Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage can be incredibly invigorating and involves deep manipulation of the scalp, intense massage of the neck and shoulder areas and a gentle massage to release some of the pressure points on the face. It is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. Traditionally Indian families used this as a form of relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in community rituals such as weddings and births
The aim of Indian Head Massage is to release the areas of stress, which accumulate, in and around the head, neck and facial areas. Indian Head Massage is a particularly good therapy especially if you spend long hours at work sitting at a computer!
The therapy can take place over clothing, but you will be asked to remove any hair clips/ bands and earrings or necklaces. For full benefits upper clothing should be removed to enable oils and lotions to be applied to shoulders and neck. You will be seated in a normal hard backed chair, or a massage bench as you prefer. I enhance treatments by adding a beautiful element of deep breathing and whole body relaxation.
Indian Head Massage is especially effective in helping clients to:
relieve stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. It reportedly helps increase joint mobility; improves 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.
Indian Head Massage has also been found to help clients to increase their energy and levels of alertness.
