Step 2

Using four fingers of each hand, quickly glide back and forth, like fast scratching to massage the scalp. Massage each area for about 5 seconds until you cover the entire scalp. This technique helps to stimulate surface circulation.

Step 3

Massage the scalp using a pinching technique with the thumbs. Start along the hairline at the midline with your thumbs facing each other about a centimeter apart. Press thumbs together lifting the scalp tissue. Continue the technique at a moderate pace along the midline until you reach the back of the head. Repeat the technique with 4 more lines (2 on each side of the midline) to cover the entire scalp. This technique relaxes muscle tissue and stimulates surface circulation.
