This product is a must-have for anyone suffering from a chronic illness like dysautonomia. The Head Trip Massager, available at Bed Bath & Beyond, retails for a mere $9.99 and provides instant, hypnotic relaxation. It is like the best scalp massage you've ever had, instantly transporting you to a serene, calming paradise. My massage therapist had one and tried it on my scalp following a massage and it felt amazing. I then decided to purchase one myself and it is probably the best ten bucks I've ever spent.
The Head Trip is great because it is not electric or battery operated, you can take it anywhere, and it is inexpensive, lightweight and good quality. There are, however, still a few minor issues with this product. Beware: if you have long, thick hair like mine, even one use may tangle, tease, and knot your hair badly. So do not use it if you plan to go anywhere afterwards. Instead use it before bed to promote relaxation and restful sleep, or in the morning before you do your hair. Also, this product is inevitably more relaxing if someone else uses it on your scalp. Luckily, it is easy to use, does the work itself and requires minimal effort from the other person. Because this product promotes natural muscle relaxation, it may be good for people who suffer from headaches. It actually helps take the edge off my stubborn TMJ pain.
If you are a fan of this product, you may also like the Body Trip Massager, also available at Bed Bath & Beyond for $12.99. It is great for back and leg massages, encouraging better circulation and natural relaxation.
