Receiving a professional head massage (sometimes referred to as a scalp massage) can help to alleviate the symptoms of migraines and chronic headaches while also encouraging relaxation and stress reduction. Cranial-sacral massage treatment is a light massage method that focuses on the central nervous system of the head, spinal column, and sacrum and is aimed to alleviate stress.
A classic head massage focuses on the whole head and neck, allowing for relaxation and a release of tension.
During a head massage, a variety of massage strokes are performed. Strokes are made with flat fingers and hands, and the pressure used can range from light to hard. Using various types of strokes on the scalp, neck, and shoulders is recognised to be a stress reliever as well as a treatment for acute and chronic headaches.
Kneading is used on the neck and shoulders, where muscle tissue is present. Kneading is a type of gentle, rhythmic massage that squeezes and pulls tissue, to encourage deeper blood and lymph circulation by compressing soft tissues. The lymph circulation must be stimulated in order to eliminate waste products from the tissues and maintain healthy muscles.
We frequently use acupressure in head massages. Acupressure is a technique in which pressure is administered to trigger points in the soft tissues using the fingertip or thumb. Pressure points aid in the removal of knots, the relaxation of muscles, and the promotion of blood circulation throughout the body. Pressure points are used around the shoulder, head and face to release common areas of tension.
A professional head massage offers a plethora of health advantages, from basic relaxation to alleviating tensions and general stress levels. .
