Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. Though the treatment was first applied only to the head and hair area to promote a healthy scalp and hair growth, it is now a much broader therapy which incorporates the upper back, shoulders, upper arms and face in the belief that they are all important centres of energy.
An Indian Head Massage is designed to manipulate the energy channels in the head and neck to clear blockages that cause a build-up of negative energy. The belief is that when energy does not flow properly, negative energy builds up, causing common ailments, including stress, aches and pains.
Indian Head Massage works on the areas affected by mental and emotional stress and this relaxing treatment helps to calm the mind, reduce headaches and tension and promote clear thinking.
What does the Therapy involve?
Indian Head Massage is usually performed on a client whilst they are sitting down and fully clothed using a use a range of pressure and rhythms to massage the head, neck, upper back and shoulder areas.
The therapist will massage the shoulders and upper back area using a combination of deep massage and pressure points to help to relax the muscles and to loosen knots and will then work deeply into the neck to relieve stress and tension. Techniques used on the scalp are designed to stimulate, relax and revive the head area to increase circulation and promote healthy hair.
The treatment may also include a face massage where the therapist will gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face. Afterwards you will be advised to sit quietly a while for the effects to sink in.
