Indian Head Massage

In our daily lives, muscles tighten due to emotional and physical stress and the tight muscles impede the free movement of the neck and shoulders. Indian Head Massage helps by using a variety of stimulating and tension-releasing techniques.

Indian Head Massage works on both a physical and a mental level. By concentrating on the areas most vulnerable to stress and tension, it provides a de-stressing programme for the whole body. Relieving tension in these key areas unlocks the energy trapped in the muscles, encouraging the flow of the blood and thereby re-energising every part of the body. The results of freeing up this energy are felt on a mental, physical and spiritual level.

Indian Head Massage has a far-reaching effect on every one of the body’s systems. It supports the nervous system by alleviating stress. By stimulating the lymphatic system, the process of eliminating toxins and poisons is encouraged, and our bodies are cleansed and purified more efficiently. The circulatory and immune system are stimulated, and the respiratory system is reinforced, as deep breathing is encouraged. The shoulder area acts as a buffer between the mind and the body, and attitudes to responsibilities and suppressed feelings can all be reflected in this area of the body. Movement in the upper arm helps to relax overused muscles, this helps improve mobility in the shoulder joints.

Massage of the face and scalp reduces the number of tension headaches and in some cases eliminates them.
