At Five Senses, we take our haircut experience to a whole other level. First, you’re pampered with a complimentary neck, shoulder, and scalp relief treatment at the beginning of each service. Then when it’s time for a shampoo, your scalp is massaged while being cleansed with high-quality Aveda products tailored to your specific hair type.
If you’ve never had a scalp massage, you are missing out. Your scalp is full of nerves that are near the surface of your skin, and massaging the scalp stimulates the nervous system to promote a deep sense of relaxation that you can often feel throughout your whole body! The talented staff at Five Senses Spa, Salon, & Barbershop are here to help you discover all the benefits of scalp massage and to understand how our holistic haircut experience sets us apart from the competition.
Reduced Muscle Tension
You may not realize that there are muscles in your scalp, but these muscles can become tense. Muscle tension usually creates a ripple effect as one tense muscle causes the muscle next to it to tense up. This can continue throughout the body, resulting in widespread tension and pain. By relaxing these muscles, you create the opposite ripple effect that reduces tension all over.
Promotes Hair Growth
Some research indicates that scalp massage can promote healthy hair growth by stretching the cells of the hair follicles, which stimulates them and helps produce healthier thicker hair. The stimulation of the scalp also promotes increased circulation to the scalp, which brings more nutrients to the area to encourage healthy growth.
Drug-Free Pain Relief for Headaches
If you’re prone to tension headaches, scalp massage is an excellent alternative to the medicine cabinet. Not only can it provide instant relief with no side effects, but research shows that regular scalp massages can reduce the frequency and severity of chronic headaches.
How to Incorporate Scalp Massage into Your Routine
You can incorporate a scalp massage into your routine daily by gently rubbing your scalp with your fingertips in a small circular motion every time you wash your hair, or whenever you start to feel a little tense. To get the full benefits of a regular professional scalp massage, make sure to regularly visit Five Senses for trims. It’s a quick and easy way to relieve stress and tension that only takes a few moments out of your day, but you’ll still be feeling the effects long after!
