Massage Techniques: Head
Every time you chew or talk the muscles in your scalp are working. That's why rubbing the head and scalp can be surprisingly relaxing (and feels great!).
-Ever noticed that a salon hair wash feels amazing? Well, every time you chew, talk, or raise your eyebrows, the muscles in your scalp are working. So, rubbing them can be surprisingly relaxing. To give your partner a head massage, raise your thumbs near the top or back of his head. Rotate your fingertips in small circles on the scalp, moving slowly from the forehead to the back of the head. Now, when you're down with the scalp, position your thumbs at the hairline in the middle of the forehead. From here, you can use your fingers to rub the temples and also the jaw, which can get really tense. Releasing these often ignored muscles is a great way to start a head-to-toe massage.
