Head and Face Massagers at Walgreens

You may think a deep, fulfilling massage is only available at a high-end spa, but at Walgreens you can equip yourself with personal and portable tools to do the job at home. Our head and face massagers can provide incredibly soothing and therapeutic action for sore, overworked, and stress-tightened tissues. You save money and time by skipping the pricey salon and achieving some rejuvenating relief on your own terms.

The Boons of Massage

Massage is focused and rhythmic pressure applied to the body. It has many potential benefits from both a physiological and emotional standpoint. An investigation of massage therapy's biochemical impacts, summarized in a 2005 issue of the International Journal of Neuroscience, showed a number of stress-reduction and mood-boosting effects. According to that review, massage therapy may elevate levels of serotonin and dopamine. These are hormones that elevate mood. Studies also suggest that massage may also decrease cortisol, a stress hormone that in excess can hamper immune function. These findings suggest a potential for regular massage to address depression and even illness although more research is needed.

Scalp massage may also help alleviate symptoms related to headaches, possibly by mitigating muscle tension in the head, neck, and shoulders and also by bolstering overall blood circulation. More research is needed in this area as well.

The Mayo Clinic suggests that massage in general has shown promise, through certain studies, in addressing a variety of other conditions as well. While many people think of massage as a purely indulgent treat, an increasing number of studies suggest that regular massage may promote better overall health.

Types of Heads and Face Massagers

Head and face massagers encompass a wide variety of forms and functions. You'll find multiple options from leading brands. If you've been suffering from stress, muscle soreness and tightness, or insomnia, these easy-to-use tools may be useful for alleviating symptoms and promoting calm, relaxation, and mental clarity. You can use these tools on yourself or with a partner.

You'll be able to read up on the design of each massager and the directions for its intended use. If other customers have used a given head or face massager and submitted reviews, you can also scrutinize their personal ratings for some additional insight. If one variety doesn't seem to square with you, try out another format.

A head or face massager can become an elegantly simple but hugely therapeutic part of your regular self-care routine. Walgreens also offers a variety of back and body massagers, as well as massagers for your feet. Speak with your doctor and make sure that massage is safe and appropriate for you. Then come browse through these varied models and see if one or another doesn't appeal to your needs and to your personal style.
