Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a simple, safe and highly beneficial therapy which has been popular for over a thousand years. It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy which is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system and Chakra balancing.
The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate the head, neck, and upper back and shoulder area. Massage of the scalp, face, neck, and shoulders soothes, comforts and rebalances to produce a feeling of peace and tranquility.
Often tension in the upper back, neck, and head can lead to migraines, headaches and back pain which can make for uncomfortable living on a day to day basis and sometimes even lead to depression.
A massage therapist will start the Indian Head Massage by applying pressure to points in the upper back, arms and shoulders that will release muscles and knots. They will then move to the neck and head to reduce headache-causing blockages and encourage better circulation of the cerebral fluid.
