A scalp massage is not only extremely relaxing but it can also stimulate the nerves and blood vessels beneath the skin while calming muscle tension around the head. Tension is felt within the head and neck, so scalp massages can be very effective as a stress reducer.
The therapist will use their fingers to rub the base of the scalp beneath the hair, the sides of the head, the forehaed, chin, hairline, neck, shoulders and spine. Some use warm oil to massage into the scap. It is one of the most relaxing massage treatments available.
