Hot Towel Scrub
Updated: Mar 20
• Reduces muscle tension
• Re-energizes in the morning and deeply relaxes at night
• Opens the pores to release stored toxins
• Softens deposits of hard fat below the skin and prepares them for discharge
• Allows excess fat, mucus, cellulite, and toxins to actively discharge to the surface rather than to accumulate around deeper vital organs
• Relieves stress through meditative action of rubbing the skin
• Calms the mind
• Promotes circulation
• Activates the lymphatic system, especially when scrubbing underarms and groin
• Easy massage and deep self-care
• Can be a sacred moment in your day, especially if done with candlelight and a drop
or two of essential oil such as lavender
• Creates a profound and loving relationship with the body, especially parts not often
• Spreads energy through the chakras
1. Turn on the hot water and fill the sink.
2. Hold the towel at both ends and place in the hot water.
3. Wring out the towel.
4. While the towel is still hot and steamy, begin to scrub the skin gently.
5. Scrub one section of the body at a time. For example, begin with the hands and fingers and work your way up the arms to the shoulders, neck and face, then down to the chest, upper back, abdomen, lower back, buttocks, legs, feet, and toes.
6. Scrub until the skin becomes slightly pink or until each part becomes warm.
7. Reheat the towel often by dipping it in the sink of hot water after scrubbing each section or as soon as the towel starts to cool.
