Face & Scalp Therapy

The benefits of a face and scalp massage shouldn’t be missed, and here’s why:

As a technologically focused society, we tend to live in the upper part of our body. We spend a lot of our day in our head; staring at screens, crinkling our faces, straining our eyes, scrunching our forehead as we think, game and type away. It is these very actions that make this one of the best places to help relax the mind, the body and decrease stress.

Benefits Include:

• Lymphatic Drainage – Did you know there are 43 muscles in the face? Massage increase the flow of blood and oxygen to muscles, including facial muscles. This can be highly effective due to its ability to prevent sluggish circulation and remove unwanted toxins. This reduces inflammation and and keeps our complexion healthy.

• TMJ relief (Temporal Mandibular Joint) – Does your jaw click, or does your jaw lock? Do you clench or grind your teeth when you concentrate or at night? Massaging your head and face especially jaw and temporal region will help reduce those symptoms. These areas can get tense and develop trigger points leaving you with a lot of aches. Massage will loosen up at the tension and you feel great.

• Headache Relief – Muscle tension is one of the leading causes of some headaches. Relaxing the muscles of the scalp, face and neck can bring soothing relief to headache sufferers in just one session.

• Clears the Sinuses – Massaging the acupressure points can help open and relieve pressure in the sinuses. Perfect for when you are trying to get over the last bits of a cold!
