Scalp Massages


Scalp Massages

  • Reduces Stress Levels: General tension and stress can inhibit blood flow to your head causing headaches, eye-strain, poor concentration, hair loss, depression and other symptoms. A soothing head and scalp massage provides instant relief.
  • Relieves headaches
  • Increases blood flow: This is especially helpful with scalp massage, because it doesn’t just benefit the skin and scalp itself, but also the hair follicles and hair. This increased blood flow can stimulate the follicles in such a way that hair will grow faster, which is a great benefit for those who wish to increase the length of their locks. Scalp massage can also strengthen hair follicles which, in turn, strengthen the entire hair shaft. Often this type of massage is accompanied by special oils that are applied to the scalp and hair to provide increased nourishment and work with the hair’s natural oils to repair dryness and breakage. This is great for massage or hair clients who suffer from chronic flaking and itching caused by a dry scalp. The special scalp oils may also be scented with either a relaxing mix of aromatic herbs or something more stimulating for those looking for an energy boost.
  • Relaxation: Do a scalp massage with hair oil before going off to sleep. This will help relax the mind and achieve sound sleep.
