Self-massage techniques to de-stress in Antibes

It only takes 15 minutes to experience the power of your hands.

Self-massage of the scalp:
Place both hands on your scalp and mainly use your fingers.

Close your eyes and start at the base of the neck, slowly moving upward in small circular motions with all 10 fingers at the same time.

Try not to massage the hair, but press firmly on the skin so that it moves with the movement.

Cover the entire skull and behind the ears. Using your thumbs, apply firm rotational pressure to the base of the skull where there is a small hollow.

Massage for about 2 to 3 minutes.
