Head Massage Video
The head massage is probably one of the most important and at the same time most satisfying spots to massage. As we are living in an age of information, tremendous amount of stress is put on the brain to digest all the various inputs. This means that for the brain to fully function it needs oxygen. Muscle tension in the head can lead to lack of oxygen in the brain and will interfere with our processing of information. Headaches, TMJ dysfunction and chronic fatigue syndrome are only some of the most obvious health conditions that can arise from that.
Head massages can release this tension and help to create an environment that can handle all the information put inside of our head. Relaxation exercises and meditation are definitely also very helpful in this regard.
One observation that I made is very interesting. You see kids are now much faster learners than they have been. The computer technology forces them to do so. I mean my little kids have become so comfortable with the speed of the computer that they are blogging, bringing out their own websites etc. But at the same time the prevalence of headaches in kids has risen too.
Of course there is a diet component, but I still think that the technology forces them to think faster. And the price is tension headaches. The kids in my family love head massage the best. That is actually what they think is real massage - hey it's done fast, and they feel great afterwards to go back to the computer and get some more information in their heads.
Head massage take a little bit of time. Don't rush through it. If you are patient, you will have tremendous results. Move very methodically, don't leave a space out. Nothing is worse than have a head massage and one spot was not done. In most cases the receiver will let you know, but I always follow the same pattern. And to make sure I did everything I do all the spots twice.
There are sometimes some very sensitive spots on the head. Don't try to work on them. Work around them first and then go back to them. Usually they will be a lot less sensitive.

What is the goal of a head massage. First of all of course release of muscular tension. The head is covered in many places by flat muscle tissue. And second you try to make it so that the skin on the scalp is freely movable.

A lot of the times when there is tension or a headache, some areas cannot be moved freely, and as a result of that there will be a lack of circulation and oxygen there and the tissue will be sluggish. The head massage can revitalize the area, increase circulation and pump some oxygen in the area.
A good head massage will leave a person with the feeling of lightness, vitality and energy.
