Give Yourself a Scalp Massage

Is there anything more relaxing than a scalp massage? I always feel so much calmer and more relaxed after I get one at the salon. But, did you know that a good scalp rub may actually have health benefits? Health experts believe that scalp massage can help release serotonin (the feel-good hormone) into your body, helping boost your mood and even relieve pain. It is believed to promote happiness, calmness and general well-being.

Here's how to give yourself your own scalp massage: Spread your fingers on both hands and run them through your hair, beginning behind your ears and circulate, sort of like you're shampooing your hair. Pay special attention to the base of your head and neck, where a lot of people hold tension. Be sure to use good pressure, too. Feel better now?:)
