Scalp massagers are among those devices that can’t technically be called “necessities” but offer so many benefits that they quickly start to feel like must-haves. Whether you’re suffering from a severe migraine, a chronic headache, insomnia, sinusitis, or you’re just under constant stress, a good head massager can bring you a lot of relief. As with any other product, the experience you’ll get from a head massager largely depends on the device’s quality and whether you’ve chosen the right item for your specific needs. However, if you’ve bought the right item, there are many benefits to look for:

  • Helps with stress. If you think that you don’t like massages, chances are that you just haven’t experienced a good massage. A properly-done head massage can relieve stress more effectively and efficiently than most other alternatives.
  • Improves blood circulation. Whether you’re healthy or not, stimulating blood circulation and lymphatic drainage is a great way to make sure that you’ll stay healthy for a long time.
  • Migraine relief. Chronic migraine and headache is a hell to live with. While a head massager is not going to cure such conditions it can offer almost unparalleled relief.

Detoxifies the body. Lots of products nowadays claim to help “detox” your body. The fact of the matter is that the body does this on its own and scalp massagers are a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system.

With all the health myths that are rampaging through the internet it’s easy to dismiss claims such as “head massagers stimulate hair growth” – it just sounds made up. And to an extent, that’s a justified reaction – a head massager is not a magical item that will make your hair start growing. The fact of the matter is that there are lots of factors that contribute to hair growth and sometimes even the best scalp massager won’t be able to help. However, good head massagers do help by stimulating the blood flow to the scalp. They also help activate the receptors in the scalp that increase hair growth. So, if you’re trying to stimulate your hair to grow, a scalp massager won’t offer a guaranteed success but it is a powerful tool to use nonetheless.

Head massagers come in three different basic types, each having its benefits and drawbacks:

  • Helmet devices. These full-head massagers are designed to work only on the head and the scalp and only in specific ways. Good helmet massagers will offer different functions and features so choose them carefully as they can only do what they are designed to do. They are usually designed to use in the bed while you’re reading, browsing or getting ready to go to sleep.
  • Portable devices. These massagers are a much more versatile alternative. They can be used on any part of the head or even the rest of the body – shoulders, arms, legs, knees, ankles, feet, etc. They are usually waterproof and are meant to be used in the bathroom.
  • Manual devices. These analog devices are meant to give simple stroking scalp massages as you move them up and down your head. They do offer a pleasurable sensation and can help with stress relief but can’t do much beyond that.

Head massagers are an innovative solution to a lot of the daily troubles of the modern man or woman. Insomnia, migraine, chronic headache, simple stress – a good head massager can bring you a lot of relief for any of these problems.
