Head massages by Massage Therapists
Massages are a part of wellness and stress relief; however, when a scalp or head massage is included, it can cause some uneasiness especially if the client has hair extensions, wigs, or hairpieces.
Also, if one's next stop after the massage is a business meeting, one may not want their hairstyling manipulated too much. In addition, one may wonder if the massage oil may be too heavy especially if one does not have a hair appointment scheduled for a few more days.
For those who are a little past due for a relaxer touch-up, would you worry about the therapist feeling your new growth or kinky roots?
The benefits of the head massage is to promote blood circulation, hair growth, and to relieve stress.
Head and scalp massages should be discussed prior to the start of each body massage. Most therapists are in tuned to know whether to stop at the neck versus massaging the whole head.
With dreadlocks, head massages are more welcomed because there is less concern about restyling the hair.
Any hairstyle that is free of commercial enhancement opens one up for the ultimate freedom of a scalp massage.
Most pampering hair salons will include a scalp massage during the shampoo service. So even if someone has hair extensions, their hairstylist can develop a scalp massage to work around their hair extensions.
Please also note that there are some massage therapists that insist on head to toe manipulation and are less flexible in their routine. Communication and recommendations always come in handy when choosing your wellness solutions.
