Indian head massage is based on ancient Ayurvedic principles, that help to relieve stress, reduce tension and improve flexibility in the shoulders, neck and arms. It boosts circulation which can help to reduce hair loss, premature balding and greying, and relieves scalp conditions.
Indian Head Massage may relieve: stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. It leaves the client deeply calmed and relaxed, often feeling energised, revitalised and better able to concentrate.
In Indian Head Massage all areas of the scalp are worked on. Particular areas of the head and scalp are connected to other organs and systems of the body by ‘energy pathways’ or ‘meridians’. This means that the treatment is holistic affecting the whole body; stimulating the release of toxins and revitalising the body.
It is an non-invasive massage, performed over clothing, Indian Head Massage focuses on the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face and ears using a range of different techniques including Champi ( original message), Tabla (Nerve stroking movements), Plucking and Chakra Balancing. Each of these movements have a significance.
The main muscles being stimulated are the trapezius muscle at the back of the neck and shoulder. This is where we store most of our tension, knots and stiffness. Pressure points along the ear, neck and forehead are gently worked on. Alongside acupressure points on the face, to relieve sinus pressure, stimulate circulation and increase alertness. Depending on the patient, organic oils can be used.
