Indian head massage is an integral part of the Ayurvedic healing system that originated in India thousands of years ago and has been passed down through generations. The art was developed by and for women in India with the aim of stimulating long, healthy hair.
Indian head massage is a technique of manipulating soft tissues in the shoulders and scalp. The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate the head and neck area. A typical massage lasts about 40 minutes.
Indian head massage usually begins with working on the upper back and shoulders. A range of massage techniques and pressure on release points helps to relax and loosen the muscles.
Moving upwards from the back into the shoulders and upper arms helps release tension in muscles such as trapezius and levator scapulae. Headaches are alleviated and the circulation of the cerebral spinal fluid is improved.
Continuing with the upward movement, the scalp is then massaged using techniques that stimulate, relax and revive the entire head and scalp. This increases circulation and can promote healthy hair growth.
My treatment ends with a gentle face massage to aid circulation, improve skin tone, and reduce sinus and headache problems.
