Indian Head Massage

What Is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for over a thousand years as part of everyday family life. This therapy can be performed without oils with the client seated and fully clothed, so it is ideally suited to the workplace or situations where it may not be appropriate to give a full-body hour long massage. Indian Head Massage will soothe away stress and tension, leaving you relaxed, revitalized and re-energized. 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, and then working deeply into the neck where tension accumulates relieves 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 includes a gentle face massage with techniques that help circulation, skin tone, and sinus and headache problems.
