What is Indian Head Massage?
As the name suggests, it is a massage therapy focusing on the head, neck, and shoulder area. It’s a deep form of massage that combines deep kneading, acupressure, and lymphatic drainage to relieve tension and stress. This massage aims to increase circulation, reduce stress and tension, and promote relaxation.
Benefits of Head Massage
One of the main benefits of Indian Head Massage is that it effectively reduces stress and anxiety. The massage works by relaxing the muscles in the head, neck, and shoulder areas which in turn reduces tension and helps to calm the mind. It can also help improve mood and combat symptoms of depression, such as insomnia and lack of energy.
This massage technique also benefits those suffering from headaches and migraines. The massage can help to reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches by targeting pressure points in the head and neck area. Moreover, the massage increases blood flow to the head, which also helps to reduce tension and promote relaxation.
Another significant benefit of Indian Head Massage is that it can improve hair and scalp health. It stimulates hair growth, strengthens hair roots, and nourishes the scalp. Furthermore, it helps to remove dead skin cells and increase circulation, reducing dandruff and other scalp conditions.
How Is Head Massage Performed?
Typically, an Indian Head Massage treatment lasts between 30-60 minutes, depending on the client's individual needs. During the treatment, the therapist will use their fingers, hands, and sometimes elbows to apply pressure to pressure points on the head, neck, and shoulder areas. The massage starts with gentle techniques to help you relax, before progressing to deeper techniques to relieve tension and stress.
