Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is part of the Ayurvedic tradition of medicine which is the oldest system of healing in India. It can be traced back over 4000 years. It is based on holistic principles of promoting health through maintaining a balance between body, mind and Spirit.
Indian head massage is a technique of manipulating soft tissue in the shoulders and scalp, using a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to also stimulate the head and neck area. I will also use different techniques to massage the hands and arms.
The benefits of Indian head massage are:
- Aids the circulatory, muscular and nervous system
- Stimulates arterial circulation and increases blood and lymphatic flow
- Reduces stress levels and can induce a feeling of euphoria
- Frees knots of muscular tension and relaxes connective tissue
- Stimulates the skin and underlying nerve endings
- Aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products
Indian head massage will stimulate the upper 4 chakras Heart, Throat Third Eye and Crown. This is why it can have such a beneficial effect both physically and emotionally aiding relaxation and alleviate stress.
During an Indian head massage the chakras can be rebalanced encompassing a holistic aspect to the session (metal, physical, emotional and spiritual).
Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy which are usually located about an inch off the body. They carry prana energy (an Indian word meaning ‘life force energy’) throughout the system and are also linked to meridians and minor chakra. In order that health be maintained all chakras should carry a free flow of prana and not be blocked or out of balance with each other. Indian head massage is an effective treatment on its own, but it can also be combined with Crystals and or oil adding to the benefits (This can be discussed beforehand to check for any allergies and contraindications).
