Truly a beautiful and relaxing massage. Here is a little bit of history and temptation for you….
Indian head massage originated over 1000 years ago where mothers would massage their daughters scalp to keep their hair in good condition. Barbers would also give their men clients an Indian Head massage after their haircut and shave to refresh their clients.
Traditional Indian Head massages would originally just include the head and scalp. Modern Indian Head massage now includes the head, hair, neck, shoulders, arms, back and face…absolute bliss. You are in a seated position unlike traditional massages of lying on a massage table. Believe it or not having an Indian Head massage in a seated position you can still nod off to sleep.
The massage pressure is a firm but gentle pressure with rhythmic circular movements that involve acupressure points called Marma Points. Ayurvedic oils were the traditional oils to use, but today a variety of different oils are used such as coconut oil, herbal tintures or even special blend oils to suit each client.
Indian head massage can be used to:
- relieve eyestrain
- relieve insomnia
- ease headaches and migraine
- relax muscles
- relax and tones facial muscles
- stimulate the hair and scalp
- help localized blood and lymphatic circulation
- boost the immune system
- restore joint movement
- relieve sinusitis
- reduce stress
- release anxiety
- Indian Head Massage slows us down, sensual awareness takes over, thoughts quieten and awareness is brought to the forefront. Think of it like someone pressing your ‘reset’ button.
As you can see there are just so many benefits to having an Indian Head Massage. It really is a massage that you need to experience to believe how beneficial it can be for your mind, body and spirit.
