Skin Breathing and Scrubs

Our skin is our largest organ and can be considered our third lung. Our skin breathes. It is alive and it has a rhythm, an inhalation and an exhalation. It absorbs (inhales) oxygen, nutrients, senses light, and regulates heat and cold. It releases (exhales) carbon dioxide, sheds dead skin cells and completely regenerates itself every 28 days. It protects our bones, organs and allows us to feel the power of sensation!

In each square INCH of skin there are:

  • 65 hairs
  • 95-100 sebaceous glands
  • 78 yards of nerve fibers
  • 19 yards of blood vessels
  • 650 sweat glands
  • 9,500,000 cells
  • 1,300 nerve endings
  • 19,500 additional cells at the end of the nerve fibers
  • 78 sensory apparatuses for heat
  • 13 sensory apparatuses for cold
  • 160-165 pressure apparatuses for the perception of tactile stimuli

All scrubs at Healing Arts are hand-made by Massage Therapist and Esthetician Jennifer Skidmore. You may have seen her booth this fall at the Plymouth Farmer’s Market!

What we apply to our skin matters -- what starts on your skin winds up in your blood – this is why hormone and vitamin patches work.

At Healing Arts, we use food-based natural & organic products for our massages and facials. Most skin care lines, lotions and oils contain many synthetic chemicals, including lead! Read the ingredients (if you can understand them) . . . . If you can’t eat it, don’t apply it!

The skin is like an outer lung and the pores are seen as the “doors of Qi” (energy) according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. To maintain the body’s defensive energy (“Wei Qi”) and protect from pathogenic forces we must care for our first line of defense: our skin. Scrubs boost our immune system and keep clear the doorways of qi. Scrub this Fall season to cleanse, smooth, moisturize the skin and restore its natural balance.
