The wonderful sensation of pure wellbeing: a Scalp and Head massage
When getting your hair done at your hair salon, a scalp massage is probably one of the best moments during your visit. All of your worries seem to fade away once your hairdresser rubs your scalp with their fingertips in gentle, circular movements.
In fact, we get often so comfortable that we almost fall asleep at the shampoo bowl and we slightly regret that it lasted only a couple of minutes.
Scalp massage is said to offer a variety of benefits, which may include stress relief, reduction in headaches and boost in blood flow stimulation.
Many people sleep better when they have regular scalp massage, with improvement in both falling asleep and staying asleep.
Conversely, scalp massage can also help those with fatigue feel more energized.
As with any good massage, a professional scalp massage can turn a feel-good rub into something with greater benefits. Massage therapists will use fingertips and palms on the forehead and temples as well as on the base of the skull near the headline.
Acupressure techniques can be used, which involves applying finger pressure on specific points on the head. Acupressure is based on the idea that lines of energy run throughout the body and that blockages along these lines cause discomfort, fatigue, and even illness.
Applying pressure on key points on the scalp, head, face and neck releases blocked energy and relieves discomfort.
