Imagine 10 fingernails massaging your scalp to gently melt your stress.
Now add batteries for the most exhilarating, thrilling, intoxicating,
electrifying, rejuvenating, unforgettable HEAD MASSAGE ever!
The battery-assisted Scalp Massager massages the head and scalp with a light, almost tickling sensation. Move the Scalp Massager up and down in a rhythmic action to massage the scalp in a playful relaxing manner. The tingling action is in turn spread down the spine. Also good for joints.
Works well manually, or with battery assisted vibration.
The Scalp Massager gently stimulates million of nerve endings on the scalp, as well as acupressure points that altogether create a pleasant, goose-bumpy stimulation for a"letting-go" sensation. It is also great for other joints in your body where it will stimulate blood flow to ease pain and create relaxation.
The Scalp Massager is an octopus-shaped motorized massager with long "legs" or tines. It consists of a handle, a motor, and the flexible tines with brass tips. You can elect to turn the motor on for a stronger sensation or use it without the motor for a more gentle massage.
First, you may need to "form" it to optimal operating shape. It helps to imagine shaping the tines over a round melon, gently bending each one in a semicircle shape. Make sure the ends of each tine line up uniformly with a tabletop or against the scalp when holding it.
Operation is very simple. Turn on (or leave off) the motor. Then you or someone lowers it onto your scalp or joints, gives it a little twist, then lifts it off. Repeat the process for longer sessions.
These steps will ensure that the ends of the flexible tines stimulate the area and will promote the release of endorphins, the body's own natural painkillers and relaxers. The massager provides soothing pleasurable feelings while relaxing you. Some claim it eliminates headaches on the spot. The tines can be formed into a "rake" for effective neck or back massagers as well.
Anyone who has undergone massage will tell you about the spreading relaxation, increased warmth in local areas, and the stimulation of circulation they experience. Medical studies indicate changes in such things as blood flow; epidermal and cardiovascular function, pain threshold, muscular tone; psychological variables that are so important to maintaining a healthy metabolism. Increases in perspiration and the movement of muscles or internal organs are palpable benefits. In the theories of acupuncture, reflexology and related fields, massage applied to important areas (acupoints) can work to rebalance the flow of Chi in the body, which is why practitioners in those fields use massage techniques.
RESEARCH ON HEALTH EFFECTS
Scientific studies indicate that massage may result in significant relief of pain, in flexibility, in improvements in sleep, reduction in anxiety, and other factors. More effectiveness is usually seen when massage is combined with overall good health disciplines like exercise, healthy psychological practices, nutrition, and adquate rest. Many recognize massage as a good adjunct to fitness and weight-loss programs, for relief of stress, or of constipation. Pressure massage is the mainstay of reflexology, while traditional and alternative medicine considers that harmonizing the Chi through massage leads to long-term health outcomes such as strength, resistance to disease, and a better quality of life.
