Localized massage to treat one of the most tensed areas
Give your stiff neck and tight shoulders a break – you’ll feel better all over. This focused massage releases tension and restores comfort to this typically tense area. Do you suffer frequently from headaches and feel the cervical area blocked but don’t have enough time for a full body massage? This therapy will help you get rid of the pain, relaxing the shoulders, neck and scalp. Continuous build-up of stress and tension in the neck and shoulder region leads to stiff necks, aching shoulders and headaches. Desk jobs, long working hours, incorrect sitting positions and general bad postural habits may all contribute to pain and discomfort in these areas. The importance of the neck and shoulder region lies in the fact that the neck is a flexible structure that connects the brain to the rest of the body. Tension in this important part of the body invariably causes overall discomfort. Since the human scalp is replete with nerve endings and the majority of the nervous system located inside the skull, along with the brain, a good scalp massage stimulates the nervous system. A scalp massage increases blood flow to the head thereby easing stress and chronic headaches. Friction movements to the scalp causes the release of endorphins, which, in turn, helps in relieving pain in the area. Scalp massages have also been regarded as the ideal way to de-stress, and are known to be effective as relaxing and calming techniques.
