Did you know there are multiple benefits to regular scalp massage? Here, I’ve listed 5 major assets your clients will gain from this touch therapy.
1. Bring in the blood, only to the surface!
We know oxygen and nutrients are vital to health of all cells in the body. Stimulating the blood flow via scalp massage is the root cause (excuse the pun) of the subsequent benefits it offers.
2. The root of the matter.
The average scalp with its 120,000 hair follicles (from where the hair grows) form natural indentations in the skin. The base of the follicle deep in the reticular dermis offers a rich blood supply to each growing hair.
3. Luscious locks.
Just like our nails, the hair shaft itself as it goes through the keratinization process is no longer biologically active. However, the condition of the hair is influenced by the nourishment it receives while growing. Scalp massage has a conditioning effect when the hair is in anagen, the active growth cycle.
4. Lubricate the skin.
Attached to each hair follicle we have sebaceous glands secreting sebum. When massaged, this natural oil assists in lubricating the skin of the scalp as well as the hair.
5. A good night’s sleep.
As massage can reduce stress hormone secretion and activity of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and activate the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), improved sleep quality may also be a side effect of this service.
