Scalp Massage

A scalp massage is an individual massage which can help massage his or her scalp, it can be a good way to relieve stress. As the scalp is massaged, pressure is applied on nerve endings that are associated with acupressure points, and this pressure on the nerve endings releases endorphins that help relieve stress and increase pleasure. Scalp massages are popular for their relaxing and calming effect. They stimulate blood flow in the scalp, which promotes hair growth by providing more nutrients to the hair follicles, and they help relieve headaches, stress and sinus congestion.

Benefits of Scalp Massage

  • Scalp massage can increase the production of certain chemicals in the body, including endorphins and serotonin. These chemicals can help put you in a better mood, reducing your stress and creating an environment for relaxation.
  • Scalp massage also can relieve pain by improving circulation and removing muscle tension. This can be especially helpful if you have a migraine or headache. Migraines are sometimes caused by a decrease in serotonin levels.
  • Scalp massage may be able to increase serotonin levels and relieve pain. Headaches, on the other hand, may be caused by muscle tension, which a scalp massage can also alleviate.
  • Scalp massage can also strengthen hair follicles which, in turn, strengthens the entire hair shaft. Often this type of massage is accompanied by special oils that are applied to the scalp and hair to provide increased nourishment and work with the hair’s natural oils to repair dryness and breakage.
  • Since a scalp massage often includes massage of the neck, back and shoulders, it can also help relieve that crick in your neck.
  • A scalp massager is that it increases blood circulation. This increase of blood flow can improve hair follicle growth, leading to more or newer hair.

1. Describe yourself in three words: Dynamic, Compassionate, Nurturing
2. Why do you massage?: I find that healing touch from another human being is far more profound than any modern medical technology. my own scoliosis and body imbalance is being healed by healing touch and self help. And I want to use my knowledge to help those people who is carrying street physically . I believe mind, body, and spirit are all parallel with each other. And one thing helps the other in order to feel good all together!!
3.What inspires you?: Gravity!! Most of us never put gravity in equation of our everyday living. But haven’t you forgot that it is the most powerful energy thats all around us?It keeps us grounded but when we are sitting at the desk slouching, that;s also gravity. We are constantly fighting gravity but we don’t realize it. It’s our best friend and worst enemy at the same time. how funny is that?!…

Tiffani Pelleter-Bacquaert

Tiffani has been a massage therapist dedicated to health and wellness for over 20 years. She has experienced and treated many health challenges that have inspired a passion for a lifestyle committed to wellness. Although the foundation of her work is deep myofascial therapy, for the past several years she has been studying Cranial Sacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation (Upledger Institute) as well as Osteopathic friction (Ben Benjamin). Also, since 2008, she has been a certified yoga teacher, adding mediation shortly after.

Currently her journey into authentically serving as a healing presence for others has led her to MUIH, the alternative medicine sister university of Georgetown Medical School, where she is nearly finished obtaining a Masters in Health and Wellness Coaching specializing in nutrition. Her foundational therapy involves deep, slow gliding strokes along the trajectory of the inherent postural orientation of the individual, which encourages the body to remember its natural disposition. This therapy opens the body to proper circulation and efficient movement, and, in her experience, is generally what people are looking for when they want deep tissue massage and pain relief. She also offers a 10 session protocol of Structural Integration, which is intended to completely reorient the body’s relationship to gravity as well as Cranial Sacral Therapy which restores the body/mind/spirit to harmony and balance through re-establishing proper fluid distribution throughout the body with gentle touch and intuitive dialogue which frees up the energetic blockages that cause pain and misalignment.
