Indian Head Massage

indian head massage
Indian head massage is based on an ancient system of healing which has been practised in India for over a thousand years called Ayurveda. It provides Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in rituals such as weddings and births, not to mention everyday events like a trip to the hairdresser.


How does it work?
The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.

 
What does it involve?
You will remain fully clothed and seated in a massage chair for the entire treatment. A range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas will be used. In addition, the pressure points on the face will also be gently stimulated and stroked. If you wish Aromatherapy oils can be used, its up to you.


What is it good for?
Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis.

 
What are the benefits?
Indian head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue, and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products.

 
What are the side effects?
Following a treatment some clients experience tiredness, dizziness, an increased desire to urinate (as the body eliminates toxins and waste materials) or aching muscles. All of these side effects usually last for no more than a few hours, after which clients generally experience increased energy and alertness.
