Originating in India over one thousand years ago, Indian Head Massage is now gaining popularity in the West. Based on ancient Ayurvedic techniques, Gandhi is amongst its champions. He enjoyed a daily massage, crediting Indian Head Massage with stimulating his energy levels and keeping him in touch with his spiritual mind.
This delightful therapy, involves massage of the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, ears and face. Incorporating firm, yet gentle rhythmic movements and acupressure points, we focus on key areas of the body, such as the neck and shoulders, where stress affects major muscle groups. Treatment often brings immediate relief as tensions are eased and fibrous knots and nodules melt away. Efficiency of the circulatory and lymphatic systems improve, toxins are dispersed from tense muscles, and flexibility and fluidity of movement is restored.
Clients remain seated in an upright position during treatment. Although it is possible to perform Indian Head Massage without removing clothing, it’s advisable to wear a vest top or something that allows access to the upper back and shoulders (large bath towels will be provided).
The techniques used in Indian head massage are simple and effective and result in a truly relaxing and energising experience.
