Abstract—The stressful speedily pace of daily lives promotes over-stimulation and over-scheduling, which become chronic anxieties that lead to everyone's need to rest and recover. The exhausting fast pace of daily life promotes over-stimulation and over-scheduling, which become chronic stressors that lead to everyone's needs sometimes to relax. One of the best ways to treat it is by taking a shower underwater and doing scalp massage, it helps to alleviate scalp ache acne or relieves stress anxiety, hair cleansed after a long day particularly helps to reduce high blood pressure, migraine disappears and other health benefits many patients are unable to move alone in need of special family and assistant assistance, In some cases, the spread and negative effect of Virus CoV-19 may lead to cross-transmission, particularly at this time. In this paper, by combining traditional acupuncture, acupressure, scalp massage technic and complex movement of water jet robotic mechanism, which is working and acting on different type scalp of a patient such as ages, gender, long or short hair with the pressure of water and hot air by automation. The study investigated the role of effective water jets at different pressure and distance from nozzle to human scalp which explains the interaction between human feeling and massage by using water jet mechanism. We detail the design of the scalp massage and wash at the same time to reduce time-consuming and by affordable price, which imitates massage experts with complex operations, then was enhanced through an intelligent controller to determine the trajectory of nozzles impacting on human scalp
