Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for thousands of years and is a tradition of intergenerational family massage. Originally developed by women as part of their grooming routine, it has spread to barbers who also practice and use many of these skills when cutting men’s hair.
Indian Head Massage works with a firm but gentle rhythm to help un-knot blockages and relieve the uncomfortable build up of tension. The treatment will also work on an emotional level, calming the spirit, promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
The massage usually begins with the upper back, where a combination of deep massage and pressure points help to relax the muscles and to loosen and melt knots. Moving through the shoulders and upper arms further releases the common spots for holding stress and tension, and then working deeply into the neck where tension accumulates. This relieves headaches and improves cerebral spinal fluid circulation. Moving up to the scalp, techniques are used that stimulate, relax and revive the whole of the head, increasing circulation and promoting healthy hair. Finally the treatment may include a gentle face massage with techniques to help circulation, skin tone, sinus and headache problems.
Once completed, you will have time to just “be”, laying quietly to embrace the feelings of calmness and wellbeing.
The treatment is performed without using oils and with you fully clothed laying down on a couch.
