What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian Head Massage is a form of massage therapy that was an integral part in India’s family
life thousands of years ago. This form of massage was mentioned in the Ancient Ayurveda texts
4000 years ago.
The massage focuses on the head, neck, shoulder and face. By applying pressure on the
acupressure points around the neck and shoulders it releases blocked energy within the bodies
energy system. It stimulates the blood circulation and the lymphatic system.
What to Expect in a treatment?
The Indian Massage can be given whilst sat in a chair or laid on a massage bed.
The massage can be over clothes or usually with massage oils.
Starting at the upper back pressure is applied by the therapist to the points that dissolve knots and relaxes the muscles. Different applications of deep kneading and pressure movements are applied on
the neck, shoulder, arms and scalp areas. To complete the treatment the therapist will gently apply pressure and stimulate the acupressure points on the face creating a feeling of serenity and peace.
