Indian Head Massage

The Indian Head Massage originates from an Indian alternative medicine system called Ayurveda, where it is believed that the mind and body are intricately connected and can influence one another. There are many benefits from receiving this treatment which are not only physical, but also mentally and emotionally.

The benefits of Indian Head Massage include:

  • Relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression through relaxation
  • Promoting hair growth by increasing oxygen in the hair follicles, stimulating growth and health
  • Preventing headaches and migraines by releasing built-up tension in the head and neck area
  • Reduced tension throughout the whole body
  • Balancing energy levels
  • Stimulating lymphatic drainage by circulating blood to the neck area
  • Boosting memory capabilities
  • Refreshing tired eyes
  • Improving sleep
  • Improving circulation

This ancient technique involves gentle strokes, kneading and pressure point work to release tension and promote relaxation. The treatment typically begins with a gentle neck and shoulder massage, followed by scalp massage and concludes with gentle facial strokes to ease stress and improve circulation.

Indian Head Massage is suitable for most people and it is particularly beneficial for those who experience stress, tension and anxiety. Additionally, Indian Head Massage can be adapted for individuals with special needs, such as the elderly or those with limited mobility. However, if do you suffer from any pre-existing medical conditions or concerns, you should seek advice from a healthcare professional before receiving treatment.
