If you experience regular headaches or even migraines then a scalp massage could relieve some of the tension on your head. If you’re feeling particularly stressed then it’s worth booking yourself in for a head massage to relieve some pressure before you start experiencing migraine symptoms.
Sometimes, you just need to relax. A head massage is the perfect way to de-stress and unwind. When people think of a massage, they often opt for a body massage and forget that a head massage is also a big part of massage therapy. As well as feeling better, a head massage could improve the look of your skin. When your face is relaxed, your skin isn’t as stiff so your wrinkles will look less visible.
A Better Night’s Sleep
It’s no secret that the calmer and more relaxed you feel, the easier it is for you to fall asleep. If you’re going to sleep tense and perhaps with a headache, then the quality of your sleep isn’t going to be good. Taking the time to indulge in a head massage will make sure that you’re in the right frame of mind to switch off for a full, uninterrupted night’s sleep.
Some studies have found that a head massage can help to increase the circulation of blood going to the head and face. Improving the circulation around your hair roots could help your hair grow healthier and become stronger. In short, the massage increases oxygen flow to the scalp which stimulates hair growth.
There are some oils that massage therapists use that will also help if you have dandruff on your scalp as your skin will be much more hydrated.
