This is an ancient art which is still an every day tradition in India to alleviate the effects of stress and tension by inducing deep relaxation, it assists the body in producing ‘endorphins’- hormones which block pain and are associated with feeling good and energised.
We advise clients to shower before having an aromatherapy treatment so that you can leave the oils soaking into your skin for the rest of the evening for a more effective treatment
Indian Head Massage works on specific areas of the body, including the neck and the shoulders, where stress affects major muscle groups, and can bring immediate relief. Each treatment works on the shoulders, neck, scalp, face & upper arms, and takes no longer than half an hour. Tensions are eased or eradicated and fibrous knots and nodules melt away. The efficiency of the circulatory and lymphatic systems improves, toxins are dispersed from tense muscles and flexibility and fluidity of movement is restored.
There is no need to use oils or undress, although easy access is required to the neck area - the client just sits in an ordinary chair & relaxes - and treatment will last around 30 minutes. It also involves working on the upper 3 chakra’s encouraging energy flow and releasing any blockages encouraging balance and harmony.
Indian Head Massage has many benefits both mentally and physically and can be an aid in preventing certain problems such as:
It can reduce depression an increase concentration as more fresh oxygen and nutrients are encouraged to flow to the brain. It also improves circulation and texture and strength of hair growth.
