The Indian Head 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 may include a gentle face massage with techniques that help circulation, skin tone, and sinus and headache problems.
Indian Head Massage can provide relief from aches and pains, stress symptoms, insomnia, promote hair growth, soothe, comfort and rebalance your energy flow which gives you a deep sense of peace, calm and tranquillity.
Indian head massage helps to:
- increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders
- improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow
- frees knots of muscular tension
- relaxes connective tissue
- aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products.
- It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension.
