Indian Head Massage - What Is It?
Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for over 1000 years. It is a gentle, relaxing massage incorporating the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, head and face.
This gentle yet effective therapy uses a variety of techniques to manipulate the soft tissue. A range of different massage pressures and rhythms are used to stimulate the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck and head, flowing into a blissful face massage which focuses on stimulating acupressure points.
Who Can It Help?
Treatment can provide relief from tension and symptoms of stress and anxiety, as it induces a state of calm, peace and tranquillity. It may also help increase levels of alertness and concentration as the body and mind feels refreshed and invigorated after a treatment. Working directly on the lymphatic areas of the face and neck, Indian Head Massage can help the body clear toxins and aid your immune system.
In addition to helping with relaxation and well-being, Indian Head Massage may also provide relief from aches and pains such as headaches and neck and shoulder tension, ease eye strain and symptoms of sinusitis, assist with better sleep, improve the condition of your hair and scalp and loosen any tightness held in the scalp area.
What to Expect During an Indian Head Massage Session?
Treatments take place on a massage couch, using a nourishing oil or wax-based product (discussed at the time of your massage). The oil/wax enables me to provide a free-flowing massage and work into areas of tension. Towels are carefully placed to ensure your modesty and keep you warm and comfortable throughout the treatment.
