Face and scalp massage

Before you start, wash your hands, as you will be touching your face.

This session is for stretching and relaxation, so you might want to put on some music. You will want to be able to sit comfortably, probably at a table, so that you can rest your elbows while touching your face.

Now, rub your hands together generating friction. Place your warm palms over your eyes. Close your eyes or keep them open, it does not matter, drop your shoulders, observe your thoughts or your breathing, whatever helps you to take be calm. This is great for headaches and eye strain.

You can reach Touching Well by mobile: 0794 227 6538, or via our landline 0115 648 9636, or the contact form.

Opening times: Monday to Thursday daytime

 I hope to see you soon. With warm regards, Regina

Move your face. Move your your jaw, see if you can involve your neck and chest muscles. Write your name with your tongue in the air, make big letters. As a challenge, write it in mirror image. Do the same with your eyes, again big letters. Can you keep the rest of your face still?

Put your flat hands over your jaw and move them about without sliding over your skin. Put your hands at the side of your face and move the tissue. Where and how does the tissue move? Is there a difference between the left and right side? Place your hands slightly further back over your ears. Rest them first, then move them. What do you hear?

Massage your ears thoroughly. Pull your ears. Where do you feel the pull?

Shampoo your scalp. Experiment with different movements: slow and fast, firmer and lighter, moving the tissue and gliding over the scalp, short and long movements. In Indian Head Massage there are at least seven different ways of massaging the scalp. Make sure you pay attention to the nape of your neck just above the hair line. Finish with fast windscreen wipers around your ears, this should wake you up.

Last, stroke your forehead from the midline towards the temples. Do that a few times, nice and slow.

Finish with a mouth exercise: how far you can move the corners of your mouth towards your ears?
