Want to melt a little, get rid of some tension, help yourself fall asleep, get rid of that head? Try a scalp massage… From yourself! It only takes 1-2 minutes to do a quick one. And you can do it at your desk at work, sitting at a stoplight, or watching TV.
The ancient massage therapists’ secret? It’s quick and easy to do to yourself and feels almost as good as someone else working your scalp. Here’s a video demo of a self-scalp massage. Follow along with me and get your head rubbed at the same time.
This shows me sitting to perform the scalp massage, but the BEST way to experience this is laying down in bed. Your arms won’t get tired and when you’re ready for that nap afterward, you’re already in bed. Enjoy!
If you’re like most of my clients, the scalp massage is your favorite part of the massage. It is also one of the most relaxing things on the planet. Having the scalp rubbed relaxes tension in the head, improves headaches, relaxes the face, releases tension in the neck and the jaw. And it just plain feels good.
