Massage is one of the most common ways to reduce stress. It’s a simple complementary medicine technique that involves kneading soft tissues in the body, which can create a calming effect and removing tension.
One popular type of massage therapy is scalp massage. Scalp massages include massage of the face, neck, back and shoulders. Massaging the scalp can help stimulate the nerves and blood vessels beneath the skin while calming muscle tension around the head.
Your scalp is healthiest when it’s clean. But it may also need a little stimulation to keep any potential problems away. Scalp massage can increase the production of certain chemicals in the body, including endorphins and serotonin which can help put you in a better mood, reducing your stress and creating an environment for relaxation.
