Benefits of a head massage

The advantages of a head massage depend on the specific type you choose. Take the cranial-sacral massage, for instance. It’s a gentle technique that focuses on the central nervous system in the head, spine, and sacrum.

This kind of head massage is commonly used to:

1. Release tension

2. Alleviate migraine and headache pain

3. Decrease stress

4. Promote relaxation

It’s worth noting that even simpler massages, like the ones you can do at home, can still help by reducing stress and tension, conditioning the scalp, and improving blood circulation in your head and neck.
