This wonderful treatment originated in ancient India and is a massage of the face, neck, shoulders, arms and scalp, which can be performed whilst the client is unclothed or fully clothed. The use of essential oils can be combined with the treatment for optimum benefit.
An Indian Head Massage consists of gentle soothing strokes which manipulate the thin layer of muscle covering the skull. When we are feeling tense and stressed this muscle tightens over the skull, exacerbating the tension.
Through the light, rhythmic movements of the massage, the muscle covering the skull is relaxed and soothed. This is an ideal treatment for the work place as it can be performed whilst the client is still sitting at his or her desk. Indian Head Massage is particularly good for combatting depression and to relieve the stresses and strains of office life. The scalp, face, neck and shoulders are all energy centres where tension can accumulate and this massage will soothe and re-balance the energy flow, creating feelings of ease, peace and relaxation.
