Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practised in India for more than a thousand years. It works on both the physical and the mental level. Physically, it helps all the systems of the body the immune nervous, respiratory, endocrine, circulation, muscular, skeletal and lymphatic. Mentally, it helps the mind to relax, transmitting a life-giving energy that assists all systems of the body to restore and renew themselves.

Massing the scalp increases blood flow to the hair follicles, which speeds the delivery of vital nutrients, oxygen and a waste disposal system that eliminates toxins. While all this is happening beneath the skin, up on the surface desquamation is occurring. This is when dead skin cells are removed and the regeneration process is stimulated.

Rubbing the scalp stimulates the production of sebum, the skins natural oil. This oil then gets distributed throughout the scalp. Sebum works to condition, nourish and protect the hair follicle, hair root and hair shaft simultaneously. It also lubricates the bulb and follicle where the hair is pushed out from the pore.

Massaging the area will induce relaxation, allowing optimal blood flow to resume. Healthy skin and hair are not the only benefits of head massage. After only a few minutes, headaches can reduce along with fatigue and fatigue-related symptoms.

Another relaxation-booster, which is often triggered during a head massage is an extremely pleasant sensation known as ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). Most people have experienced this sensation at one point or another during their life, described as euphoric tingles that occur in the head and emanate through the rest of the body. When we physically relax, our mind soon follows and vice versa. The physiological benefits of relaxation are tremendous and essential for a good quality of life

Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and light and deep kneading, compression and stretching movements over the neck, shoulder to realise blockages and relieve built-up tension.

The therapist will also gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face. This face massage helps any sinus problems as well as increasing the relaxing effect of the massage that has been applied. A treatment lasts up to forty-five minutes.
