Health and Beauty Benefits of a Scalp Massage

One of the best things about getting your hair done at a salon is the scalp massage. It is a simple technique where you knead soft tissues in the body, which can create a calming effect and remove tension. The scalp is filled with nerve endings and a majority of the nervous system is located inside the skull. A good scalp massage will stimulate your nervous system. A scalp massage is a way to reduce stress. At Zoe Grace Salon as an upgrade to your service we offer scalp treatments, such as calming elixer for a sensitive scalp or scalp treatments for dandruff and flaking. Let us know your scalp concerns and we will build a treatment for you.
