Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment.
In Western culture today we spend much of our time in our heads, so this treatment can really help to calm the mind and is deeply relaxing. Working with a firm and gentle rhythm it helps to relieve muscular discomfort and tension as well as calming the spirit and aiding relaxation. It also improves circulation in the head, enhances the senses and promotes clear thinking.
The massage 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. 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.
My Indian Head Massage treatment is performed with the client lying down as I feel this makes for a more relaxing experience. Oils are optional but highly recommended as part of the treatment.
