Indian head massage has been practised in India for over a thousand years. It provides Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in rituals such as weddings and births, not to mention everyday events like a trip to the barber!
The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. This is achieved by using a range of different movements including deep kneading, friction and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas whilst the client is seated. In addition, the pressure points on your face will also be gently stimulated.
The client can be clothed during the session but for additional relaxation the use of oil is recommended, for modesty you will be given a wrap-around towel to wear.
The benefits of Indian head massage:
- Can help relieve stress and tension
