Head massage: what is it for and for what purpose is it performed?

Like any other massage, this procedure is designed to:

  1. To activate local blood circulation. Under the influence of massage, the capillaries and blood vessels in the skin expand sharply, an active supply of oxygen and nutrients to nearby tissues begins.
  2. Stimulate lymphatic drainage. Swelling goes away, the elimination of harmful substances from the body is accelerated.
  3. Use biologically active points (most of them are on the palms, feet and on the head). This has an indirect effect on the entire body, contributing to the healing and stimulation of the immune system.
  4. Relax spasmodic muscles. This, in turn, also contributes to the activation of blood circulation, since it releases the pinched capillaries.
  5. Normalize the work of the sebaceous glands. This helps to improve blood flow.
