Indian Head Massage is a traditional Indian technique of treating the upper back, neck, shoulders, face and scalp, with the recipient remaining clothed. A treatment offers many benefits including stimulating and improving scalp circulation which in turn can help strengthen and grow hair. It releases tension from the jaw and smooths out face muscles, energy increases as the circulation and respiratory systems open to provide fresh oxygen to vital organs. By massaging the head and shoulders, energies will become rebalanced and a general feeling of relaxation will be achieved. Indian Head Massage can improve blood flow to the head and neck, which increases the distribution of nutrients to encourage healing throughout the body.
This is both a relaxing and stimulating treatment which can take place on any chair, even in the workplace. It can be added onto the beginning or end of a reflexology treatment or as a shorter treatment on its own.Treatment is carried out to the upper back, across the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp and face, with the client remaining fully clothed and seated in an everyday chair. Because the treatment is non-invasive, it may be undertaken anywhere.
The therapeutic effects of Indian Head Massage last long after the treatment is over. The short and long-term benefits are individual, varied and cumulative and may help to:
- Relieve eyestrain and headaches
- Improve concentration
- Relieve physical and mental fatigue
- Improve joint mobility
- Relieve stress and muscular tension
As well as being a relaxing encounter, it can also be an invigorating and refreshing experience. The recipient of the treatment will often report a ‘balanced’ feeling of peace and calm and will usually feel more alert and revitalised following a treatment.
Holistic Therapies such as Indian Head Massage and Reflexology aim to treat the whole person and not the symptoms of the disease. Indian Head Massage helps to restore a state of balance by relieving stress through the body’s natural healing process. Once the body is “in tune”, it is wise to have regular treatments to help maintain a state of balance.Reflexology and Indian Head Massage does not diagnose or cure, but promotes the mental and physical conditions necessary to foster positive good health and prevent ill health.Treatments can be carried out at home or in the workplace in a convenient quiet location. The client remains clothed at all times, which makes the treatment an ideal solution for workplace attendance, and will give immediate relief from workday stress.
