Indian Head Massage

What is it?

Indian Head Massage as one would think originates from India where it has been practised for centuries within the Indian Culture. It has been used regularly and as a way of life to maintain a level of stress-free harmony and relaxation as well as a healthy body and a strong and healthy head of hair.  The massage itself encompasses an upper back, shoulder, neck, arms, scalp and face massage, in other words the whole of the upper torso.

Todays world we live in is full of stress that we did not experience hundreds of years ago. Life is now lived at a faster pace in general and with growing pollution which is inherent in everything from the food we eat to the water we drink to the air we breathe, all add to the toxins which can get stored in our cell tissue. Our bodies are amazing structures built to heal and regenerate but they have limits and are constantly being overloaded.  One of the benefits of Indian Head Massage is that it helps to release toxins from the body and so supports the body’s natural cleansing process.

Indian Head Massage has a great advantage over many other complimentary therapies as it can be performed anywhere, at home, at the office, wherever there is a chair. The client remains fully clothed during the treatment which can be performed with or without creams and oils to the scalp and facial area.

Benefits can include an overall improvement in muscle tissue, release of muscle tension, reduction in stress levels, a sense of well-being and an emotional uplift in mood, release of toxins, deep relaxation, improvement in concentration, relief from eyestrain, increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, relief from stiffness of neck and shoulders, relief from insomnia and improved general sleep pattern, stimulation of the scalp and hair growth, relief from tension headache, removal of fibrous adhesions, energising and re-balancing of the body and balancing of the upper chakras. It is also a great treatment for those who are structuring a pain management plan.

There are some contra-indications and not everyone can have a treatment. Your therapist will take a history prior to a treatment and you must always inform them if anything changes within your general health. In this instance many complimentary therapies may be contra-indicated in which case we would recommend Reiki to aid healing. Indian Head Massage as a treatment combined with Reiki is often a powerful combination with excellent results.
