Head Massage

Sunday, 23 August 2009

head massageHealing properties of massage have long been known to a man, but most often by «massage» we mean the effect on the body and picture a massage table, a relaxing patient and manual therapist working his magic on him or her. However, sometimes masseurs work specifically on one or another area or part of the body, not so much seeking to restore body to the healthy condition, but rather pursuing a specific goal. Head massage is a variety of such «localized» approach to manual body stimulation.

Head massage helps to achieve health-improving and relaxing effects, and also has a beneficial effect on hair. Therefore, head massage is an excellent method for curing fatigue and stress, its lifts the mood, stimulates zonal blood flow in the scalp, and as a result helps to boost hair health and improve its appearance.

What are the basic principles of head massage and what are the main features of this manipulation technique? The main task of the therapist (or masseur) is to stimulate the blood circulation in the scalp and brain. As a result, a person feels a burst of positive emotions, which, in turn, positively affect the functioning of all organs and systems of the human body. Improving blood circulation in the scalp normalizes microcirculation in the hair roots, thus strengthening the hair, making it less brittle and less prone to hair loss during washing and brushing.

Prior to massage, experts recommend to create an appropriate atmosphere necessary for full relaxation and the emotional disposition of the patient. Complete relaxation is very important for achievement of the desired therapeutic effect, because if the patient is nervous and stressed his muscles are tense which prevents normal blood circulation. In order to feel more relaxed, the patient is recommended to listen to quiet soothing music, light aromatic candles and yield to helpful and sympathetic attitude of the therapist. To this end, some therapists prefer to start the procedure with a general massage, gradually moving to head massage.

Head massage is more comfortable to administer when the patient is sitting on the chair. To this end, he is offered a soft comfortable chair with armrests. Before the beginning of the massage the patient takes deep breath. The therapist stands behind the patient and commences by kneading the shoulders and neck. Then, the therapist massages symmetrical sections that are on either side of the spinal column with his thumbs. This manipulation has a positive effect not only on the head, but on the body as a whole, as these are the areas of cerebrospinal fascicles which consist of blood vessels and nerve fibers, which innervate various organs and ensure their normal functioning. The therapist's thumbs begin at the level of the upper thoracic vertebrae, and move up to the scalp. Then, putting his left hand on the patient's forehead, he moves his right hand upwards along the back of the neck, while his thumb is positioned on one side of the spine, and the remaining four fingers are on the other. In this case the therapist is more comfortable standing by the side of the patient. Then, without changing the position of his hand, the therapist makes some circular movements. He or she then runs his fingers through the patient's hair. This causes blood to rush to the massaged area and stimulates the scalp. After this the therapist uses a series of light slapping movements with his or her palm on the back and side of the head to induce relaxation.

During the next massage stage the therapist performs vibrating movements. He puts one hand on the patient's forehead; while with his other hand makes circular vibrating movements in the occipital-parietal area. Then the therapist changes hands. The scalp surface can be massaged with these vibrating finger movements. After that the therapist resumes stroking movements, but this time they are deeper. When the head, neck and shoulders have been sufficiently massaged, the therapist proceeds to massage the face and ears. At the end of a massage session the patient will feel totally relaxed and de-stressed.

Typically, a massage session takes about than 5 - 10 minutes and can be performed at home by anyone.
