Only those who have ever had a head mas­sage by a pro­fes­sion­al mas­ter know how pleas­ant it is, and also very use­ful. This pro­ce­dure has a direct ther­a­peu­tic effect, as well as a lot of addi­tion­al, for exam­ple, cos­met­ic. Of course, not every­one has the oppor­tu­ni­ty to vis­it a pro­fes­sion­al mas­sage ther­a­pist, but there is a head mas­sage tech­nique that you can mas­ter on your own and per­form if you wish.

Health benefits of massage

Mas­sage has been used since ancient times as part of the com­plex treat­ment of a vari­ety of dis­eases. More­over, each type has its own char­ac­ter­is­tics and ben­e­fi­cial effects. So, tra­di­tion­al Chi­nese mas­sage can elim­i­nate pain and numb­ness in the neck, reduce pal­pi­ta­tions and tight­ness in the chest. This was found out by Chi­nese experts who pub­lished the result of their study in World Jour­nal of Acupunc­ture — Mox­i­bus­tion. BUT here Swedish mas­sage improves the qual­i­ty of sleep in peo­ple suf­fer­ing from chron­ic neck pain. These con­clu­sions were reached by sci­en­tists who pub­lished the result of their study in the jour­nal Com­ple­men­tary Ther­a­pies in CLINICAL PRACTICE.

With the help of var­i­ous head mas­sage tech­niques, you can improve blood cir­cu­la­tion and lymph flow, elim­i­nate swelling, reduce migraine symp­toms, nor­mal­ize blood pres­sure and get rid of spasms. A head mas­sage ses­sion is a real plea­sure, relax­ation for a per­son sub­ject to stress and psy­cho-emo­tion­al stress. At the same time, it is also a pro­ce­dure with a pleas­ant “side” cos­met­ic effect in the form of stim­u­la­tion and strength­en­ing of hair fol­li­cles, improv­ing their nutri­tion, which favor­ably affects the growth and gen­er­al con­di­tion of the veg­e­ta­tion.

How to give your­self a mas­sage before going to bed or dur­ing the day, when there is a need to relieve fatigue and pain? Here self-mas­sagewhich you can learn on your own:

  • Per­form stroking with the palm of your hand, mov­ing from the right ear to the left. Repeat this move­ment in the oppo­site direc­tion with the oth­er hand.
  • With the pads of the thumbs, start work­ing out the mid­dle of the fore­head. Mak­ing knead­ing move­ments, move to the tem­ples and return back.
  • Rub the fore­head along the hair­line with zigzag move­ments, then make the same move­ments from the bridge of the nose up.
  • Men­tal­ly divide the head into four parts and grind each sep­a­rate­ly with straight, spi­ral and zigzag move­ments.
  • It is good to work out the top of the head. Here it is impor­tant to move in a clock­wise spi­ral.
  • Go down to the tem­ples and up again to the crown. From it go down to the back of the head and climb back.
  • Press with fin­ger­tips behind the ears, on the occip­i­tal pro­tu­ber­ance and super­cil­iary arch­es.
  • Run your fin­gers through your hair, lift­ing it up and pulling light­ly.
  • End the ses­sion with strokes.

Pro­fes­sion­als use mas­sage cream or oil in their work, but if the skin and hair are oily, it is bet­ter to refuse to use them. You can not do mas­sage for any der­ma­to­log­i­cal dis­eases, dur­ing an acute infec­tion, accom­pa­nied by an increase in body tem­per­a­ture.
