What is an Indian Head Massage?
This Massage of head, neck and shoulders works on the areas which hold the greatest amount of tension and helps relaxation, creating a general feeling of well-being. The technique used is based on ancient Ayurvedic healing techniques. It is one of the most widely practiced complementary therapies in the West and involves massaging the head, face, neck, shoulders and upper back. Head massage has long been an integral part of Indian life.
What are the health benefits?
Indian head massage is deeply relaxing, which can prove to be a powerful preventive medicine in today's often stress-choked, fast-paced lifestyle. It also can help the physical side-effects of stress, such as:
Some people also report feeling more energised and alert after a treatment.
Sessions normally last 30 minutes, although some therapists may allow extra time for you to rest before leaving.
Is it safe?
Indian head massage is gentle, safe and non-invasive and just about anyone would benefit from a treatment. It is not recommended, however, if you have recently suffered a skull fracture or any other serious head injury. Infants should not receive a treatment until their skull bones have fully fused.
