Scalp, Neck and Shoulder Massage
A revitalizing and aromatic massage encompassing the scalp, neck and shoulder area to reduce stress related tension quickly. Cool fingertips run along your neck, gently rubbing the tension away from your spine. They make their way up the back of your head. You close your eyes to rest. You’re not dreaming — you’re enjoying a scalp massage.
Massage is one of the most common ways to reduce stress. It’s a simple complementary medicine technique that involves kneading soft tissues in the body, which can create a calming effect and removing tension.
One popular type of massage therapy is scalp massage. Massaging the scalp can help stimulate the nerves and blood vessels beneath the skin while calming muscle tension around the head. Although many different cultures have used massage as a form of therapy for thousands of years, it’s possible to trace the history of the head and scalp massage to India. The people of India have incorporated head massage into therapeutic practice for about 5,000 years as part of ayurveda, a holistic medicine. Many Indian women used it as part of a weekly ritual, massaging the scalps of family members to prevent stress and even illness.
Also a great add-on experience to any full body massage scalp massage includes massage of the face, neck, back and shoulders. Massage technicians and therapists use their fingers to rub the base of the scalp beneath the hair, the sides of the head, the forehead, chin, hairline, neck, shoulders and back.
Benefits of Scalp neck and shoulder Massage
Your scalp is healthiest when it’s clean. But it may also need a little stimulation to keep any potential problems away. Some studies have shown that massage can increase the production of certain chemicals in the body, including endorphins and serotonin. These chemicals can help put you in a better mood, reducing your stress and creating an environment for relaxation.
Scalp massage also can relieve pain by improving circulation and removing muscle tension. This can be especially helpful if you have a migraine or headache. Migraines are sometimes caused by a decrease in serotonin levels; scalp massage may be able to increase serotonin levels and relieve pain. Headaches, on the other hand, may be caused by muscle tension, which a scalp neck and shoulder massage can also alleviate.
If you sit at a desk all day, you’re probably familiar with a feeling of stiffness in your neck. It can even happen when you’re watching a long movie in a theater or if you sleep in an awkward position. Since a scalp massage often includes massage of the neck, back and shoulders, it can also help relieve that crick in your neck.
