Indian Head Massage
What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic practice that has been used in India for over 5000 years, and requires no oils or equipment, making it a very accessible treatment, perfect for newcomers to massage. Indian Head Massage is a safe, accessible, and convenient therapeutic treatment that can be performed with the client seated through light clothing at home or in the workplace. Head massage can provide instant relief from tension and stress related symptoms and induce a deep state of calm, peace and tranquillity as well as promoting high levels of alertness and concentration.
This simple yet effective therapy uses a variety of techniques to manipulate soft tissue. I use a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate the head, neck, and upper back and shoulder area. This massage will typically last for around 40 minutes.
What are the Benefits of Indian Head Massage?
Clients who visit me for Indian Head Massage are typically seeking relief from muscular aches and pains in the shoulders and neck that also lead to tension headaches. Indian head massage aims to loosen the scalp and promote deep relaxation. Other benefits of receiving a head massage are:
• Improves circulation of blood and oxygen to the scalp which can promote healthy hair growth
• Immediate relief from muscular pain and stiffness
• Relaxation of the whole body.
• Stimulation and improvement of the circulation of the lymphatic system.
• Help in the relief of eyestrain and tension headaches.
• Excellent for disturbed sleep and insomnia
• Help with mental tiredness and tension.
• Improved concentration.
• Relief from mental and emotional stress.
I have extensive training in complementary therapies that includes Ayurvedic techniques and Indian head massage. I have always been fascinated by the Indian medical system and practice yoga regularly myself. I have travelled to India and have received a number of authentic Indian head massages, techniques of which I incorporate into my own massage practice. I am dedicated to professional development and I am always seeking new techniques that I feel may benefit my clients.
What to Expect
Before your first treatment, I will go through an initial consultation form with you in order to establish any contraindications and expected outcomes of treatment. Your treatments may need to be adapted depending on this information.
This Indian head massage routine can be performed with you sitting on a on-site massage chair over light clothing. Following on from the initial consultation I will give you time to sit down comfortably on the chair. I will then begin the massage on the head followed by the neck, shoulders, back, arms, hands and face. Your massage will last around 40 minutes. If you have any concerns during this time then please do not hesitate to speak to me throughout the treatment.
I like to play relaxing therapy music during my massage treatments, as it can help you to relax and unwind. However, please let me know if you would prefer not to have this. My aim is for you to be comfortable, relaxed and content in order to get the most out of your treatment.
After your massage you should feel relaxed and may feel sleepy, so it is important to give yourself plenty of time to unwind. Make the most of having every muscle in your body gently stretched and smoothed out. Please drink plenty of water after your massage in order to help your body eliminate any toxins released from the muscles.
