The Soothing Secrets Of A Head Massage


									The Soothing Secrets Of A Head Massage
How many times do you find at the end of the day that your head feels like it has been through a wringer? From periods of intense concentration, working under pressure or just in a very busy environment, these are all factors that make your head cry out for relaxation therapy. A head massage is the obvious answer yet it also contains some very attractive hidden benefits. A head massage will not only ease those pressure points and give you a feeling of overall calm and relaxation, it also assists in the relief of headaches and migraines. This is achieved by easing the tension that is held in the muscles of the head, shoulders and neck. When this is then eased, there is a very welcome reduction of the pressure exerted on the nerves and blood vessels that supply them. A head massage not only assists in the relaxation of the body's muscles, it is also effective in the reduction in anxiety and mental stress that has been allowed to build up, a major reason for the cause or exacerbation of headaches. Undertaking regular massage of the scalp will help in the stimulation of blood flow, which in turn assists in the nourishment of hair follicles. The result of this is the greater chance for the prevention of hair loss, a natural problem for men from as early an age as in their thirties but also for older women. To achieve any form of desired result it is a necessary requirement to ensure that you massage the scalp on a daily basis using your fingertips to stimulate and promote blood circulation to your scalp that, in turn, activates the hair cells. A simple technique involves moving your fingertips in a circular motion commencing with the area of the forehead hairline and proceeding along the blood arteries to the side. Continue this movement of the fingertips all the way to the back of your head and then work your way up to the tip, with each hand taking a route past the top of the ears reaching the top of the scalp having drawn an imaginary oval shape.

It is important to remember that this should be undertaken twice per day for approximately ten minutes per day. If you consider that this may not be possible, why not use the time in the shower when you are washing your hair to take longer than normal to massage the shampoo into the scalp? By just practicing the simple techniques used for scalp stimulation these great benefits can be readily achieved. The therapy of Indian head massage is ideal for someone who may wish to enjoy and benefit from them themselves or to have the skills to help others by easily learning how to so simple Indian head massage techniques. Whilst this therapy may have an exotic name, it is easy to learn the basic skills quickly when excellent instructional Indian head massage technique dvds are readily available.
