Open Your Crown & Third Eye Chakras with Scalp Massage
A year ago
A gentle scalp massage is a simple and beautiful strategy to open your crown and third eye chakra while also nourishing your scalp and strengthening your roots.
We have Paola, owner of Balanced Guru, here to explain the benefits of an intentional scalp massage.
We tend to take the scalp for granted because there’s nothing flashy or trendy about it. Usually no one sees our scalp so we primarily focus on hair health. Nevertheless, it is the scalp that takes the highest toll in anything we do or don’t do to our hair.
There are different reasons and symptoms for why your scalp may need love and attention. It may be an overload of styling products, it may be environmental reasons such as the weather (too hot and humid might result in oily scalps, while too cold and dry might result in dry and flaky or an undernourished scalp), it could be too much blow drying, chemical treatments, hair coloring, too little shampooing, too much shampooing. The list goes on.
The good news is that regardless of the reasons, you can always give your scalp a break and return it to balance. With a nourishing topical treatment and a gentle scalp massage, you can stimulate blood circulation as well as stimulate the crown chakra and third-eye chakras to help relieve stress, improve focus, and enhance meditation.
The crown chakra is located at the top of our head and when balanced we feel connected to our higher self, we enjoy a healthy sense of curiosity and knowledge, and it becomes our gateway to the spiritual world.
The third eye involves our intuition. When balanced, we are able to listen to our body and quiet the mind. Our bodies are wiser than our minds, and fine tuning our intuition is a practice in itself that will help keep our intentions clear in order to manifest our dreams, and make our goals a reality.
A gentle head massage with a nourishing botanical oil is a heavenly way to incorporate your inner beauty practice with your outer beauty routine.
How to Open your Crown & Third Eye Chakras with a Scalp Massage
1. Get Comfortable
First prepare your surroundings, sit comfortably, have your scalp treatment, candles, aromatherapy, anything you use to relax on hand.
Focus on a couple of affirmations for your higher chakras.
Affirmations for your third eye chakra:
“I see all things in clarity,” “I am open to the wisdom within,” “I can manifest my vision.”
Affirmations for your crown chakra:
“I am open to new ideas,” “Divinity resides within me,” “Information I need comes to me,” “The world is my teacher,” “I am guided by my higher power,” and “I am guided by inner wisdom.”
Start with dry hair. You can either part your hair and apply a couple of drops of your favorite (diluted and safe for topical use) oil starting from the front of your head towards the back, or only on the area you wish to treat. Likewise, you can apply it spontaneously to different areas of your scalp making sure the dropper touches your skin.
5. Explore the Scalp
Spread your fingers wide and run them through your hair along your scalp. Close your eyes and slowly but intentionally extend and contract your fingertips. Avoid using fingernails while applying equal pressure across your scalp. Then move your fingertips in a circular motion, massaging in different areas while thinking about your affirmations.
Listen to your body and let your fingertips go where they need to go. Remember that your hands are the best healing tool you will ever have.
