Acupressure and Hair Loss Prevention
If you do acupressure—which dates back to 1600 BC and is embraced by Chinese culture to treat body ailments—you will see results very quickly in your hair. As we know, the health of hair and scalp is due to the ample supply of blood. Acupressure allows for proper blood circulation. In addition, it reduces hair dandruff and dead skin cells and reinvigorates the scalp, allowing for hair growth and the reduction of hair loss.
Acupressure Points for Hair Growth
The body has innumerable pressure points that can be used for taking care of the hair. An acupressure known as the Paihui Spot works to jump start the blood vessel in head and scalp, which serves to supply oxygen and nutrients to hair follicles.
Here are some guides in helping you use acupressure for healthy hair.
- To stimulate scalp nerves, twirl hair strands around finger and pull at the roots, repeating the process to cover the entire scalp.
- The Paihui Spot is located at the top of the head, above your brows. The pressure point must be stimulated to aid in hair growth. Do this by massaging the area first in circular strokes, then move on to massaging the entire scalp.
- Following this process, you need to start the occipital ridge. Located on hairline above neck, this is the meeting point of skull muscles. This is a very intense way to stimulate the scull and works wonders in relieving stress.
- Apply pressure on this point using fingers and hold for a time you feel comfortable. Just note you will feel great the longer the hold. When finished, blood will flow to the points of your body that need it.
