Indian Head Massage is a relaxing therapy with beneficial effects. Massage has always played an important part in Indian life, featuring in the earliest Ayurvedic texts dating back 4000 years.
There are immediate benefits to be gained from an Indian Head and Shoulder Massage, which include tension relief in neck muscles by the removal of toxins thereby increasing the blood and oxygen supply, revitalising the muscles.
Eye strain is relieved in a similar way – circulation is greatly improved and blood pressure is reduced. Nervous tension is reduced, increasing oxygen flow to the brain to relieve migraines.
In the long term this massage therapy offers non-accumulative, non invasive, progressive effects including more energy, better sleep patterns and improved posture.
The massage begins at the shoulders with a gentle soothing effleurage giving the body a chance to calm down and relax.
Once the shoulders have been released of tension the neck is worked on using traditional massage techniques. The head and face follow and are treated separately, achieving a complete massage to restore balance to the nervous, muscular and skeletal systems.
As well as being relaxing most people experience a heightened state of awareness hence finding it easier to concentrate after a treatment – an ideal therapy for exam preparation. It is worth noting that if your body needs healing then it will try to do so immediately after a treatment, therefore, if at all possible, rest for a short while afterwards to induce a more relaxed state.
