Indian head massage developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and spirit to promote a long and healthy life. We all need an opportunity to unwind, relax and re-balance. Indian head massage is suitable for all ages and can help with relaxation, reducing levels of tension, promoting restful sleep and boosting the immune system. Also the oils and the massage techniques used on the scalp can improve the condition of the hair and promote healthy hair growth.
THE BENEFITS OF INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE Often tension in the upper back, neck, shoulders and head can lead to migraines, headaches and back pain which can make for uncomfortable living on a day to day basis and sometimes even lead to depression.
The treatment combines different massage movements and techniques and also works on applying pressure to marma points in the upper back, arms and shoulders that will release muscles and knots. They will then move to the neck and head to reduce headache-causing blockages and encourage better circulation of the cerebral fluid.
