Head & Shoulder Massage

 Definition    

Head and Shoulder Massage is the most popular massage as it is a deeply relaxing massage focusing on built up stress and muscle tension in all areas around the neck, shoulders and across the back.

Practice

This type of massage is easy to administer because the client sits on a comfortable chair, fully clothed. The therapist stands behind the client and commences by kneading the shoulders and the neck. He or she then runs his fingers through the client's scalp. This causes blood to rush to the massaged area and stimulates the scalp. After this the therapist uses a series of light slapping movements with his (or her) palm on the back and sides of the head to induce relaxation. When the head, neck and shoulders have been sufficiently massaged, the therapist then proceeds to massage the face and ear. Other strokes such as gentle tugging of hair, and 'cracking' the neck are also carried out.
