Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is a deeply relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. Indian head massage aims to leave you deeply relaxed and rebalance the body’s (nervous system) energies. Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic healing system. It has been successfully practised in India for over a thousand years, traditionally used to ease stress and relieve tension. Massage stimulates blood, lymph and oxygen flow to the head, face and upper body. This form of massage may help relieve sinusitis, reduce stress and sleep better. The massage may help cure headaches (even migraine), eye strain and anxiety; some say it allows you to concentrate better at work.

What to expect from an Indian head massage

During the treatment, a unique blend of essential oils is chosen specifically for you and blended with a base of pure warm carrier oils. The warms oils are massaged into the shoulders, arms, neck, scalp, hair and face using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck. Indian head massage eases tension by treating acupressure points on the head and upper body. Gentle massaging of the head and shoulders helps relieve muscle tension in the scalp and neck muscles. Anxiety and tension can be the primary cause of headaches, tired eyes, and stress. After the massage, a relaxing facial massage is applied with gentle pressure points to stimulate the liver. Easing toxins into the lymphatic system helps to restore balance and wellbeing.

Before you go

Wear loose-fitting clothing, so you don’t feel restricted or uncomfortable. It’s a good idea not to have too many layers. For an Indian head massage, the therapist will want to massage your neck and shoulders, even your upper back. A polo neck is probably a bad idea, as is complicated or tight-fitting underwear. Remember that you may have oils rubbed into your scalp. You might want to take a cap or hair “Alice” band with you to make yourself look respectable on your way home or back at work. An Indian head massage treatment will probably take around an hour. Your therapist will chat with you before the treatment. It is essential to have a clear idea of your lifestyle and any particular aches, pains or ailments. They may ask about any medical treatments or medications, as this might affect which oils are used and influence the direction of the treatment, such as pressure and technique.
