Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. It aims to rebalance your body's energies. Indian Head Massage helps increase mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders. It improves blood circulation, lymphatic flow and aids elimination of toxins and is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension... How does an Indian Head Massage treatment work? The aim of an Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. An Indian Head Massage works with the Ayurvedic concept, which, goes beyond the limits of healing and places emphasis on balance. Working on the chakras has a powerful effect and can bring the energy of the whole body back into balance. So what are the benefits... There are many benefits from an Indian Head Massage treatment and the therapeutic effects are found to last long after the treatment is over. The short and long term benefits are individual, varied and cumulative and can lead to a greater feeling of self awareness, which often brings the additional benefits of a change to a healthier lifestyle... Relaxation: Indian Head Massage involves massage and acupressure techniques manipulating the soft tissues on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. The effect is not just physical: it works on an emotional level too, calming the mind, promoting relaxation. Headache relief: One of the most common stress related complaints are headaches. One in three individuals consult their doctor with this symptom every year, and 95% of the population suffer from them at some time. Massageing the scalp, face, neck and shoulders relieves eyestrain, improves concentration, eliminates muscular tension and can help alleviate headaches. Reduce stress: Massageing the head encourages the supply of oxygen to the brain, which is one of the best ways of reducing anxiety and of lifting your mood. Clear thinking: The increase in oxygen flow helps you think clearly and creatively, the same effect is brought about through exercising. Detoxifies the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage: Indian Head Massage stimulates and improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow to the neck thus helping to remove waste products from the body. Relieves sleeplessness, restlessness and insomnia: These are often side-effects of stress and Indian Head Massage will immediately relieve stress and promote relaxation by attacking the physical symptoms, thus allowing for a deeper sense of wellbeing and relaxation and opening your body to better rest. Renews energy levels: An Indian Head Massage works with the Ayurvedic concept which goes beyond the limits of healing and places emphasis on balance. Working on the chakras through Indian Massage has a powerful effect in bringing the energy of the body back into balance. Boosts memory capabilities: Often we have short-term memory difficulties because our brains are overloaded with disorganised thoughts, making it very difficult for us to efficiently ‘log’ and collect thoughts and occurrences. 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.
