We are not going
to lie, the papouilles in the hair, there is nothing more relaxing. At the
editorial office, we are all fans. It is enough that we start playing with our
hair so that we freeze completely and our eyelids close little by little. If
you too have already cried out “Are you already quitting?” But it’s
not even 5 minutes. When you stop crushing your hair after 20 minutes, this
article is for you. Better than the papouilles, the cranial massage is a true
source of relaxation. And what’s more? It is a very pleasant way to take care
of your hair.
The benefits of cranial massage
cranial massage helps to relax certain areas of tension and, therefore, to
relax. After a trying day, to relieve a stress that is gradually taking hold,
and even to relieve migraines, cranial massage is very effective. It has a
positive influence on the quality of your sleep and can even boost your
concentration. In addition, head massage is recommended to stimulate hair
growth. If you notice a significant loss of your hair, cranial massage can be a
solution. The oil used has nourishing properties that penetrate the scalp
through massage, and deeply hydrate the hair. But in addition, the cranial
massage in itself stimulates your hair and its growth.
Where does cranial massage come from?
It is an Indian
technique practiced for millennia. Originally, cranial massage was performed by
mothers when they styled their daughters. Since then, the practice is
perpetuated and has spread in the West. Its soothing and relaxing properties
are particularly suited to our hyperactive lifestyles. Cranial massage is
suitable for all profiles, and particularly beneficial for stressed,
over-stressed and tired people.
How to practice cranial massage?
First of all, it
is advisable to create a relaxing atmosphere. You can dim the light, light
scented candles, put on soft, soothing music. Then, the ideal is to sit in a
sitting position. Some facials end with a head massage, lying on your back, and
it’s very relaxing too. However, to make the most of its benefits, we recommend
that you do so in its entirety.
Once seated, the
masseur stands behind you and places his hands on your shoulders. It is then
necessary to massage the trapezoids by gently pressing the muscle, then
gradually moving outwards. The shoulders and arms should also be massaged.
Then, at the shoulder blades, the masseur performs rotations along the spine.
Now that you’re relaxed, the masseur can go to the 2nd stage and massage your
neck. It is then necessary to go up gently towards the top of the skull by
carrying out rotations with the thumbs.
