Hair Regrowth - How Acupressure Can Help You?

All of us desire to flaunt long, voluminous and beautiful hair, but all our efforts are thwarted due to factors that are beyond our control. Many suffer from hair damage and hair fall even after using the best hair care products. There are several anti-hair fall products that are available today, but how effective are they? Hair fall is a deep-rooted common problem and needs the right diagnosis to help treat it. So what is the solution? Acupressure is the answer to your concern and can help you with your hair woes.

What is acupressure and how can it help?
Many people rarely think of alternative medicine when it comes to hair fall treatments, but it can be an effective solution for your problems. Alternative medicine is time-tested and adopted from traditional practices of medicine, and one such treatment is that of acupressure. Popularly used by the Chinese culture, it dates back to decades of years ago. It involves a deep massage of the scalp to prevent hair fall woes. It is just like a hot oil massage and is referred to as the Shiatsu massage. Here are some benefits of acupressure for hair fall:

  • Stimulates blood circulation in the scalp
  • Eradicates toxins including dandruff and dead cells from the scalp
  • Relieves stress that can be a cause of your hair fall problems
  • Improves blood flow and helps nutrients reach to your scalp

Acupressure massage – how is it done?
Acupressure uses various special pressure points, which lie along the meridians or channels in our body. It is believed that the vital energy of life flows through these invisible channels. Out of these, the Paihui Spot located on the head is vital. To boost hair growth, this pressure point is stimulated and rubbed several times during the day, followed by a relaxing head massage. This entire process creates a benign environment for hair growth. Some of the other acupressure points for hair growth is located on the stomach, back and abdomen. These can also be used to alleviate hair fall problem.

Is acupressure safe?
People from all ages can try this except for pregnant women or people who have high blood pressure since it can trigger specific points that can be detrimental. There are no potential side effects of this type of therapy as it is all-natural. Following a good acupressure treatment from a licensed and experienced professional in this field will aid to nurture the scalp from within. Of all the non-conventional ways to treat hair loss, acupressure is probably the most effective method as it does not use any chemicals and is definitely worth a try. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
