Indian head massage is a relaxing ancient therapeutic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. It has been practiced in India for thousands of years. It aims to rebalance and harmonize your body’s energies by working on the three higher chakras.
This relaxing upper back, neck, scalp and facial massage based on Indian traditions and techniques promote deep relaxation and well being.
Indian head massage works on areas affected by mental and emotional stress and its proponents say that it can bring immediate relief. It is also said to improve circulation in the head, enhance the senses, improve memory and promote clear thinking.
An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body, and therefore may clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better. And because it is said to help cure headaches (even migraine), eye strain and anxiety, some say an Indian head massage can help you to concentrate better at work.
It doesn’t seem sufficient to say that a good Indian head massage will relax you. It’s more than this. A professional Indian Head Massage should in fact feel almost like a reflexology massage, which is performed on the feet, but is felt throughout the entire body. This is because there are several important acupressure points on the head.
Indian head massage may be dry, or oils may be used. The oils not only nourish the hair, but also calm the nervous system, as the roots of one’s hair are connected to nerve fibre.
