The Indian Head Massage is a recent addition to our range of treatments and therefore some of our visitors may be unaware of what it is, what a treatment entails and what the benefits are. That’s why we decided to write up this handy guide to Indian head massages.

Woman receiving Indian head massageWhat is Indian head massage?

The Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that dates back thousands of years. The massage takes into account mind, body and spirit.

It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck. This stimulates blood flow and helps to regain focus and memory.

There is a belief that the human body has a natural balance of energy flowing. The Indian head massage restores the energy, helping physical, mental and emotional health.

What are Indian head massage benefits?

Yes, the massage is extremely relaxing but relaxing doesn’t do it justice. As mentioned before, the massage affects mind, body and spirit. Aside from being deeply relaxing, the massage can relieve aches and tension in the neck, back and shoulders and relieve stress.

List of Indian head massage benefits:

  • Improve concentration
  • Reduce migraines
  • Increase energy
  • Frees knots and tension
  • Reduces stress

What to expect from an Indian head massage

The Indian head massage can last anywhere between 30 and 45 minutes. After a consultation with the practitioner about your lifestyle and any aches, pains or medical conditions you may have, the massage will begin.

If you’ve never had a head massage before, some of the strokes may seem firm but stick with it. When it comes to the scalp, you are likely to have oils rubbed into it. The oils nourish the hair and calm the nervous system.

After the massage, expect to experience a strange feeling. This is completely normal and is a good sign of your body releasing toxins.
