Head Massage Alleviate Hurts Faster
You're feeling it, the dread of returning to the office after a nice long weekend. Back to the stress of the workplace, the boss, the co-workers, enough to give you a headache. Surely there's some sort of relief from all of this (short of a two-week vacation to Bermuda!) How about a head massage? Head Massage is a term used to describe alternative medicine remedy therapy. A head massage is believed to clear blocks in energy channels that cause a build-up of negative energy that cause a variety of ailments. When energy doesn't flow properly, it can cause baldness, stress, pains, and aches.
Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue. This is done to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being on many parts of the body. Why can't we do head massage?. If you are looking to modern medicine to cure your issues, maybe you are looking in the wrong place. The art of massage dates way back, back to over 3000 years. It has been documented by the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians. They all applied forms of massage for many ailments. Hippocrates even wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.
The art of massage became popular in the US in the 1800's. It had a surge of popularity until the 1930's and 40's. When modern medicine came to the forefront, the art of massage therapy became discounted as lesser than . Suddenly, it became popular again in the 1960's and 1970's when nurses began to use it to relieve pain in patients. It again gained credibility when, in the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta it was used as core medical service. Champissage, or head massage was also introduced to the United States around 1970. Are you convinced? Do you want what's good enough for an Olympian?
So many nerve endings and so much of our nervous system is in our heads. Generally a massage can help different areas of the body. Well, it's the same with the head. If you have a headache, try head massage. This type of massage (also known as Indian head massage) is offered at most salons and spas, or can even be done at home. Usually you will be luxuriously massaged for about 30 minutes, but may be longer or shorter. Oil may or may not be used. This is up to you. If you have oil on your head, you may want to cover up your clothing with a protective apron, which your specialist will provide. Unlike other massages, there is no need to be nude. You will be in a chair with a low back.
Can it benefit me? Realize, this is something that will relax you. When you are relaxed in your mind, your body naturally relaxes and you will feel uplifted. There are many other benefits. My dad went to a masseuse to help with his tinnitus. Blood and lymph circulation improve also. When your positive energy is flowing, you'll sleep and concentrate better. Go to your local spa, try one! See, you will feel better!
