How To Keep Your Head In The GamePosted on
It’s no secret that massage in general is an important part of a preventive health regimen. By increasing circulation and decreasing muscle tension with massage, your body will perform better and your mind will stay sharp. But there’s one type of massage in particular that doesn’t often get the recognition it deserves. Scalp massages are often relegated to that few minutes at the hair salon when you’re getting your hair washed, but they could be oh-so-much more.
As with most forms of massage therapy, scalp massages offer benefits on any number of levels. Just like their cousins’ scalp massages encourage the release of serotonin, the feel-good chemical that your body naturally produces. It’s involved not only in regulating your mood but also in promoting healthy sleep patterns and pro-social behavior, too.
Scalp massages also promote circulation in the scalp as well as in the neck and shoulder regions. This increases the supply of oxygen to skin and muscle cells, helps with lymphatic drainage as well as with the removal of waste products from those cells. This will help your skin stay soft and supple and improve your overall health as well.
The increased supply of oxygen has an added benefit during a scalp massage – it promotes healthy hair growth. You can’t have great hair if your scalp isn’t healthy. The increased flow of blood to your scalp’s skin cells means that your hair follicles are also benefitting from it. And that in turn promotes healthy hair. Plus, scalp massages can help people who suffer from conditions such as dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis by exfoliating the unhealthy skin cells and letting fresh, new ones come to the surface.
Here at DuBunné Spa Club and Massage Centre, we offer a Moroccan Oil Scalp Massage that combines the benefits of a scalp massage with the added effects of aromatherapy. Using an oil blend that includes ginger, lavender, and geranium essential oils, the treatment not only relieves stress but helps keep both your hair and your scalp healthy, too.
