The scalp is closely connected with the brain, and therefore the impulses launched during the impact on it quickly penetrate into the cerebral cortex, harmonizing the work of the whole body. Talking about the massage, don’t forget about Eastern philosophy, which indicates that the whole person is “permeated” with biologically active points, each of which is responsible for the operation of specific organs and systems. At the same time, the overwhelming majority of such zones are located on the head.
