What is an Indian Head Massage?
An Indian head massage will energise your mind and allow tension to slip away. This ancient technique has been practised for over a thousand years in India, being passed down from generation to generation. It is both a therapeutic and beauty treatment with many wonderful benefits. Indian head massage can be given almost anywhere. The client remains fully clothed and seated in a chair.
It involves using a sequence of moves such as energy balancing techniques, lymphatic drainage, acupressure points, stretching and general massage to the shoulders, neck, face and scalp. The techniques work on both the physical and ethereal body with over 60 movements.
Indian Head massage is effective as it helps soothe and relax the nervous system while relieving joint and muscle stiffness. In addition, it is a very beneficial treatment for tension headaches and eye strain. Also, different strokes and pressure are used to stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory system. These are just a few of the therapeutic benefits of this technique.
Indian head massage is a beauty treatment as well. The secret of Indian womens’ lustrous shining hair is the mixture of oils and the special blend of aromatherapy oils to relax or energise the person.(Oil on hair is optional of course).
What does it involve?
Indian Head Massage works on areas affected by mental and emotional stress. In Western culture today we spend much of our time in our heads, therefore this treatment can really help to calm the mind and is surprisingly deeply relaxing. Working with a firm and gentle rhythm it helps to relieve muscular discomfort and tension as well as calming the spirit and aiding relaxation, it also improves circulation in the head, enhances the senses and promotes clear thinking.
The massage usually begins with the upper back where a combination of deep massage and pressure points help to relax the muscles and to loosen and melt knots. Moving through the shoulders and upper arms further releases the common spots for holding stress and tension. It then works deeply into the neck, where tension accumulates, and helps to relieve headaches and improves cerebral spinal fluid circulation. Moving up to the scalp, techniques are used that stimulate, relax and revive the whole of the head, increasing circulation and promoting healthy hair. Finally the treatment may include a gentle face massage with techniques that help circulation, skin tone, sinus and headache problems.
This therapy can be performed without oils with the client sitting and fully clothed, therefore it is ideally suited to the workplace or situations where it may not be appropriate to give a full-body hour long massage.
