Body Brushing

Body Brushing

I began my beauty journey at a young age of 17 years old an apprenticeship in hairdressing. I studied for 4 years, besides the art of hairdressing and creativity, I was very passionate and interested in the study of the internal organs, and the skin being  our largest organ of the body. There was  a lot of content to read and learn and for some reason at a young age I was obessed with learning that everything that many problems you have to your outer body comes from within, first and your largest organ in your body the skin gives you the signs. 

Think back to human biology class!
What is one of the most important elimination organs in the body, playing the role in daily DETOXIFICATION?
What is the largest organ i the body?
What organ receives a third of all the blood that is circulated in the body?
When the blood is the last to receive nutrients in the body, yet is the first to show signs of imbalance or deficiency?

Answer; The Skin!

Signs in the skin you need to detox and Body Brush 

  • acne
  • eczema
  • hives
  • vitiligo
  • psoriasis
  • rosacea
  • athletes foot
  • warts
  • dermatitis 
  • shingles
  • cold sores 
  • skin pigmentation 
  • tinea 
  • rashes and 
Just to name a few. The largest organ in the body, the skin I believe after years of research and personal experience is the window into a person's general well-being, because it cn carry the clues about the health of other organs. Understanding how powerful the human body is and how deeply effected it can be from toxins, stress and bad diet or lifestyle. It truly helps you to see the changes in the skin, ranging from dryness, discolouration to new growth, may be early signs of 'underlying health problems'

Back in my late teenage years I got myself a body brush. It became part of my daily routine and especially around the years I was competing in  body building shows, running the salons and training hard. I needed to do all I could to look after my internal body while putting huge amounts of physical demand and stress on my body and while owning and managing the  two hair and beauty salons. 25 years later and at the age of 46 my skin hasn't changed, it looks and feels young and healthy. I know when I get a blemish or ulcer I need to take step back breathe deeply and restore, with my greens. 

By removing dead skin cells, encouraging blood flow and reducing chemical exposure through synthetic products is key to overall health.
I encourage you to lightly dry brush your skin in a circular motion from your toes to your heart before showering.
Try and avoid chemical exposure to your skin through lotions and makeup as much as possible throughout your cleanse.

Health Benefits to Body Brushing 

  1. Increased circulation- possibly reduce cellulite 
  2. Helps shed dead skin cells and encourage cell renewal
  3. Assist in improving vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
  4. Improve immune health - rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin 
  5. Helps with muscle tone and gives you a more even distribution of fat deposits 
  6. Dry Skin Brushing helps your skin absorb nutrients by eliminating the clogged pores. 
  7. Help to Reduce inflammation
  8. Exfoliates & Detox skin
  9. Improve organ function
  10. Higher energy levels 
In my experience, dry brushing first thing in the morning can actually set up the perfect day. I like to do this at night also. 
By doing something beautiful for yourself first thing in the morning can help you develop a beautiful follow-on effect, starting with a healthy recipe from me Detox Programs, why ruin all the hard work you just did.

Are you living your life feeling stressed? Do you want a coach? A MENTOR?

Nicky Arthur 10 Week Transformation is not just for Mama's it's IDEAL for Corporates and busy women.

It is the complete BODY WORK PROGRAM 

Are you living your life feeling stressed?
I know what that can feel like! I have been there before.
THE FACT: If you are stressed you SIMPLY will NOT lose weight easy, as stress hormones program the body to store fat, especially around the stomach area, and for women this is a stubborn hurdle.
According to statistics, chronic stress is the root cause of 90% illness, disease and weight gain.
Stress makes us stress eat, turning to sweets, artificial sugar or alcohol to self soothe, burns us out, robs our lifeforce, and depletes our energy so by the end of the day we have no Self motivation left.
Do you eat when stressed? Or over eat? Listen up!
The good news is through creating a healthy lifestyle with stress busting techniques that I have created over the past 8 years on my online programmes, health retreats and by educating you by eating a diet that is plant based and healing, you can undo decades of stress from the body and mind, just like I have done dropped away the stress, inches of belly fat quickly and easily, and restore your peace of mind and body confidence. Step by step.
My program Nicky Arthur 10 Week Transformation is not just for Mama's it's IDEAL for you if:
It is the complete BODY WORK including the Power of Raw.
Have tried all sorts of diets and fitness programs and still not really living in the body your dream, or maybe have fluctuated body weight time and time again.
You have 5 kg -30 kg to lose and you want it gone fast! Sonia shed 33 kg & Ann shed 21kg our very first success stories did this.
Do you want to learn how to fine tune your body
Do you always feel bloated even when you eat healthy
Is your body starting to show signs of increased aging, hormonal related weight gain, and lowered immune system.

Or Have you have gone through some intense kind of trauma or life circumstance and haven't been the same since (divorce, job loss, moving, health crisis)
Have you tried all sorts of diets, training, personal trainers and still not getting the change you want?
Do you want to lose inches around your middle?

Sometimes what you think is the problem, isn’t actually the issue. I found this out over the last 10 weeks as I’ve undertaken one on one coaching with Nicky. I thought my problem was the weight I was carrying; in fact this isn’t the case.

By talking with Nicky week by week, we started to unravel of whole lot of thoughts and ideas I had about myself which were untrue and each time, I was able to start growing in a new direction. There were ups and downs, that’s part of the journey.

Life isn’t about what the scales tell you it’s just a number, life is about how you want to live your life and allowing yourself to change and grow. It’s about letting go of old ideas, thoughts and negative patterns that no longer serve you. By doing this you are able to move towards the life you really want. I have done this through the coaching and each day I find myself growing and being more open to the amazing life I already have and am further enhancing.

I would highly recommend one on one coaching, it opens up a huge opportunity to explore and as I say sometimes what you think it the problem actually isn’t. I look forward to my journey as it unfolds and am going to continue with the personal coaching, it’s be life changing.

Kick start Do-it Yourself-YOGA at home. 

6 Beautiful Staples to make you want to practice at home. 

While I was pregnant with my first baby I designated a room

Solely to my Yoga & Mediation 

This room became my beautiful serene space to relax, in wind and stretch. 

Some of the Do-it Yourself Yoga practice  were yin restorative based and other days they were invigorating and more workout based depending on what my body needed. 

I believe listening to your body is one of the best things you can do for yourself. 

There will be days where you need to pump

Yo your muscles for body circulation and energy, and there will be days where you will highly benefit from just lying on your mat. 

But there are staples you will need to make your home practice a beautiful and eco friendly experience to create harmony and balance in your everyday life and home practice. 

5 ESSENTIALS to create your space for a beautiful practice and motivate you to get on your mat daily. 

  1. Designate a space for your mat with plenty of room, you don’t need a huge space. Aprox 2 Metres by 2 metres, 

  1. Set up a sound system for relaxing music. Try Deval Primal, Krishna Das, Donna Delroy and my favourite Snatam Kaur 

  1. Essential oils and candles ~ try Frankincense, Lavender, Ylang Ylang. Use a diffuser or oil burner. Specific oils can be helpful in aiding better digestion.

  1. Water bottle or a calming tea for yin practice, try camomile or black chai tea, or green matcha  for more invigorating practice. 

  1. Sage smudging stick. I burn my Sage stick every morning while setting my daily Intentions. This will help burn negativity and welcome positive energy and new golden opportunities. It’s a beautiful ritual and you will find changes starting to happen more effortlessly. Make sure you remember your gratitude 

  1. Nature - pair these with a plant, soft lighting, candles and a neutral color scheme and you're on your way to a home yoga studio you actually want to spend time in practising. 

I hope you found this hopeful. It’s how I started making my yoga part of my daily life 19 years ago. I couldn’t live without my yoga. It’s the only exercise in the world that is energy giving, spine relief, helps loosen up tight hamstrings, and invigorates tired achy legs and muscles. 

Yoga  healed my body from Arthritis, anxiety and terrible pain in my Glutes and sciatic, and ITB ( iliotibial band) it was my daily practice that helped create consistency to help released the pain and tightness I didn’t realise I was living with that was holding my back of vitality and increase happiness. 

The iliotibial band is a thick band of fascia (tissue) that begins at the iliac crest in the pelvis, runs down the lateral or outside part of the thigh, and crosses the knee to attach into the top part of the tibia or shinbone. It forms from the tensor fascia lata and two of the gluteal muscles (gluteus medius and gluteus minimus) in the buttock and then stretches across the knee. The iliotibial (IT) band helps stabilize the outside part of the knee through its range of motion

Remember you don’t need to be a Yoga Guru to create a home practice. 

Start with my beginner level Yoga Sequence for at home.

Seasonal Eating

My Dad still harvest his  his amazing abundant vegetable garden today in his late 70’s despite his physical obstacles. It’s something he doesn’t give up on, and finds a way to continue to sow and reap. 

Earlier this year my Dad finally had his hip replacement. All through last spring he had to plant, fig and prepare the garden for summer, by lying down on his stomach to get the job done. 

I truly believe his connection to the earth and nature is what is helping his health be the best it can be. 

I beer took much notice of the Garden as a child as kids we were more focused on kicking the ball around the back yard, playing cricket,  playing chase around the garden. as I have golf older and especially over the time of publishing my threee health and nutrition books I have picked my Dad’s brain about gardening. 
Yep old fashion gardening works. 

My dad’s garden is ORGANIC He doesn’t use sprays, he has a system with composting and recycling. 

I didn’t alwaysike winter but as I have learnt is every SEASON has it’s purpose. 

Thanks Dad, for raising us up around the most natural environment possible. 

­čî┐Imagine a vegetable garden in the dead of winter. Then imagine the same garden on a sunny, 
summer day. How different the garden is during these two seasons of the year! Yet, today it is so easy 
for us to forget about the seasons when we eat. 
Originally, people had no choice but to eat foods only when they were in season. 
But now, modern food propagation methods and a fast and economical worldwide distribution of food make the same 
foods available all year round. You can buy many types of food from a supermarket irrespective of 
seasonal availability, and grocery store shelves look much the same in December as they do in July. 

However, life always comes full circle and now, once again, we are moving back to the old fashion approach of following the seasons. Seasonal foods are a way of reconnecting with the cycle that nature intended for us. Raw foods, the healthiest wholesome foods provided by nature, are seasonal. 
And when food is in season, it has more flavour and is more economical to buy. 


The nutritional level of fresh, seasonal food is very high. The longer that it is stored the more the 
nutritional value depletes. So, it’s a good idea to eat freshly picked fruit, or freshly harvested produce. 
Try supporting your local farmers’ market or your local fresh fruit and vegetable store, because 
generally they will stock what is in season.

Embracing Your Beauty from within can be a journey.

Embrace your beauty from within can be a journey but it can be done. 

As I am now in my 46th year I am trying to embrace  natural beauty from within and inspire other women to do the same by learning all about your SKIN ~ your largest organ is a GUIDE to let you know what your internal health is. 

I am from the fashion industry and don't get me wrong, I love good hair, make up and fashion. I think its fun, creative and can make you feel feminine and womanly. My objective here is inner health and to inspire you to think about your skin as your largest organ learning how it can be your guide to how healthy you are from within. I know when my skin isn't glowing or breaking out I need to make some changes. 

Here is my experiment embracing my natural beauty. 

1. Allowing my natural hair colour to come in, no hair colour. My former background is owning Hair and Beauty Salons so I have been use to colouring my own hair for many years now. This is something I have always wanted to do, its not to say I won't ever colour my hair again... NO!

2. Allowing my eyebrows to grow in naturally so I can see their natural shape. Years ago this was fashion, these days eyebrows look so false and painted on, Men don’t actually like it!

3. Increasing water for hydration, I can see and feel the difference.

4. Focused on sleep and meditation for restoring my body and digestive system. 

5. Natural nails and toes, letting my nails breathe, loving this one.

6. Meditation can help with less frowning and anger shown on our beautiful face.  I am working with Men and women everyday and it is something I remind my clients to relax their facial muscles and try to smile within. Letting go of all those annoyances that can over time show lines and frowns on our face. Finding JOY within helps us stay young and vibrant! 

Embracing inner beauty as a mum and Fitness Coach I feel this is so important as today’s rapidly changing world is becoming more and more materialistic and fake. 

I have two beautiful girls and I want to be the best role model I can be for living a natural, balanced and healthy lifestyle. Don't get me wrong, I love a filter and being creative on social media, snap chat and Instagram but if I can also balance that out by being brave enough to show my natural beauty I hope one day my own girls will learn from it and continue to embrace theirs. 

Embracing natural beauty is empowering, what every the colour of your skin, the size of you, tall or short, dark hair or light.   

It is  healthy as you aren’t relying on chemicals, make up or materials to MAKE you feel beautiful. I believe Real BEAUTY begins from within. As a young kid we have glowing young skin, when we age we have to step up to our health so you can continue to radiate your natural beauty. 

As a Fitness Coach you have to exercise to purge toxins, eat healthy, drink plenty of clean water and rest and restore. 
I use rose hip oil, coconut oil, Essential oils, sleep, Meditation and healthy nutrition to help my skin flow. 

Follow me for more inspiration how to be healthy and glow from within. 

PS by the way I have a new online Fitness Program releasing soon. If you are a member of the gym and sick of not getting the results or support you are after for Body Transformation I have just the right tools for success and group support with daily updates to help you go through your new routine.

Are your Chakra's working properly

Change your energy’s change your life. 

You know when things aren't working in your life. But have you been open enough to work on your Bodies Energy System? Chakra Balancing has been around for thousands of years, it is simple and works. I am going to share with you the one single thing that can help you figure out how to transform that area in a flash. 

Like everything in life, if you want something to grow, flourish and radiate to become the best and reach full potential you have to look after it and take care of it, just like your body, your temple.

Open your Bodies Chakra System and make sure it is working properly. 

You don’t need to drag up the past, know what baggage you are carrying around or where it came from to understand what is wrong with a certain area of your life that may not be working for you. 

All you need to know is if an area of your life is not working, one or more of your chakras are is possibly blocked or not working properly. 

Your job is not to know why and be worried, it is to make sure it is working properly. 

Here is the single on thing that helps you to change that area of your life. 

Are you feeling stuck and stagnant in this area of your life?
Do you want that something be it Abundance, Love, Success or Inner Health  to grow, flourish and radiate? How would it feel  to become the best and reach full potential you have to look after it and take care of it, just like your body, your temple. 

The number one way to start is "Meditation" and feeling connected with your energy field. 

Change your energy’s change your life. 

Meditating isn't always easy for beginners. I remember it well when I first started, I was so distracted in my mind and fidgety in my body. My Yoga Guru always said a fidgety body and fidgety mind. What he meant by that was the mind flitting from thought to though and not creating the present moment and right vibration in my mind and body to help me reap the results I was after. Now I have trained my mind to meditate I can go into deep states of deep meditation quickly to re adjust my mindset and chakra bodies energy system when stuff comes up or when I feel I am not reaping the results in areas of my life. I will teach you that through your practice, patience is just as important when you first start sowing the new seeds of abundance, love and success. It is a journey and can take time for you to align your energy and define your goals. 

You can channel or manifest anything really into your life when you learn this technique. I am sure you have heard of the book 'The Secret"  or read it, millions of people have read this book but are they all living the dream? 
It can take some time to integrate this technique into your body and life. I can tell you I have been on this path a long time and I am still learning and integrating it into my daily life. I know when my chakra's are open and I am receiving all the love abundance, good health and success and when I am not. 
You can change it in a flash. But first we must get quiet, sit in solitude and learn to relax your mind and body. 

My Special and Unique Meditation Practice filmed around Ubud Rainforest will help you manifest abundance and still your mind. 

Embrace it now for a downloadable video to play on your phone, in the park at home, meditate to, fall asleep to. Click in the link below to get your own Video link now. 

You can access the meditation here. Click on the link and receive the 30 min meditation now to play on your phone or laptop.

Are you a busy person and only an  audio only person then I have just the thing for you. 

You can download my 35 min for $5.95 or the  15min quick-fix meditation $2.95  for success, love and abundance here now. 

I take pride in these videos and audios and have used them for my own meditation practices for over the past 6 years. 

Now it's your turn. 

Vibrate the health energy, abundance, self love and success from within. 

The law of attraction is all about like attraction like, and when you begin to vibrating a higher level you will attract a higher level energy. In turn this will help you create increased abundance, love and success. It is particular good if you are single and wanting to attract the right energy of man or woman into your life so you can both be aligned. I believe self love here is number one important factor.

Learn to relax, still your active mind and meditate along to my voice helping to guide you down into that meditative state. 

This can also be highly beneficial for stress management.
