Alopecia is an auto-immune disorder which causes the body’s immune system to attack it’s hair follicles. Shock, trauma, illness, diabetes, anaemia, crash dieting, medication, and chemotherapy are all common causes. It can take up to 5 years before stress manifests itself so many Clients come in feeling that they have suffered no stress until we look a little further back. A blood test is recommended to rule out thyroid problems, diabetes and anaemia. Catching the condition in its early stages shows the best recovery rate. With the right diet and nutritional supplements and a decrease in stress levels as well as regular treatments of intense massage resulting in LOTS of stimulation to the scalp and follicles will help or encourage hair growth once more.
Regular treatment No 1 and home treatment is required. The more stimulation to the follicles and scalp the quicker the results.
