Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years, and is incredibly relaxing. Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders. It is a deep massage, which uses a variety of pressure and techniques that tap into your seven "'chakras" or paths of energy and encourage healing and balance in your whole body. Indian head massage has become a popular component of combined treatments or rituals, including massage and facials.
This form of massage focuses on the three higher "chakras" - mind, body and spirit and as such hits your energy epicentre. It doesn't seem sufficient to say that a good, long Indian head massage (involving proper neck and shoulder and back massage as well) will relax you. It's more than this. It should actually make you feel detached and serene, and leave you sighing and wordless. Even if you don't experience this level of relaxation, this massage treatment offers all kinds of other benefits. It will relieve aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, improve the texture of your hair and encourage it to grow. An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body which will clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better. And because it can help cure headaches (even migraine!), eye strain and anxiety, an Indian head massage can even help you to concentrate better at work. What's more, the use of fragrant oils can stimulate as well as relax you, clearing your head, and soothing you even further. All in all, an Indian head massage will leave you feeling happier and more relaxed all round.
