Indian Head Massage

 
 
 


Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. Traditionally it is handed down within Indian families where it provides daily relaxation and, contributes to rituals such as weddings and births.



How does it work?


Indian head massage aims to release the tension that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.



What does it involve?


You may remain fully clothed, or remove the outer layer of clothes only. The therapy is conducted while you sit in a chair. Various massage movements are used on the neck, shoulder and scalp areas, and pressure points on the face are stimulated. 



What are the benefits?


Indian head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue, and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for releasing tension in the muscle of the scalp that can often lead to tension headaches. Relaxation is also a key benefit.



What are the side effects and when should it be avoided?


Following a treatment you may experience tiredness, dizziness, an increased desire to urinate (as the body eliminates toxins and waste materials) or aching muscles. All of these side effects usually last for no more than a few hours, after which most people generally experience increased energy and alertness.


Indian head massage should be avoided if you have had recent surgery, or a head or neck injury; a history of thrombosis or embolism; spondylitis or spondylosis. If you have high or low blood pressure, diabetes, epilepsy, any kind of heart condition, cancer or osteoporosis, talk to your doctor before arranging a treatment. Always make sure that you avoid alcohol for at least five hours before the treatment.
