What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. Indian families use massage on a daily basis for relaxation and healing. It is a part of many rituals such as weddings and births.
The traditional indian form of scalp massage has evolved in the West to become Indian Head Massage and is a combination of ancient techniques and classic swedish massage movements that focus on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face.
Benefits of Treatment
The skull is covered with a thick layer of muscle which tightens when we feel stress or tension resulting in headaches and feelings of anxiety. The head and hair are very sensitive as they are full of nerve endings. This makes them very receptive to touch, massaging the head and hair can be deeply soothing and relaxing whilst also being invigorating and energising.
IHM is extremely effective for treating stress as it works on the areas of the body most effected.
- may reduce symptoms of sinusitis, migraines, headaches, sleep related disorder, muscle tension and fatigue
- rebalances vital energy flow and instills a sense of peace and tranquillity
- increased blood and lymph circulation resulting in the release of toxins and improving the function of the immune system
What to expect during a treatment session
Treatments usually take place in my dedicated treatment room, or in the comfort of your own home. There will be a brief consultation to ensure there are no contraindications to your treatment, during which we will discuss your general health and well being and what you want to achieve from your massage.
This is a seated massage treatment. You dont have to remove any clothes if you prefer not to. You will also have the option of the use of oil for your scalp massage.
** Whilst I have no doubt that you will feel fabulous after your Indian Head Massage, your hair may not look so great. Whether you have chosen to have the use of oils or not, your hair will look tousled and possibly like you havent washed your conditioner out properly for quite a few days! I recommend you bring a hair brush or maybe a hat to wear to go home**
