What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for over a thousand years as part of everyday family life as a form of grooming.
Indian head massage was brought to the west by Narendra Mehta in the 1970's and the therapy was extended to include the face, ears, neck, shoulders and upper arms. Indian Head Massage works on areas affected by mental and emotional stress.
In Western culture today we spend much of our time in our heads, so this treatment can really help to calm the mind and is surprisingly deeply relaxing. The treatment uses a form of massage which includes shiatsu and acupressure techniques. It helps to relieve muscular discomfort and tension as well as calming the spirit and aiding relaxation. It also improves circulation in the head, enhances the senses and promotes clear thinking.
What can I expect during an Indian Head Massage?
The massage usually begins with the upper back, where a combination of deep massage and pressure points help to relax the muscles and to loosen knots. Moving through the shoulders and upper arms further releases the common areas for holding stress and tension, and then working deeply into the neck where tension accumulates relieves headaches and improves cerebral spinal fluid circulation. Moving up to the scalp, techniques are used that stimulate, relax and revive the whole of the head, increasing circulation and promoting healthy hair. Finally, a gentle face massage with techniques that may help circulation, skin tone, sinus and headache problems.
