It’s why it’s sometimes also called an Ayurvedic Lymphatic Drainage Massage.

In general, Garshana is thought to be beneficial for skin conditions, such as cellulite, for detoxification, and overall feelings of well-being and vitality.
