One of the primary goals of massage is to loosen up and refresh the body and muscles. Major aim of face massage, head massage and neck massage is to smooth the wrinkles, but they are also applied as refreshing massage. It is suitable for the treatment of facial oedema, recurrent infections, headache, allergies and skin conditions. The lymph glands of the head and neck zone are smoothened and lymph circulation is stimulated.
Head massage also stimulates hair growth.
By massaging the head and neck headache can be easily eased, reaction time can be significantly reduced and concentration can be improved. Due to stress, incorrect posture, lack of exercise the neck muscles and shoulders become stiff and cramped. In this cramped condition less oxygen rich blood accesses the brain, namely the brain’s blood supply deteriorates. Stimulation of the scalp boosts blood circulation and increases the oxygen and nutrition supply of the area and thus it has a beneficial effect on the brain.
