Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage has been an important part of Indian life for over four thousand years. The neck, shoulders, back and head are massaged to release tension and stress using a variety of strokes and pressure point techniques. It becomes in effect a de-stressing programme for the whole body and thus eliminates toxins from tense knotted muscles, relieves stiffness and improves lymph and blood circulation.
Indian head massage also works on areas affected by mental and emotional stress and can bring immediate relief. It also improves circulation in the head and enhances your senses, improves memory and promotes clear thinking. This type of massage induces a sense of calmness, tranquility and releases anxieties. It helps to improve concentration and alertness, relieves mental and physical tiredness, edginess and depression. Treatment can be given dry without oils and fully clothes however it is more beneficial with the use of oils.
Once finished this massage will give you a feeling of calm and relaxation.
