What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian Head Massage began as a technique focusing on massage of the head but has evolved over time. The technique I follow also incorporates the upper back, shoulders, arms and neck.
Although the treatment focuses on the upper part of the body, it has a beneficial relaxing result on the whole body, enabling relief form stress and from muscular tension.
The treatment I give is through clothing, with the client seated on a chair. So, it’s quite accessible as it doesn’t require undressing or the use of oils. If you can’t lie flat due to pain, discomfort or breathlessness, you can still receive a relaxing massage treatment.
Origins of Indian Head Massage
As its name suggest, this massage originated in India. It is a common practice within families for bonding, and care of each other’s health and wellbeing. Family members may give each other a head massage weekly, or even daily, which reinforces the loving bond as well as ensuring optimum health, reducing stress and muscular tension and boosting the immune system.
