In Chinese Medicine, the circulation system plays a significant part in determining how strong your memory is. As we age, so does our circulation, and blood flow to the brain starts to slow down as well. This is also why our memories tend to gradually lose their sharpness.
However, a deep scalp massage done frequently and consistently will go a long way towards improving the memory. Light, simple strokes over the top of the head will help promote blood flow to the head and into the brain. In addition to memory, this can also benefit those with balance issues and even problems with thinning hair and balding.
